    Re: Looking for contact in Italy for engine rebuild

    Hello Martin, where do you live in Austria? I am every two weeks in Graz. I live in Germany and am completely overhauling my 250 Gte at the moment. I am 99% through with the car and at the moment am completely overhauling the engine. There are several shops who are capable of doing the job in German...

    Brake bleeding sequence & tricks 250 Gte

    Dear Al, I will fill the brake system on my 250 Gte S3 (see photos) soon and have some questions: 1. What fluid do you recommend? Silicon or normal Dot4? 2. What is the best sequence for bleeding 250 brakes? 3. Are there any tricks which make it easier? I do have a hand pressurised bleeder which con...

    Borrani RW 3801 or 3690

    Hi All, I had my Borranis tested and 2-3 of them have a big radial untrueness, meaning they run out of true and my local wire wheel specialist says at least 2 can not be overhauled. Therefore I am looking for a good set of RW3801 or RW3690 or two single wheels RW3801 to complete my set. Preferable i...

    Re: Bonnet Question

    Hi John,

    I would guess that either springs have lost their tension
    or someone dismounted them and did not put enough preload on them when mounting them on their individual frames?! Can you put more preload on them if you remove the screw or are they already “tightly” rolled up?

    Re: Finish of External water pipes on a 250 GTE?

    Build one myself. Not the prettiest but tested to 3 bar. Will have it nickel plated and then paint it wrinkle.

    Thanks for all advice on how to get one.

    Re: Bonnet Question

    Hi John,

    that is my understanding. Mine were missing on my S3 Gte
    and I bought a used pair. They are very hard to move by hand, so have a lot of spring tension. Have you tried them
    of the car?
