  1. Gap insurance for purchase cars? What else?

    Click4crap http://www.tyresmoke.net/forum/topic/76436-gap-insurance-is-it-worth-it http://www.tyresmoke.net/forum/topic/139650-gap-insurance/ *edit to remove the first half of your quote
  2. Wednesday 6th December, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our new home for the last year now: lovely outside garden area, cosy 16th century core now we are in the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly great food! Last time out back in October attendance was understandably not as high as the peak of summer, good to catch up with those present, awesome food again. The pub anticipate being busy in the run up to Christmas, I have agreed to phone the number through the day before. Hence I cannot stress enough, please post if you can make it! If you cannot commit until nearer the date, please post as such in this thread, or send me a message / text. I absolutely do not want anyone to travel and not have enough seats at the table and find the pub cannot accommodate because they are rammed. 6:30pm onwards, any enthusiast welcome, not just VAG and / or Porsche! Usual suspects please post your interest, potential MK meet newbies please post below so we can look out and welcome you. The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN. Ye Olde Swan Newport Road Woughton on the Green Milton Keynes Buckinghamshire MK6 3BS 01908679489 The bit highlighted in red on the second map is the road through the pub - you can access from both ends. Congregate at the north end of the car park, the four spaces by the red arrow are the biggest for A8s + RS6s etc.
  3. Leasing for Dummies?

    Your neighbours will think you've been selling sweets to kids and teenagers!
  4. Leasing for Dummies?

    Wonder how that would work, if the turbo blows up at 3.5 years (for example), given that you are simply renting the car? Definitely a question that needs asking if you are going for a 4 year lease.
  5. Leasing for Dummies?

    Dumb ass question. Does a 4 year lease automatically come with a fourth years factory warranty? And if so, is this adding to the fourth year cost, meaning four year leases aren't any cheaper than three year leases?
  6. New pants please

    Doh, they fail to realise a T junction is over the brow!
  7. MK Meet - Weds 4th Oct

    Great to see y'all! Attendance understandably not as high as the peak of summer, good to catch up with those present, awesome food again. No pics - was overcast and getting dark at 6:30pm! Current plan - next meet Weds 6th Dec, then in 2018 resume meets again from April onwards monthly. Pub anticipate being busy Weds 6th Dec, and require the number the day before which is completely fair: I'll post Decembers thread well in advance, please post if you can make it, I don't want anyone to travel and not have enough seats at the table

  10. Wednesday 4th October, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our new home for the last year now: lovely outside garden area, cosy 16th century core now we are entering the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly great food! Great to see y'all last month, particularly great food and service we thought. They put us on a different table last month, still pretty much our own private room like the last 12 months, but an even nicer spot we thought, so we have asked for the same again next month. Number required before the night, hence the roll call below.... 6:30pm onwards, any enthusiast welcome, not just VAG and / or Porsche!

  12. The £1k mobile phone

    That's impressive! The batteries in the 6310 used to last for days. Great car phone!
  13. The £1k mobile phone

    Now that I do agree with, they are definitely seen as a fashion accessory, the latest thing to have, buying into the brand etc And I agree if I tried to 'work' on a Nokia 6 with its budget processor it would probably (certainly?) be useless. I'm either on work Lenovo or home Dell, so no need to 'work' on my phone Off topic, was having a clear out and found my 8210 and 8310 the other day!
  14. The £1k mobile phone

    £1000. No thanks. Some interesting comparisons here..... iPhone vs phone quarter of the price. The screen comparison is scary! https://www.cnet.com/uk/news/iphone-vs-cheap-android/ I'm currently debating downgrading to sim-only when my current two year contracts ends in November and buying a handset myself. Or just keeping my current one!
