  1. Leasing for Dummies?

    Nice unfortunately, it is powered by the juice of Satan!
  2. But then thinking about it that is probably standard really.
  3. I realise they are only covering their own, but you never know it may help.
  4. This was hit no3.
  5. 0.23 seconds of googles time gave this as no1 hit.
  6. Sorry, yes I see what you mean now, I misread & thought it was the end of a co. car & wanting insurance afterwards. Ignore me & my old-timers disease.
  7. Have you tried finding out who her current co. car is insured with as they will have her on record as not claiming?
  8. engine upgrades

    Wouldn't you be better off speaking to them as they broke it due to incompetence?
  9. engine upgrades

    You can pretty much (assuming it will fit) swap any engine for any other, the issue is how much work/adaptation will be required. ECU will be different but if it has the same socket & input pin-out it could be easy, if not it could be hard. The same could be true of ANY plug/socket/nut/bolt anywhere in the engine bay & the most (apparently) simple job can easily grow arms, wings, legs horns & turn into a nightmare. This would beg me the question why? If you just want an update it would be MASSIVELY simpler, quicker & cheaper to change the car. At least doing it that way you don't then have the issue of insurance, because if you don't tell them, they will disown you when you need them the most and potentially cost you your sanity, wallet and even freedom massively.

    I am guessing he will consol himself with a bl0w j0b from the latest super model & go to sleep with a smile on his face. i would if I was in his position, even after winning driver of the day, good race.
  11. They are on a lengthened Elise chassis IIRC.
  12. Leasing for Dummies?

    Service is extremely rare without cost implications, I enquired with mine & it worked out more to include it as it assumed 2 services in 2 years but of course I only need 1 in the middle.
  13. Back Window.

  14. Leasing for Dummies?

    No is the simple answer. I am sure there is more to it, but that is my experience. I leased a Citroen C1 as a runabout when I had the 3er track car only (I am about to send the C1 back as I now have the Cooper to perform both tasks) after selling the 530. Just remember that the lease only effectively covers rental of the car, you still need to insure, tax & service yourself, unless some manufacturers will include this at additional cost. Especially an issue when considering your previous question just.

    Since Mr P came back that is.

    Be careful what you claim/counterclaim, t'interwebz has a memory don't you know!
  18. The Caterham Build

    Sounds a right hoot, once again well done to all.
  19. The Caterham Build

    Well done Mr P, tell us more?

    The issue I have with the penalty has been well talked about over the years. If the rule is keep all 4 wheels on circuit at all times then apply it. No grey areas. Kimi did move, Max did respond, Max went off track, they didn't crash, Kimi didn't complain, no penalty UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES. You cannot have a rule that basically says "remain on track, if you leave & gain an advantage you will get a penalty" because then you need someone to define "gain an advantage" and that person (by definition) wasn't there in the car making that decision. During that race everyone went off track & by virtue of the fact that there wasn't gravel there, they all gained an advantage, otherwise they would have been beached in the kitty litter.

    Max Verstappen....... Discuss?
  22. Returning a lease car early

    Yes, it is.
  23. Ferrari 288 GTO 'recreation'

    Certainly a fair stab at it apart from front grille & wheels. Definitely passes the first glance test.

    Conversely, I just think he is COMPLETELY out of his depth!

    Didn't you know he is from the planet Zog?
