end of first day of driving lots of niggles :-(
Hello All, I picked up my 1999 3.0 GTV yesterday and put a days driving in today. Here is a list of things I've found and would like to fix: The car has been in storage for a while and came out and was serviced and MOT'd before pick up.
- Lazy syncro going from 2nd up to 3rd slight crunch 7 out of 10 times. Fine coming at third any other way but not going up from 2nd. Could it be anything other than expensive :-)
- The suspension has Spax springs fitted (25mm lower I was told) looks great but the back end rubs over bumps all the time, and the old damping doesn't seem to be able to cope so firm and bouncy. Can I raise the ride height without new springs if not can I just replace the springs on the back with standard height? New dampers required what type?
- Twitchy front end, seams to flick straight to over steer. I'm not sure if that is normal?
Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated,
