  1. Beefing up the standard S4 hifi

    My mate phoned me once at home relating to it : "I've just seen your Mondeo going around a roundabout on two wheels with all the windows down blasting out Mr Boombastic" I married an Essex girl
  2. Beefing up the standard S4 hifi

    Have you done a trial in the cars? I went for the B&O system (2010 model) as I didn't like the stock system. Now I know one persons quality system is anothers POS but I'm more than happy with it. It's now old tech, lacking in album image display etc and I'm sure the new one is improved. I'm still more than happy with the sound : 5.1 surround (if you ever need it), DSP for much improved delivery over balance/gain etc, 505W with 10 amps and 14 speakers ... and it was 'only' £500 at the time. Would I do that in a car I'd have for a couple of year - probably not. I used to have company cars. I'd put chokes on the front speakers and then slam my Alpine sub in the boot powered by my Kenwood mono-amp. It transformed the cars. It was a quick fix and meant I lost boot space etc but it worked for me. In fact I still have the sub and amp in the loft!!
  3. Cool bike vids

    I LOLed :D
  4. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Shoebox lined with tin foil? Shall I go into production?
  5. SPOTY 2017

    I'm not a Hamilton hater (can't be arsed expending any energy or emotion on him) but I'll be delighted if AJ gets its. Amazing achievement, has a personality and highly likeable with it too
  6. Driving mode on Android or iPhone?

    S8 : You could try "Out Loud". Can have one app read out for free/testing then a mighty £1.99 fo full app. Can activate when on bluetooth etc.
  7. Motor GP - Valencia

    He had most crashes which to my mind means most experience of pushing on/over the edge = ability to go to the limit/over when the actual race is on. Very Schumacher like in that regard. His ability to get ride away from so many crashes is incredible. No one does it like him. A true talent. They repeated a documentary recently of his rookie season and Rossi clearly recognised the talent when he said Marquez could go on and eclipse what he'd done. So young and so good. I doubt he'll last as long as Rossi (incredible feat!!) but he could beat most of his records.
  8. Why you don't stop on the Ring

    Coolant was also the issue for the closure before that bike lap. Slippery stuff!!!
  9. Why you don't stop on the Ring

    I can't see what the original incident was but it looked strange that he stopped. If he should have then he did it right .... although I don't get why he wasn't running back and going back a lot further. However, he did what he felt best at the time and it's a lot better than many. The 'ring is full of blind bends and crests and this is the known risk. You simply don't know what's gonna be around the corner or what the surface will be etc. That was demonstrated today by this lucky escape. The rider feels he should have done a sighting lap first as it had just reopened. However a sighting lap can also give you a false sense of security as it could all change in the seconds before you arrive.
  10. Carwash Spots

    Red pics - both made me smile
  11. MotoGP - Australia (Phillip Island)

    Today was never gonna live up to the last two ... but still good
  12. MotoGP - Australia (Phillip Island)

    Was awesome! The last two races have been better than a whole season of F1. That's not a biker biased view but simply based on the action and number of overtakes etc. Rubbing is racing as they say
  13. Carwash Spots

    A few recent different cars. Sorry for the blurred double E-type shot Pics should be like the first two now due to new phone The Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster was just driving past
  14. Dream bike - R1M

    A proper tool. Only seen positive reports and I'm sure you'll love it. Did you just not sync with the MT10? Wrong style?
