Greetings.

If it is a B3s bi turbo I will be gutted. Want one so badly but have to wait a little longer. Saw one at Gaydon parked next to my B10 on display and no other car interest me. Please Mr lottery give me a break or I might end up with a sabb :lol:

Greetings. Yea seen a lot of articles about replacing the whole thrust bar but my problem only happens with braking. If this works then i may end up doing all the the other suspension rubbers over a period of time. My disc apparently were tested to see if they were warped and they are. I am going to...
