    Thought i'd missed something,then i looked again at the picture.
  4. F1 2017

    What a Cnut Hamilton looks on that picture.
  5. Opinions on Virgin Media.

    Egged on by this thread I just called Sky and got the following, not the best,but better than I had. All channels, Sky Q 2tb with minibox. All for £53 pm with free installation and new dish. Still I have been with them for over 18 years .
  6. I bought a Bellroy minimal wallet 3 years ago, suits me fine as most of my transactions are done with my phone through Android pay. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bellroy-Leather-Very-Small-Wallet/dp/B00JZBOKJ2/ref=sr_1_13?s=luggage&ie=UTF8&qid=1504955975&sr=1-13&nodeID=11967999031&psd=1&keywords=minimal+wallets

    Took a nice trip from Derby to Stanmore and back.

    That is really good for such a large sized vehicle/engine.
  9. 420d xdrive mpg

    I'd much prefer to try it on your island, but it is easily done, many times a month. Certainly makes it easier in this car.
  10. The new TVR Griffith

    Well said, possibly the case for many enthusiasts.
  11. 420d xdrive mpg

    And another long day's drive.
  12. Pile up on the M65 in heavy fog

    Agree with every bit of the above. It seems no matter how safe you drive yourself, there will always be some cock who completely f**ks it up for you.

  15. 420d xdrive mpg

    I am absolutely amazed at this car, I was always a sceptic of BMWs, people always banging on about how wonderful they are etc. After only 2 or 3 weeks I was completely sold. The handling, the quality, the comfort, the connectivity, the software and now the fuel economy, all way better than I expected and way better than in anything I have owned/driven before.
  16. Audi Naming System

  17. CHAVMOBILE Spotting...

    Has that demolished skip in the background got something to do with this car, or is that where the car should be?
  18. Carwash Spots

    I would imagine he was going to collect either Sideshow Bob or Krusty. Nice Stag.
  19. CHAVMOBILE Spotting...

    Why did no one bid on it?

  21. Ferrari

    It really was,shame it was in Stoke really.

    Very good point.
  23. Volvo

    In the link Andy gives, there is this line " In fact, manufacturing an electric vehicle generates more carbon emissions than building a conventional car, mostly because of its battery, the Union of Concerned Scientists has found. ".
