  • A) if it’s a ten minute ride yes, if it’s over on hour no.
    B) yes.
    And yes...

  • A) The end of the scale, had someone in my car passenger seat for a longish journey, seat was set to my wife's preferred setting - small, and despite me telling him often to adjust to suit himself, he 6ftish kept it how it was and looked all hunched and uncomfortable for the whole 2 horu trip, i found that equally bizarre
    B) unacceptable

  • Is anyone following the Stanceworks Ferrari 308 > Vtech conversion?

    It's painful, but interesting none the less.

  • That's so weird. Less weird if not right on the street... You'd think the car must get six offers a year at least. Maybe more.

  • The green Variant is a cool looking car, and nicest colour one I've seen, most of the ones I spot are orange. And continuing the VW theme, loving this potential bike transporter.

    And saw this full computer game Skyline today, in need of a wash, it looks worse than the inside of my fridge.

  • I had a flick through some of the later videos. That Ferrari (my favourite one I think) looked in really good condition.

    What a shame they couldn't be bothered to find one that might even have benefited from the attention.

  • Does anyone else get annoyed when a passenger gets in and A) starts fucking around with the seat position.

    Is this seriously a thing?

    I'm 190cm. The first thing I do when I get into a car is move the seat back. If there are people behind I'll move it the minimum necessary to not have my knees rammed into the dash and then ask if they've got room.

  • Is it me, or does that golf pick up look lengthened?

  • It's a Caddy, and that's just what they're like.

    The Mk2 is shorter because it's based on the Polo / Ibiza

  • Looks longer than a normal caddy for some reason

    Ths one looks shorter to me, being a normal caddy.

  • Adjusting to fit your legs in is different than someone changing every setting eg angle, height etc for a short journey.

    It’s a minor gripe.

  • Ah - yeah. Don't touch anything else. Was worried I'd been making a passenger faux pas all my life.

  • Yeah cars with that much adjustability....modern life is rubbish

  • Smash that subscribe button.

    It's the use of the spinning wheels of death and gas axes with shorts, Converse and sunglasses with a precariously placed axle stand which sets my teeth to grind.

  • Is that in Islington? Pretty sure I remember seeing it. If so, not a GTR. Just a GTS.

  • Been a while, but didn’t someone here have a Boxster?

  • It has been a while...


  • yes just 200 yards up the road

  • On recommendation i used Kwik Fit in Sydenham last week as i needed a tyre urgently and they had my type in stock. I went for a pair and they gave me 10% off and free fitting (the latter is a mid week offer). Nice guys, lots of hands on hips and "not seen one of them in a while" comments followed by genuine interest. In and out in 30 minutes, would go back.

  • @Chak around the Hackney/Islington borders somewhere, can't remember exactly.

    @Nahguavkire haha blimey, pretty cool but a bit over the top for my taste, and really not a fan of the hideous plastic bolt on wheel arch extensions.

    I saw a spotless dreamy Alfa GTV2000 today.

  • Can’t remember the last time I saw a DC2 Integra Type R parked on the street but this one now lives not far from my work

  • I did. I wouldn’t recommend. For all its reputation I found it dull as ditchwater to drive, unreliable and very cheaply made.
