Ah good good. Just had the trophy popup to say someone joined the club.

I hope that the add-on packs add at least one ford. And replay mode can't come soon enough, I always race in car then like to watch it back. Otherwise you never get to see the car, lol.

Posted by alexp999 on 08 October 2014 - 07:00 AM

Got my chassis number yesterday and the dealer said the car was showing as body offline.

From what I have read that means the chassis is built and it will be painted next before the main assembly :D

I'll post up the ETIS result for those who are interested when I'm on the PC later.

#417085 White Smoke At Start Up

Has it only started since the mornings got colder recently?

#416075 A Warning To Us All!

Posted by alexp999 on 03 October 2014 - 07:00 PM

I don't know if there is any timeout on it, but the engine will definitely keep running when you take the keys out the car.

#416044 A Warning To Us All!

Posted by alexp999 on 03 October 2014 - 05:58 PM

Doesn't stop them driving away unless they stall it though, would just keep bonging about no key.

#415929 A Warning To Us All!

Posted by alexp999 on 03 October 2014 - 11:09 AM

Wow, that's bad.


I think most people would have done what he did and thought nothing of leaving the engine running while moving the sign... I would have anyway...

10,453 Corsas scrapped - Clive will be happy :D

#415001 Heater Settings

Posted by alexp999 on 30 September 2014 - 11:13 AM

A/C even on warm setting will dry the air and help clear things quicker.


I would have them blowing out of the "face/head" vents and feet then tip the vents towards the windows in the hope that some of it makes it backwards. Having it on feet should also direct some air to the rear under seat blowers.
