Re: Best cars................ EVER.

Yeah, but it looks like a cross between a Mustang and a Jag FFS, what's not to like?

Re: Need door handle

The alloy is brittle - I've had a couple of V300 door handles snap in my hands. I wouldn't bother trying to swap in a new handle only, just replace the whole mechanism. It's a fiddly enough job as it is without making it harder for yourself.

Re: What do these wires do? (GLT content)

Sounds quite likely that the ignition would have a dedicated earth rather than just a grounded to the body/chassis - you my friend need a wiring diagram:

Re: What do these wires do? (GLT content)

I do know that if you pull that relay the engine stops dead - so it's involved in engine management. Is it linked to the ignition?
