Re: Tapatalk - should we allow it to access the site?

I don't use Tapatalk and it may be my imagination, but it seems that many Tapatalk posts tend to have more drivel in them than others. Is it a matter of autocorrect causing the issue?

It would be useful though for the size limit to be displayed in the inital text because I keep forgetting what it is -I know it's around 250KB but keep geting caught out and have to reload.

Re: Tints too dark?

A couple of days ago, I was out for a wander at lunchtime and saw two cars (different locations) with seriously blacked out front windows. Both attracted my attention with ludicrous exhaust noise (makes you think the recent news of sound detectors is a good thing) and the advantage for the drivers o...

Re: 245 front tyres

No, I'm old school and not a fan of spacers, even small ones.

No marks on tyres at all.

Re: 245 front tyres

On mine, 245/40/18 (MPSS) mounted on 8J ET40 with M4 LCA + TS. I needed to get my front arches flared to clear. Would have been worse with square shoulder tyres like AD08 or R888, etc I would say 8J ET45 is needed to guarantee no outer rubbing. ET45 on the front is a gnat's from fouling the strut. ...

Re: Tints too dark?

35% light penetration, not 35% darkness. If that makes sense. Doesn't really make sense if they're described as % tint It is almost entirely aesthetic, that is the benefit. That said aesthetics are very personal and it is entirely in the eye of the beholder and the purview of the owner (within lega...

Re: Brake discs - am I bring had over?

My 3,200 mile warning has been advising me that new pads were required nearly 2 years and 18k miles ago at around 30k miles.

To me, your pads still look quite meaty. Just keep an eye on them but if you're planning on any heavy driving, consider getting them replaced.

Re: Tints too dark?

Any additional tint to me is so wrong. I hate tinted windows for a number of reasons, the principle one, is that I like to know who, or what, is behind me at night. It's also the reasoon why I've disabled my mirror tint which I've only needed to override 2 or 3 times in nearly 4 year's of ownership ...

A great shame. I had even forgiven him for inheriting the race win at Brands 1976 when Hunt was disqualified - What a race that was, watched from South Bank along with all the hooligans throwing tin cans, etc onto the circuit when they said Hunt couldn't take the restart :lol: Who's going to respond...

No worries, like I say, it genuinely wasn't a post to be a nob, just always interests me that it's easier to simply look it up, but I do get the fact that sometimes you want real people to back it up 8)

Re: Van speed limits - can someone put my mind at rest?

Not being funny but why do people come on the internet to ask questions like these, when it's easier and quicker to simply look up the actual answer, ask on a forum that could still give wrong answers? https://www.gov.uk/speed-limits I was wondering that BM.

Re the comments about driving on autobahns, especially if you have never done so, the lane discipline and general awareness is so much better than our slow roads.
