Re: Winter tyres. Discuss.

All right smarty pants [emoji12] LOL. High five for you [emoji1588] I thought it must be too good to be true to find a genuine ALL season tyre. Clearly they must be a compromise - but for the family barge, we don’t need cutting edge performance. We need safety and dependability etc. Add to this tha...

Re: Winter tyres. Discuss.

Yes. All seasons. Clue’s in the name of the tyre. [emoji6] They are on the Octy [emoji1303] Acid test = a local uphill junction where fast exit needed due to nearby blind bend. On the OEM tyre (Pilot Sport I think) it’s wheelspin all the way [emoji849]. Even for Lisa. On the CCs - they just grip. To...

Re: Walkie Talkies

I can confirm that I have not bought a pair of these on your recommendation. And that I will not be trialling them for car to car comms in support of a forthcoming Big Road Trip.

Thanks Sanj!

I've just booked Anglesey. Only doing that one though.

GPS Gill is coming too.

Make sure your full beams are working.

Re: Spa double header March/April

Hmm

I have one of many other London schleps that would fit that mid March one. It doesn’t feel so much of a hike when you’re already that close to Calais [emoji41]

Re: 1,000 mile service

If you’re going as far as Carlisle already, I’d look into other Lotus dealerships with stronger reps.

Re: Leven car company Administration

In light of the rapidly increasing profile of climate issues, I now think new car sales are going to tank until EV gains critical mass.

So this may be the first of many collapses, sadly.

Airlines are next (witness Flybe...)
