Re: Tyre vandalism?

It will likely just be you've run over it. One nail in one tyre doesn't suggest vandalism to me. I've had a few screws over the years.

If someone really wants to upset you they screw it into the sidewalls. It does look a bit too the edge for repair anyway.

Re: Is this guy thick or to be admired??

Registration plate in the window is the universal sign for idiot driver. There is going to be a time where the police pick these videos and hit these people. No secret over his identity either. Tricolore have an absolutely shocking reputation. They were ripped to bits on a weekly basis on the A45 f...

Re: Is this guy thick or to be admired??

Like i said you role your own dice of such risk, but don't tell the world and his dog what you have done though... I've said for a while I expect the finance companies to start clamping down on tuned cars. The market is slowing and they are getting too many cars back often struggling for GFMV. Look...

Re: 11 days in...

How fast do people actually drive on the road? On the internet everyone needs 400bhp+ drives to the cars' limit and really needs 4wd for wet weather performance. On the road I've only ever seen a handful of cars driven in such a manner, and when they are witnessed driving in such a manner they are r...

Re: M2 service costs

How much are people finding the service costs on the M2? Looking at a car that has a 5 year service plan on it until 2021, but also looking at one that doesn't. Oil and that I imagine will be the same as my 135i, just when it comes to big stuff like brakes and tyres another matter. Income is enough...

Re: Been Run into!

Do you also maybe think that your accident management claims history is putting your insurance premium up? I see by your previous posts you pay £800 to insure your Mlite. At 41 that must be one of the most expensive on the site. That's with full NCB too(protected obviously). :shock: It is what it i...

Re: Anyone know this car?

Disgraceful that eBay won’t act and are not interested! Perhaps trading standards and bbc watchdog would like to know. It would also be great if there was a way of contacting the new owners to give them the good news so they are informed and can take legal action. Great service you are offering Arn...

Re: Shadow edition, is it worth it?

Hi, I’m looking at changing my Audi TT to a 140i, as I need a little more space, looking at a couple of used cars, one with the shadow edition, one without. Is it worth the extra? I know it gives me a better set of speakers. The better speaker being the Harmon Kardon system? This is an option on th...

Re: Been Run into!

Why's it terrible? I pay insurance like everyone else... so why do I want the hassle when it's someone else fault - have used Accident Exchange a few times on non-fault claims and they have been thoroughly professional and never once asked me to "inflate" a claim. I worked hard for my car.. and onl...

Re: Interesting tussle with a V8 M3

The M3 V8 coupe has very similar performance figures. As said the extra weight of the convertible would hinder it badly. They aren't 415bhp quick. Youve not driven one on track then? They are very much 415hp quick, you just have to work them hard to get the performance. Similarly the chassis is mil...

Re: Been Run into!

it be a non-fault claim.. use accident exchange and dont go through your insurance. you will have to declare a non-fault to them.. but depending on ur history/age/record it doesn't make much difference to policy costs.. few quid extra and alot less hassle. Don't follow this advice. There is no reas...
