  1. Evening all - good news below https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/road-vehicles-improving-air-quality-and-safety Kit car emissions testing Q16: Do you agree with requiring kit cars submitted for IVA to meet the latest MOT standards, thereby removing the rule that kit cars are IVA tested to MOT standards according to engine age? Q16 Number of responses Yes 70 No 1343* No answer 86 * plus 840 additional respondents Emissions approval - kit cars (Basic IVA) (Q16) 3.12 In response to the strong opposition to our proposal to tighten the rules for kit car emissions, the Department will not implement this aspect of the proposal. 3.13 We have taken this decision after reflecting on the evidence and noting that kit cars are a small proportion of the fleet, cover a low annual mileage and are rarely used in town centres where air quality issues exist. 3.14 Therefore kit cars submitted for IVA will continue to be subject to an MOT-style emissions test, using the current criteria in the IVA manual around engine build/first use date.
  2. Good evening, i do agree with the safety aspect of putting a small child in a westfield. It doesn’t matter how careful you drive, we can’t predict what other drivers are doing on the road. Having said all that I did take my 4 year old out in it last year to some local car meets a few times and used this booster seat. https://www.amazon.co.uk/BubbleBum-Inflatable-Booster-Group-Black/dp/B0092MB0O2/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1523478616&sr=8-1&keywords=Blow+up+child+car+seat
  3. I would still like to know my options..........and to learn more
  4. Evening all, I am preparing for the worst regarding the new possible MOT legislation coming into force this year. I have a Westfield Seight with a Rover V8 that has been modified by V8 Developments back in 2001. The ECU is a 14CUX ECU EFi System remapped. At present there is no Lambda sensor and the exhaust system has no catalytic convertor at the moment. Would effort would be required? Is it as simple as fitting a catalytic convertor or is there more to it?

    Oil change

    Thanks all for your advise. just so I am clear when I change the oil filter, I should prime this with new oil before fitting? this will help not to drain the oil pump, correct.

    Oil change

    Evening all, My Westfield Seight has been off the road for the last 6 months and it did about 1500 miles last year. My question is do I drop the oil and change the filter without turning it over, or do I turn it over and get the oil up to temperature before dropping the oil and changing filter? The battery has been hooked up to an optimate that has kept the battery is good condition. What are you thoughts?
  8. Cheers Guy's - I do like the look of the quality fitting from soft bits
  9. Good Morning, Can anyone recommend a supplier for a boot cover? I found these but there is zero communication from them, so not sure if they are still in business http://www.softbitsshop.co.uk/boot-cover-seiw-rac-670-p.asp
  10. Purchased Halfords R03 wiper refills that did the job http://www.halfords.com/motoring/bulbs-blades-batteries/wiper-blades/halfords-r03-wiper-blade-refill-16
  11. Thanks for the replies and I think the universal method is the way to go. Can anyone tell me what type of wiper blades I have and how to remove them?
  12. I need some new wiper blades and looked on the forum for somewhere to purchase them and a lot of the links are dead and don't work. So my question is where is the best place to get wiper blades or refills. I have 8" wiper blades and I believe the fitting is spoon fitting but cant seem to get them off. Any advise/help appreciated
