  1. RS3 - Saloon!

    Yeah, I know, not to everyone's tastes, but I have always prefered saloons. And I think the A3 saloon is a better looking car than the hatch. This makes the RS3 more desirable for me. RS3 Saloon!
  2. RS3 - Saloon!

    Bloody hell!!!
  3. New pants please

    What the hell happened to make him lose control of the bike?
  4. RS3 - Saloon!

    £43k? WTF?
  5. Electric cars. And tax?

    We are not citizens of Brunei. A disposal tax would limit the second hand car price, but then again, they won't care as long as it is paid. Would certainly limit the desirability in the market. Car companies will need to do something about the disposal of. Also, city councils might bring in more congestion charging zones and/or no private vehicle zones and they will probably charge all vehicles entering them depending upon the hours. The irony being they'll allow busses, coaches, taxis and delivery vehicles in - which are usually the most polluting.
  6. My future hearse.

    For when I go see Satan Would need to be loud though.
  7. RS3 - Saloon!

    But would you have kept it long enough for appreciation or did they shoot up straight away?
  8. F1's 'Halo' cockpit is coming in 2017

    You never know where inspiration will co e from next.
  9. RS3 - Saloon!

    That is how I approached my S8 purchase. No regrets.
  10. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    And getting bigger at each turn. Nothing 'mini' about them. I am sure Sir Ignossi (so) is turning in his grave at the size of the b4stard things. You need a 4 door at least 3 series size of bigger.
  11. New pants please

    Look at the wings on some of them, shaking!!! Look at the angles when they touch down!!! My rosairy beads would be rosairy washers by the time some of them landed....
  12. Post a pic of your car

    Stunning colour Mr Thorburn!!! Quite like the Evora. Good choice!
  13. A8 D3 Rear Parking Sensor Fault

    Hi... have you cleared the faults? Do they reappear? Also, another thing to try is to wipe and clean everything around the sensors. However, the fault makes it sound like a power supply issue rather than individual faults. See if you can find the fuse for the sensors, check the wiring too and also, in the boot, on the near side of the car as you look into the boot, remove the panel where the sat navs is, and you will see the Parking Sensor module on the rear wing. Reseat the three?? cables that plug into it.
  14. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    3 miles a day sounds like a decent engined petrol job is the order of the day... Either a Straight 6 or a V6/8. Plenty of everything around for that money. I wouldn't bother with a diesel with that daily use.
  15. SPOTY 2017

    Do you think Froome is in with a shout? Better the news is out now than after the results. With his doubtful salbutamol blood levels for his Asthma on the Spanish Tour... I am surprised how many sports people have Asthma.
  16. I think I might have finally trained YouTube?

    They knew you would give up before them. Don't suppose it will pull a trailer as easily as the Cayenne.....
  17. Audi A8 tyre size issue

    You might be better off changing the wheels to 19". Apparently, that is the best compromise between ride and 'looks'. Also, check if the previous owner has lowered the car via the air suspension. As it can be lowered by upto 20 mm I think on all settings. You will need the diagnostics tool for it though. If you have normal Audi 19" wheels on the car, the tyres become 255/45 19 or 245/40 19 I think? My S8 runs on 265/35 20 but has a slightly different suspension geometry to the non S models. As a result the ride is great in auto.
  18. New Wheels and Tyres, wrong size warning!!

    Why such a change?
  19. On the A1 today, I saw.....

    An RS6 new one. Which was nice. However, it was being followed by a red and white Porsche on Arab plates. The rear wings were red and the centre section was white. I looked at it and thought WTF sort of Porsche is that, until I noticed the massive high exhausts mounted high behind the drivers.... oh, that'll be 918 then. Shame it was just cruising. But, looked mighty fine!! No pics, sorry!
  20. WTF a decked Allegro

    I think a fast lead suppository would work best....
  21. 0-60 in 1.9 secs

    Can't be bothered to read the blurb, but how long to charge the car up? does it come with free neck braces?
  22. As impressive as it is, the car sounds very agricultural...... at all speeds. Love the slow build up, no need to burn rubber on a small runway to get close. They have big long roads out there!
  23. 'unauthorised' itunes app purchases

    I get the impression they are probably used to it and have to respond. Much like the Euro roaming charges when people were caught out and watchdog type people got involved. Well done!!
  24. Injection prices

    My eldest is off to Thailand in January. Does anyone know the prices of typical injections she'll need? As Boots have her booked in, but won't tell her how much they are????? Until her consultation. She can leave if they are an extionate amount, but she might as well be prepared. Thanks!
  25. Injection prices

    Trying to book in is a bloody awful affair.
