  1. The £1k mobile phone

    I guess how different is that than them using your thumb?!? I went of the 8+ for other reason and not money and its been great. The guy that sits opposite me at work has FaceID fail several times a day or the clock on the lock screen doesn't appear and the only way to get it back is to re-start it. He has reset it twice and still has problems. But like others if you have an X use FaceID you might as well have just got an 8 without using it you mad man.
  2. Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team

    A perfect reliability match.
  3. Couple of New Motorsport movies out

    They should be good for a watch cheers.
  4. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Ours are in the middle of the house 12+ft and several walls away in every direction from the outside of the house so I assume that will do the job. You have to be right on top of the car for it to work with the BMW so I'm assuming that should be sufficient.
  5. "Relay Crime" reality?

    I don't on ours but the keys have been mover back into the house more. They are already on the other side of a porch area thats over a 1.5mtrs but will move them further. Having a lock on the car like a crock lock would feel like I was driving my first car again, no thanks.
  6. F1 2018 Drivers list

    A good young couple of drives nice to see from Toro Rosso. Will be interesting to see how Kubica does if he does indeed sign for Williams.
  7. Leasing for Dummies?

    Excellent, have fun. Trying to get the wife to look at a new car but we never seem to have any time. Might get an X1 or Tiguan potentially depending no the deals.
  8. Leasing for Dummies?

  9. Leasing for Dummies?

    So come one what model, spec / colour have you got where is the config data pictures. This is like amateur our, goodness me.
  10. Gap insurance for purchase cars? What else?

    I've used Ala in the past but never needed to claim. Cheaper than a main dealer but the same product or better cover. Never bothered with the rest or any other cover personally didn't see the point.
  11. Felipe Massa retiring from Formula 1

    Probably best, a good solid driver that very nearly won a championship but not quite.
  12. F1 2017

    Agreed its mental its like they have never watched the sport. Mercedes will continue to be very strong, might he get another, maybe but nothing is a dead cert in F1 or even close. Anyway Ferrari is leaving F1, looks like they are worried they won't be able to win try to win without £200million more than any other team to spend..
  13. Leasing for Dummies?

    From what I've seen its all about grabbing the good deals and being flexible. A few at work are leasing but mostly average cars, a full spec Astra Elite for £140 a month and only 2 or 3 months up front as an example. He has a good motor with lots of toys for little outlay, but some that just went for the good deal and a car that gets him from A-B. Again Merc have done some great lease deals recently but they all tend to be stock deals mostly. Business vs Personal I will leave to others to comment, business leases for higher end cars tend to be much better but again not always. Nearly all deals are very mileage sensitive and higher end cars often want 5 or 6 months up front pushing if its value for money or not. Keep an eye out for deals would be my view if thats the way you want to go.
  14. Injection prices

    We got all our stuff at the GP when we went to the Far East have things changed?!?
  15. The Caterham Build
