  1. Love the red one , the white one looks erm a bit.....
  2. Do you mind? That's my best Cambridge boating blazer! I have since discovered electric toothbrushes and fancy toothpaste.
  3. Erm very random, is your way to avoid congestion charges or build a cool ride on mower with attitude!
  4. Re Porsches they might handle well etc and look pretty but the 2 Caymens my other half had were nothing but trouble, exposing how cheaply made they were. I know the Caymen saved their bacon but the first one Caymen S (2007) had engine issues, window winder mechanism failed, radio playing up, the second revised shape Caymen (2010) had a cable snap for the gear linkage ,cable ?? In a car like that with a crappy plastic fitting that fell to bits leaving her beached in the outside lane of a motorway slip with no way to move. There were a lot of other issues which just highlighted how it was almost built to cost, reliant on the badge to keep the price high. She wont touch another again! I hope they have resolved all of those kinds of things in the new shiny ones?
  5. Sorry for all the Ev posts but VW have jumped on the volks-wagon now and did what I will do to mine (one day!) Good idea, like the flip up tail light power feed, but whats wrong using the original petrol flap at the front? Plus all the mud gets thrown up in that wing area. Not sure why they needed to wrap the runnerboards around and make them fatter, maybe to cover the extra battery packs? If you look at vw's press site you will find more pictures not least the UP engine and controller. Sheesh its huge! If you look at the zelectric and other classic conversions its just got the washing machine motor , controller and empty engine bay this thing is almost as big as the old engine? I shall expect stupid prices for this conversation. Just have to wait for the tech to drop in price. 5 years I recon. https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-germancars/vw-e-beetle-on-the-way-to-frankfurt/40898

    Heres the new zed we will end up with! Phwaaarrrr! Max Power!!
  7. I have to agree however strangely manufacturers are still bringing out large engined stuff , just look at piston heads and top gear. Although they aim at the higher richer market segment. Its also nice to see Mazda continuing to develop petrol engines and rotary engine. Nissan on the other hand , their main customer base is SUVs , bread and butter stuff like Micras and the other end GT-R , thats it. Everything else in between is niche or on hold whilst they decide how to handle electrification ? I expect others are the same? I still hope for a new Zed but even VW dropped the Beetle their iconic car.

    Problem with these designs is scale half the time? They generally are smaller than you imagine and lose that wow factor impact on the street? Its ok the front looks a bit Peugeot-esq cross with RX8 and the back with the current infiniti q60 coupe? Although over all its ok , its not really that ground breaking or exciting stylewise. The second part is the interior, the concept will look fab but then the accountants get involved so we end up with a watered down version of their current range. The Honda ev concept for example was superb, yet the production version looks a bit toned down . We wanted those massive alloys!!
  9. Strangley like this one!! Got to love beige however its very knightrider isnt it! http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201905298445716?atmobcid=soc3
  10. The art of a good photographer! Lets see what its like on Saturday.
  11. We are back on Saturday to Leeds will take a proper look and see if I can see inside? Not that I will be buying one anytime soon, happy with the Stang, although it does look very dated compared to all the futuristic Lexi (plural to Lexus)?
  12. I just wasn't that impressed especially with all the fanfare around it? Maybe as it was a dull day and it was in a dark blue colour? Like I said its probably superb engineering but just didnt do anything for me? Must be an age thing. I'll get my cocoa!
  13. We nipped to Lexus Leeds to look at a replacement M2 for the other half, whilst there, (next door is Toyota) and sure enough a Supra at the front of the showroom. Sadly didn't get a chance to go in and take a look, sit in it, but honestly , underwhelming car. I only noticed it being a petrolhead that I am on the way out. Its teeeeny weeeny , 1990s style wheels you could probably buy cheap off ebay. The front just looks so boring, again 1990s . Yes I get it they are trying to recreate their 90s heyday. Its like Toyota version of an old 90s raver , still thinks he is cool but is bald fat and looks like Daddy pig. Aceeeeed...... Shame. I am sure it handles well and everything else and is no doubt a piece of exceptional engineering, you wouldn't notice it unless you were looking for it so to speak. Ironically the Z4 stands out more.
