  1. If you are looking at cheap steel wheels, look at Opel wheels.
  2. My understanding is that the Vega bolt pattern is 4x4"(101.6mm), not 4x100mm. And they have a huge offset. The Cosworth Vega wheels are 13x6et45.
  3. Nope, like the P45t old antique bulb that fits my antique concave Cibie lights.
  4. H4 LED conversions are everywhere. I need the R2 LED bulbs!
  5. I'll make some for myself. Some top mounts, custom struts and other bits. But I doubt they will get added to the catalog.
  6. That is key. Many of the standard fuel hoses, more of the metric hoses and most of the metric fabric covered hose, does not stand up to ethanol. It's been an issue for decades. Harry Pellow made light of it in his books. Bellmetric has metric, ethanol resistant hose. It's got a smooth casing, so yes, it's not original looking. But it will stand up longer to the fuels we use.
  7. I'd also like to see one with late bumpers. I looked through the different threads and the Kooglewerks Instagram and didn't see any big bumper cars that retained their bumpers -AND- had a spoiler.
  8. Yep, the rest of the car is "driver quality", so no need for a NOS piece to ruin the continuity. Sending a PM.
  9. I need once piece of knee moulding for the right rear quarter behind the door. Shipped to Dallas, Texas

    I'm the third owner. The previous owner drove the car sparingly between 1981 to 2002, until she could no longer drive. The car was parked up in a garage until 2020.
  11. Looks like the street version has voids in the rubber bushing to provide the most isolation. The version made by motorsport do not have the voids, and the bushing is solid for a little more stability and less isolation.
  12. For a street car that isn't tracked, I'd agree. But for a true competition car, MCS fills the 15% to 85% range. There are some bargain basement parts that people track, but have serious compromises. And there are some higher tech dampers that provide more performance at an enormous price over the MCS. The flip side to that is that we use some other brands for pure street, or dual-duty street/track cars. But by the time you build them out with the dampers, springs, ride height adjusters, camber plates, shortened end links, etc... those other high quality setups built for a different purpose approach or surpass the price of an entry level MCS kit. The price doesn't reflect the purpose (race or street), it reflects the quality. But yes, again, they are an expensive setup for what might be an inexpensive street car. And the performance they deliver is not geared towards street use. I try to steer 100% street cars towards some of the Ohlins or Bilstein parts. Also, now that I know they've already done a 2002 set, I won't have to grovel when I start talking to them about doing a set for me. 😉
  13. I've done a lot of fitment work for MCS and put them on our own shop cars, as well as hundreds of customer cars. They don't make a 2002 fitment, but they will work with your provided strut housing to build a set like they do for the E28, E30 and early 911 models. As for longevity, they have been so much better than the AST dampers. I've had customers go five years of dual-duty (street and track) before rebuilding them. It makes me cringe to go that long, but people have been doing it without issue.
