  1. Using basic fag packet maths, virtually all new cars loose 40-50% of their value in the first 3 years.. Some are worse than others, remember the VW Phaeton anyone ?? Unless you’re buying something like a 911 gt2 / La Ferrari / Vulcan etc and leaving it in a garage for a few years, you’re going to loose money, not all great cars make money, Alfa 4C and 8C are rubbish but they still have a premium from when new, if you buy a car new, you have the peace of mind that you know how it’s been treated, you’ve got a warranty and you have the smug factor of owning a new car.. if you buy used, you’ve saved a shed load of cash, but you can’t be sure if it’s history.. pays your money, makes your choice Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. There’s lots of old WW2 disused airbases in Suffolk.. I was born in Eye and know there’s one there, parts of it is used as an industrial site, but I know some of the runways and taxiways are still there. No idea what condition they’re in tho, but not to far to go and have a look one weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Keep your fingers crossed, a friend of my wife’s is mad about classic Mini’s, he has 6-7 of them and keeps them in a lock up. 2 years ago he had his Mini pick up truck stolen from the lock up. The insurance paid out. However around 4 months ago the police raided a local ‘traveller’ site. Found the Mini pick up, returned it to the owner who bought it back from the insurance company Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Well as I work for Honda I’m having to work out a future job fairly soon. So passed my medical for a PCV and HGV license today, sent the forms off, so hopefully start lessons soon. The doctor looked at my license and said he’d never seen one like it.. paper license, feel old now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Grr.. mines gone too, booked in on Friday, Inchscape Swindon seem to know about the fault, even though the car drives fine, get it sorted while VW are paying Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ve bought a RaceChip tuning box off of eBay, everything looks good with it, have been looking through instructions etc, looks the same as DTUK set up, However... there’s no power supply to the box itself, looked online etc etc, Strange I think, anyone know where it’ll pick up the power from, I know the DT box connects to the battery Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi all, 2016 discover media, since the car was serviced 2 weeks ago, the radio sometimes refuses to come on, the parking sensors work on screen but no other display or radio operation, comes back to life when I reset the system, it’s done it about 10 times in last two weeks, I’ve booked it into VW as under warranty, but also the battery is low as stop start doesn’t work, not that I’m complaining. Anyone else had similar ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Has anyone fitted the Inbay wireless charge unit in their car ? Trying to find out if it matters being a right hand drive car. Not sure if the USB input in the cubby stays the same for R/H and L/H Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Mine does this too, I keep the car in the garage, I find it quite comical to sit and listen to all the strange noises the Golf makes after you turn it off, from the turbo timer cooling, weird sounds from the engine to the noises coming from the petrol tank Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Promise that the horse wasn’t driving the lorry Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I may very well be talking rubbish but I thought Yokohama and Bridgestone were the same company Mines got Bridgestone from the factory, they’ve only got 4mm on the front so looking forward to ditching them Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Mines standard, I was coming back from the FoS and got caught behind a couple of horse boxes, I had the car set in comfort, pulled the gear stick back for sport and gave it some beans to overtake It hit the Rev limiter in 2nd and 3rd which was rather an unpleasant surprise whilst on the wrong side of the road Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Purely for warranty purposes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Finally got my new watch today Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’ve just taken off my pedal box as car is going in for its 2nd service on Christmas Eve.. Will I have to re teach the throttle when I fit it back on or will it remember from when I first installed it ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
