    Lying up longer than expected, advice needed...

    After 6 months you’re probably ok. Mine sits over winter for a similar duration although I do try to start her up, move her out of the garage and back in again if I get a chance. Might get a bit of starter motor “sneeze” that these cars are renowned for but otherwise should be good. Check...

    That sounds VERY cheap. I’d expect it to be a mess tbh. a fresh import will set you back between £12-14k now I think, more for a decent one. I see several for sale adverts for clean cars anywhere £10k upwards depending on spec, mileage, PFL/FL etc. will be up to you based on condition but for...

    Do I need a suspension rebuild?

    Ok, so a number of those bits are consumables, eg Tyres. Sounds like you need at least 2 replacements along with your spare. Those, if they are bad as suggested, just need to be replaced. You can easily inspect them yourself for low tread, cuts or damage. You absolutely can argue those with...

    Help finding what this is

    Block it off with a rubber cap. As above, it’s the idle air assist valve connection which has clearly been removed from your car anyway.

    MOT Advisories

    Well at least you’ve eliminated that then. Sounds like you wanna have a crawl around underneath and have a good check. Or see if you can speak to the MOT garage and book in for the investigation.

    Could it be rocker cover gasket? Common place to get a leak.

    Indoor car cover advise please…

    Nope. Not heated - just a double garage attached to the side of the house. Gets cold but not damp

    Indoor car cover advise please…

    I have a fantastic indoor cover. Car is in the garage all of the time but I have a small workshop in there too so I’m making a mess a lot of the time. It’s never caused me condensation, moisture or other issues at all :)

    Behind the Dash Fuel Gauge Wire

    Not sure if it helps or not tbh, but this thread seems to list an Integra wiring for some blue connectors… It suggests yellow/white for fuel gauge on pin 14 of the 16 pin connector. I have no...

    Aftermarket Steering wheel - SRS Light delete…
