Retro rides is also an ace forum!

As for the power and torque, im looking for 100bhp+ in the first guise, then upto 180bhp once its got the turbo on there.

Ive got to get me a haynes for the BX, i think i need the visa / bx diesel one?

Im in west sussex at the moment, looking for a job!

Thought you might be a regular on there with a car like that! Ido visit from time-to-time, seen some fantastic cars on there.
Your Imp must be a right go-er, I`ll have to get one one day, always liked them.

Just to clarify please, did you donate the spooky radio to the priest or send it to him for exorcism :? :lol:

Its possible that the old radio only had power to the radio section and no conection to the memory - which therefor didn't do its job.

I removed an original type Philips radio/tape player from my BX and replaced it with a MP3 disc player which was in there for about 18 months. The thing in our ZX then died (started off loosing memory then expired altogether) and I put the MP3 player in it and the old Philips back in the BX. Imagine my surprise when I found it still retained the presets! after 18 months without power!

No it was retuning its self while in use, and changing the volume!

Maybe you really should get it exorcised!!! :shock:

Either that or throw it far, far away, it could come back to haunt you!!! :twisted:
