  1. 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.

  2. 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. 

  3. 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.

  4. Just now, Scully said:

    Never heard of him. 🤷‍♂️

    Go and have a look on YouTube, what’s going on with him and the BBC is a real eye opener.

  5. 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. 

  6. 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.

    I've just inherited a smallish beef farm. It is a working farm but in need of a serious clean up. I'm considering buying a tractor with a front loader to help with the initial clear up, spread dung and be a utility vehicle on the land. I'm looking at a Case 1394, but I am pretty sure a shooting forum isn't the best place to get pointers about this particular machine.

    Could anyone give me a pointer as to where in could get an honest appraisal of this model. It's the 4 wheel drive one with just over 4000 hours.

    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.






  8. 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.

    And none of the doors would shut properly.

    What do you want / need it for?

    I’m guessing not off road.

    If you reckon on less than 250 miles a day and ideally are involved in a limited company (and so can take advantage of the zero car tax) then look at the electric Jag iPace - there’s some cracking lease deals about. We’re about to get two at work, having done the head scratching, analysis and wanting to spend money that stands a chance of being of benefit to this country (notwithstanding that they’re built in Austria 😆).



    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.

  11. 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. 

  12. 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.

    This was one of my more spectacular crashes, practising 'nose in' really did get to be a nose in lol.

    The G-ranger stand back scale fuselage was something I made and sold along with composite blades and a few other aftermarket upgrade parts over 20 years ago.


     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.

    Now that's been resolved I'll chance a de-rail and ask how long ago you flew 'nitro'

    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.

  15. 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.

    Easy, do you drive for pure enjoyment and feedback or do you want more luxury in a bigger car. The 997.2 is hydraulic steering and smaller with great feedback. The 991.1 is more luxury inside, a lot more electronics, same engines but some models have active engine mounts. Can't see anything if you lift the rear engine cover two fans in housing two fill caps, one for oil one for coolant. On a 997.2 you can get to the engine yourself and work on them if you want to.

    Both very good and nice cars.

    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.

  17. 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.
