    Infiniti in nxt 3-5yrs? Residuals, Sales, Brand etc

    I would imagine if you asked the general car buying masses about Infinity, they wouldnt even know who they are, so probably answers your question about why people arent buying, imho of course.

    I would imagine anyone was has £800k burning a hole in their pocket probably has all of the above anyway, your into a completely different level of wealth if thats in budget.

    There are some fairly reasonable looking cars, GT86, Mx5 as an example, but there are no really good lookers i.e Rx7, but there are some complete shockers too. CTR, which blots the page. I think its a real shame when they put something together like the FT1, which imho was absolutely stunning, they can obviously do it, they just dont To be fair Skylines can never be described as good looking, but they have always looked purposeful and aggressive, i think the above just takes that to a new level.

    World Cup

    Most positive thing to take as agreed with you earlier and it is exciting for sure, plus i think Southgate is the best manager we have had for a long time, not forgetting Pickford, a revelation, probably would have been out earlier if it wasnt for him. But lets be frank, no matter how good you think they were tactically etc, they were average at best, semi's or not, played 6, won 3, lost 2, drawn 1, against average competition.

    World Cup

    I think this is the highlight to take out of it all, in a couple more years with other players coming in, we will have a credible side imho. But.... You can discuss tactics, ref decisions, chances for and against etc simply put they havent beaten a really decent team yet, i personally think if they had gone up against France they would have been embarrassed, so in a way, i am pleased they havent made the finals. One thing that really grated me though was all the pundits highlighting lack of experience, it wasnt so long ago we had a wealth of experience, Lampard, Ferdinand, Rooney, Gerrard etc etc and they did even worse and it was said they were too old. Lets see if they can beat Belgium this time around.

    I have had 235's on a 9.5 and run 275's on 9.5, 10.5 and 11 in the past!

    Mmmm, not so sure on the two tone, but in a solid colour i think it would look fantastic, i have a hankering to see that in full gold too But £800k or whatever it works out, not a chance. i wonder if this is the shape of things to come with the R36?

    I was always happy with a 275/235 combo, never suffered with understeer or lack of traction on the rear (inc track work) and that was on a v3 supercharged, personally i think thats over tyred and doesnt really offer any additional benefit, some dedicated track users like 245/255 on the front, so i would be looking at 275 rear and 245/255 front, but as davey says you will end up with a bit of a stretch on the front, but nothing severe

    World Cup

    If you going to try and have a pop, at least be accurate, i said they need to score in open play, set pieces are open play, they did score in open play and they won

    Nissan falsifying emissions tests

    Fair comment, but the question was about the environmentalists agenda, not the government.

    Motorcycle change discussion

    I went from Japanese to Italian and back to Japanese, i wasnt disappointed with any change, its just a different ride, much like a a say vtech with all the power high up to a vq with grunt from low down. Mmmm, yes, my Zx9R spat my off which resulted in a shattered talus, double compound fracture and a foot 130 degrees out of position I am afraid i couldnt look much past a blade, maybe not the fastest or if you wanted something a little off beat a Mv off sorts

    Nissan falsifying emissions tests

    So how come the environmentalists arent all over air travel, or are they?

    Nissan falsifying emissions tests

    After seeing Chris Harris try to drive the 718 Cayman in a way to meet the emissions figures quoted its all a bit of a joke anyway imho, look i know its not good (emissions etc) but at least make the targets do able and then all these manufacturers wouldnt have to cheat or falsify data! Yet still no one seems interested (governments etc) in whats going on in the sky above with plane emissions
