  1. My much-loved Westfield SEiW is for sale. Excellent car, set up for performance, agility and every day driveability. I’ve owned it for a few years and it’s always been reliable, even for touring. I'm told it was set up and corner weighted by Northampton motorsport. The car has an age-related H plate but was completed and registered in 2007. It’s been well looked after, always garaged and due to lack of weather gear, used only in dry conditions. It currently has 12,462 miles on the clock (might change due to use) and MOT until 11th August 2018. I have a large box of paperwork and receipts. I've tried to include detailed photos, but let me know if there's anything you want included that isn't there. The car is based in Norwich and is yours for £9,000 ono. I work from home most of the time so i'm happy to do daytime, evening or weekend viewings. For any questions, please give me a call or text on 07990 590581. Please don't call after 9pm. Specification is as follows. Please ask if you have any questions or I’ve missed anything. Body/Chassis: Genuine Westfield SEiW chassis in black powdercoat. Genuine Westfield SEiW body panels in yellow. Carbon effect arch protectors and detail on cycle wings. “Triangle” roll over bar (standard square roll over bar to come with car). Lockable boot box. Lockable V8 bonnet with black mesh cutouts at rear of engine bay. Engine/Transmission: 2005 Ford Zetec 2L – Mileage of engine is approx. 60k. Weber Carbs recently serviced and set up (2017). Raceline Water Rail. Uprated engine bolts. New lightweight battery installed (2017), continually connected to trickle charger to maintain optimum charge. New water pump (2017). New cambelt (2017). New radiator (2017). Type 9 gearbox. Engine immobiliser. Repackable exhaust – repacked within last 1000 miles. Black exhaust cover. I have receipts for more uprated engine parts but I can’t verify whether they were installed as I’ve never broken down the engine. Interior: Comfort Westfield seats, mounted on rails for adjustable position. I’m 6ft 4” and quite wide; the car is still comfortable to drive. Carpets throughout. Floor mounted adjustable pedal box. Heater. VDO Gauges – Speed, Revs, Fuel, Engine Temp, Oil Pressure. Standard switchgear for lights, wipers, water spray, heater, horn, indicators. SPARCO suede steering wheel attached to gold 6-bolt pop-off mount on an Allegro steering column. Engine immobiliser. SABELT 4-point harnesses. Westfield full size side doors. Westfield wet weather hood frame (no hood included, I’ve never used it in wet weather). Suspension/Wheels: GAS adjustable suspension. M16 brake callipers (new calliper installed last year). Brake discs front and rear. 4 x Team Dynamics 15” wheels in black. R888 tyres – 205/50 R15 all round. Spare rear-mounted wheel with Westfield cover (not a matching Team Dynamics wheel). Extension number plate for rear-mounted spare wheel. Bad bits: I like to be up front about things so there's no surprises. As with any car, especially this type, there's always something that can improved upon, but this Westfield is in genuinely good shape. Here's a list of the things I've noticed that I'd want mentioned if I was buying: Both front wheel bearings have a little play, but nothing major. These will need doing at some point. MOT advisories. The tyres are down to the minimum tread so will need to be replaced soon. MOT Advisories. I haven't done it as you might want different tyres. There is a crack in the rear bodywork where the number plate extension bar passes through. It's not huge, nor structural. I've included pictures. There is a small hole in the driver's seat bolster. It's a few mm square so nothing to particularly worry about. I've included pictures. Air filter for Webers is scuffed where the bonnet goes on and off. Some of the engine pipework could do with replacing/upgrading but everything works fine and I haven't had any issues.
  2. Tools required for build ?

    I know this has been covered in various build threads but I did a search and couldn’t find a topic that covers all the tools required for a full build ? i have a fairly comprehensive tool kit including sockets, spanner’s, pliers, hammers etc. What I would like to know is what everyone recommends ? Links to the tools you recommend would be great if this is allowed.

  4. Can I build a bec westie

    Hi guys first post on here. Been wanting to build a 7 for a while now and been on researching like mad on what’s the best spec kit and easiest to build and I’m thinking it’s probably a westie. I did purchase an mk Indy blade about 10 years ago and to be honest never got as much use out it as I’d like to. Been racing karts for last few years and really fancy doing a build, want the satisfaction of having built it myself. im not a mechanic but as I’ve said I’ve raced karts and can work on them no problem but a karts got nothing on it compared to a car. I’ve done the odd oil change here and there, changed brake pads, general car maintenance etc. fancy going down the bec route as just love the sound, sequential shift and screaming engine. Would like to do a busa. Would mainly be for odd Sunday blasts and few track days. is a busa westie easy enough to build for a non mechanic and is the manual good enough? What trouble am I likely to run into with the build? And any other comments appreciated. Thinking of going to the kit car show to talk to a few owners and see the Westfield stand. lastly what sort of costs am I looking at for the build? im in Glasgow btw. cheers
  5. I am looking to buy my 1st Westfield imminently...I have looked at 3 so far. When cars are posted up for sale on here with no phone number or email address, is there a way to contact the seller, if you are not a fully paid up member yet? It doesn't seem possible to send a direct mail through the site or reply to the topic...? There is a car for sale on the site that I would be interested in. Cheers Bex
  6. Westfield SEi restoration - Part 3 Good to see it tipped by HPI & Pistonheads Making progress now I'm getting up close and personal with the car. Great to see HPI and Pistonheads tipped the Westi as a buy, good news for owners and values;o) Latest episode below for anyone interested https://youtu.be/AO0-gV-C3Z8
  7. Xtr2 history

    Hi all So some of you may be aware in January this year I bought the xtr2 from malgene, this is Westfield’s ex demonstrator that appeared on topgear. When I collected it from the factory I was given boxes and boxes of parts but the only paperwork I received was the receipt for the work the factory carried out and the V5, As I’m rebuilding I’m trying give the car some history and didn’t know if it has previously been owned by a member on here, ive obviously seen the episodes of topgear and men and motors but if anyone has any pictures / info on it it would definitely help
  8. Crossflow Exhaust Manifold (Sold)

    Hi, I have a genuine Westfield crossflow stainless steel exhaust manifold. Unfortunately I couldn't use it, or modify it to fit the pre-lit chassis. In good condition, but has been slightly modified by a previous owner, as shown in the photos. How does £25.00 + postage sound. Happy for it to be collected from Buckingham. cheers Gary
  9. XTR2 diff alignment

    Hi Guys So the XTR is now Taxed & MOT'd, I have a couple of little teething problems but noting too bad, the only one I'm unsure of is the alignment of the rear diff/sprocket. It all looks to be inline but as you turn the wheels the chain gets tighter and then loosens off, like its egg shaped, is this something anyone's come across. I've just read that maybe I should of loosened the grub screws in the bearing carrier, although I'm not sure how this would make a difference. Any help would be appreciated Chris
  10. Looking for a transplant

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum so please be gentle. I'll cut a very long story short to spare you all... I bought a part built GBS Zero last year which was supposedly almost finished. As you'd expect (and as I'd now expect) the car was not nearly complete and the work that had been done was poor at best. Although I've almost finished the car now, I'm not happy with what I've ended up with and am looking start again. I'd like to invest in a new chassis and body as the old one has been treated pretty badly during by the previous builder (their favourite tools appear to have been the angle grinder and a hammer). The car has the following parts (all new expect the donor parts) which I want to try and use for the new project: 2.0 Blaktop Zetec (new crate engine) running a GBS plenum Raceline sump, alternator kit, GBS cooling rail kit... Emerald K5 ECU Sierra Running Gear (could do with a refurb) Leather Seats and 4 point harnesses Wheels/tyres (ford stud pattern) GAZ adjustable shocks GBS factory wiring loom Lights etc GBS fuel tank Smiths flight gauges IVA bonnet catches (unused) Radiator So I was initially just going to buy a new Zero chassis in GT trim as I find this one a little tight due to the cross brace that sits above the right knee. Then I fell in love with the MK Indy. Seems to be a better design, well thought out and more roomy. I also like the full GRP bodywork for ease of assembly. The reason I haven't looked at Westfield was because I assumed they would be too expensive (as Caterham). However, at present, the starter kits for the Zero and MK (for what I need) will cost me around £3.5k or £5.5k respectively...then I saw the Westfield starter kits can be had for around the same money. Now, I'm no fool. I know it will still cost a fair bit more even with the parts I have but I must have nearly everything now surely - especially seeing as the zero is nearly finished. My question is, can I use most of the gear I have on a Westfield Multi-donor vehicle starter kit and why should I do so over buying another Zero or an Indy?
  11. Xtr2 spare bracket

    Hi so I bought the xtr2 in the picture below just after Christmas, it came needing a lot of putting back together and it's about ready to go for its MOT I have 1 bracket left and can't figure out where it goes, it looks like it could be a bodywork support from somewhere. Does anyone have a idea ?
  12. Fuel Sender Unit Seal

    Hi everyone, I have a pre-litigation Westfield and have been struggling with a strong fuel smell when in the garage for a couple of months now. I have now identified the leak around a screw on the fuel sender unit which I have removed and found the seal needs replacing, I believe the sender unit is a MTU115 moprod from a MK2 escort. Westfield, Demontweeks and Rally Design have all been unable to help me find a suitable seal as a replacement so I am hoping you will be able to point me in the right direction. Could any of you tell me whether a newer sender unit from westfield would be suitable or where I could obtain a replacement seal from? Cheers Andy

  14. Westfield SEIW 2 LITRE ZETEC After a lot of soul-searching, i’ve decided to let the Westfield go. I’ve owned the car for the last ten years, but recently hasn’t been getting the use it should and I’d rather it went to a good home and got the use it deserves. It’s a well presented and specified car that would make an ideal first Westfield, or a solid upgrade for an existing owner. The car incorporates a blend of practical and safety upgrades, making the car equally at home on road or track. Car is advertised here, before it goes on the usual sites. The car: Registered on a ‘Q’ plate in August 2000 WSCC members car Folder of receipts etc. Build manual and photo CD 19,448 miles 12 Months MOT with no advisories Engine/Transmission: Ford 2 litre Zetec (16v) Twin Weber 45 DCOE carburettors (5 progression hole modified for smooth power delivery) Weber Alpha ECU Scholar baffled sump and modified oil pick-up pipe Westfield stainless repackable sports exhaust Engine tuned and mapped by Troy at Northampton Motorsport Ford MT75 gearbox Westfield quick shift Ford Sierra LSD Disc brakes front and rear with plenty of life in them Fully adjustable poly bushed AVO shock absorbers and coil springs MOCAL oil catch tank Body: Westfield SEIW bodywork in Chrome Yellow with detachable rear arches and ducted nosecone Westfield Chrome Yellow aeroscreen Clear lenses front and side Westfield carbon lookalike rear arch protectors Westfield sports seats Sabelt 3” 4 point harnesses RAC type rollbar (with detachable stays) Westfield lockable bootbox Heater 12v socket Momo Team 280mm steering wheel Thatcham grade 2 immobiliser High level brake light 15x7 Raceline Alloy wheels in graphite grey with locking nuts and fitted with Toyo R888 medium compound tyres with plenty of tread Waxolyed chassis Original windscreen with side doors, hood and wiper motor will be included should the new owner wish to revert back to the original windscreen setup.

  15. I've decided to sell my Westfield which I have owned from the time I built it, registered in 2001. This is an ideal road car in immaculate condition. I am planning to retain the number plate. The engine was completely rebuilt using an older and mature block. This enables the car to run without Cats and MOTs without a problem. This car will be sold with a new MOT as it currently expires at end of May 2017. The engine was built and tuned by a V8 specialist (Progress Engineering in Maidstone). R380 gearbox (new when fitted) Heavy duty clutch LSD Diff (Westfield supplied) Moroso electric water pump Immobiliser Rev limiter Toyo R1R tyres 205/15 (almost new) New Protech shock absorbers fitted Wrapped stainless steel headers and stainless steel underslung exhaust (Westfield supplied) Tonneau cover with zip for half cover if wanted Removable side screens Full weather gear - Hood and frame Spare wheel and carrier included but not currently fitted. Various spare parts, Manual and many receipts and info folder If not sold this car will be at Stoneleigh on Monday 1st May Car is based in Letchworth, Herts.

  16. Carbon Fibre Tub / Chassis

    Hi everyone, I'm a university student, currently working on a project with regards to the use of carbon fibre in kit cars such as the Westfields. Essentially, we are working with Axon Automotive on a passenger tub, where the passenger and the driver are seated, made entirely of carbon fibre (including the beams, the flooring and the side panels); whereas, the front and back of the chassis remain with the original steel frame chassis. So the method used to join the steel frame to the carbon fibre tub is through nuts and bolts. I'm currently conducting a survey just to determine your perception on the use of carbon fibre in kit cars, especially for the tub. More information about the product itself is available in the survey link below and I'd really appreciate if you could take a couple of minutes to answer the survey. All responses will be stored anonymously and I really hope that I can get a great number of responses from you all. Click here for the Survey. Cheers, Will

  19. Hey guys, was wondering if anyone happened to know a bit more about (I think) Axon Automotive and Westfield's prototype on replacing the standard passenger tub (originally made using steel or aluminum bars) to carbon fibre. I tried to look through their website, I thought the kit car was supposed to be in production by the end of last year but I don't see much information about it. On the other hand, I did manage to find a picture, below, of (what I think is) the prototype. Any thoughts on the use of carbon fibre for the tub? I assume it will provide substantial weight saving, and possibly extra stiffness on the tub but I'm not sure about the connections between the front and rear steel frames with the tub. What do you think?
  20. After 3 years of fun, I am looking at moving into Tin Top racing so my Westfield is going up for sale. It's a fantastic car, and is the perfect road / occasional track day car in its current spec and could be taken either way to make an out and out track car, or an even better road car. So the car: Westfield SEiW registered on 1998 on an R plate, wide body with V8 ducted nose cone and vented bonnet. 2.0 Vauxhall XE Red Top with oil pump, hydraulic tappets, plugs and a Varley red top 30 battery fitted within the last few years. Fully serviced with oils and fluids over the winter, also garaged over winter. It runs on MBE Engine Management with tapered throttle bodies giving 197bhp on a rolling road. Gearbox is a Type 9 close ratio straight cut competition box with short quick shift. Paddle type clutch Sierra Limited Slip Differential Front brakes are Wilwood 4 pots with solid discs, rears are Sierra disks. Braided brake hoses Gaz adjustable suspension 2.4 Steering Rack 13 inch Compomotive alloys Carbon fibre effect rear arch protectors and rear lights Carbon fibre exhaust Playskool Half Cage Willians Harnesses Momo steering wheel Recently fitted with an upgraded Coolex radiator with new fan Cooling override switch (never had any overheating problems but the switch was already fitted and I upgraded the radiator for more track work) AP Racing Brake Master Cylinder (took me almost a year to get hold of one of these to fit! Rocking horse s*** springs to mind!) Heater Full leather dash and carpets Immobiliser Hamilton car cover (with slight tear) Side doors and soft bits for sevens tonneau cover The car has been fully set up with geo and corner weights by Northampton Motorsports MOT until September 17 As you can see, it is a great spec car. I have spent thousands on this car and it is in fantastic condition, I have stacks of history and receipts too. I have loved owning it and hope the next person does too. I just want to try my hand a bit more seriously on track! I am in no rush to sell so please no silly offers. Car is based in Leamington Spa. Contact 07429155373. Price: £11,500
  21. Megabusa geometry

    Hi, picked up my Megabusa today and want to start making sure it is set up properly as it has only done 160miles from build and geometry never set up. Has any one got some basic camber,toe, ride heights etc for fast road occasionally track use for a westy Megabusa, just to get me started?
  22. Hello again

    Hi guys I've just rejoined the club as I've just bought my second westfield. i was a member a few years ago when I had my megabird, although I didnt really get involved on here to much. Think I spent most of my time fitting new engines in it and not doing westfield stuff. Ive just bought malgene's xtr2 so fingers crossed it'll be a good track car.
  23. Hello, I am having trouble finding out what ABI insurance group my car is in. Does anyone have information on this? I have tried speaking to my current insurer and Westfield but neither seem to know. Any help with grouping details or where I could find this information would be very much appreciated. My car is as 2001 Westfield Seight - VRM S30 OGT Thanks in advance! Josh
