Re: Parking / legal question

I have thought about leaving one on the truck to be honest :lol:

Anyway, from the initial post which suggested confrontations had already ensued - I think we're past the point of leaving nice or nasty notes.

Re: Parking / legal question

Annoying. I would just put a "Don't park like a cunt" message under their wipers. There are two guys that live opposite us that I believe are both in the building trade and/or plumbers and at they have an old 944 (which they put under a cover and doesn't turn a wheel for months) plus two dog cock re...

Re: What’s ‘too early’ on a Sunday?

I would say it would be reasonable to expect people to follow the general accepted rules for professional contractors for noisy building works (as below). I can't think of any good reason for thinking its fine as a private individual if its prohibited for a contractor. The exception is obviously if ...

Re: Arise Sir Geoffrey

Seemingly not. A lot of that article is clearly hearsay but the fact that a British judge noted her evidence in relation to her bankruptcy proceedings was “characterised by inconsistency which was of such a degree as to suggest a deliberate lack of truthfulness” doesn't really cast her in a very goo...

Re: 60-100 times

I believe you are being unmental. Maybe they are too quick to be timed? :? They are pretty swift even at m-way speeds. I had a bit of fun with one recently and there was not much in it up to 120. The 911 was quicker and I'm sure I would have 'hammered him into dust' if we'd have taken it up to the ...

Re: Man spends £30,000 fighting £100 speeding fine

I found this article that was linked on the BBC website much more amusing https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-h ... e-44058417 :lol:

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

I said I want Labour to get mauled at the polls by either Cons/TBP or Lib Dems. I want to see them lose a significant share of their vote to the other parties - any of the other main parties in fact. I'd have listed all the other main parties but I couldn't be 4rsed typing them out. ;) That in no w...

If the Model S driver doesn't beat the Taken, will Musk call him a Paedo?
Was that autocorrect? Have you tried Macan?
It does seem very unfortunate that they now have cars called the Macan and also the Taycan. Is the next one going to be the Praia da Luz?

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

I would wholeheartedly rather see a small number of Brexit Party represented in parliament than Labour be in power - because being clear - that's all we are talking about here. They are never likely to win more than a smattering of seats under FPTP. You seem to be in some fantasy land where you're t...

Re: Porsche Taycan first drive - Fully Charged

It would've made far more sense to call the faster one the 'S', like the Boxster, Cayman, 911, etc. I suspect there’ll be an S and a non-S too. They’ve also got the moniker GTS in the line up too. I wonder how many different versions of essentially the same thing they’ll make... we have a name so t...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

Macron certainly does and it only takes one of them to demur. There's one thing in not wanting us to leave but another in trapping us in a never-ending limbo where they have to keep discussing it with us like picking at a wound that won't heal. In some respects, the integrationists certainly do want...

Re: eBay 996 build thread

I was expecting it to be more frightening if I'm honest! Good old Northern labour rates helping you there as well I think - the Southern indys are quite a bit dearer on the whole.

Re: Porsche Taycan first drive - Fully Charged

What a knob. Porsche have only ever used that nomenclature on cars which have had an actual turbo. They omitted it in certain instances where it was more relevant to call it something else (i.e. GT2) or where they're ashamed of it (718 and 991.2 and 992 Carreras and to preserve the cache of the fast...

This reminds me of the update to the Fiat multipla. Less horrific but the horror at least made it amusing - now its just merely ugly.

Even more pedantically, Porsche SE has >50% of the voting rights but only 30% of the economic interest in the VAG group. In addition, I believe the structure was only permitted to give Porsche SE de facto voting control as VAG management were appointed to management positions in Porsche SE to contro...
