Re: Clutch - heel & toe

You can't expect to use the well known name of a bona-fide technique out of context to describe something completely different and expect not to cause confusion... however much you protest that your OP was clear. If you mean to talk about foot placement or foot position on the clutch when changing g...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

The point, AFAIK, of IR is to supplement normal vision where visible light isn't sufficient. As far as info being a distraction, although I've never driven one, I like the idea of reducing the number of things illuminated at night, as done by SAAB several years ago. "NightPanel" is quite ...

Re: M1 Minibus "Accident"

... which completely ignores the fact that talking to someone *in* the car is NOT the same as talking to the disembodied voice on the end of the phone. I think this discussion has probably run its course now. Nobody is going to change their mind. Those that appreciate their own, human, limitations w...

Re: M1 Minibus "Accident"

The problem with being distracted and missing important things is that you cannot possibly know what or how much you have missed because, well, you missed it. From there on it all gets a bit Rumsdfeldian. You might think that you didn't miss anything, but you have no way of knowing and, while you ma...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

If the OP can find out from the dealer/JLR what is required for the TSR facility that his vehicle does not already have then it may help to establish whether or not it is a simple software switch. If all of the required hardware is already present...
