  1. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    The Mini would be a Clubman but looks like it would need to be the newer shape which is a larger, but then out of budget. As mentioned earlier it's do I get a fun car now for it to be replaced or a more family oriented car and stick with that, I know the 3 series are a good candidate more so when in Touring form.
  2. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    Tried a Mini and whilst it was very good, no one could sit behind me, not even a small child. So currently looking at options again, has anyone got any experience with the Octavia VRs?
  3. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    Thanks, I would like something fun but think the fact its not going to be doing a good journey each day defeats the purpose, like a Mini Clubman cooper s, I was thinking full electric as an option but they are still quite pricey.
  4. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    I would have one of them, just that it would be less than 3 miles a day and the S Max is already leggy, over 150k so would like something a little fresher.. Have been looking at a VW Passat or Merc C220 Estate....
  5. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    There is only 3 us and that will grow to 4 max, but the car is a diesel and will only be going down the road, max 2miles each way each day
  6. Hello All, Long time, hope everyone is well. My wife is going to be changes jobs soon and so with us having 2 cars this will then go down to one. I don't need a car as I use my cycle to commute to work each day. So we have a S Max and a Fiat 500 with the S Max on the cards to go first and then the 500 which will be half way through payment in April. Now looking for a replacement, do we go the short term fun runner or think more long term and get something that will allow our family to grow in the next few years. We had a Signum a few years ago and was impressed with that and liked what it had to offer, but was wondering if there is anything like this on the market today, can be 2nd hand and have thought about getting another Signum too. Just wondering peoples opinions, would only like to go to a max of £8k. Thanks
  7. Hi, Missus got a new phone and doesn't want it as she has a phone she prefers already. So have this iPhone 5 Black 16gb locked to O2 still in the box sealed etc. £350 posted RMSD Thanks
  8. I am not paying, so will see how we go!
  9. Thanks for the link Mac, I am waiting for the Elitepad from HP to come this week. Which is more business related and I am getting the dock and jacket etc with it.
  10. What classic?

    Thanks for the replies! Some interesting suggestions there, we had been thinking of a Merc 280 SL but they are a few more pennies these days, E30 M3 - he has the 968 CS which is similar. Thinking more wafting about.. with out being garish.
  11. BT Vision and Broadband

    Which is another reason I didn't go with them at the time and sent everything back, as the transmitter at the time hadn't been upgraded to Freeview!
  12. BT Vision and Broadband

    I had one of the early Vision boxes, years ago and it was pants, but I think they have moved in the right direction now! Only thing I would see is make sure that the channels you get are what you want, just done the switch from Sky to Virgin but had to check the channels first, a lot of the ones we had on Sky we didn't watch anyway.
  13. What classic?

    Ok, a friend of mine has £30k to spend on a classic, now the car must comply to the following. More than 5 Cylinders Be able to cruise nicely for long journeys Not a out and out sports car, has a 968 for that. Was thinking tax exempt but then the costs of these cars is very high. So what do you think is out there? I was thinking of a UR Quattro which is kind of a sports car.
  14. Smart Phone of the Moment??

    This is the reason that I would like to move away from Android, being in a IT I can't leave things alone for too long the iPhone was one phone I just left as I didn't see the reason to Jailbreak it etc. For some reason with the S3 I felt the need to do it and then install a custom ROM. Just because I can. I have my phone through work and look after the contract also, so when an opportunity to change comes around I like to try it, of course everyone's opinion is different etc, but we have had to send back a huge amount of phones (iPhone's) due to them failing in some way or another, compared to the Blackberry's we had it was around 90% failure. Granted some of that was due to people dropping them, but the cost of the BES was a key factor in moving away from Blackberry. My wife has had issues with app's that she has downloaded to her phone and has random apps appear, I have since cleared this but yes it is annoying and would appear that Google Play doesn't have the checks that Apple's App store does. But the other issues is the availability of app's, I have only recently been able to get the Santander app on my Android OS device in the last month, Apple by comparison its been over a year! That does annoy me but then I have gotten used to it, so I am willing to take the plunge another different Phone OS.. Which is why in this day and age of having multiple devices running different OS's that I would like just one common platform, with the new tablet on the way which will be running Windows 8 Pro, a desktop that could run the same, so why not have the phone aswell!
