  1. I never knew there were speed cameras built in traffic lights , thanks for the heads up.
  2. Surly this is not true, the Queens Portrait has been voted out at an Oxford university by the students.
  3. I still can’t get my head around the new Defender, if it proves to be reliable and not suffer from electrical gremlins I may get one later. I think considering what they cost you would be a brave boy to buy one at the moment.
  4. I have come to the conclusion that the Government would rather let these murders continue than do something that would be considered racist by the same few that shout loudly.
  5. Before they had a dedicated car wash area at my local town they would wash your car in it’s car park bay, ok if your car was being washed, but if your car was on each side of it not so good as they rubbed past yours with there buckets.
  6. Have a look at the BMW X5 M sport, 3lt Diesel was my choice, plenty of boot room.
  7. I have seriously thought of buying one as well, looked at lots of reviews but reviews these days all seem to be PC. My biggest concern is the electronics in the new Defender, not something JLR have a good reputation on. I decided to leave it for a couple of years and see how they go. My replacement for the moment is a BMW X5 m sport, the v6 Diesel is a lovely motor.
  8. Go and have a look on YouTube, what’s going on with him and the BBC is a real eye opener.
  9. Is any one else following this guy on YouTube, he is a BBC whistle blower and the voice of reason. I watched him film to day where the Police have relived him of his front door, I can’t get my head around what’s happening here to this guy, are the BBC really that powerful.
  10. Just been informed by my Electric company that there prices are going up as well, if this Electric push goes ahead I wonder what we will be paying by then, plus the Government duty on top.
  11. I have a case 895xl 4wd, with loader, this will happily pick up a ton, I use it for everything around my land, I do have seal leaks on the front hubs which is quite common but not the end of the world, I have had several different machines over the years but I have found this one to be reliable and has done everything I have thrown at it.
  12. Just filled my one in, what’s to stop certain people not saying who is living in there home especially if there not meant to be here.
  13. And none of the doors would shut properly.
  14. Anything from JLR needs carful thought especially if you like the shirt on your back, I am looking at the Porsche Macan, I have had 2 Porsches and touch wood no problems.
  15. I admit to be being a Dinosaur but Electric cars are a swear word to an old Petrol head like me, I have a 997 and a Pajero Evolution that I run regularly, I was thinking with the Macan that could replace those 2 and have the best of both worlds. I never do any serious off roading other than shoot tracks.
  16. Any one had or got one of these, I was looking at the v6 petrol, all the reviews seem to look good but most reviews of cars these days seem that way. Thanks.

    We seem to be in a time where there is unlimited money to hand out, I never knew the Government had so much of our money in reserve. You don’t think Tax’s will go up surely.
  18. Having had to of made some claims over the years i firmly believe that insurance is there to not pay up if there is any way they can get out of it. I had a very big claim on a Range Rover and this guy on the phone from the insurance company had been through my policy with a fine tooth comb, our conversation was being recorded and it really felt like he was trying to catch me out to say I was doing something that was not on my policy. Answer all questions correctly on the application or you may regret it latter.
  19. Nice one, One of my best crashes was when I first started doing loops with not enough height, not only did it enter the ground like yours it then beat it self up on the ground as well. When I got home with the bits it got even worse when the wife saw it.
  20. About 3 years ago was my last flight, Trex 600 , I packed up because or though I could fly it I had one to many spectacular crashes that cost a fair bit to put right.
  21. Just paid me £9, registered and completed the on line test, got 45 out of 50 which is enough for a pass. Happy days.
  22. Just had a look at that, not sure if I need to pass some sort of test as well
  23. I have just acquired my first Drone a Holy stone HS720E, my question is do I need to register this some where, I was told that it is light enough to not have to or take any sort of test to fly it, I used to fly 600 nitro Helicopters in the past that were much bigger than this and you did not have register them at the time. I don’t want to be on the wrong side of law with it though. Thanks.
  24. I also have a mk3 GT6, now that straight 6 is a gem to work on just flip the bonnet and the whole engine is in front of you.
  25. 997 4wd manual, it has had a 10k Hartech Engine up grade last year, if your interested have a look on Hartechs web site they have a speeded up video of what they do to a Porsche Engine. I have a small collection of classic cars, I will put some pics on some time for those That like this sort of thing.
