    I do like gta now having a vauxhall corsa C. The funny thing is it's called the 'asbo' 🤣. The back actual looks a little like my mk6 fiesta.

    The working class would have struggled under Labour as well I'm afraid... You can't just magic money out of nowhere and writing a few words in a manifesto is very different to actually raising the money in the real world. Boris isn't going to sell the NHS. But he's also not going to get Brexit 'done' in the next month... It's simply not possible. As I said earlier in the week, I didn't want to vote for either of them, we'd end up worse off either way.

    I absolutely peed myself when I found it on GTA yesterday. I instantly knew it was a Corsa. I do like that there's now a Mk2 Escort in the game (Retinue MkII) which will go nicely with my MkI. @zain611 You should see the unreleased vehicles that are coming. There's an old style Honda Civic (1980s) along with a new Civic, an original Scooby Doo (Subaru Impreza 22b), 2 Formula 1 style cars (possibly F3) and a new improved DB5 (JB700W) .

    Yes, auto-park is very impressive. I use it as often as I remember that i've got it. However, i think it chooses some very sharp turn-in angles just to scare the hell out of you 😀 I don't think i'd be brave enough to use the Mk4 version, which apparently does the braking for you as well??

    Very True 😀 I should reverse park into bays. Easier to drive out. I think i've started to do things just so I can use the technology in the car We do like to get our money's worth in Yorkshire. 😁

    Helps "Reverse out safely"? I have a solution for that problem that costs nothing at all, learn to park properly 😉

    Retrofit autodim mirror question

    Some of the ones I've seen look the same as mine, most though are round, so that would be a problem. The thread on here suggested the Mondeo mk3 one is the same base fitting and the mirror looks the same too? Maybe I'll just stick to flicking the lever.😉

    Yeah I just saw those unreleased cars. Think I'm going to go for the old and new style civics 😂. Might get that corsa also. What's different with the new JB700? I've kind of got bored with GTA as it just gets repetitive. I mainly just go in a public solo lobby and do my business works.

    FORD FOCUS 1.6tdci RE MAP DPF

    It's an MOT fail now... Some people get away with it but I'd assume the minicab MOT is even more strict. If you're only ever going to take town fares on short journeys it may be a problem, but if you're doing longer trips as well it should be ok. These use a coated DPF which is far more efficient than the old additive type.

    I think the Top left read out is your average Mpg over the trip and the bottom left one will be the live readout.

    Funnily enough I was just writing the same post! 😮 Over 40% majority here now and a bigger turn out than 2017... I'm honestly shocked after all the Labour support I saw on social media locally. I didn't expect a Labour win but I certainly didn't expect them to lose votes to Conservatives! Lib Dems picked up fewer than before and the Green candidate did so badly he's lost his £500 deposit! Also very surprised to see that nearby Ipswich (which was the only bit of red on the Suffolk map) has now been taken over by Tories as well... Genuinely don't understand how they've got such a massive majority across the country this time.

    My focus gives both the free shower experience and the free bath in the spare wheel well after every rain shower, two for the price of one! Heated front windscreen is the one I would vote for and would really miss. Everything else I think I could live without, but thats a lot to do with them not being fitted on my 12 year old Mk2 so I haven't got used to them, I have hired lots of cars with all the bells and whistles but never had them long enough to get used to it or even how to use half of them.

    Check your arithmetic. At present they have 159 more than Labour but an overall majority over all other parties of up to 80

    My car has now done coming up to 4000miles and on my daily commute of 9 miles each way on a twisty B road mine seems to have settled out at around 45mpg with the aircon on auto. I have seen averages in the low 50's on long slow motorway runs (50 to 60mph)

    New Fiesta running in

    That was one journey yesterday up the Dales. No traffic lights on that route, but plenty of hills, bends, tractors, dawdlers, etc so I did pretty well to average 40 for the journey! According to Trip 2 which has run from day 1 I had the car, I've averaged 34mph over 9149 miles.

    Cheap eBay batteries often have poor power output and therefore report as 'low battery' from new. Better to pay a little more and buy from the high street or a Ford dealership

    I don't like being stranded without a car... I'm sure most of you already know this feeling... Well technically I still have my car, but my dumb dealer (and national auto glass) botched my windshield replacement and didn't seal it properly. So it leaks water from the a-pilllar during rain Which practically means I can't use my car for practically all of the upcoming week Another reason to have two cars, maybe I should do that impulsive beater purchase I was thinking about 😂

    That's a good reason to go out and vote!. With the upsurge of tactical voting apps there's not really such a thing as a safe seat nowadays - surely there's someone you hate slightly less than the others - an independent candidate maybe or even the monster raving loony party! I've always been conscious of the efforts past generations made to get us all a vote (penalty of being brought up in a family that was politically aware), even dying for it, so I've always made the effort. If you really can't stomach voting for any of them (and I do sympathise with that view), then go spoil your paper by writing "none of the above" - at least it's a gesture. I believe in Australia this is actually an option on the ballot paper - dunno what would happen if "none of the above" got the most votes, though!😀 PS if we do wake up to a hung parliament composed of the same bunch as last time, I'm ready to volunteer to help with the hanging!

    I do have a genuine don't like today... I don't like how I feel I can't vote for either of the big 2 tomorrow for different reasons. I live in a safe seat so technically it doesn't matter who I vote for, however I can usually pick the lesser of two evils, but not this time. I've watched plenty of debates, including the under 30's QT on Monday, and I've got both far left and far right voters on social media, who make good arguments against each others parties... I honestly believe we'll wake up on Friday to another hung parliament and this election will all have been a waste of time & money. (Just to clarify, I'm not asking who to vote for lol)

    Can you cancel online or do you have to phone somewhere? I've seen something on Amazon but don't want to pay an extra 50% for delivery so tempted to try the prime trial...never done it before though!

    I've had this a few times - more than with previous cars - where people seem utterly desperate to pass me, taking risks to do so, but once past, do not get much further. All I can think of is that the Mk 8 ST-L is even closer in appearance to the ST than the previous version, so they think they've overtaken an ST and get some childish satisfaction from it!😠

    I bet it was a 1 series driver. If I were you I'd send the dash footage to the police. Sadly we have idiots like that on the road. At least you peed him off for a bit which is good and I hope he felt sad having to wait at a set of lights. Reminds of a 540i driver who used the left turn lane to go straight then cutting in front of me. He then went in the bus lane to undertake a few cars which stopped at a zebra crossing. Only ended up 3 cars in front of me at a set of lights 🙄. Another instance my dad had a 1 series driver cut in front who went in the middle of the road to get a few cars in front as he wasn't bothered to wait in the traffic like everyone. It's funny how most bad drivers are in BMWs.

    Almost forgot this but one great big I don't like from Friday evening driving home. The BMW driver who was doing a bomb down the road towards the small roundabout I joined. Obviously he didn't like the fact I had got out in front of him so sat on my rear bumper for the next ~500m's up the road. The whole length of the road both before and after where I had joined was 30mph which I was doing until I got fed up with him stuck right up my behind. Let off the accelerator until 20mph and just went along as normal. The short period that I was at 20mph passed a school and speed camera which at normal times is often busy and you'll never really go any faster. Obviously Mr Charlie Uniform November Tango didn't like this and was weaving in and out behind me until he made a stupid pass on a bridge with oncoming traffic before squeezing in front of me and brake checking me. The lovely person then flew off up the road only to sit at red light at the next traffic signals.

    Lotus-Ford

    I thought some of you might find this interesting - the historic partnership between my two favourite car manufacturers: Lotus and Ford. Duration: 1967-1983, Titles: 9, Wins: 47, Poles: 56, Podiums: 97 It’s been called the best engine in F1 history – and for good reason. For more than a quarter of a century, Cosworth’s DFV (and it’s variants) was the off-the-peg powerplant of choice for independent F1 teams, driving the likes of McLaren, Williams and Tyrrell to wins and world titles. But the team most synonymous with the engine was the one that brought it to F1 in the first place: Lotus. The partnership began after Lotus team chief Colin Chapman proposed to Cosworth that they design a brand-new F1 unit, which was to be funded by Ford. Chapman had high hopes - and he wasn’t to be disappointed. When the engine was finally bolted into one of his cars three races into the 1967 season in the Netherlands, Lotus proved the clear class of the field, with Graham Hill taking pole and team mate Jim Clark the victory. It was to be the first of 47 victories for the partnership, which lasted until the end of 1983 and included four drivers’ and five constructors’ titles.

    Things I don't like - the gronk at Tescos who hit my offside wing mirror with his trolley while I was stationary/parked at Tescos. I was sitting inside the car (googling something, was right about to leave), and as I looked up I saw him speeding through my car and the car next to me with his trolley, he didn't even attempt to slow down, and bang. Idiot didn't even stop to apologise or check if there was any damage and kept walking as if nothing had happened, so I blasted the horn which made him stop in his tracks. Got out and gave him a mouthful, and he finally apologised, I checked for damage (luckily there was none). Guess what car he was driving too? A typical ***** car (brand new white Audi S3).
