Re: launch control

The same ultra fast mode that can be engaged via xhp mapping? If so, does that mean after 50 modified gear changes your box may be at risk?

Re: Legal Advice Needed - Been sold a crashed and repaired, tuned car

I started to look, but almost 7 pages of 2018 plates alone. So many of these for sale.

Re: For those renewing insurance...

... I can highly recommend Adrian Flux. I did a ring around earlier this year, and at the time they were by far the worst company that quoted, they almost said I was uninsurable which made no sense. Anyhow, I have been doing a ring round today as my insurance is now due, and called them just to rul...

What the hell is coasting? Like holding your foot on the clutch in a manual? So gears not engaged? If so I had no idea it did that!

Re: tracker

I also declare I have a tracking device for the purposes of insurance, however, I am well aware of its limitations.

Re: Tracker

The BMW tracker via I drive is easily disabled via the menu, or potentially ripped out. I have mine on, but I wouldn't rely on it. You never know though. Proper trackers can be effective. But equally, you would be amazed at how many are ripped out and disposed of at the roadside. Some of the more cl...

Re: M240i rad fan / odd noises

My fan is fairly active, and it has been warm. But when cold I must say I never hear it on the drive etc. It does sometimes stay on a bit when I get back after a trip.

Re: M140 as a fun car

Irony,

In 2008 I bought my wife a Daihatsu Copen. 650cc turbocharged Jap engine. Slow as, but as it was low to the ground, and had an electric hardtop, it was awesome.

We still miss it today. Huge memories.

Re: launch control

I also agree that LC is a gimmick, and not functional. As referenced before, not something I use.

Re: launch control

Tried it several times. It engages pretty reliably but nearly always knocks the tyres off and as soon as launch control comes up on the dash you have to go so its pointless for a flagged race of santa pod for example because if you wait even 1 second the rears just start to spin. Its sh*t basically...

Re: 3rd gear 30-70mph

It was a fifth gen Civic, battered and dirty. It took everyone by surprise. It really was one of those "you had to be there" moments. I am limited as to the finite detail I can type. This thing was a joke, and I suspect running NOS or similar. Maybe worth mentioning, I did a kickdown video from 35 u...
