  1. New pants please

    Clarkson would be proud! Smart Motorways
  2. Bidding for upgrades - any "knack" to it?

    Just make one bid, I'd suggest the min plus £20-40. The bidding system will say you've made a poor bid however, it's not worth going crazy as you'll end up paying more than the ticket cost. If you never have flown in UC you're better off trying it during daylight hours to enjoy the service. On the redeye, you'll be paying an extra £700+ for an uncomfortable seatbed either wishing everyone else in the cabin would shut up so you can sleep or watching TV all night in a dark cabin wondering where all the cabin crew has disappeared to.
  3. S8 V10 findings after a few weeks of ownership

    My A6 Allroad started loosing air in one corner when I was up in northern Finland. Think it was just the cold (-30c) more so than a pump or bag failure as it was fine futher south.
  4. Kubica

    Sadly, I don't think he'll ever be in F1 again, but it's good to see him back behind the wheel!
  5. Kubica

    Fast forward six years and it looks like it’s happening .... Robert Kubica all set for full-time F1 return with Williams https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/kubica-williams-race-deal-2019/4301134/
  6. New pants please

    Think the new pants award went to the drive of the white Mitsubishi backing all the way up around the bend.
  7. I think the Yank custom car builders (Counts Customs, Gas Monkey etc) excel at that stuff when they totally rebuild/replace the chassis along adding new V8 running gear.
  8. Incredible build from Piper Motorsport who grafted a mid-Eighties Mercedes-Benz 190E on to the chassis and powertrain from a modern C63 AMG sedan. "To make a long story short... the 190E will feature the engine, transmission, entire driveline, suspension, brakes, firewall, dash, electronics and even the floor pan from the C63 AMG," the description for the shop's incredibly-detailed Facebook album reads. And it is indeed a long story, the first picture showing the two donor cars side-by-side was uploaded a full five years ago. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Piper-Motorsport-486605745510/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10153349096740511

    Dashcam footage from last nights smash on the M40. A car with foreign plates driving the wrong way in the fast lane - towing a caravan

    In case you missed last weeks news, like I did, Fifth Gear is no more
  11. RIP: Fifth Gear TV Show

    Well, I like FG. it's down to earth and straight to the point. None of the BS that some other motoring shows drag you through.
  12. New pants please

    The video is sped up which makes it look even more dramatic (look at the timestamp seconds).

  15. New pants please

    It's almost as if he was saved by his wing mirror
  16. New pants please

    What a save!
  17. A few from the village car show

    It's a Morris Minor tourer series 1 (pre-1952).
  18. The two-time world champion is to make a full-time switch to the Indy Car series.
  19. 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.
  20. RIP: Fifth Gear TV Show

  21. RS3 - Saloon!

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

    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
  23. Guy Martin & Coulthard F1 Special

    Lewis Bieber must be doing estrogen injections with all the mood swings he experienced all weekend.
  24. RS3 - Saloon!

    Likewise, as soon as I saw his deformed smug face I turned it off.
