I thought I would start a thread dedicated to the restoration of my 145 qv.
I bought it just before xmas for £73! Car has 110k on it however 1 owner from new. It was a company car for a chap in London for the first 3 years, then entered the family. I damaged the bursa in my shoulder around...
Hello, I've been offered an R-reg 145 1.8 in part ex against my facelift 145 Cloverleaf.
I know the owner, so not worried about the car being dodgy but just thought I'd see what people think as I'm unsure.
Mines out of TAX and insurance tomorrow, so it wont be used anyway and I'm prepared to...
I have previously owned a 145 1.7, currently on a 145 Cloverleaf and as of yesterday a new owner of a 147 Selespeed!!
I pick it up in three weeks (cos of holidays) and have a few questions.
1. Can you download the manuals from anywhere on the web?
2. Is there any information on nav+ as it...
I'm almost afraid to let you lot know, since I might be selling mine soonish.
It's a 98R, Proteo red, just had belts and variator done, got air-con.
89k miles. wants £2395 for it.
If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll pass on details.
Don't expect mine to be this cheap when I sell it...
This bit has dropped off the 145. I think it is off the catalyst. It's like a heat shield or outer skin. It had corroded around the welds on one side and hung down. I pulled it off from the other side, so that side was obviously on its way out.
Is it OK to drive the car...
I'm getting a bit cheesed off now.
A few months ago, the 145 conked out and needed a new MAF. Prior to this, it occasionally wouldn't start when hot, and after a few minutes it would. We could never really pin down what was happening and after the new MAF was fitted, it seemed OK.
Driving in rain yesterday and today I decided that it wasn't torrential, but I needed a semi- intemittent wipe. On moving my wiper stalk to the intermittent position, nothing happened, again and again on moving it up and down, twiddling the speed ring back and forwards, then after awhile it...
~Two weeks ago something bizzare happened to me on the highway. Driving at about 120km/h. My hazard lights started going off, by themselves. It was quite confusing as I didn’t know which way to turn, ha!
A strange sound came from the fuse box an extra fast hazard sorta
sound, it stopped once i...
Funny one this.
Our 145QV has suddenly become reluctant to rev over say 4,500 which is where it normally takes off. First thoughts were a blocked exhaust. Tried a whole new system from the cat back. Made no diffference. Took cat off. No real difference. There doesn't seem to be...
Alrighty people ,
Has anyone chipped or re-mapped their 145QV?
I`ve just sent the ECU etc.... to Autodelta and won`t have it back till Tuesday. What extra thrills should I be expecting ?
I can`t wait to find out for myself.
Also, I need new brake pads. Has anyone got any experience to...
Has anyone any idea about the common price of a set of 15' 145QV rims (the old ones)?
In Greece they ask for 1000Euros (new)and I cant find any used ones. Its to much especially if you also need new tires (1000+500E).
I look in german market and I almost had them (but used this time)for only...
