    Hi everyone,

    My name is Simon Ward and i live in Guernsey, Channel Islands, i bet there is no one else on here from the Channel Islands???

    My dad owns a 96' 840ci which is in mint showroom condition and hardly even a weekend car it is treasured that much.

    I myself race a Peugeot 205 in our local Hillclimbs and Sprints, i have just invested alot of money in a new 205 build (the biggest on the island) and am still working on a few issues to get it running to top spec.

    Anyway, my dad is going through the 840 tidying up and cleaning the engine bay etc and has come accross a couple of oddities and needs some help. I know in the peugeot 205 community i have found some priceless help and backup within forums so here i am and will hopefully be welcomed into the forum and offerred some advice on my dad 840ci.

    Best Regards

    Simon

    Welcome, I'm sure there will be some e31 owners that can help you and your dad.
    I went to Guernsey and Jersey about 2 years ago and saw an unbelievable number of awesome cars! I was stumped as to why soo many people had such nice/fast cars on a island soo small.

    PS: Is there still that little car park with several dumped cars down the road from the Cobo Bay Hotel?

    There's alot of sheds too beleive me, we have no MOT so you can drive a cardboard box as long as its road worthy!! But yes there are some very nice cars on the island and alot of money on the island so i suppose it goes hand in hand. The motorsport is also very big on island and comes in many forms.
