  1. S8 V10 findings after a few weeks of ownership

    It's probably the air pocket created by the empty wallet in your back pocket that's making for a smoother ride..
  2. RIP: Fifth Gear TV Show

    Pretty good so far with a lot of 'normal ' cars on show which I like. Top Gear turned into a 14 year old boys fantasy with little hope of us mere mortals buying anything they were showing. I wish they would do away with the 'race' at the end of comparing cars. The fast laps one car at a time were a much better feature in the past.
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    The 8 series is a good looking car but it's going to be big bucks for a decent spec one. Mac, they might not be the size of car you are looking to change to but having mentioned the RS3 and M2, how about the CLA AMG? I haven't driven it but it supposedly dissects the RS3 and M2 in terms of ability and fun. In a similar situation I'm leaning towards the Merc C class coupe 43 AMG. Sure it's a peg down from the the full fat AMG, M, RS but as a package it ticks a lot of boxes.
  4. RS3 - Saloon!

    Looks like some point in 2020.
  5. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Feel for you :-( Apart from the damage it's the knowledge that a piece of scum has been having fun in your pride of joy. Touch wood it never happens but if my car was stolen I would pray for a write off so didn't get it back. I wonder what the future insurance premium impact is between stolen and returned vs write off, a fair chunk I guess.
  6. Roof Bars Conundrum

    Not quite what you asked but could hiring a closed trailer be an option?
  7. GLC 63S

    Very nice. Did they through in a free hat? White looks lovely but I'm guessing it's also ultra practical in the hot sun.
  8. Boxing thread

    Please please please can this be the end for David Haye. I will bore you all by repeating what I always say. A great cruiser but a bang average heavy. Haye is a master con man, worming his way back into big money fights time after time. It's staggering that people honestly believed he was AJ's closest competitor.
  9. Insurance costs?

    Biggest con ever. So many lazy people though so the insurance companies make a killing.
  10. Insurance costs? I love the way we think things are 'falling' or getting cheaper when in reality they have been artificially high over recent years. Still, good news non the less.
  11. Boxing thread

    It's very difficult for them to give an exact time but if you worked with 10pm -10.30pm you wouldn't be too far wrong.
  12. RS3 - Saloon!

    Thanks Ian.....
  13. Electric cars. And tax?

    Didn't JC and Labour want to nationalise the energy companies. Plenty of profits made by said companies plus more to be made if you push everyone to go electric. No need for tax if that materialises.
  14. RS3 - Saloon!

    It was more aimed at Ian C saying 'classics and collectibles didn't go up until for many many years after 05/06'. Basically 'shut up Billy, you're wrong'.
  15. RS3 - Saloon!

    August 2006 I was looking at (and test driving) Grey CSLs with sub 20k on the clock. 3 different cars within a 2 hour drive for me were priced at £32k-£35k. Instead I ordered and waited for the new mkv R32 and shelled out £32k on a heavily loaded one. In November 2007 I got divorced and sold my R32 for £21k, that was the very best figure I could get. I started looking at CSLs again. This time anything sub 25k miles was a shade under £40k and out of reach for me. Sam (Woops) had his at the time I I exchanged many s PM with him. Priced out I bought a Corsa VXR as a bit of fun and put a deposit down on a house. Maybe I was wrong and dreamed the whole thing up.
