Hit a damn mink yesterday, caused a bit of damage alright, corner piece ended up in someones front garden 50m down the road.. good thing i found it, front bumper needs fiberglass and paint anyway.

Re: My mr2 from when i first laid my eyes on her... 3 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 71
Got myself a python 533 alarm from ebay,
One way remote and a 2 way pager comes with it,
remote start, motion sensor (was an extra $30), built in turbo timer,
different alarm and starting options,
it has a function to automatically start the engine if the temperature inside the car falls below 0 degrees in winter time, and it tells you the temperature inside the car on the 2 way pager, does lots more things and can be programmed to do other stuff aswel.
There is a huge list of instructions on how the remote works with loads of functions which require you to press 2 or 3 buttons at the same time, bit of learning to do lol
Got everything for $166 including postage.
Ill get around to installing it next week and post updates on it

nice one spla wouldn't dream of wiring my own alarm, hate wiring and would probably end up locking myself out/in the car

Let us know how you get on

Ah its pretty straight forward, you get really good wiring instructions with a color description of each wire, what it does and where its located on the alarm box,
All you need to do then is get a volt meter, go to your car ignition barrel and find out which wire has what voltage and when it gets the voltage, im still gonna go to a good electrician down the road so he can give me a hand and fix my central locking problem while hes at it because its driving me mad, it only works when it wants to.

Done the NCT there yesterday, the major fails were emissions, noise and a leaky caliper which just needed the 2 copper washers replaced at the fluid feed line which wasnt even that hard of a fix, because of the caliper they put a sticker on the windscreen saying dangerous for public roads, assholes, fixed it straight away anyway.
They failed me on exhaust noise because it was 5db over the limit, WTF?!
And emissions was .06 over the limit. Maximum allowed: 1.03, mine: 1.09.
I rang Martin in Enfield to ask about emissions and straight away he told me to fix my leaky exhaust, and he was right i had leaks in the exhaust lol

Those new seats are awful looking IMO.

To put them in your car in place of super rare factory option Recaros is madness!

Cs1980 ... You are not exactly making friends on this site IMO ... If you have nothing nice to say then don't say it ..

People choose to modify their car to their personal taste .. Spla likes those seats and its his car ... If the seats are what Spla wants then they are perfect .. instead of slagging off other peoples taste why not put up a thread on your car and let us all take cheap shots at it ...

So far you have Pissed off Marty J ... Spla300 and I wouldn't consider myself your biggest fan .. not bad going in a short space of time ... You would turn people off putting up pics of their pride and joy for fear you would not approve ... After all what you don't know about MR2's is not worth knowing I think you said in another thread or something along those lines ...

I really don't want to get into this any further ... this statement will not require a response from you so lets leave it there ...

Spla300 ... That scoop looks the job on it .. Lets hope it wont cause any issues with the airflow in the engine bay ...

I've been on this site/forum since the very beginning, so if i've only annoyed 3 people in all those years then i think i've done very well!

How about you post pictures up of your car and we have a look at your fancy ass modifications IMO!
I put them seats in because I like them more than the recaros and I don't care what you think, in order for you to insult me I must first value your opinion.
Yeah Japohara some serious wind turbulence issues because of that scoop :-P

I'm afraid to say anything, in case someone takes my last karma point away. Thats 4 gone in the space of a few weeks.

What did you do with the Recaros, still have them?

Thank you so much. Very mature of you.

Perhaps one of the reasons no-one stays on this forum, they come on and get grief so bugger off and never to be seen again.
