Hi Steve and welcome!

I’m looking forward to seeing some photos of your A. 😀 I had an A around the same time as you but didn’t modify anything on it but there will be plenty of advice coming from others I’m sure. Good Luck.

My first car in 1984 was a Manta A, i have just returned to the fold and bought another!

Whats the best way to upgrade the front brakes these days?

Hey Welcome back to Manta ownership and the forums 🍻👍

Modded Audi 80 brake discs from Mantasport and Astra GTE calipers is the easiest route now.

Thanks all! The car came from London where it had been garaged since the early nineties. I'm after a front spoiler but I assume very rare now.

A couple of pictures from 1984/5 at the drag races Stratford-upon-Avon with my first manta, around the same time I also had a monza blue berlinetta and yellow SR, the white one  cost £500.00 the other two a couple of hundred each!

Nice early Berlinetta in the best colour. I think reproduction spoilers are available, althought the only UK model thatcame with them was the Turbo.
