    5 posts in 9 years is probably our going rate these days. Lovely cars. How’s the fuel economy for the GTR? I guess you’re probably doing 3 weeks to the gallon at the moment..,
  2. Boxing hopeful - Tyson Fury

    Well done Tyson. Must admit I didn’t see the finish happening that way. In order I had Tyson on points Wilder by Ko Wilder by points Tyson by ko. I fancied Fury for the win but honestly didn’t think he had the power or was prepared to get close enough to use it and risk being taken out himself. Just cant wait for that all UK showdown between two of the best heavyweights on the planet Fury v Haye oh wait......
  3. 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..
  4. 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.
  5. 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. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.autoexpress.co.uk/mercedes/c-class/94519/new-half-fat-mercedes-amg-c-43-coupe-revealed%3famp
  6. RS3 - Saloon!

    Looks like some point in 2020.
  7. "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.
  8. Roof Bars Conundrum

    Not quite what you asked but could hiring a closed trailer be an option?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Insurance costs?

    Biggest con ever. So many lazy people though so the insurance companies make a killing.
  12. Insurance costs?

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/car-insurance-premiums-fall-for-first-time-in-two-years-a8329751.html 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.
  13. 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.
  14. RS3 - Saloon!

    Thanks Ian.....
  15. 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.
