Takata Airbag recall

Recently had a safety recall on the Legacy. Looking further at the recall it’s huge and affects loads of manufacturers. Good article here that lists the affected manufacturers and models. https://www.cars.com/articles/is-your-car-part-of-the-takata-airbag-recall-1420680509675/ The scale of the recal...

Re: Dreaded Clutch Problem (Sport350)

So got home atthe start of the week and managed to take my exige out for a spin. Unfortunately selecting 1st and 2nd was nigh on impossible until it was hot so looks like I have similar/same issue. Watching holding my breath for the verdict from Craig with yours Ross. Not sure wether to give Hayton...

Re: Mobile Phones for kids?

While I disagree Marshall, I'm interested in your reasoning. At this point the child in question is six months away from senior school and this brings a number of reasons to get connected. For instance they need to navigate home by themselves so being able to phone for pickups or other reasons is se...

Re: Watch lovers?

Have to say that I'm really enjoying the quick release spring bars. Had a look and they are available on some of the straps on that site. Highly recommended to enable fast easy change should the mood or occasion take you. :)

Re: Mobile Phones for kids?

That's the scary thing I reckon. But nothing is going to stop that. It happened in our day too, but maybe not as readily. Well in the end I went for a contract that's attached to my existing account. It can be set not to exceed data limits etc and I can manage through my account. I got an Android sm...

Re: Mobile Phones for kids?

Thanks Ross. From what I can see and other feedback you can go either PAYG or Contract and achieve similar control on data. Going to speak to a few operators further but this seems achievable and pretty standard. The hard bit is the OS. Android provide very little support for managing phones like th...

Mobile Phones for kids?

Whats the SE collective wisdom on managing phones for children? I want to: - control data usage and stop if breaching limits - monitor contacts - Control app usage. - ensure they can phone in an emergency if needed How much is this done through the Carrier and how much through the OS. Apps obviously...

Re: Latest Tax Grab by SNP/Greens (Council tax)

1% is far too big swing to be deliverable. Council tax should be based on service consumption. Bigger houses should pay more of course but value has bugger all to do with that. Judging house value as ability to pay higher tax is errant.
