    Annual mileage?

    I have done 26k in 2years 2 months in the R. Mine is my daily driver. My wife has done 29k in her car in 7 years! I don’t do remotely near the amount of mileage I used to do though. I used to cover 50-60k a year. But since finally getting my own way in where I work (forces) I only work 10 miles from home opposed to 400.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Do the sequence as mentioned several times above but make sure 1 - the brake pedal is firmly pressed 2 - press the accelerator hard and fast (with brake still pressed). Revs will go higher than you have been experiencing. If you are a fanny with the gas pedal it will assume you are a fanny and only do a half arsed launch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. First test was in a 1.3 Suzuki swift mk1, it used to rev its tits off and for it to go anywhere it had to be sat screaming it’s head off above 4000rpm. Second test was in a Fiat Punto 1.2 which didn’t have power steering and 4 speed I think? my instructor had his Suzuki swift (above) written off a week before my test (not by me I’ll add!) and my first lesson was on test day and first time driving a non power steering car, it felt so heavy on the steering!

  4. No need to panic, all is normal it can be insanely tight, just give it a good pull. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. From what I have heard about the cars that have had ghost bypassed it was because of rogue installers who fell out with autowatch for whatever reason. Like that guy who posted a video online of repeatedly pressing the start button etc. I have the same thoughts about the fob for pandora too as I am pretty good at misplacing things like that. I have ghost and was thinking of having pandora too but autowatch have/are releasing an upgrade package to allow ghost to have similar features to pandora so I read somewhere.

  6. 1.28.9 for Momentum and 1.21.9 for normal here in Telford! Momentum was 1.21.9 a month ago Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Nextbase do a hardwire fitting kit that piggy backs into your fuse box. Takes all of 10 mins to fit including hiding wires. As long as you piggy back it into an ignition live fuse it will turn on and off when you turn the ignition on or off and therefore won’t drain the battery. Absolute doddle to fit.

  8. Ghost is a no brainer in my opinion as a full wheel disklock. Regardless of whether you live in a theft hotspot or not, these cars don’t just get nicked from your house, it can be anywhere you go. Nextbase seem to be the best dashcams, although mine is a pain in the arse as it doesn’t overwrite old files and just stops recording once the card is full. Think it’s because it’s a cheap sd card. I just have to remember to format the card once a week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Haha that’s funny! Like you say better to have a dirty boot than 3 or more points! I’m not sure he would have been so lenient if I had gone in all guns blazing saying he was goading me to race off or not though. Prob would of done me instead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. A similar thing happened to me years ago in my Mk 2 16v gti. I was on some back roads in Lincolnshire late on a Tuesday evening heading back home after watching Scunny Utd play a home game and I knew these roads like the back of my hand, but this particular evening I was just in a chill out mode and driving fairly conservatively. I was driving with my then girlfriend in the car too, who incidentally had been caught speeding only a week earlier; of which I had been taking the pi55 out of her all week. Looking in my rear view mirror I noticed a car in the distance making up ground on me very quickly. It caught me up and literally sat on my rear bumper so close I could barely see its headlights. I was thinking to myself..... I can’t be arsed to race, just ignore it, they will pass once bored. Nope they didn’t pass. A few mins later I thought f*ck it, I’ll just drop him as we go through this twisty apart of the route home. Bang! Foot flat to the floor, the gti burst into life but this guy behind was still on me like glue..... I thought blooming eck he’s doing well to stay with me here...... Then on went the blue lights and sirens. [emoji2357]. That’s why they stuck with me through that section. I pulled over, the missis was pissing herself and well chuffed that all the goading I had done to her was now on the other foot. I got out and went for a chat and seat in the unmarked police car. After about 10 mins of him running checks and a brief chat about driving fast on Lincolnshire roads doesn’t usually end pretty/slow down etc. He said I clearly knew the roads well and applauded my driving skills of not contravening solid whites whilst not dropping below 80mph very often through that section. Turns out he was a golf fan and liked mine, he then sent me on my way with a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again. I got back in my car and told the missis I had been let off.... she was fuming and didn’t speak to me for the remaining journey home! [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Whilst I am against this ‘the car will only drive at the speed limit for the road you are on’ what happens when they change limits, in a village let’s say from a 30 to a 40 or other way around. Are the updates going to be available that quickly that your car knows as soon as these changes take place? I think not. On the flip side of things, there is no reason other than ‘I want to drive fast’ as to why a car needs to do above let’s say 85mph (to allow that sudden inject of above the limit speed you sometimes need to when an idiot pulls out on you or whatever). Why not let people manage their own speed up to the maximum limit of 70mph on a motorway, but place a limiter on the top speed that vehicle can reach. Similar to the one they have at 155mph. But instead let’s say 85 or 90. If this ‘speed limiting’ is the way things are going I would prefer to see something like that. Another positive of this would mean that the shits that steal vehicles wouldn’t be able to have as many high speed police chases and they would hopefully be caught quicker. However, I think everyone should be responsible enough to drive properly, within their own limits and not like a complete ****. But hey that will never happen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Once my free AA cover ran out I went onto Martin Lewis’s money saving expert website and did a search on there for breakdown. They came up with https://autoaidbreakdown.co.uk/ and I managed to get 15 months for the price of 12. Covers both you and the other half for less than £50! With the same cover as the next to top level (not European cover) big boys! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I recently only changed my fronts, they were 2.8mm and my rears are around 5mm. 18000 miles on these tyres. The rears can wait Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tragic news.

    The Bentley driver so I heard. It’s always the same. The guilty get away unscathed and innocent victims are the ones who die or have their families ripped apart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
