    Shocking

    Am aware of team orders, but am absolutely disgusted at the way Norris was treated on todays Hungarian Gp. 6+ seconds infront and forced to hand over the lead to his team-mate who was blatantly slower. What happens to all those that placed a bet on a Norris win, i did not so its not sour grapes. If you can win then you win, soured my whole season, especially with Verstappen trying to take Hamilton out. I've turned the telly off.

    Stereo randomly turns itself off & on.

    Has anyone ever had this problem before ?  Stereo just randomly turns itself off & on when it pleases, it's not all the time like  Saying that it sounds like the missus  So it could turn off after being on for just ten minutes or being on for two hours with it being unable to be turned back on no matter what we try, be it by button or ignition keys, then it might be half hour of being on and it turns off, maybe for 5 minutes at the most it kinda plays dead  Then it will work continuousl

    Sync 2 Updates (not map updates)

    Hi, I think this has come up once or twice in the past. i have a 2016 mondeo with sync2.  Sync 2 is ok but has its flaws.  Logic in the sat nav being one. I don’t think the software has ever been updated.  Surely Ford must have released an update (bug fixes etc) at some point? when I attach a usb cable to the car, from my phone, the phone says “there is an update for your computer “.  If I select to update it gives a usb error and turns the radio on (bizarrely). Has anyone in

      Had a Dash Cam, still do, unfortunately it is powered down. My reason is that the Ka Mk2 I have has an interior with the structural integrity of dust. Started to use the prying tool for the wiring and knew that if I carried on I'd be driving in an empty biscuit tin with some rubber mats. So I had the radical idea of leaving the dead camera up, my 'dashcam on board' sign in the rear window and see what happened. And I have to say, not much. People ignore the sign just the same as always and drive past like a Cheetah with a bum full of dynamite. I have a theory why, but that's for another thread.

      As I said before, I wasn't being sarcastic.   Use the search bar, at the top:     ... if you wrap the search term in in quotes, you'll narrow the hits, as it'll return hits that include all of the words, within the quotes. I hope this is of help.

      Being new to this forum, I'm not sure where to look for particular posts.. so assumed it was easier to start a new post and get people's person opinions rather than telling me to look within this site.  If people could tell me where to look and search id be grateful, rather than sarcastic replies telling me to look within.

      Beautiful work. Was in a model club years ago. The guy who ran it made diaramas for which got onto the covers of Airfix magazine. One of his best ones was a group of German infantry soldiers in a bombed out house around a lit stove. He used a modelling saw and milliput to reshape arms and legs. A guy lighting a cigarette doesn't sound like much, but when your 12 it was genius. He also got commissioned to make replicas of peoples motorbikes, like to the nearest carbon scoring and dent. One thing he did do was put small bolts through the tyres. This way he could give the model the appearance of weight. No such thing as a perfectly round tyre. He passed a few years ago, but I went on to do nothing more than paint D and D figures. But keep the faith, all power to your capillary action glue.

      Totally agree. I was one for 3 months, 530iSE. It tried to kill me twice and ended up turning its automatic transmission into a bucket of grey sludge as it exploded on the A1 next to the Metro Centre Gateshead and lifted me 2 feet off the road slamming me into limp mode and making me amazingly popular with many Geordies. Was in a Ford Focus Ghia 1.8 a week later. Had her 15 years. On the upside I have a totally legitimate reason for hating Beemers. (Oh and the inside of a G plate BMW had all the class of a cut in half wheelie bin that had been covered in glue and kicked through a Russian tractor scrapyard. Worst decision, car wise, I ever made.)
