Yes - looks great! Steel blue metallic I believe. Had a Genesis Coupe in that colour. Decent spec as standard and looks to be in good condition. Enjoy!

      Hi all,
       
      After a bit of help!
       
      Looking to replace a number of parts on my 1990 Mk2 Breadvan. It's a 1.3l CL model.
       
      I'm trying to find some spark plugs. When I enter my Reg into most sites it recommends quite a few types/brands. 
       
      My Haynes manual says, Champion N7YCC or N7YC. 
       
      Haynes manual also says the 1.3L's engine code is HH, none of the plugs I've seen so far show this code.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello,
       
      cutting a a long story short, my car (Mk2f AAV) hasn't idled or drive right for some time, so changed fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor, new leads, oil filter, blue temp sensor and it go no better.
       
      my local mechanic ran it through diagnostic and it just told him the air/ fuel mixture was all over the place, however it didn't tell him anything specific. He's recommended I take it to a specialist. 
       
      So, has anyone come across anything similar to this? Before I take it to my nearest specialist
       
      cheers
      jono
