Topics I've Started

What Car?

30 September 2014 - 03:52 PM

Not the magazine or poor website.

 

Sorry been away for a few weeks work issues overseas, usual helmets thinking they are invincible on holiday.

 

My order for a 135M isn't going ahead as BMW weren't happy with gateway2lease discounting too heavily for personal hire plans.

 

Anyway, I need something with more.... ferocity in my life...

 

So the cars I have in mind are..

 

Mazda 3 MPS ( exact same speed qualities as an Focus RS remarkably, Bose Stereo and fully skinned for 5K )

 

Audi S4, because boost bus and refined.

 

BMW 645i remarkably cheap for what they are.

 

Mercedes CL500 again same as above but a touch older.

 

What would you pick and or avoid? I know the CL has airbag suspension which will probably start with a 1 and be a few digits long to replace.


Pc Help?!

02 September 2014 - 06:43 PM

Anyone on here good with PCs?
Trying to get mine to load for weeks now,

In short it will not boot, it goes to windows error recovery, start up repair does not work, it just launches a blue screen with the mouse arrow, using F8 on start up, repair your computer doesn't work, it does the same as above and every option below, safe mode, safe mode with networking, all go back to this windows error recovery and then it goes round and round in circles.

In short I clearly need to uninstall windows but how on earth do you do this when it simply does not boot up via any means and without a disc? It's 4 years old and win7, if can't be helped it's going to get run over by the ST but there are over a decades worth of photos on the HDD that I desperately want to keep, anyway of getting these off? Don't care for the laptop just the files on there.

Reversing Camera

01 September 2014 - 11:33 AM

Anyone on here got this? on Titanium Perhaps.

 

Am I right in thinking you have to Sat Nav + Sony DAB to have this?

 

Just thinking as there is one in the Breakers near me that's been smashed to bit's in the front and it could still well work and it's a 13 plate so software should be the same ( Should be ) and I could strip it out from the camera backwards to get what I need.

 

Just unsure what screen it operates from.


Time To Go???

18 August 2014 - 12:16 PM

Well, my dream Hatch has become available on lease again,

 

I can now get a BMW M135I for £279PM inc VAT on 12K per year, seems a stupidly good deal for a £32K 360BHP hatchback, Deposit £1400 odd.

 

What think, worth ditching the Fez for?


Argument At Work St3 Owner Required

15 August 2014 - 03:33 PM

Afternoon All,

 

Can I please ask for an ST3 owner for some help please.

 

Could you kindly put Cruise on with AC off @ 70MPH with the windows down and let me know what the MPG figure is,

 

And then repeat with the windows up but AC on at the same speed.

 

Had bit of a row today over which uses more fuel, can't test myself as no cruise / pauper spec car.
