  1. 2 perfect Escorts

    Beautiful cars, nice to see examples that are true to the original rather than tricked up versions.
  2. I have about 40+. 2 part, a base and separate top cover. All clean, no scratches or damage. UV resistant. They once housed part of my 1/18th discast model car collection but I now have a custom built display case and so they are no longer needed. On fleabay they are going for around £7-£9 each, I'm after £4.50 each, P&P depending on number but quite reasonable I'm sure.
  3. The Stamford Car Show

    You can't beat a decent Vanden Plas.
  4. iphone 4s help.

    No early buns I'm afraid Mac, all done. Thankyou. Now, about next week.
  5. iphone 4s help.

    I have an old iphone 4s, the SIM card is gone. However I have loads of pictures on the phone that I cannot download and remove from the phone. When I connect it to a PC it finds the iphone but no images. How can I get them off the phone ?
  6. Porsche Macan 2.0T

    What happened to it Chris ?
  7. iphone 4s help.

    No Porn (unfortunately), will try it on the Mac tonight and let you know. Failing that then its St Pauls next week and I'm buying.
  8. Home Security

    Afternoon, Planning for the BIG PROJECT, what sort of home security should I be considering (apart from a fecking big hungry hound), not thinking about door window sensors more just thinking about cameras and instant notifications of visitors (I recall Daz having a type of system like this some time ago), the nearest I can find to what I think I want is by Yale. Any suggestions or experience ?
  9. F1 Meets Claire Williams

    Always worth watching Claire Williams......
  10. We are replacing our current TV set up at home with a new TV with an internal freeview & freesat tuner. So far so good. 1. Can both run off a single normal co-axial into the rear of the telly with a digital aerial or do I require a dish as well ? 2. If not, how is the cabling configured. We have no intention of using a Sky box etc. Thanking you.
  11. Wrong bloody room as well........
  12. Wopps 918

    Is in Evo this month. B'stard.
  13. MkV Golf R32 - SOLD

    Car Sold to the first viewer on Saturday, he accepted an offer of £11600 for it
  14. MkV Golf R32 - SOLD

    The guy selling the car sits behind me and is not a regular visitor to TSN, his local dealer recommended he have the chains and DMF changed as a precaution, so he did. More than likely a bit of salesmanship by the dealer rather than being required. He has also asked that if any anyone has questions about the car then please call him direct. I'm gonna hit him later with joining TSN. Whilst I'm not a lover of the Mk V R32, this one is a gem and totally unmodified, so hopefully should find a home.
  15. For the Love of Cars

    One of the best shows, a beautiful car and a snip at £108k..... after a £40k restoration.
  16. VW to quit WRC 2016

    Another nail in the WRC coffin. http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motorsport-wrc/updated-volkswagen-quits-world-rally-championship-end-2016 Anybody watching the Wales WRC this week cannot help but be impressed with the skill and entertainment of the drivers and their cars. We just need Ford M-Sport to pick their game up, not amusing to have Hyundai rub their nose in the gravel, especially home gravel.
  17. Ross Brawn to succeed Bernie Ecclestone

    Thank fcuk Bernie is going - there is a God.
  18. F1 2016 Season

    My days of F1 watching are over (at least on the telly). Yesterdays Mexican race was hardly worthy was it. Lap after lap of watching messers Perez and Massa nose to tail was hardly edge of your seats stuff. Why Hamilton was not penalised for off roading at the first 2 corners and ending up 10 car lengths ahead by the third, no advantage there. Drivers whinging at the engineers, drivers whinging at each other. No decent shots of Claire Williams or Suzi Wollf either I lost the will after lap 28. Remind me - who won ?
  19. BMW M2

    Electric memory seats a must, good choice.
  20. Tada!!

    Tony the Tart. Lets hope you manage to get it above 60.
  21. For Gatwick we always use Maple Manor Valet parking, been using MM for some 10 years. Never had a problem.
  22. Lime Green TT-RS, anyone?

    Green is good.
  23. Test Drives

    Bored at home and fed up with Internet window shopping for cars, I gave my local'ash MB dealer a call, he has a GLA45 for sale. He is prepared to drop the car off (something of a 30 mile round trip) and collect 24hrs later. I explained about my left knee replacement operation and he was quite ok with me driving the car. Its only 4 and a half weeks since the operation and the hospital recommendation (guidelines !) are quite clear, only my surgeon can assess my ability to drive. This is all to do with my ability in completing an emergency stop. My final assessment is in 2 weeks time. The GLA45 is an Auto and any emergency stop would be with my right leg. My insurance company backs up what the hospital says, so I'm awaiting clarity from MB. I have no intention of driving any car until I get the ok from the hospital but it did strike me that MB are going the extra mile to accommodate a test drive, I'm impressed. Have I struck lucky with MB ? I can't imagine Audi being this accommodating.
  24. Top Gear s.23

    Just see this on the Beeb, what's the big shake up - Songs of Praise ?
  25. Top Gear s.23

    I enjoyed the 911R piece, MB is turning out to be the jewel in the TG crown, the rest of the show was painful, CE is just so not suited for TG, too shouty shouty, over bearing and, well - quite boring. Sabine did not work either, her Germanic mannerisms just didn't quite work, shame really as she could have contributed much more, she works for me..... Perhaps I'm too old but seeing week after week of cars going sideways on the track is pretty dull whether it be the NSX or the 911R - we need fantastic photography, awesome backdrops, the Mustang section did it well. Harris does his bits well, I just don't get RR but I can see his appeal to the teenies out there. The show does not need any fecking stars in any sort of car, kick Jordan into touch - what the feck does he contribute to the show. Top Gear needs to change, this new series underlines the fact, time for bold changes, a change of lanes (not direction) is required.
