Them very nice clocks (Chronos) at £30 are absolute rubbish IMO, I’m on my 3rd one now and they stop working after a few days, I thought it was the battery at first. They match ok, but no good for time keeping😬

Great to see, I too just press the order button with Allon White's for a new Plus 4. The 110 offer + Phil's easy sales chat had me hooked. I'm in the process of ticking boxes for extras but wasn't aware of the alloy radiator so thanks for the information. Any idea of the price at build?

All very confusing what extras are must have but these threads have been very enlightening - Thank you

Me too. Mine was intermittent. Following battery change, it never worked again. Since bought a Smiths for £60 and fitted into the dash and it’s bang on.

By the way, does anyone have a good photo of the performance seats and can say whether they sit on wooden spacers or direct to the floor. When we had a run out in a GDI recently ( non perf seats) it seemed that we sat quite high up.
Thank you.

Unless it's changed the performance seats bolt to the floor.

And the bolt tail which juts out and presses into the carpet isn't in the same place as the standard seats.

My ARP4 has the perforated 'performance' seats which originally just bolted to the floor, I very quickly made up some tapered spacers to both lift the seat at the rear but to give more slope from the front, which suited me perfectly. An easy job, but you may need some longer bolts, especially at the front depending on how high you want it.

BTW, the performance seats have a slightly 'fuller' headrest, but it still comes nowhere near the back of the head, in fact I have removed mine completely as it is virtually useless as a safety aid and just gets in the way of access to the well behind the seats.

Apparently the factory will not fit an Ali radiator in build so we will just have to wait till it breaks😀We are working on a better manifold though. I am not sure at this stage what the final price will be pre export

Had our Ali radiator fitted at the first service after the warranty expired. I could not face the thought of it breaking half way round a touring holiday.
