    What will your next car be?

    I still have my dream of a C63 Wagon alive but ultimately think its more likely I end up in an S4 Avant, C43 Wagon or 340i Touring (if I can spec XDrive).

    Selling my R..What next?

    It'll be very difficult to replace the R as it's just such a capable car that gives you A LOT of bang for your buck. I'd be tempted by an RS3 or the new A45 when it comes along but ultimately you're getting a very similar preposition, just the next step up in power and luxury. For me I think it'll be best to switch to a different class of car rather than sticking with hot hatches. Something like that might be best for you also, so that you actually feel like you are in a different car.

    Selling my Golf buyer wants to pay cash

    I wouldn't do it personally. Short of the guy turning up and being 90 years old and having no concept of the internet, there is NO reason why they couldn't just do a bank transfer. When I sold my last car for 18k he transferred me the cash on his phone, I checked it on my laptop, I did the online DVLA notifier at the same time and 5 minutes later he was on his way.

    New Television

    On the one hand I really hope if I go to my TV and do that now it does speed it up because that would be great, but on the other hand I want it to fail so that I can say I haven't been a dumb arse living with a slow TV for a year... Update: Okay it turns out I hadn't ever enabled youview so it is what it is.

    New Television

    I'll second this. I have the 55" version of the previous model and it's a great TV. The ONLY negative I can give it is that it's operating system is a bit sluggish in comparison to some of its rivals.

    Sad story, but am I missing something here?

    Apologies, my wording towards the end should of read "that I become bothered." As in this story doesn't really effect/bother me as much as the ones involving innocent by-standers/victims.

    Rear Main Seal

    A buddy of mine has a mk7 GTI, 2 years old with less than 20k miles and his rear main seal has started leaking (very very small leak). Is this a common problem for the mk7/mk7.5 2.0tsi engine? Is it something we should all keep an eye out for?

    Sad story, but am I missing something here?

    As sad as someone young using their life is, as long as they keep it gang on gang I don't really care. It's when it spills over and starts effecting innocents that haven't chosen to take that path that I'll be bothered.

    Sad story, but am I missing something here?

    I remember when a relative of mine died he was referred to as a "lovable rouge". No, he was a c*nt who stole from innocent people, beat up women and assaulted a police officer. Edit - Got beat to it by the above poster for pictures. He also "supposedly" had been excluded from school and referred to himself as a "trapper boy" which is a drug courier.

    Lego GT3

    About halfway through.

    Youtube videos

    Agreed. I think he pretty much said it in one of his videos but the reason I like him the most is he isn't pretending to be a pro. He is quite happy to just give shit a try and if he screws up he'll admit it and talk about the thought process and how he is going to fix it. All good fun.

    B is for build is about halfway through a GT-R rebuild if anyone is interested. https://www.youtube.com/embed/VjYkxKupL9I

    Youtube videos

    Agreed. I couldn't bring myself to watch Wheeler Dealers simply because of Mike Brewer. On a side note, how do you embed the youtube videos?

    Performance screen getting stuck on oil temp

    So mine behaves slightly different but does do something similar. If i start the car with the performance gauges up the oil temp dial doesn't move unless I change the screen and go back again. The temperature number in the middle will come up at 50 and rise to the normal temp, but the pointer around the outside stays glued to the bottom as if its still below 50. If I start in any other screen and move to the performance gauges, even if I haven't set off yet, the problem doesn't happen.

    Gutted, angry but stunned at lack of damage

    Sorry to hear about this and glad everyone is okay (for the most part). As Scotty said, it's the attitude of some of these people that bothers me the most. There really does seem to be a lack of respect from certain road users for the level of damage a car can do. You see people like it all the time, just driving around in the world of their own, completely unaware of anything around them and how a split seconds lapse of concentration can end up ending someone's life. I'd be sure to take her to the cleaners and ensure EVERYTHING, from vets bills to panto tickets is reclaimed.
