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 ...

Re: EV sales down

Is the early (and relatively wealthy) adopters market now saturated? I imagine so. They are ridiculously expensive, and I imagine not everybody wants to shell out for the infrastructure to charge them at home, on top of the price of the car. The savings in BIK tax for company car drivers may be an ...

Re: The joys of driving in Sussex!! Webcam footage

Personally I think all dashcam users/owners should be required to provide all footage for anyone who wants to go through and find fault with their driving. I've noticed a distint uptick in correlation between cars with dashcams fitted and substandard driving by the same car. IIRC the police force t...

Re: A few more videos

This is one of the occasions when a headlamp on/off switch is a benefit, so you can switch it off. My understanding is they don't like flashing/glaring lights - just what you might get from a bike bouncy on its suspension under braking. If they're that likely to get spooked, perhaps they shouldn't ...

Re: Insurance again.

I cancelled my insurance with Adrian Flux today but, firstly the amount of the policy cost refundable had altered considerably since I phoned on Monday. When I enquired of the reason, I was told that the amount I was told on Monday was only if I took up another policy with them. I did not do this a...

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?
