Re: I want a BOV for my 120d

It's a lot of money to sound like a muppet, I fully appreciate the each to their own and everybody is different/it's his money stance.

I think they sound daft on most cars in fairness, but on a diesel?! Really not sure it's a good idea!

Still as above if you want one go for it!

Re: M2 v M4

Two different cars entirely, you'll know straight away which one is for you. Fun choice seems to be the M2 by all accounts where as the more practical cruiser choice would be the M4.

As said above though, only you know the answer.

TT vs Giulietta QV

A strange title I know given two completely different cars! To cut a long story short one of them needs buying on Saturday and I cannot make my mind up. 2010 TT 2.0 TFSI 208bhp 2010 Alfa Giulietta 235bhp I like the TT as I've heard the engine is a cracker and fairly cheap to run given the performanc...

Re: I test drove the new Civic Type R

Me being me the price grabbed my eyes more so than anything else, all it shows really is how flipping good value the M140 is! Comparing it do this and also the RS which in fairness would probably be a closer rival, where dealers are wanting well excess of £500 pm with no discounts available, seems s...

Re: Farewell!!

Youch, that shows how well modern cars crumple to protect us. You were lucky to go in backwards it should prevent you from getting whiplash as your head will just push back into the headrest. Sounds strange that it would just snap on a slippery surface the traction control on the E82 is fairly quic...

Re: Farewell!!

If the front went first at only 35mph, you must have hit something slippery on the road. Which setting was your traction control in? I'm so glad you were on 4 wheels, not 2! Happy wedding! Traction control was on fully at the time, never turned it off in fairness! it was the front passenger side wh...

Re: Farewell!!

Possibly mate I know it wasn't speed! I wouldn't have been so annoyed if it was :( Probably an old lexus f...

None at all luckily, may end up with delayed neck type injuries over the coming days but nothing at the time.

Not really mate just straight in to the lampost I think hitting the back has made it look worse as it's really just plastic! Big old lampost though!

Re: Farewell!!

Re: Farewell!!

Thanks guys as you say the main thing I managed to flick it round in time to take the impact on the boot initially heading in to the lampost bonnet first which, made my man bits slightly shaky! Had a couple of much higher powered cars and also managed to grab it back with ease but as said above this...

Entered the slip road no other cars around about 8.30 this morning doing 35 and it just let go on me felt like I was in the air really strange, no real explanation but the front went before the back which was a bit strange!
