Re: Sport seats are the best

I can drive for hours in BMW sports seats - every BMW I've owned, whereas VW seats (from the basic model ones to the sports ones in my GTI) start to hurt after about 2 hours - there's something fundamentally wrong in the geometry of them for me. In a (E60 onwards) 5-series, the comfort seats are wa...

Re: Coronavirus

Oh, and just like taxes, planning laws, interest rates, wars and everything else there is no end game. It’s a process of the elected government dealing with these things as they arise and human beings coping - because that’s what we’re good at. Even if Elon, Jeff and Richard begin to colonise anothe...

Do you really believe that? I don’t think I’ve ever met a true nihilist before.

Hope you have the ferret on a lead like in The Big Lebowski.

Re: Today’s want

Don’t mind the wheels, but couldn’t buy it in that colour scheme. Green paint is just about OK, interior might work with black paint but isn’t nice at all.

Price seems bonkers too. I’m not sure I understand Alpina these days.

Perhaps…

Would have been louder at Harry’s Farm; similar distance away but much lower. He’s gone round again now too; I thought he was landing but he pulled up and came back. Bad weather night training perhaps?

Re: Flightradar24 fans

Noticed a noise as I headed for bed - surprising how much of a racket the A400-M makes at 19,000ft a mile or so away. What’s he up to?

Re: Your fleet running reports

Hmm, 400 miles feels a bit limited though I guess isn’t bad after the M140i.

Re: Your fleet running reports

2 weeks into life with the 330e and it's been great. A very busy 2 weeks covering nearly 2400 miles at an impressive 52mpg including 480 miles on electric. It's comfy and very quiet. A brilliant place to do a lot of miles and I'm very happy with my choice. I have had a go at using the charger netwo...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Shall I book in for an OV9 pretentious-wanky-nobfest gathering next summer? :D Not necessarily at C&M but I would be keen to do this in the spring / summer (being a general meet up rather than the "wanky nobfest" part :lol: ). I'm still annoyed that I missed the last one because someo...

Re: At least 30 asylum seekers die after dinghy capsizes in Channel.

Probably a good idea to engage with France and discuss a cooperative arrangement then, rather than Boris stamping his foot in public and nixing the talks before they start.

Re: At least 30 asylum seekers die after dinghy capsizes in Channel.

Migrants aren't just to be dealt with by France and the UK, I agree. But deaths in the English Channel are a specific problem which only the UK and France can address, ideally together or you end up with Priti Patel's ridiculous policies such as jetski dodgems.

Re: At least 30 asylum seekers die after dinghy capsizes in Channel.

Boris is all about the political posturing as opposed to a proper deal with France, and he's fucked up again. Talks now off because it's clear to the French it's all for show, as evidenced by him posting his letter to Macron on social media.

Nice photo Matt.

I’ve never been to C&M but it’s not that far away - just feels like it might be a bit wanky. Is that the case?

Re: The Watches Thread

That GP looks a bit like an AP Royal Oak copy. Not sure about it.

Got to go with whatever you love so keep trying them - I like seeing interesting watches.
