    Discs and pads for 1M coupe.

    Hi, could you give me a quote for front and rear discs and pads for my 1M coupe? Chassis number VS71844. Thanks.

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    You've just got a bigger gator in the swamp now. How do you think he’s any different from the rest of the self serving shitheads? He’s pulled the wool over the eyes of many Americans by telling them what they want to hear regardless of whether it can be achieved or if he has any intention of delivering. A bit like Farage.

    Air Con - Quality Enhancement

    It just means they’d like you to get them to service your air con. Does it work ok?

    ULEZ Now Effective

    Any petrol car pre 2006 or diesel pre 2015 will be affected I think. As most of Greater London is residential it’s going to mean a new car or £12.50 a day for a lot of people. As usual it’s those with the least money who are going to get shafted.

    This couldn't actually happen, could it?

    I think the response would be exactly the same as if you were driving an older car that didn’t have it fitted.

    As far as I can see all that is being proposed is that these systems will need to be fitted to all new cars. You don’t have to use them. If you are worried about potentially being tracked then you shouldn’t go anywhere with your mobile phone or drive any car that has a sat-nav fitted. Yes this technology will need to be in place for autonomous vehicles to function properly which a lot of people actually want. I can’t see why everyone is getting upset about this. If you don’t want to use it then switch it off or drive an older car that doesn’t have it fitted. It doesn’t encroach on your personal freedom in any way.

    Road safety groups lobby governments to either reduce speed limits or strongly enforce current limits. For governments it’s a relatively easy way to look like you are doing something about reducing road deaths and serious injuries. We are car car enthusiasts who like driving, most of us feel that the way forward is better driving education, lane discipline and limiting unnecessary distractions whilst driving. I think we are probably a minority. Most people just think less speed, less chance of an accident. Most governents try to do what the largest group of people want (even if they are misinformed or haven’t actually thought about it), especially if they think that might get them re-elected. That is all this is.

    What that this story hasn’t been blown out of proportion and reported as the EU trying to control every aspect of our lives? Ok. 1. This is merely a proposal rather than passed legislation. 2. The system can be overridden or switched off. You have stated that that this is the EU wanting to control and monitor us like they are some kind of sinister group hell bent on ruining our lives. I can’t see how you get to that using this proposed system as an example. I dont wish to argue argue with you about it. We obviously have opposing views so maybe we should just leave it at that.

    I don’t see how this system makes you think the above. What you have posted is not a proportional response in my eyes.

    Well, let’s see. Can this system be overridden or switched off? If it can then how exactly are you being controlled by the EU?

    I haven’t looked into this in any detail either. I know that the system Volvo are proposing can be overridden by the drivers least if not switched off entirely. I can’t see how other manufacturers would make a system that is permanently engaged for potential litigation purposes if nothing else. Certainly any high performance car manufacturer would strongly oppose such a system as it would render their product virtually pointless. As usual the story gets blown out of all proportion and gets reported as the evil EU trying to control every tiny aspect of your life.

    is it really minus 14 in uk?

    What, like the BBC is being run by communists with a secret plan? How does your tin foil hat fit?

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    Exactly. He’s a lying sack of shit with no moral compass at all. I don’t see how anyone can think there is anything positive about him being president. He is a danger to the entire planet.

    Driving in Europe after 29th March

    Yes. The big bad EU trying to punish us. That’s what it is. We we have decided to leave the EU and the benefits that membership brings. There may be some benefits to being out of the EU but this isn’t one of them.
