    Door Mirrors

    It looks like there was a normal mirror there in the past with the triangle bit taped up but I really don't know Just removed the passenger's side you can see the full horror underneath. A bit unnerving just how rough it looks in a close up photo!

    Door Mirrors

    Looking for a pair of door mirrors for a GTE, fake Englemanns rattling around on rusty self-tappers aren't doing it for me...
  3. There's something weird when I try that URL so ended up searching to see what you meant. It looks great but serious money! http://www.ppscltd.co.uk/used/opel/manta/18-gt/brigg/lincolnshire/18557914#top-image

    Recaro plastic tilt lever

    From a bit of internet searching I have come to the conclusion that the Recaros in the Manta were known generically as the Recaro LX https://recaroseatdealer.wordpress.com/tag/recaro-seat-model-lx/ It seems as if they are still made https://www.recaro-automotive.com/en/product-areas/aftermarket-seats/products/recaro-specialist.html#c164817 albeit with a slightly different style of tilt lever https://www.capitalseating.co.uk/backrest-tilt-release-kit even though the internal of the lever/knob will fit. Here's a US site with the style that is the same as the Manta so I'd take the chance that anything that looks the same from a BMW, 70's-90's will fit. http://www.2002parts.com/bmw/recaro-seat-parts/rec-relknob-late.html Fords with Recaro's from the late 80's also seem to have the same seats... Happy hunting!

    Dimitri I'm not 100% sure if its right but I think that if you paste 142942358908 on eBay UK you'll see new old stock

    I've found new old stock on eBay but wondered if anyone on here had a used one for less :-) Cheers
  7. Got another ecu and she lives again! The tweaks at the roadside meant that initially she was revving up to 2000 or so rpm & falling back every few seconds. I realised the stop on the end of the throttle was screwed out quite a way, eased that down, played with the air-bypass allen screw on the metering head and she's idling steady at around 900 rpm. Thanks again for all the comments and suggestions, I've learned a lot over the past couple of weeks :-) Now thinking I should learn about replacing the very tired looking vacuum servo & master cylinder but that'll have to be another thread.

  11. The link seems to be dead
  12. That's not great. Why bother advertising it at all?
