Re: Ordering new Alfa Quadrifoglio

The car only had auto option but it really is a lovely zf box and the shifters are a thing I love. Totally Ferrari inspired and stay in same place ie fixed to column. The zf means I can blip down instantly sending flames out the rear and stunning crackles. I exhaust is incredibly noisy and attracts...

Re: Somebody reversed into my mums car

Driving for a company he'll go through that insurance. That will then mean your mum will have a non fault claim on her policy which could then put her insurance up. It's a tough one as he shouldn't damage the car, but claiming might end up costing your mum more money in the long run. Couple of year...

Re: Somebody reversed into my mums car

Thanks for replying. That would have been ideal Stego. I'm just concerned that with it being a company "Wates" I'm under the impression that they probably tend to do things through insurance and what not rather than settling it with a cash payout. Plus the fact that the car is non runner ...

Re: Somebody reversed into my mums car

Personally, I'd approach the company with a quotation for a dent repair and ask for a cash in hand payment. Same thing happened to me last year - parked up at Kwik Fit, local Tapas van driver reversed into my door. Approached him the next day with a BMW quote for a dent repair, and he paid cash, I g...

Not really. Best time to use eco pro in an auto is downhill, as it lets the car roll out of gear essentially

Re: EcoPro - Thoughts and Q&A

Used to use it all the time, as I never really drove the car quick (even managed to get it to over +100 miles 'saved') but nowadays I find I get better mpg using comfort. I think EcoPro is just a placebo effect, where it gives you a visual representation of what you have saved, which in reality is p...

Re: Anyone else a NASCAR fan here?

Stegs Nascar is great fun, for years i didnt rate the sport until last year when booking holiday to Florida as we do every year i couldnt be bothered going to the bike show so booked a Nascar day. What a blast those cars are and after spending time driving one i then watched a full race. Fantastic ...

Re: BMW back in the BTCC

Presumably still using the Vauxhall engine ? Can't see why BMW would want to get involved in BTCC, its a far cry from the Steve Soper days. Big grids, previous champions, entertaining racing and it gets young people used to the look of the car, so when they see it on the roads they can say 'daddy, ...

Re: Anyone else a NASCAR fan here?

Didn't watch much last year but I quite often tune in for a race. I think the sport has a good future with Chase Elliott, Larson etc. Was sad to see Stewart go - the time was right but its still a shame. His interviews were often fun. My mate and his 10 year old are in Daytona now! Jealous of your ...

Hell yeah...... 8) One day I'll get to watch one live.........hopefully. I visted Charlotte Motorspeedway 25 odd years ago, but not for a NASCAR race........but what a place. I've also been lucky enough to meet and have a good chat with one of NASCAR's true legends........Junior Johnson 8) Awesome ...
