Spiegel Heizung abschatbar.

je ein Wippschalter mit sichtbarer roter Farbmarkierung, wenn die Heizung eingeschaltet ist. Leicht in die Türverkleidung einzubauen, oberhalb der Lautsprecher.

The mirrors heating elements are steady switched on.

Switch for the electric heated mirrors, on each door, assembled to the door cover just above the speaker. The switch has a red coloured dot when activated. The installation of this feature is easy. The wire that should be cut is easy to find when removing the door cover, nearby the mirrors.

Guys, the 'reasons' we did this was to produce a car that was both very powerful but also very driveable.
Gerry has had numerous suspension,brake and cooling upgrades on the car and even had the stock engine upgraded the previous year so it was a reasonably quick safe car but lacked the edge it deserved.
I had already decided to replace my engine and gearbox in my F with a i-vtec from the new civic type R and Gerry voluanteered to be the guinea pig as he knew that by the time I had got round to installing mine as a'non paying customer' he would be too old to drive;-)and he needed a reason to spend the family inheritance. I agreed to swallow most of the development costs and did the work at weekends when the shop was closed. Gerry has an idea how much he has spent on it as he has purchased all the parts himself, I have mearly put it together to establish build time and prototyping .
There are several modifications to the standard car required before the conversion (really it is not a conversion but a different car) can be undertaken,brakes, suspension, cooling (rad and fan), fuel pump,gearlinkage,remote oil filter,drive shafts, exhaust manifold/ exhaust, cooling pipes, induction kit and engine and gearbox mounts.
Cost of the engine and gearbox with ancillaries can vary depending on the breakers yard but is comparable to buying a 6 speed gear box from Quaife...about 3k.(The earlier vtec engines are not suitable as they rotate anti-clockwise and the gearbox is on the rhs)
As a conversion to other customers the components can be productionised but still low volume high cost parts.That said I will be making enough 'specialised parts', such as drive shafts, to make up 6 kits. I don't know if we will offer this as a inhouse install due to the day to day work we have and another 'special' I am building. If I had to stab at the costs for a total package fitted(supply engine g/boxetc), not including brakes and suspension then £8.5k would be a ball park figure and we would not install it without the suspension and brakes being brought up to standard,with this conversion the car will pull 8000 in 6th and the 0-60 time is sub 6sec, so it is not safe without the extra work. (BTW the reason there are quite a few Type R's in breakers yards is because the handling and braking is not good enough for the speed of the car IMO)

Any body looking at doing this would get the same answer I used to say to people wanting to 'invest' in a classic car rebuild, it isn't an investment it is a hobby and hobbies cost money;-)
