Anything that expensive has no excuse for being shoddy.

Re: Interesting tow cars

What about an XC90 V8, I believe a certain member of this establishment used to have one.

Not sure if Mr Yu still has his or not, would probably make light work of a car trailer and sound quite nice whilst doing so.

www.towcar.info

Quite a good site for matching, can add any modifications to the car power/torque etcs into it as well.

Re: Your fleet running reports

So is the new Swift Sport, which was nice to drive, but a bit dull. Also the Swift felt quite bouncy on local roads, and it wasn't as much fun as the older one when pushing on. The new turbo engine isn't one which likes to be revved out, which is a bit against the character of the car, the Fabia eng...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Those Up GTis really do look rather good, 3 or 5 door? It would be a later Fabia with the more reliable engine, they all seem to use oil, but so did my Mini so I'm used to that. Only thing I think we would struggle with if we got an Up is the space, which sadly put an end to getting a C30 T5 as well...

Re: Your fleet running reports

I'd been contemplating a chopping the Evora in for a 400, or potentially an Exige V6 before I move house in 12-18 months. However, my VW Bora daily really is on its last legs, so I decided to spend the difference on a new daily hack instead. Ticking off a configuration I've not owned before, with a...

Re: eBay 996 build thread

Also check the little flap on the ignition barrel isn't sticking (if it has one) as that can cause that to happen.

Last time I saw the Stone Rose's at the Etihad they had Public Enemy as their support, Public Enemy were far better than the Rose's were!

Re: Live Music?? (NDYC's)

I've got a few coming up, The Who, Tenacious D, Iron Maiden, Billy Joel and Wu Tang Clan.

Looking forward to Tenacious D the most I think!

A couple of friends have seen The Who recently and said they weren't great, but it's a night out!

Re: Your fleet running reports

Fitted a bluespark tuning box to the mighty mito. Took about 10 mins and half that was removing and detouring the wiring harness sitting a bit more neatly under the standard pipes and wires, and required no tools. My hands didn't even get dirty. I've left it on the default setting and definitely se...

Re: FTAO of mobile phone owners/users

My S10 is in a hard case with a wallet on the back, as I don't carry a separate wallet, the case holds 4 cards and 5x£20 notes so it's a good substitute for a wallet.

Re: Who still frequents a pub?

I don't go as much as I'd like. By the time I'm back from work and done family stuff I really can't be arsed. It's a shame really as I have a decent little pub in the village and I should support it more. We go occasionally if the MiL can do some child minding. Village brewery usually has a couple ...

We go to the pub quite a lot, we do have some decent pubs and breweries around us though!

Re: FTAO People who travel a lot with work.

Well, as a bit of an update, this is going very well so far. I've got about a bit, mainly US so far, a trip to Brazil and Kuwait in the next 3 months and possibly the task of then staying in Texas for between 1- 3 Months if I fancy it. Work part is great, nice to work somewhere an be appreciated for...

Re: Your fleet running reports

It's weirdly exactly the same price (or was 2 weeks ago) like for like, interestingly our local Sainsburys in only about 2p a litre cheaper for super than the branded places.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Same journey it does every day.

30 miles of 300 miles range is noticable, and it means one extra days commute for no extra cost for me.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Volvo is mapped for 98+ so I have to buy it, definite difference between V-Power and Ultimate, about 30 miles a tank more on V-Power. Weirdly the car which I've noted the most difference in between normal and super was my 406, it used to pull noticeably better above 5k rpm on super, and it sounded s...

Re: Your fleet running reports

The one I looked at is a Dark Silver facelift, pretty much the same colour my MCS was, had full black leather rather than that rubbish R-Design fake stuff.

Nice looking car, comfy, I think a bigger intercooler, block mod and a map and we would be quite happy with one tbh.

Re: Your fleet running reports

I found the rarest of all things at the weekend, an empty, wide stretch of road, setting off to the coast at 4am has its advantages! I can confirm the speed limiter was indeed removed by the mapping on the Volvo, feels very well planted at those speeds as well. I'm sure the fresh, lowered suspension...

Re: CTIIRWOIWAHO

I've been looking, for AGES, now for something to replace the Pug 308 with, finally we're between a C30 T5, a Countryman Cooper S or a Phase 2 S60 T5/6.

It's such a ball ache finding a new car sometimes, this thread provides many new ideas :lol:

I quite fancy a Lexus LS460h tbh.
