Bleugh...don't like custard creams!! Bourbons on the other hand :D

Must admit, Aldi & Lidl do have some random stuff come in - most of it is decent enough for general domestic use

#421274 Vauxhall Viva To Be Relaunched!

Posted by SeanW on Yesterday, 12:11 AM

At least they haven't gone for something as stupid sounding as "Adam" or "Mocca"

Can't imagine they'd get much interest in a Vauxhall Bogroll

#421272 Quick For A 1.25?

Posted by SeanW on Yesterday, 12:08 AM

Well this was a long drive to Manchester very early in the morning. To be honest guys I have learnt my lesson lets be honest we all put our right foot down sometimes

There's a difference between letting the speed creep up to 80 and hammering up over a ton.

If you want to drive at full throttle everywhere, then nothing we say will change that. But if are going to drive like a !Removed! - please give us fair warning of where/when

Suppose we as men can no longer complain about women being picky when shopping for cloths,
Were exactly the same when it comes to dash cameras

At least our dashcams serve more of a purpose than clothes...

(I know there's at least one naked joke to be had here...)

Absolute bargain of a price :D

Clive, out of curiosity - roughly how much do the Police cameras cost?

I've a varient of the F70 dual-cam. Similar to Jeebs i1000, but it has the more reliable chipset


Size wise: if you squared off a credit card, you're not far off. It tucks quite nicely up top, as does the wiring. It's barely noticeable from the outside, and only catches the eye of passengers when it turns on or off.

All in, my setup was about £40 (camera for £36 and about £2 each for piggy back fuse holder and 12v-5v USB adapter)

I was going to suggest indicators...but then I remembered - this isn' an Audi/BMW forum :P

#420138 Uk Winter 2014/15

Posted by SeanW on 17 October 2014 - 10:58 AM

I think winter tyres have the same effect as 4x4 to some people - they're like a cloak of invincibility, apparently...

I don't mind driving in adverse weather conditions - take it easy and if things do go wrong, don't panic!

Had 3 incidents in ice & snow.
1. hit a patch of black ice on a bend and slid into a lamp post. Was gutted...it took a layer of dirt off and proved just how dirty the car was lol (speed was 15mph as I approached the bend and between 5 & 10 when I hit the ice)

2. Going around a corner when a car started pulling out (he hadn't seen me, and likewise me -him). Bumpers barely touched
3. Spun out on a dual carriageway. The road had been ploughed and gritted about half hour earlier, no snow but the water had refrozen on the flyover. As I crested the bridge I saw a car sat sideways on in my lane about half way down. Went to change lanes (all clear) and lost the back end. Tried to correct and slid around the car - then smacked into the kerb. Dad just about sha...pooped his pants...me being me asked if he wanted to go again :D

To be honest, the night vision on the dash cams isn't all that brilliant. Even military spec kit isn't fantastic

Indeed they are, I see a lot of the same faces week in and week out.
Some of them even have a favourite cell.

Do you operate a reservation system? Could save time and effort with your regulars?
"Good afternoon, Cell Reservations"
"Ahh, yes, any chance No.2 will available on Thursday - from about 3pm?"
"Certainly sir, will you be requiring express collection?"
"Ooo...yes, yes I will please!"
"Usual pick up point?"
"Might as well!!"
"That's wonderful. Just to confirm that you're booked into No.2 - Thursday at 3pm. Your driver will alert you to his presence in the normal way - lights and sirens on"
"Excellent - look forward to seeing you! Bye now!"
