@  DerekJr. : (30 January 2015 - 08:30 PM) So if I drive with my hazards on, can i turn on my front fogs? lmao
@  ally : (30 January 2015 - 07:19 PM) Yeh, I could see the thinking behind it maybe, but some of them don't actually show any indicators flashing whilst this is happening
@  Raymond : (29 January 2015 - 10:37 PM) Very annoying indeed. If you can't see the bloody corner you shouldn't be on the road. Same as all those bell-ends driving in snow today...
@  bm530 : (29 January 2015 - 08:45 PM) It's to light up that corner of the road etc so you can see the road where you are turning better.
@  The Flying B... : (29 January 2015 - 08:05 PM) the fog light is wired to come on when the wheels are turned at a certain degree ( or some it just when idicators are on ) ...it annoys the life out of me too
@  ally : (29 January 2015 - 07:33 PM) What's going nowadays with mdern cars, they seem to have one front foglight instead of an a front indicator, can't be safe surely
@  bm530 : (29 January 2015 - 01:20 AM) lol I prefer some drama up to max torque looking at E63 AMG, seems like none of the dealers need to sell them as they are refusing to budge on price.
@  baus : (29 January 2015 - 12:14 AM) that's what 100% torque from 0mph looks like I suppose! bm530 - getting one?? :D I did try and race a tesla on the M1 once, starting at 50mph, it was gone within 2 seconds!
@  karlos28 : (28 January 2015 - 08:50 PM) yeh i saw them jamworth!
@  rincewind : (28 January 2015 - 07:47 PM) baus - that Tesla is very interesting. Love the reactions.
@  Jamworth : (28 January 2015 - 08:05 AM) Anyone seen the 2x 18" Para alloys on ebay for 2k! hahaha he must be joking!
@  baus : (27 January 2015 - 09:09 PM) https://www.youtube....LpaLgF1uLB8#t=0
@  alpinewhite525 : (25 January 2015 - 01:37 PM) It's true you get used to power, but I just test drove an E39 540iT and it felt like a 520i..
@  Jamworth : (24 January 2015 - 04:16 PM) if a 5 im going to look at had this: DSC Unit Repair Kit - cost £676.97 by DMWorx - What happened to it? What are the causes?
@  baus : (22 January 2015 - 05:40 PM) ChrisKnottIns your opening times around the festive season and on saturdays are rubbish... tried ringing you last year, and this year and had to go elsewhere!
@  cableguy : (22 January 2015 - 03:38 PM) Emma called and all sorted. Thanks.
@  ChrisKnottIns : (22 January 2015 - 02:18 PM) Thanks, yep I've chased Emma. Not sure if she's in today so I've copied her colleague in too. Hope you hear soon.
@  cableguy : (22 January 2015 - 01:41 PM) PM'd. Thanks.
@  ChrisKnottIns : (22 January 2015 - 01:39 PM) Whats your surname cableguy?
@  cableguy : (22 January 2015 - 12:47 PM) Called you 24hrs ago and still waiting for a reply?
