  1. Not half! Computer as a source?
  2. From what I've just heard with them giving it the beans with Leftfield and System Of A Down filling that studio, you'll be pretty chuffed with them!
  3. KEF are playing their LS50 wireless speakers at Metropolis Studios in Chiswick this weekend for The Headroom Show
  4. LS50s are great speakers! They were on my shortlist a few years ago, but went for something else, now sold... Picked up Faith No More's 'Album of the Year' on vinyl a few weeks ago, but not had a chance to play it yet. Most of this weekend spent with Radio 6 on, as most weekends when we're home actually; great mix of music, and Cerys Mathews' voice suits a lazy Sunday perfectly
  5. Yup, a biggun in 'zone a'...if I were a bit taller would be right in my field of vision. To to be honest, I thought it was going to fail and need to be repaired, but they passed it, so will leave it for the mo'.
  6. Just passed it's MoT! Only advisory was a for a bloody stone chip I picked up on my travels this week! Good for another 12 months...
  7. Blatant plug here, but are you after a saloon or estate? Blatant plug here, but looking at selling my 525d in the coming weeks... Drop me a PM if you want more details. Cheers, Nick
  8. Tyre snob here too, and take the view that they're your only point of contact with the road, so never scrimp... Currently running Michelin Pilot Sport 4 (just refitted my summer wheels yesterday), have Michelin Cross Climates on the winters, and Pilot Sport 3 on our Firesta, and all are fantastic. I fitted Goodyear Eagle F1 on my previous E91 after ditching the awful, and frankly dangerous Bridgestone run flats, and they were superb, but when they wore out, tried Michelin run flats, which felt like they were really working in harmony with the car. They've been mentioned previously, but not sure about Uniroyal Rainsport 3; a mate put them on his E46 and was really disappointed with how squishy they were, and how quickly they wore out, compared to Rainsport 2 (which I also had fitted to the Fiesta and an old A4, and were brilliant). A few years ago another mate just bought a car which had two brand new cheap Chines tyres on the front, and asked me to try it, as he thought it was just him having a problem, but I managed to make the front end slide on a dry roundabout at an appropriate safe speed - needless to say, it confirmed his fears and they were replaced straight away! Always a lively debate, but my view is that you get what you pay for, and a heavy rear wheel drive lump like the E60 needs something sticky to keep it in check... Cheers, Nick
  9. It's just the two of us bud... Everybody else is doing what we should be doing, and being out partying!
  10. Now we're on it!
  11. Anything, just love music...
  12. Been streaming Deadmau5 and Opiuo recently... a little more 'relaxed' but Noisia are well up there Give us some more suggestions bud, I need more music!
  13. Nice one Yokozuna, thanks for that! Let's get some good vibes going here!
  14. 30mm spacers on the rear changed to 20mm and no rubbing...doesn't look as obvious either! Brake fluid changed after two years and feels much better for it...
  15. Not posted much of late, but it's Friday night and I've been sticking a few albums on... So far tonight we've had OTT, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Public Service Broadcasting, and just about to wind down with Sasha 'Scene Delete' What are the rest of you listening to, and how are you listening; CD, vinyl, Spotify, Tidal? Just interested! Cheers, Nick
