lol imagine if Vauxhall made prisons.  Though thinking about it everyone would probably escape quite easily when walls just fall down for no reason.

lol you might be blinded by the sun but how can you not notice the lack of solid ground ahead.  And if that's 50mph...

#415141 Tax Disc No More

Posted by MartynS on 30 September 2014 - 08:24 PM

haha I wonder if the laws around displaying tax discs still apply if you choose to display one :D.  You could design a fake one or make up an expiry date and get fined lol.

#415107 Unused Filament In Rear Lights?

Posted by MartynS on 30 September 2014 - 05:52 PM

My dad picked up his new focus zetec s today, and since testing all the lights work properly there seems to be a filament in the fog light bulb on each side that isn't used.  Am I right in thinking that these are normally the tail lights, but as the car has led ones they aren't used?  Just to be clear the ones I'm talking about are the bulbs in the lower red section beneath the indicator and reverse ones.  Cheers!

#412592 St3 Auto Locking Doors

Posted by MartynS on 23 September 2014 - 07:29 PM

I think because the bonnet is that much lower being a coupe, it lifts the bonnet so the pedestrian is not hit only in the legs and then twisted over. It provides more surface area to come in contact with or something...

Fair point, if you're going to hit a pedestrian you may as well do it properly and cause injury to all of their body parts.  Why just stop at the legs when you can smash them in the face too?

Think his gloss black rims look better than the entire car :P

They obviously test their cars with no wheel trims to simulate real world scenarios as many vauxhall drivers like to remove them using the nearest curb.  It makes for good business though, the dealers just pick them up and stick them on the next car they sell before reclaiming them again.

I like how the bumper separates from the car and the cyclist goes right through the middle of both.  You do have to wonder why he didn't stop though, firstly when he could see both vehicles coming (though he was looking to the left), and secondly after the crash.  Just ducked a bit and carried on lol.

#411492 Tailgaters! What Can Be Legally Used To Dissuade The Morons ? Discuss

Posted by MartynS on 20 September 2014 - 12:01 PM

I just saw a car with the opposite - an (illegal) numberplate "H1 2 SLO".  No doubt used by the driver to relay a message when tailgaiting!  It's on an old looking jaguar estate though lol.

Regarding the numbers on the tip, does it intentionally end at 5 or did somebody rub one off?
