Re: Your fleet running reports

I bought a lovely little cottage back in June, which also meant I'd no longer be walking to work. As much as I'd love to be using the 650i every day, it's far too costly, especially with the round trip being 60 miles. So I acquired a 2.2 diesel Civic (FN shape) from a family friend not long after t...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Took the M240i to Knockhill on Sunday for the BTCC which involved parking on the grass on the far side of the hill...Which was soaking wet...The combination of Michelin Pilot Super Sports and RWD is not the best on wet grass unsurprisingly. Well and truly stuck. Needed to rope some folk in to push ...

Careful. Remember, if you say her name 3 times out loud then she appears and you can't get rid of her. She threatened me with her "team" of lawyers a few years back. I felt quite special. Oooh, definitely needs more info. It was nothing major. They were taking the piss out of her over on the Lupo f...

Re: Your fleet running reports

My 7g box when repaired had a replacement "clutch pack", I always assumed each gear had it's own clutch, but TBH it might as well just be a bunch of tiny people crammed inside the casing changing gear for me for all I understand of it.

Re: FTAO of mobile phone owners/users

This. Plus screen protectors are awful things. Never use screen protectors - they're nasty. A decent case will have a lip so the screen never touches a surface when face down, and never put anything in your pocket along with the phone, and you're all set. Try doing my job, just keeping a phone in o...

Re: 60-100 times

That's insanely quick :shock: exhaust mods only? I timed the Evora this afternoon. I can genuinely say "it doesn't suit my gearing" and goes to show how long the gearing is on the standard box. 2nd tops out at 85, but 3rds too long; took around 10 seconds for the 60-100 dash :lol: as you're only at...

This is brilliant. Particularly loved this bit: "The clown even mimicked crying as Jack’s employers handed him the redundancy paperwork – and blew up a balloon unicorn an d a poodle to help ease the situation."

Leave it with me.

I should really re-do the Exige too as I suspect it’ll dip into the high 4s now.
If you really wanted to time the Exige you would have done it by now.
Erm.

Re: Your fleet running reports

I think my bike had three completely different sets of advisories on the last three MOTs. Nothing done and barely ridden in between those. Doubt anyone cares about me leasing boring cars but I've signed up for a VW e-Golf for January when the GTE goes back. 3+23, £246pm. For someone that didn't thi...

Re: New iPhones

Do real people even care about phones any more? It's people asking for processing power and RAM that get me. Who needs 6/8GB of RAM in a phone? I know PC's that have less and do more. And my Pixel3a has a "midrange" processor, which people complained was old/slow on release. But if I press a button...
