  2. Fernando Alonso to quit F1 at the end of this season.

    Can’t say I blame him. He’ll win more stuff yet. Including the Indy I reckon. The day will come when motorsport historians (the ones who actually know the sport beyond F1) will rate Alonso as one of the all time greats.
  3. Fernando Alonso to quit F1 at the end of this season.

    It was inevitable but I do feel sorry for him and for the sport in general that we don't get to see the best drivers battle it out properly. Talent lost from the sport
  4. The two-time world champion is to make a full-time switch to the Indy Car series.
  5. Last week
  6. Countach kit

    The lookup of the reg doesn't tell the whole story. It's a V12 Zagato - not just a vantage. Rare - 150 built. Here is a similar on that sold for 655000. They were £330k new https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/LF16/London/lots/r169-2012-aston-martin-v12-zagato/384495

    Any idea on the AM model and what the black car in the background is?

  10. Daniel Ricciardo to leave Red Bull

    I suspect he also didn't want a Honda donkey engine in the car too.

    Great it was a good addition in the past will see if I can find it.
  12. Daniel Ricciardo to leave Red Bull

    Going to be very interesting to see how this pans our. Renault have got some very good technical guys that haven't joined recently so it will be interesting to see how this goes. I think he wanted the move to get out under the shadow of Max which they have obviously got as No. 1 drive and I suspect he will get a chunk extra cash. One article seems to think he will be getting £20m which will be way more than Redbull were offering.
  13. Daniel Ricciardo to leave Red Bull

    ... set to make switch to Renault for 2019 It's a bold move and I guess he's hoping to replicate Hamilton's 2011 move to Merc. He will partner Nico Hulkenberg.

  15. MK Meet - Weds 1st Aug

    Well the glorious weather continued long enough for us to all sit outside for the second month in a row! 6 attendees worked nicely with the hexagonal tables with six seats. Remembered when we sat down that I hadn't taken any photos, so I popped back out to the car park and took these two as the sun went down (Richards A8 and Gregs Passat parked elsewhere in car park with other cars either side) Next meet Weds 5th Sept

    And what's going on with the line spacing - I'm not trying to separate myself from the rest of you I promise!

    BMW never took all the buttons away, even on my 330i years ago it still had many of the normal buttons and buttons that you can set to do what you want as a quick shortcut. As for the 8, yeah its moved even more upmarket from the 6 of before and more premium options to boot and its an entirely new car.
  19. RS3 - Saloon!

    Yep, buttons and I drive is a better combo, like the Audi MMI. Just an I drive knob and button is too complicated. Although, probably get used to it. The new 8, does it replace the 6 or sit above it, slightly longer, wider and quicker?
  20. RS3 - Saloon!

    Yeah I can see that I was going to say I will be interested to see what they look like when I see one in the flesh. Certainly think they are quite colour sensitive but overall a really good looking car to me. See what the 4 door looks like.
  21. RS3 - Saloon!

    It could be a “in the flesh” car and in those pics it looks great. I need to be persuaded or I’m keeping mine until it starts going up in value!!
  22. RS3 - Saloon!

    I remember as a kid spotting my first 8-er, it looked totally unique. I can still picture it parked there today.
  23. RS3 - Saloon!

    I still think the new one looks stunning and as for the comment on buttons BMW have had good use of buttons and Drive for a long time its a great balance.
  24. RS3 - Saloon!

    I do like those original 8's. More character and individuality about them. You can't mistake the shape for anything else.
  25. RS3 - Saloon!

    I rather stick my money on this 840Ci A one owner, 40,700 mile show-condition 840Ci with the 4.4 litre engine and Sport spec. http://www.classicandperformancecar.com/bmw/840/bmw-840-in-west-malling-kent-united-kingdom/521165/ad
  26. RS3 - Saloon!

    I see BMW have stuck buttons back in their cars, and not just the idrive jobbie. That 8 was full of buttons. The display seemed a bit small.
