    Great to see the forum is still alive & so many of the old faces are still active! I finally got bored of tax free earnings and constant nice weather in Dubai & decided to come home to the frost and Brexit I still have my E39 530i and my E46 M3 I shipped back from Dubai with me so I’ll be popping in from time to time

    Top Gear

    I thought it was pretty poor to be honest Was hoping for a revived top gear- not the same format with presenters who are no where near as entertaining as the three amigo's!

    Dubia sky scraper fire.

    The problem is here that they didn't insist on fire retardant material for the facade, but I think the law has been changed Following lots of recent fires started the same way. Fire prevention / detection systems inside these tall buildings are actually very good and to a very high specification- civil defense regulations on fire fighting / fire prevention systems are extremely stringent- they just don't help fight or detect fires which start on the outside! The issue is that PVC facade fitted to all of these "older" towers burns so easily, fanned by the wind, the flames spread up and down the outside of the buildings easily- looks bad from the outside, inside it could be minor damage only. This was another fire started on a balcony- by either a stray cigarette, Shisha coal or some numpty having a barbecue on their balcony IMO- although I think reports have said electrical fault. There was a huge plume of smoke across Dubai- we live 25km from downtown and we could smell the burning plastic in the air- a trail of smoke covered much of Dubai downwind of the fire. Seems like injuries were minor and mainly as a result of a chaotic evacuation rather than the fire. There is a lot of flack for allowing the fireworks / celebrations to continue in the circumstances- but letting the fireworks off was probably safer than removing 1000's of live fireworks- so the show went on.

    Had a paint correction detail done

    Looks great- I had an R plate V70 XC it had 180k on it and it still drove superbly - the most comfortable car I have owned I think- I don't mind a Volvo to be honest [emoji106]
