Re: Boot rubbers Sp 250

The same thing happened to me when I replaced the boot rubbers. When you close the boot does it line up correctly with the car, if it does, then you need to adjust the catch imo. Wrong (online-video-cutter.com).mp4 I ended up setting up a camera to record what the catch was doing...It worked very we...

SP250 Starter motor fixings

Good morning all, can you help with a question i have regarding starter motor fixings?

I spotted this picture with what looks like a gasket or spacer and bracket?

Does the SP250 need this, as I just have the actual starter motor bolted directly onto the car with the two bolts.

Many thanks.

When I change my oil I drain all the old oil out then when it stops draining I add a couple of more pints and let that drain through.
Great tip!

Re: Tyre size options on 250

I have opted down the route of a premium 185/65/15 88T tyre with new inner tubes/bands on my wires. There's quite a gap between the wheel arches as you would imagine. I will replacing them next year, probably with the Vredestein 185/80 R15 91H like a lot of SP owners. When you dont have a lot of cas...
