    Looks decent - I quite like a cream pickup cover!

    Makes me feel like I need a tort scratch plate for my Mustang now, hmmm....

    The streaming thing is such an interesting one; I find the really big streamers very difficult to watch, it's always such over the top americanisms (Nick Mercs, TTT, Tfue, Dr Disrespect etc...). They rake it in because the American market is so huge & seemingly that's what they like.

    For me, success in streaming is 90% how entertaining people find you, not how good you are at whatever you're playing. Out of that list you have to go down a fair way to find the people that are winning the tournaments - Ayden for example wins a lot of competitions but is a relatively dull/not engaging streamer (still earning a chunk though).

    I think it would be very difficult for a UK based streamer to start now & gain enough of the market to earn enough to not have to have another job but still lead a normal life. There are a few that are probably making enough; Tommey (British but based in the US), Fifakill & Jukeyz (they're in the UK but have to play in the US overnight to earn a wage), BennyCentral (mostly works for Xbox but streams on Youtube too) but they've all been grinding for years.

    Twitch is full of channels of people streaming all day & night to less than 100 people (most of whom won't be paying anything), when you'd probably want, I don't know, 1k subscribers per month maybe to pay for rent, food, clothes etc?
    Really difficult but doable I suppose if you've got some entertaining USP.

    So long as you're not yet another stealth archer, that's ok.

    After months of being in a losing rut & destroying my KDR I've finally managed to get a Warzone win again!

    I think the game has taken pity on me & dumped me down into a lower level of lobbies - I've had to go back to solos for the win too, it's a more boring game style but at least you're not constantly left out numbered!

    Just in time too, back at study now so got to take 6 weeks out the game. I'm on some magic BT waiting list for a PS5 so hopefully next time I play it'll be in the next generation!

    Yes I'm on the mot checker, will need to see the proof of services tomorrow.
    Across known suspension issues & rattly engines.

    We'll see, used cars near London has always been a swimming with sharks situation but my partner wants to learn to drive so needs a car (within some very specific parameters).

    Off to view a car tomorrow with the intention to buy - slight worried we're not going to be able to buy enough petrol to get it home!

    Anyone know the issues to look out for on a 2nd hand golf Mk5 (not a high spec one)?

    Would be interesting if people could actually get their hands on the console! Currently it's like a trailer into a dream land!

    Well done!
    I've tried going back to apex a few times recently but I struggle with the pace of it - I always want to rush yet know that it's more of a chip away type game!

    I just can't do it - fair play to plugging away at it though!

    Yeah it really changes the look/feel - makes it easier to see some of the details that get lost amongst the steel bracelet (eg the twist in the lugs).

    Just the one watch for me - getting some fresh air in the Highlands.
