Re: GBOL & DSG Gearbox

The DSG sees things very simply, and it isn't psychic. It can guess, based on various tables and your current inputs, but it can't always be correct. When you hit the brake, are you planning to come to a complete stop or just momentarily hesitating while getting ready to floor it? Or maybe you're j...

Have diesel cars got a future?

Just wondering if it is worthwhile looking for a 2nd hand diesel £4000 ish. I know the tax is likely to rise from the current low £30 but by how much, any ideas? or should I be looking at petrol only? Hoping to keep it for a reasonable length of time.

Re: Horn sound?

Recently swaped my original feeble Micra horn for a Corsa one. Not too loud but at least it can be heard. Works on distant cyclists, lane swapping Audis and Purley Way traffic in general. Brill.

New years day drive

I thought that the roads would be relatively clear by 2 oclock. Sadly not so, must have left it too late. The nice national B road near me was full of bods doing 40 to 50 with no apparent reason. Got past a few but only to catch yet more. Now I see why so many of us from East Surrey end up on ADUK d...

APNR cameras

I was under the impression that these could pick out untaxed, uninsured and mot failure vehicles. So why does the Swinton ad. state that there are one million uninsured drivers out there? Can this be right? :?
