  1. That advert is awful - almost agressive in it's tone. "Every wearable part replaced". Absolutely no way.
  2. I agree. The total cost was £245 for battery, fitting and coding. Ouch.
  3. A bit off forum here peeps, but a mate of mine has just had to shell out for one hours labour to get a new battery coded to his 630 (2006 vintage). Is this a reasonable amount of time for this? I would have thought it would only be a quick job.
  4. I'm all good here. Now retired and loving it! I've told the daughter that her first car will be around the 2k mark. Much more sensible as the chance of damage is greater in that first year or two of driving. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 1.3k - I wish. Daughter turns 17 next year and is convinced she's getting a Fiat 500. I'm not so sure[emoji10]. How's things Anil? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hi all, A bit of advice needed. I'm just bought some of the above, and wonder if I should be applying a sealant over the top of it? If so, which one would people deem a good product? Cheers Paul

  8. I live near this one if anyone wants me to pop over and see it for them: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291941965837?ul_noapp=true <<<<<<grin>>>>>>
  9. Or you could have this one for 60 big ones... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-850-5-6-CSi/262604724805?_trksid=p2047675.c100012.m1985&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160608105753%26meid%3D8ac14fc79cb44cd1bb62abafb303bf7c%26pid%3D100012%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D20%26sd%3D272337685000 Ouch!
  10. Lovely, really lovely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk and baad speeling
  11. Can't use Firefox at all people. IE is ok but still warns of certificate errors.
  12. Agree with all of the above. Although this is all terrible, I feel the human race is in a better place than in previous centuries, although there is still a long way to go and much hard work to be done to obtain overall peace and stop these attacks. By this time in 1916 we had managed to slaughter about 5 million in 2 years worldwide. Then 25 years later we added another 70 million or so. In the centuries before that there were countless examples of mass killings. Arguably, the west was a mirror of Islam in the time of the crusades when England and France went marauding through the East to win back Jerusalem. That was all done in the name of religion (Christianity) and woe betide any poor sod who got in the way - hundreds of thousands died at the hand of the 'noble knights'. These attacks are done by deluded, insane individuals and small groups that need to squashed. I'm not religious myself, but all people should be allowed their own personal beliefs - as long as they don't then insist theirs is the only way. Live and let live.
  13. Sat in a model s recently in Bluewater, Kent. Impressed, but the interior is not a patch on the Champers. And way out of my price range. It remains to be seen what the final version of the model 3 interior will be like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk and baad speeling
  14. Nope, not on the waiting list of 375,000. I'm a little more measured in my approach. I'll let them come to market, get properly reviewed and bed in a bit before going for one about a year or so old. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk and baad speeling
  15. A real dilemma mate, feel for you. I had a Champagne 2 last year, loved it, had wanted it for ages but shortly after I bought it it started to go wrong and didn't stop. After a few months and about 1,500 - 2k later I lost patience and sold it. Went back to my unsold Lexus IS200, which is sooo reliable but doesn't have the 'magic ingredient' that he Champers had. I've decided that in 2 years time I'm going for a complete departure from the norm. The Tesla Model 3 will then be available and funds permitting it'll be one of those with big battery pack and dual drive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk and baad speeling
