Re: Start stop playing up,

Does the rear window heater work?

That’s often a giveaway that the battery is dying or needs a good, long run the get some charge on it. Or a home charge overnight.

Re: TRL M140i Motech Edition

Interesting that the market is there for all these visual and cosmetic “performance” add ons. I can’t believe that the suspension changes that probably do help the performance are bought for that and not the aesthetics. It’s a lot of coin to drop on heavy depreciating tart up cosmetics IMO. At least...

Re: Servicing - list of things included in each service

Coolant is lifetime according to my service manager. i.e. it isn’t replaced, just topped up.

Guess it’s no major job to drain and refill if there is an easy access drain plug.

Re: European Trip

Take a few debit/credit cards with you for the self serve fuels. My experience is there is no set rule and the last thing you want is to be caught short. Not at all wanting to teach how to suck eggs but some thoughts.. We stayed in Tremezzo for a week (other side of Lake Como to Bellagio). There are...

Re: LSD advice

I noticed an immediate difference when pulling out of T junctions, esp one where I turn right and slightly uphill on my commute. That is in comfort and sport. It is more noticeable when you are being more aggressive/extreme but you don’t have to be sticking the arse out to benefit. The feel is bette...

Re: Deal Offered

I’d not want to be coming out early if I dropped £10k on it before it even left the forecourt..!

To be fair tho, I wouldn’t even put £1 down let alone £10k on a PCP :)

Re: LSD advice

The LSD is noticeable on everyday driving, not just those long sweeping bends so whether it is a waste or not for those mentioned requirements would pale in to insignificance. Perhaps :)

Re: Bedford TD 17th of Feb

Even if it’s crazy completely pishing it down, are winters a complete waste of time? Conti TS830’s is the compound is pretty decent. Am thinking there’d be enough water to keep the temperatures down. Am happy enough to deal with the extra squirm of the big tread blocks and I’d be ok with playing rat...

Re: LSD advice

Look at the track times git-r2 on here is putting down. The believe he is running 225 square. Could be wrong, mind!

I suspect tyre compound makes more of a difference than pure dimensions.

Re: LSD advice

Does it help? Yes. All that stuff about high speed sweeping bends. No idea. I’ll leave that someone who has driven both with and without around a track where you can properly push, test and feel. I doubt it will help that much on the roads. However. Low speed, junctions, roundabouts etc it makes a b...
