Re: Parking / legal question

Why don't you get a Smart car and park perpendicular to the kerb ?

A bit passive aggressive but totally above board :D

Re: 2020 LR Defender

How does it fit size wise alongside a Disco Sport? And in terms of off-road tech/capability? And towing capacity? Disco Sport has max. towing capacity of 2200 kg the new Defender can tow 3720 kg 8-) One is suitable for towing a caravan the other for pulling a combine harvester out of a field :lol:

Re: Your fleet running reports

Why not just lease a L200 for £200 odd per month ?

You haven't had much luck with used ones and they do have a hard life.

They do a SWB commercial Land Cruiser now which I think is available in the UK ?
A Prado basically. Not a real LC.
Aren't they similarly engineered just smaller (slightly) ?

Re: Bicyclist thread

How does the extra weight of the e-bike feel when you're doing technical/gnarly trails? I've never sat on one, let alone ridden one, but the assumption is that weight will make it more difficult on anything other than fast flowing stuff? I’ve ridden a Specialized Levo Turbo down twisty downhill sin...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Topped up brake fluid on the Megane. Imminent death, 'Brake system failure' warning hasn't shown up since. Check your nipples and make sure they arent leaking. its very unusual for the brake fluid to drop. Points to a leak somewhere. The Brembos have two nipples on the front callipers. Or pad wear !

Re: Any Weber fans?

Weber's own briquettes are excellent as well, they burn for hours.

Spatchcock Whole Chicken is probably my favourite thing to do, hour ish indirect 😎

I never seen to have the time to do an 8hr long slow cook pork butt ☹️

Always liked the boomerang 3200gt. Even got a reasonable jl spec plate with a little dodgy spacing 😀 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F293186916807 Given that’s where I got my Porsche from, I wonder if they’ll do a straight swap? 🤔 Go for it 8)

Re: eBay 996 build thread

...there’s damage to the underside of the front bumper, the frunk floor is dented and the exhaust tips are scraped underneath. There’s also some damage on the rear bumper where the towing eye caught it when it was breaking free. FFS. Unbelievable. If you've seen Rev on Twitter he won't accept that ...
