Re: CD player options.

Just an FYI - later car cd unit speaker systems are wired up differently, for instance late cars have no speakers under the rear seat but extra tweeters here and there ..so what wire does what can be an issue.

Re: J-Gate

I never use the right hand side other than to park and reverse. I shift just like a manual, going into fast bends, passing, slowing down, everything. If you don't use it you are missing out on a wonderful transmission.

Re: New fuel filler rubber boot?

Purchasing the whole assembly (BEC7531) is the only way to get the rubber boot, it isn't sold as a separate part. Unfortunately BEC7531 is NLA and hasn't been for quite a few years. If my rubber boot ever fails and I can't get a good one from a wreck, I'll attempt to make another using a mould and l...

Re: Correct fuel? 98 super?

I use Esso simply because they offer free $15 touchless car washes with bonus points from fill-ups. No brushes, no swirl marks!

...and yes indeed, foam only lasts so long before it returns to powder - it disintegrates all over the car eventually. Climate control flap seals are notorious as well.

Re: The Dreaded Droop

Mine is the same, sunroof and sagging at the back. I had thought of getting some fabric glue and a syringe and being extremely careful, try that way, or make incisions at each side and try spray fabric glue. The chesterfield couch look with the pins would just annoy me. To me, the pins would be far...

Re: Correct fuel? 98 super?

I have been running loads of miles on 92 without issues. Remember that the Andy Bracket exists because the OEM ignition setting is very conservative. That's what I run too, Esso Regular (equivalent is 87 in Canada) with zero issues also ..probably the last 25,000 KM on it and a tank-and-a-half ever...

Re: Correct fuel? 98 super?

What rubber seals? I think the injector o-rings are something other than rubber ..neoprene? Where else are there "rubber" seals in the fuel system? Btw, I used to run premium ...then I went with regular adding a bottle of octane booster (basically kerosene/paraffin) then, for the last few ...

Re: CD player options.

I believe it is integrated, but so what. If you are determined to fit a trunk mounted CD player all you're going to need are the DIN plugs and some wire, right?

Re: CD player options.

Don't think the early cars (non-CD equipped) had the big wiring control harness to the boot fitted, so that's another thing to keep in mind if you swap head units ..
