Re: A few more videos

Surely on a bike you should be able to toot and then dodge to whichever side of the road the horse leaves free. Plenty of throttle to minimise TED and up, up and away! :biker: :biker:

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

The display gives a visual version, that you can see, of the real world IR, that you can't. Things like nice warm bodies dressed in black. Ah, right. Thank you. Not moving in those circles, I had no idea how it worked. So it's not trying to show you IR, it's converting an IR image into visible ligh...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

I've only ever driven a car with one, once. I can't honestly remember. But in order to assimilate information, you have to divert your attention to it. The temptation is for manufacturers to incorporate lots of wizzy graphics, which will end up being more and more of a distraction from the real worl...

Re: M1 Minibus "Accident"

... talking to someone *in* the car is NOT the same as talking to the disembodied voice on the end of the phone. I agree. It can't be. So, purely objectively, think about that statement: On the plus side - ⋅  if the person is sensitive to driving requirements, they may modify their behavi...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

Many times. Out of interest, does the kit recognise anything except speed limits? And if so, what does it do with the information? I think I foresee a future where drivers are so busy looking at a little screen in the car to see what the latest traffic sign was, that they forget to LOOK OUT THROUGH ...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

When it comes to buying a new car "the punter's wife" can be a big sales lever for the salesman. They want the wife to touch the car, get in the car, fall in love with the car, and woe betide the husband/partner who disappoints his wife by not buying the car of her dreams, the car which w...

Halfords "normal" bulbs - £12 for 2
Lots more choices (including a pair of Bosch for £13 delivered if you've got Prime)

... and as I said - starting from £0.99 on your favourite online auction site.
