  3. Muppets, Plenty of blame to go around here.. The GT86 clearly should not have pulled out, he could see the Nissan and the speed involved, no doubt he though he'd be able to have a "race" the biggest lack of brains available. The 350z, why are you racing along a street lined with people? Pretty dumb. Spectators, why are you standing feet from muppets? The interview with the organiser sounds like he's a very level headed guy, the meet is in a carpark with speed bumps to stop people being idiots but as always brain dead morons have to turn up to try and make themselves feel special by being idiots. Just shocking stuff, if people choose to be this way there's no wonder the police and society clamp down on it and wanting to admire a group of nice cars and have a chat then becomes some illegal activity. I'd never ever put my life in the hands of morons around me. Everyday when I drive I'm fully aware that every other car could be driven by a complete idiot and keep the appropriate distance and try to fully anticpate that they could choose to do anything not just what I'd expect.
  4. Very true, you pay if they're ill or on holiday as well!
  5. 2-4 isn't an issue for me but 6-8 is definitely on the limit, at 6 weeks it's a properly spluttery slow start, 8 weeks is dead battery territory. No worries though I'll pop it on a trickle charge in the garage. Speaking of which my current charger is basically a transformer and 2 croc clips (ebay special) it works fine but I wonder if there's a nicer version people recommend?
  6. For the past year and a bit I've been swapping between the 350 and my other car (Thwarting my attempts to get it over 100k miles) Often it sits in the garage for up to 6-8 weeks, twice now the battery has discharged and I've had to let it charge over a few days before using it when it's perfectly happy again. In the 7-8 years of ownership It's had a few batteries so it's kept fairly up to date. I've no problem with putting it on trickle charge while in the garage I'm just wondering if people consider it should be able to sit for up to two months and still be able to start happily? It has an aftermarket stereo/rear camera/auto folding mirrors, rear view mirror mod but all of them should have been wired up to the correct power (ie not the always live). It's perfectly happily not being used for a few weeks but 2 months seems to be the limit, does that seem about right? The fancy BMW just seems to turn things off to ensure the battery doesn't drain obviously the 350 doesn't have those sort of features. Just curious

    Quick Jack

    Similar for £1000 I really want to know they're awesome! I'm always looking for better jack's I hate using the smallish trolley one I've got!
  8. Damn you Adrian! I'm a good few years behind on my z purchases and you keep adding cool stuff!
  9. I think most people get YouTube.... The issue isn't that he financed it, he broke the terms.of the agreement. It's not his property why on earth should BMW want him messing with their property?
  10. 100% agree, what's scary if he doesn't understand his responsibility to read some paper that clearly outlines the terms of the contract does he actually understand the responsibility of driving not just a car but an extremely powerful car? Why is it in these situations people defend this sort of action? have sympathy for these people or even rail against the terms of the deal. Don't like them? Don't buy the car, it's not an item you need to live. I bet he sets up some sort of donation page and gets other idiots to pay for it. Ridiculous and the rest of us who accept our responsibility and make choices accordingly get the rough end.
  11. Inexperience is applicable to a skill that's learnt through experience/training/repetition he decided to either ignore or not check or assumed because his friend did something he'd be fine. That's what I call stupidity, your in charge of your own actions, the documents contain all the info needed you are fully responsible if you comply or not. If you've decided not to comply with the conditions then you've assumed responsibility for the outcome. To pretend there's some injustice here is laughable.
  12. Inexperience? I'm confused, he didn't read or choose to ignore the terms of his finance deal that's nothing to do with experience!
  13. I think I have aftermarket bushes on my frame so would have to see if they'd fit. Do they do one for the diff?
  14. Shame then she didn't speak her mind at the point her mind was exactly what were people were using to decide their vote? She's elected because she got the most votes, votes cast based on her views or the views she stood next to. If she feels the people she represents are better represented with another set of views that is also fine but she should go back to those people and check. Principled politicians in the past have done so, why can't she? I think we know the reason, that if given a chance she would be unlikely to be returned to parliament, and if she knows that then surely she can't be expressing the views of her constituents?
  15. Which just underscores why people are voting for a brand new party that has one explicit aim...
