Does it make the overtaking any more frequent?!
Well, it looks like the projector crops off 75% of the car :lol:

Re: Tut the Legend

:( Fitting tribute with the site image, the view of that car that most of us will remember, the back! Such sad news though, and condolences to his family. Always loved reading his stories on here, and, like many, remember paxing with him at KH and being amazed at what was possible in these little ca...

Re: Where are you getting your tyres from?

I changed from T1-R to Yoko AD08R a few years back too and continue to be very impressed with them. The T1-R was absolutely perfect when a full set was a touch over 200 quid, but at near AD08R prices I wouldn't touch them now personally. I bought my last set from Blackcircles, basically because they...

Re: Sat Nav chat

I'll check out Waze and Google Maps then. I've used Google Maps on occasions when I don't have a nav with me, but always with a data connection, not offline. I don't really want to have a sim for the device, probably should have mentioned that, as I'd rather not use my actual phone, if for no other ...

Sat Nav chat

So... As per the other thread, I bought a Mini. The spec I was aiming for included Nav, but due to me wanting the JCW pack (nicer looking imo bumpers, spoiler, wheels, steering wheel...) I ended up compromising and getting one without. Not to worry I use my old Satnav in the other cars too, but old ...

Re: S1 Elise Motorsport replica project

Project is coming along nicely, blue with the gold wheels will look pretty special too :) 20 valve engine? Noice. Didn't Audi use a 20v badge for a while? Seems familiar! My old 2001 Leon Cupra was badged '20VT' on the back. Years before that, we had a 96 1.8 A4 (non turbo) with '5V' on the engine c...

Re: Newbie - Indecisive!

Welcome along.

Sounds like Simon's car in classifieds is very light what you're looking for, relatively close to Abs too in the grander scheme of things..

Happy car purchasing :)

Re: S1 Elise bits - quick update

...yes, that's another thought. In true style... I'm continuing my wheel addiction, and have a set for the Mini on the way (delivery miles wheels and tyres with a manufacture date of June 18, for the cost of 4 new tyres - though i had to buy TPMS valves and will have to get them fitted still). The s...

Re: Another new toy thread - I mean sensible family car...

That looks ouchy for the tourist!! Eeek!! Watching it happen was enough for me! She was in a better state than I was after it, watching it happen, then coming to my senses took about 15 seconds, then I rushed out of my car to help get her out. Standing by a car balancing on it's passenger side was ...

Re: Another new toy thread - I mean sensible family car...

I'd have a Gen 2 Clubman again in a heartbeat. Albeit S or Works for some punch. Chassis is too good for just Cooper spec engine [emoji106] I prefer the look of the Gen 2, looks smaller, and the lines are a bit cleaner - less of a caricatured appearance, but the Clubman didn't seem to quite do it s...

Re: S1 Elise bits - quick update

Well done. Always nice to have a bit of a clear out. I'm also afflicted with the hoarding disease as Erica keeps reminding me. Funny you should mention wheels, they seem to be my weak spot. I have 3 sets for the Elise (despite having the Rotas on for the last 6 or 7 years) 2 Classic Mini sets (despi...

Another new toy thread - I mean sensible family car...

So, 6 years ago, I bought an Alfa 159. I always wanted and Alfa, and despite it just being Erica and I (at that time) a big diesel saloon seemed a good choice. It served us well, with annual trips to London to visit her family, serving as our wedding car, ribbons and all, daily hack, and looking stu...
