  1. @Sim Thanks very much. They were done by Si at hide’n’seat. He was a member on here, not sure if he still is. Great guy and did a fantastic job, he’s done quite a few cars on here
  2. Anyone want this before I bin it. Can have it for free if you collect. It’s not in too bad condition, however the joins between the carbon and the leather are not great (hence the reason I replaced it). I’d rather let someone on here have it than scrap it. Collection only, from TS14
  3. Think I’ve changed the wheels on every car I’ve had. . . . . . Except this one, think they suit the car so much
  4. Hello and welcome. Nice looking car, won’t be long before the modding starts
  5. Yeah bigger turbos and all the ancillary’s. If your talking R8’s they’re on a whole different level! I wanted one for years, but didn’t think it would be worth the extra cost as it wouldn’t be much (if any) faster than my TT - oh how wrong I was! I bought a V10+ and it’s way better than my TT. The handling is unreal, and the whole driving experience is in another league
  6. I ran a modified mk2 TTrs for 7 years, 5 of those alongside my 370z roadster and I can definitely say the TT was cheaper to run. Despite being stage 3 (~575bhp) it was roughly the same cost to insure, the tax was less than half that of the Zed, and servicing was about the same (done at an independent). Mpg was better in the TT - unless I was booting it, which, actually come to think of it was most of the time In all those years it was ultra reliable, never had a single fault. I would say the build quality was significantly better than the Zed (not that there was anything wrong with the Ze
  7. Ok, except yours . But yours isn’t ‘really’ a Vauxhall is it
  8. Just offshore from near where I live is a huge wind farm, which, you would think, would provide a big (environmentally friendly) contribution to the national grid . Well, these were often seen to be not spinning (I.e. generating electricity). When asked why the answer was they can’t operate if it isn’t windy enough, fair enough you may think, but also they can’t operate if it’s too windy! WTF! Surely in this day and age there is technology out there to allow these to operate at variable speeds?
  9. Vauxhall’s are for people who’ve given up on life Thats all I’m saying
  10. And that’s when it’s time to quit driving and use public transport! It’s thoughts like this that make me glad I’m getting old, by the time all this happens I’ll only need a car to pick up my prescriptions . Also glad I live nowhere near a big city, so will have freedom of the open road a little longer
  11. My daily is a diesel Evoque, but a few times lately I’ve had a hybrid hire car (for work) and even though it’s not been a car I would normally even take a second glance at, for round town and chauffeuring the grandkids I’m considering the possibility of one next to replace the Evoque. Don’t think I’d ever (well certainly not in the near future) go for a full electric car
  12. Managed to get in a late afternoon run across the spectacular North Yorkshire moors. These roads are amazing, and literally 5mins from my house! Just have to keep a keen eye out for sheep as for some reason the exhaust noise seems to scare the @*!# out of them
  13. Lovely car, and great photos. You keep on pic whoring as much as you want
  14. Love getting out and about on the North Yorkshire moors!
