Re: Have diesel cars got a future?

Purely personally I wouldn't buy a diesel car for the following reasons. Modern petrol engines are becoming increasingly economical and the parts long lasting. I like the low down thump of a decent diesel, but prefer a free revving petrol motor. The future of diesel is uncertain and even vans are no...

Re: Flat bottomed steering wheels - why??

I have just had three weeks driving a car with such a wheel, and did it bother me? Not at all, in fact I really quite liked it as it gave you a decent place to rest your hands. It certainly wouldn't put me off buying a car that had one. The car in questions was a Citroen C4 Cactus which on first aqu...

Perhaps, just perhaps, it will finally wake the country up.
I personally doubt it but, one lives in hope, or so some say.
All the best.

Re: Santa list?

Nah! Won't happen, unless the President finds an equally bumbling ally, possibly one desperate for a 'friend' and easily influenced, with an incompetent leadership. A country, perhaps an island, that has become cut off and friendless. Just can't see it happening myself. Please please keep this topi...

Re: Santa list?

UK satellites? Any idea what the G in GPS stands for? Anyhow, the G stands for "American satellite" (Positioning System). Could be switched off tomorrow . Although that's true (which most don't realise), it's unlikely to happen. In peacetime, it would require the populace to vote in an id...

Re: 'Advanced' - a solicitor writes

I've expected witnesses to think I'm drunk when I'm merely dodging potholes and sunken drains :evil: As for court, I thought we were supposed to get a jury of our peers, so really it shouldn't be a jury of anyone unless they're also advanced trained. It's an interesting precedent for autonomous car...

I prefer not to call it 'Advanced Driving' rather 'More Educated Driving' or 'Smoother Driving'.

Re: Limited Slip Diffs?

Not an MX5. Something with more creature comforts, even heated seats.....well it’s my age that’s what I say. I have driven at least one fwd lsd some years ago and did not like it, too squermy. It was a few years ago now so things might have improved. Some MX5s have heated seats, air conditioning an...
