Re: Your fleet running reports

Changed them last year when it was in for a major service as I that was my first guess at what was causing the problem. :( I'd also guess that as it is happening across random cylinders on both banks it has to be something that would affect running more generally rather than a part (i.e. injector, p...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Ok so, they've now done a more thorough investigation of the car with someone driving and a second tech watching the live data. When the hesitation happens the car does apparently occasionally log a single misfire. I'm weirdly happy about this as it means I'm not going fucking mad! Sadly it hasn't r...

Re: Electoral oddness

Is this thread about vote rigging?

Seriously though - I have no idea what this is about.

Re: Ferrari Roma

Not keen on the front but I like the rest. A more graceful 612 in my mind. It does have a whiff of DB11 about it though, I agree.

Re: Your fleet running reports

It has a slight dip at around 2600-2800 rpm but I think that's already above the level at which I feel the hesitation. Graph doesn't go down much below 2500 so not that helpful. Overall the curves look pretty smooth so nothing jumps out :?

Re: Your fleet running reports

With impeccable timing (Friday night, just starting to pee down) the passenger side window regulator let go. Worse than that, it seems to have eaten the cable and jammed itself fast halfway down. Cue an emergency trip down to nine excellence this morning. At least I got to drool over their showroom...

Interestingly its mandatory to put "R" (for restricted) plates on your car in NI for a year after passing.

Re: Your fleet running reports

People do get impatient with hesitant or dilatory drivers - you seem to be suggesting that they'd be more so if you put P plates on. I agree that certain people may not pay attention to them or still become impatient but for a significant number or normal people it would likely encourage them to be ...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Really? I'm cynical of the state of society but surely people don't harass new drivers to gain an advantage in traffic, etc.?

Re: Anti-semitism

It is far wider than Israel/Palestine though. The hard left are anti-capitalist in a way that the moderate or Blairite left fundamentally are not. The anti-capitalism movement has strong strains of anti-semitism woven within it centered around the conspiracy theories of pan-global billionaire Jewish...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

I think this is a fairly clear policy from Labour. They are against No Deal, they don't like Boris's deal and once they get a credible deal, they'll put it back to the people. https://twitter.com/jeremycorbyn/status/1189823934423801857 But: it may be seen as just can-kicking, amongst an electorate ...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

No but they don't need to. The Lord Adonis's and Farage's of this world will never accept anything less than absolutes - the key is just bringing along the majority. Given the recent polling suggested 2/3's of the population wanted the current deal passed - that would romp home if you gave the optio...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

We all know that one of the definitions of stupidity is to keep repeating something and expecting a different outcome. So what exactly is this general election going to achieve? And more importantly, WTF can I vote for which will help bring this shit show to an end? Swinson? Or just vote tactically...

Re: The House Projects Thread

Your figure is not far off what I was quoted. Joiner thought it would take 3-4 days though. I guess that's right if you work 8-1pm...

I was expecting 2-3 days at 200ish day rate so 600 fixed quote. £800ish seems steep to me - even for London.

Re: Teh Spotted Thread

I don't mind the design of the wheels per se (after all, they are essentially the same as the middle of the split rim RS wheels but without the outer rim) but the are pretty tiny and out of proportion. Never seen Cup 1s on a 993 either - think they'd look a bit weird as are a 964/944 wheel in my eyes.
