    Lol... The only other person I know with a chimp sidekick was in an anime when growing up, and then in a Warchowski kids movie... GO SPEED RACER, GO!
  2. New pants please

    I'm sure Mr Plod would be very interested in that...

    I shudder to think what the total cost of all this tinkering is going to be once you are (finally) done...

  6. Hi Rachel,

    Haven't been here on Tyresmoke for a long time!

    My R32 was put onto carsales this morning and sold by midday! $25k

    Haven't been using it much for a while and decided to release it rather than have it fail in the garage. Driving mostly electric these days and a 4wd for outback trips.

    You still have the R32?

      Hi stranger!

      I sold the R32 in 2011 and replaced it with an R36 wagon which I kept till late 2014 when it got traded in on a ML500.  The weekend toys went through a few iterations - the current one (which I have kept now for over 4 years!) is one of the last of the 6.2l V8 C63 Coupes.

      So I am a Merc/AMG driver now - which is fine given all my white hair.  :-)

      What electric thingy did you get yourself?


  7. RS3 - Saloon!

    Stop faffing around and just go buy one already...
  8. Very nice, and so much easier on the eye than the new one.
  9. Post a pic of your car

    That looks just like the one I had! You have (had?) good taste sir.
  10. Post a pic of your car

    That looks the part in that colour! Enjoy every mile with a smile and make sure you always drive it on its door handles.
  11. Photo sync iOS and android

    Dropbox is my toy of choice for photos... New versions of the app for mobile devices even have a photo category as distinct from files.

    that was... different
  13. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Or the microwave (Freezer will kill the battery in the key)... or wrap in foil and put in a metal cake tin... or you can actually buy "Faraday" bags to put things in like phones (so you can't be tracked, or it can't blab) and keys too... The Internet is an amazing place - you even have a UK based manufacturer: http://faradaybag.com/ ...and an Oz shop: https://www.faradaybags.com.au/shop

    What's in the driveway today?
  15. 0-60 in 1.9 secs

    It has some impressive claims made about it. I like how you can test drive one after you put a stupidly big ($50K) deposit on it...
