  1. Car shampoo for jet wash lances?

    Yup, as Andy says, you are wasting your time with a snow foam lance if you're looking for a quick wash solution. Snow foaming a car increases washing time but makes it a lot less likely that you'll scratch it. I jet wash, snow foam, jet wash off, wash with the 2 bucket method, dry....and then wax every couple of weeks to keep the layers topped up. It ain't quick. However, I only snow foam if the car is particularly dirty.
  2. What could possibly go wrong?

    I think it is long overdue. I wouldn't be surprised to hear there have been a lot more accidents caused by new drivers (passed) on motorways than learner drivers will ever cause on them.
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    £404 for rears on a 420d sounds perfectly usual to me. I paid £432 for a pair of Dunlop SP Sport Maxx rears on my 520d (on 19" wheels which I suspect yours is too).

    Wait until you come to replace the rears on an M3..*. *although if they’re the Michelin Pilot SS or 4S tyres, they’re not bad by the looks of it. Black Circles says £257 each, fitted.

    I don't know what to say except... Riz drove a BMW M car and discovered what everyone else has been saying for 15 years*. *I'm delighted for you, Riz, a very wise and nice choice.

    It won't stop you buying another Golf R.... Or an RS3 (and they're a very nice car). But it won't be a BMW. Have you driven an M3, M2, etc?

    It says 9.01pm on the car clock. Are you being deliberately fecking stupid?
  8. Hi

    Have you seen the newest instalment in the Star Wars franchise? Return of the Spammer. Feck off.
  9. BMW M2 Competition

    You'll buy a Golf R. You know it. I know it. We all know it. The chances of you buying a BMW are the same as me shagging Liz Hurley tonight.

    I can't believe the myth about BMW's being 'scary' because of RWD is still out there. Complete crock of shite. You either know how to drive responsibly and how to drive at all, or you don't. There.
  11. RS3 - Saloon!

    Here's the thing, people look at the final price attained, then say "it was only £2,000 originally when he bought it 12 years ago, or whatever". Imagine that £2k car is now £30k. I wonder how much they've spent on it, each year (Ian mentioned it above) - the investment has running costs. Then, imagine what £2k well invested, with no running costs, in the right business or shares could be worth after 12 years. I still believe that, unless you're very, very shrewd and get huge pleasure from the ownership experience too, that when you factor in the annual costs - the return isn't anything like a lot of people think it looks like on face value.
  12. Electric cars. And tax?

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned something else. Disposal tax. That is a given with electric vehicles.
  13. RS3 - Saloon!

    I wouldn't be bothered by stuff like that. The benefit of hindsight is a wonderful thing. If anyone says they bought an M3 CSL back then in the knowledge that they were going to make a killing, I'd suggest they're making it up as they go along. There might be the odd person who made a shrewd decision, but they're few and far between. Cars as an investment are folly, unless you've got every other investment on the planet and money isn't something you ever have to give much thought to.
