  2. I am not offended at all its very interesting hearing every ones point og view. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  3. Some very well.made points looks like I have started.something Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  4. Am going to buy a set of steel rims as don't want to wreck my momo wheels over winter. Will go for a set of winter tyres and tempted with a set of all season tyres on my alloys. Will report my findings. Seems a good talking point Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Yes my car is fwd but just want some better grip Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  6. We have had snow and Ice for the last few years not a lot but I have had bad experiences owning rwd cars and getting very little grip. Maybe parking the car up over winter is not a bad idea and getting a set of winter tyres for our galaxy Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  7. Thinking of putting some winter tyres on any one had any experience? Any brands to avoid? Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  8. The dash has no rounded screws and looks fine. However I do know that the car sat for a number of years unused. The feed for the speed is magnetic so no electronic witchcraft problems. I think I will buy a set of dials and see what happens. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  9. Even at single digit speeds Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  10. Yep 10mph at all speed when I the sat nav reads 30 the dash is reading 40mph and so on. When I first got the car just over a week the speedo cut out completly along with the fuel gauge so may be the cluster is faulty. But as I paid £310 for the car with 10 months mot and a 4 months tax custom exhaust from powerflow, pipercross induction kit st220 lights and a perfect set of momos I expected a few issues. Also the previous own removed the rust from the rear arches and filled and put rust prevention I need to sort the paint out on these as well, unless someone knows of a nice wide arch kit as I have 40mm spacers I would like to fit!

  11. Been using my sat nav app that gives me a true reading hence why I found the speedo was out by 10mph at least its a round number. I will investigate the tyre size as looking to get some winter tyes. Pics up soon I promise :D Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  12. Thanks will give those all a try Once again thanks for your help Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
  13. Hi All I have just purchased a ST24 on a 97 plate, I sold my mk2 golf as I got bored of the dub scene after 15 years so I thought I would try something new. I am very pleased with the car but have a few little issues the are niggling me, don't get me wrong I new there would be a few things to sort for the age of the car. When I first got the car the speedo kept cutting out, I cleaned the connections speedo works now but is reading 10 miles per hour higher than it should be, I am not running stock wheels not sure of the original size but I am running 17'' Momos. Washer spray is not working, filled it up today and I can here the pump but now spray and the nozzles are clean. Airbag/seat belt light started flashing today. Headlights seem noisy sounds light the adjuster is moving all the time. Any advice most welcome.
  14. Hi Thought I would drop by and say Hello, I have left the darkside after selling my MK2 Golf. I have just purchased a ST24 and I have to say I am very impressed with it and with price I paid :) Few little issues I need to solve but hey every car has a few issues. Hoping to get lots of help from you guys Cheers Chris
