    Well impressive! Which engine management system are you using?

    Found excellent suppliers and fitters of K11 hoods.

    Has anybody else tried the Irish Danny supplied hoods? My Carhoods northern cover is all but knackered already, much of the internal gluing has come away now too.

    It probably fits quite well though.

    I take it you mean when you are ordering a new hood? When I was looking for one I investigated importing one from Japan. I found they were (at that time) available but after including shipping and import duty it cost as much as importing another car!

    After a couple of years how do you feel about your hood now? My experience with Vic and Carhoods Northern didn't end well. They said they would bond my old heated glass window into the new hood so I agreed to the deal, they collected my car then after a few days told me the new hood would have...

    Unique to FHK11 Cabriolet Convertible

    Wow, a soft top Viewt, I've long wanted one and I've scoured the jap auctions for a manual one without success in the past. I'd be a bit surprised if the drive shafts are different but then the headlights and many other bits are, including the engine management system so it's possible...but why...

    Hi Andy, these cars were all manufactured in 97/8 as far as I know - like the Figaro. There seems to be some small trim differences, for example my first one had a small storage tray between the seats but my current one has a centre arm rest with some clever rear cup holders though I don't know...

    As something of a veteran top down Micra/March driver, I can assure you it does grow on you, people smile where ever you go. Once when I was driving through a very rough Sheffield estate in the evening, I stopped at some lights and a black BMW full of scarred tattooed lads who looked...

    Unique to FHK11 Cabriolet Convertible

    I've had 2 of these cars, the first had such a good heater you could drive with the top down in winter. My current car had a rubbish heater so I followed the pollen filter fix shown elsewhere. Things on this car are slightly different in that there was no plastic cover to cut out (but there was...

    Here is a pic from the docks (if I've don it right), I'll post some current ones when it stops raining.

    I bought one just like that (but with knackered hood cover and a lot more rust) from Kent about 3.5 years ago. I enjoyed it so much that when it died at the end of last summer I imported another one from Japan- red this time with no rust. The last one had an amazing heater but this one is very...
