Good few bout Sligo, still big on old school bout us though. But leave the North and West everything has gone Jap. Was in wexford and they didn't know what I was driving.

I've only ever seen two original Irish Opel Calibra's, Veronica Gureen's and theres one on carzone at moment.

Ok. You guys got any problem driving a LHD? I had a RHD Mitsubishi Mx a few years ago and wasn1t the best exp. in my life.I couldnt change gears properly. Does anyone know a place where I can get parts for my Cally which are otherwise no longer available?I mean I have a 1996 turbo and my 4x4 ecu is gone(some jerk ripped it out long before i bought the car) and I cant get a new no matter where I try.

I drove LHD in states, was handy enough. Mostly V8 pick ups and vans, reversing was main problem kept lookking over my left shoulder still :D

Parts for Calibras are rare enough, best bet is try ebay or track down cars being breaked using Buy and Sell papers etc

I've never had a problem with LHD (despite being more used to RHD) - except in an emergency:  try approaching a hairpin bend too fast, in too high a gear, on a steep descent and instinctively trying to change down... with the door handle...  Aaaargh!  ;D ;D

The only other problem I have is when I come back to Blighty.  I don't usually have any trouble driving on the right, but when I get back to England after a couple of weeks driving on the continent, I find it more difficult adjusting back to driving on the left.

Hello all, am new to this site, I'm in Tipp and i'd be well up for a calibra meet, but my cally is going for paint shortly so i dont know how long it will take but it's a great idea especially as we're such an 'exclusive' club here in Ireland!!! Simon

Only about 15 members in the Republic have added their Pins to the Member Map, although I'm sure that there are a lot more Calibras in Ireland.  I note that no members in Dublin - including you - have yet added their pin...  If you want to find one another, with a view to a possible meeting, it helps if you include your location and add a pin to the Member Map.

I appreciate that you're in Eire and may be looking for help from other Irish members, but please start a new thread for requests like this in the appropriate forum (the Wanted section).  Even if you include Ireland in the title to make it clear that a flywheel in England may not be much use to you.

If you've got any scrapyards in your area, it might be worth looking for any old Calibras, or Astras with the C20XE engine as they are likely to be more common than Calibras.
