Re: Anyone know this car? - v1.1

It'll be hard to bite into the stranglehold that HPI have, but you'll only need a tiny percentage of their business. The extra data does add another element. I'm sure everyone buying a write off would want to see previous damage. I do think you're on to a good business. I also think you're going to ...

Re: Anyone know this car? - v1.1

What will be the fee for checking? Is there any guarantees for the information you supply like HPI offer? As I've said before I think it's a great thing. I doubt I would buy a write off, but the stuff you were digging up was fun/concerning to see. I did use Cazana a lot for fun. It's now been tied d...

Re: M135i - First impressions after 250 miles

Mlites are really good real world cars. They do everything well. They have all the modern toys and idrive is the best infortainment system on the market. The Z4C is a lot harder to live with everyday. You've lost all refinement and modern mod cons. It is a better car to drive and looks better. The Z...

Re: Any way to check if a car is an ex demo?

The law change on previous owners would put me off any new car now. The V5 doesn't even show previous owners now. This annoys me. I was in Peter Vardy the other day and they appeared to be open that they had a lot of Corsas that were previously rental cars. They put a sticker in the window to say w...

Re: M140i Stolen in Bolton - UPDATED - Car Found

Hopefully the car is good. If the car is ok the insurance company will carry out the minimum repairs and return it.

Re: 1st service

I've tried to book a 1st service only to be told "we're fully booked until 12th January" - over 5 weeks away - is this sort of waiting time par for the course? That's unreasonable even taking into account the holiday period. Usually I find lead times about 2 weeks, but if it's an emergency, or I do...

Re: M2C Supertest w comparison figures to M2

Amazed that the little manual Alfa easily out dragged m2c DCT and lotus..... Stats would indicate it wouldn’t stand a chance.... There is no way that 4C is stock. Not even debatable since it is miles faster than other tests. The Lotus driver made a mess of every single gear change. There's a huge p...

Re: Will values recover?

Indeed. When you see M2s outside newbuild 3 bed semis, you know PCP allows people to buy way above their normal station in life. Really??? How have you come to this conclusion?? Very simple. It's highly unlikely that someone living in a mortgaged £200k semi will have £60k cash or £1500 A month to t...

Re: UK Dash Cameras - subscribed?

Someone (can’t remember who) summed up the UK driver most succinctly - We don’t like being overtaken. Nailed it. I hate it to admit it but it’s true (certainly in my case). Will anyone else admit this? It's amazing how aggressive people get in their little metal bubble. It's comical seeing the thin...

Re: Will values recover?

PCP deals have killed the car market. Nobody owns their car and it has given dealers total control. The value of value cars has been bumped, yet nobody can afford to buy without finance. I’m sure there will be a correction in years to come.. It has to happen. With so many years of record new cars s...

Re: UK Dash Cameras - subscribed?

Fair play for having the balls to come back and say that.

Honestly the best thing to do on the roads is rise above confrontation and not get involved. Use the middle pedal before the horn. You only get yourself would up.

Hazard perception is the best defence.

Re: M2C Supertest w comparison figures to M2

Excellent video, thanks for the link. Maybe I should clarify the first post, the article states that in their tests the M2 was quicker in elasticity acceleration only: 60-100km/h in fifth gear: M2 4.4s M2C 5.2s 80-120km/h in top gear: M2 7.3s M2C 10.3s To be fair in a real race you aren't going to ...

Re: 140i ... rather quick isn't it

I had a play with a facelift (400hp?) RS3 the other day, surprisingly not much in it at all from a roll. I find that hard to believe. The acceleration figures of the new RS3 are astonishing for 400bhp. Even ignoring the gap to 60mph the gap to 100mph gets even bigger. Don't look at how they respond...
