  3. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    If you need something to let your family grow, why not keep the smax instead?
  4. SPOTY 2017

    I suspect you will find that "his public" don't give a tw@. In spite of the fact that most people on here will watch some motorsport & many of those include F1. It has always been a minority sport & the fact that most of it now resides on "pay tv" only re-inforces this further. He will probably (even as we speak) be consoling himself between the warm wetted parts of the latest conquest & doing a good fist of "smug face" just to keep him going through the off-season, whilst counting the millions.
  5. The £1k mobile phone

    Are you sure it isn't a pocket roulette game you have bought?
  6. Getting side steps fitted on an Outlander?

    I ain't got a feckin' clue mate.
  7. Getting side steps fitted on an Outlander?

    Most people call it abuse!
  8. Getting side steps fitted on an Outlander?

    I would have thought anyone who knows which end of a spanner to use could do it.
  9. Audi A8 tyre size issue

    It will increase the rolling diameter of the wheel so will (fractionally) reduce acceleration & (fractionally) if the car can red line in top gear will (fractionally) increase top speed. It will fractionally reduce revs/mph although your speedo will still read the same for a given revs.
  10. Audi A8 tyre size issue

    Yes, by 2.5% of 245mm = 6mm.
  11. Leasing for Dummies?

    Nice unfortunately, it is powered by the juice of Satan!
  12. But then thinking about it that is probably standard really.
  13. I realise they are only covering their own, but you never know it may help.
  14. 0.23 seconds of googles time gave this as no1 hit.
  15. 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.
  16. Have you tried finding out who her current co. car is insured with as they will have her on record as not claiming?
  17. engine upgrades

    Wouldn't you be better off speaking to them as they broke it due to incompetence?
  18. 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.
  20. They are on a lengthened Elise chassis IIRC.
  21. 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.
  22. Back Window.

  23. 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.
