  1. My Grand Tour

    If you're in Prague on a weekend the avoid Wenceslas Square after early evening as it's full of pissed brits on stag dos. It's awful. Prague is a great city, I've been there numerous times. If you're planning to visit the castle then take the tram up the hill, it looks a long way up but I found out the hard way that it's even longer than it looks. Don't bother eating at the Old Town Square (where the astronomical clock is) as the food isn't great and the prices are jacked up because of the location. One of my favourite places to eat is Pivovarsky Dum where the service isn't great but the food and beer are excellent. There's loads of choice of hotels, we've stayed in Hotel Noir a few times and would happily go back. We tend not to bother using the Prague metro too much, the city isn't all that big and it's a nice place to walk about.
  2. It was during the holiday season last year they switched off all the cards for people on the beta program. Not ideal.
  3. Just an FYI for anyone that's got a Supercard, it's going to cease to work on 24th July as Travelex are closing it down. Gits. https://www.travelex.co.uk/services/supercard

    Awful, awful news.

    I'm really enjoying this but am holding off reading too much so that I can amuse myself on the flight to middle-of-nowhere Eastern Europe next week. There's a few errors though that I've noticed. It's Schiphol, not Schipol and Orio al Serio, not Orio del Serio. Crikey, I must travel too much if that's the sort of thing I notice.
  6. Coolant loss

    Any white smoke coming from the exhaust? How's the oil looking? It could be head gasket failure or even a cracked block.
  7. I'm looking to spend at most £300 or so on the cameras plus whatever is the going rate for someone competent to install it. Somewhere in or around the Milton Keynes/Northampton/Bedford area would be ideal
  8. The timing of this thread is great, I was planning to get a new dashcam (my DDPai met an unfortunate end) and was looking for a front a rear cam. I need to look for a local installer, I don't want to arse about with the car myself.

    Cheers Rich - my new bog book arrived a few days ago. Haven't had a chance to read it yet.

    You'll excuse me if I don't hold my breath....

    Oh yeah, it's a good move from Alonso. Searching out his options for a drive of some description for 2018. I really can't see him still being in a Mclaren,

    I can't see the love in at Yamaha lasting too long if Maverick continues to beat Rossi. It's great to see Maverick doing so well. Lorenzo cocked up on Sunday but things were not good for Ducati. Dovi was unlucky. HRC have had better race weekends too.
  13. Well they're not exactly quick to send out the certificate. I applied for mine almost 2 months ago and it arived today with a post mark of Friday.

    For sure.

    Either telling them to get stuffed, or not telling them to get stuffed.
