  1. If your transporting a car that got no tax, no mot or insurance then all 4 wheels needs to be off the ground for transport
  2. Road tax for this car is £245, which sucks, car is still available will take an offer on it, its working and ready to drive away once taxed and insured
  3. why couldnt they just use a twin filament bulb like the rest of the planet
  4. bit more information ont he problem may be more usefull, you could end up bypassing the immobilser and simply find out that one of the sub components connected to it is failing, like the 109 relay or the fuel cutoff solenoid, with Immo3 the instrument cluster may connected to it so as we found out with my sons polo a few dry joints was causing immobiliser problems for him finding the problem and fixing it at source would be the way I would go but thats just me, bypassing would be a last resort just a note if the immobiliser is kicking in the engine will start and cut after a few seconds, if the engine does not run at all then the problem may not be the immobilser
  5. you got 2 codes but they may end up being the same thing as they both seem to relate to the throttle assembly http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/17950/P1542/005442 http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/17953/P1545/005445
  6. it proves that the lead and software are working, unless the early versions where unlocked it looks like you in the same boat as me, I'm selling my lupo so I'm even less inclined to spend the £90 to register the software to fix somthing I've already lived with for 2 years,lol
  7. they deform when you start tighening the bolts some need a tool to set but you can use this method
  8. you may need these
  9. When i did mine I used a Hawk kit, when you tell them the car you have they provide a wiring diagram for the car, that made thing s bit easier as you can have negative locking, positive locking or vacuum locking so helps to know which one to use
  10. is there a part number on the tube
  11. sorry not list, i even check sdi for comparison also not listed, when i did my sons car they where tight to undo so they went back in tight
  12. what radio have you got, amps are generally driven by RCA input (red and white plug), if your radio has these on the back then thats good news, if not you will need somthing like a PC1-601 Line Output Connector from halford that converts speak output form your radio to the required rca standards you need to think about where you are placing your amp. it will need a direct feed from your battery, with the fuse as close to the battery as possible, getting this feed to the amp is about 80% of the job
