To those collecting new cars, please post pics and report back on how the powershift drives. (Include pics of the shifter/gear select - what ever yous call it. - Actually what do you guys call your auto's gear stick, I hear loads of different names of them?)

#279231 Who Says A Trip To The Dealer Needs To Be Expensive?

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 01 August 2013 - 08:06 PM

I've never been ripped off at my dealers, seeing the dealers ring me up for information... Lol.

What's all this crap about Powershift being non-eco and comparing it to a Vauxhall?

 

I believe it's heresy and treason, and carries the penalty of death by hanging if you admit to it, or to be hung, drawn and quartered so that your soul maybe cleansed by pain if you don't admit to it.

It makes a MASSIVE difference!!!! Automatics use a LOT more fuel, as the engine is also operating the clutch & changing the gears as well!!! And to do this, it needs fuel........

 

I can't believe they allow you to drive if you can't figure that obvious, basic fact out......wow

 

No need to be quite so snappy, we're all to be friendly here not criticizing people for their comments.




#277322 Fog Lights, When To Use

Hence really the thinking behind the CREE's, they act as an extra marker in the fog, rather than any proper illumination.




#275596 Mk7 St Exhaust

I've gone for a custom job with someone I know, went for a sport cat too, so a turbo back system with sport cat. Sounds good in my opinion and not too loud (silenced).

#274594 Green Fiesta St!!

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 12 July 2013 - 08:19 PM

For a Fiesta I was quoted £1800 - 2100 by Ford, depending on colour, with Ultimate Green it would have been £2100 if I recall :P I did enquire, but figured meh, a lot for paint.




#274251 Best Colour Fiesta?

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 11 July 2013 - 07:33 PM

I hated my Molton Orange ST at first, was like to the salesman, 'Well this sucks doesn't it?' but it's really grown on me.

I'll vote for rainwater, with occasional puddle splashing, followed by driving quickly to avoid streaks :P




#272315 Getting Sick Of Sync, Looking For Help To Install Aftermarket.

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 02 July 2013 - 08:54 PM

Not gonna lie, Sync is the worst thing I've ever had on a car, and that's saying something when I had a car that on every journey the brakes would set on fire if you'd been on a Motorway.




#272029 Forza 5 Or Driveclub ??

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 01 July 2013 - 07:54 PM

GT6 won't be on PS4, it's already been stated that it'll be PS3 only, though you'll be able to buy it to download for PS4.




#271989 Pirelli Or Silverstone?

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 01 July 2013 - 06:09 PM

The tyres aren't designed to fail after so long, they soften the compound to add extra grip and decrease tyre life. Trouble is when something like a sharp kerb comes, because the rubber is soft they take a beating. 

 

I remember a few years back where a lot of teams pulled out of the Indy circuit, because the tyres were shredding due to the track having some sort of extra grip material, but when the cars run in reverse it shredded the tyres, Bridgestone knew this because Firestone their sister company had experience of it and sent stronger tyres, those on Michelin's suffered.

I even see voice texting as being an issue, as it's still distracting because you'll still check to see if it's right, that second you're looking at the phone BAM you're now half tree.
