Re: My first Jap

Very nice, looked at the ignis before I got the mk3 panda, the 3 door ones are rare around here and only ever seen 1 sport.

They kinda look like an overinflated panda mk1.

There is an early CRX (think it's mk1 will snap it next time) makes sporadic appearances in my village outside the butchers! I do like a car with lots of plaggy trim stuck on it....

Re: My first Jap

They are rare is why you don't see them, there is less than 2k Ignis Sports in the country including the Sorn'd ones. There has infact never been 2k Ignis Sports in the country either.

The lad i bought it off bought a mk1 CRX as his new car, gorgeous thing. They are very rare though, i suspect your seeing a mk2 CRX. The mk1 is made of fibreglass and is really uber rare even in japan. They weigh only a tiny bit more than a cinquecento amazingly.

Re: My first Jap

Well went to take a valve cap off this morning - i got new ones i wanted to fit - they are on so so tight though, i managed to get one off but then the second one was so tight that i snapped the actual valve itself in half and then obviously all the air came out

So thought to myself, nevermind just swap the wheel for one of the spares (stock wheels), swapped it over and then went to do other side so same wheel size and tyre across the axle and that tyre has some mega gouges on the inside edge, probably pothole damage from look of them. So that need replacing - now the car has Toyo T1R on one side and Yokohama S-Drives on the other which is one of my pet hates not having same tyres all round; this damaged one is one of the Yoko tyres which fortunately are the ones with less tread left so now i think i am just gonna take all the wheels down a tyre shop and have new valves put in the ones with Toyo's (not got the valve caps off them but i suspect that they will just snap as well as they are just as tight) and 2 new Toyo's and valves on the other 2. Will have to look at my finances first though.

So for now, it is back on stock wheels with budget tyres and its just horrible - its miles better over bumps but its like driving on ice compared to the Cades wheels with decent tyres.

Re: My first Jap

well for finances reasons he (he's a he now, more on that in a sec) i have not sorted the tyres and valves on the Cades alloys yet. I have got some new valves to go in, short stubby ones as i prefer them but tyre shops always fit the normal longer ones.

But i have finally replaced the silly square plate on the rear that is too tall for the number plate recess with a 13x7 one. It also has his new name on it. Mrs Blu decided on a name for her first car so he is now called 'Oberyn - The Red Viper'

Here is the old plate, clearly too tall for recess


And the new one

Blue, with the optional evo style foglights and anthracite lenso alloys

Does yours have a load cover for the boot?

Re: My first Jap

there is a clip in shelf that covers the spare wheel and it has a clip on thin material thing in place of a proper parcel shelf.
