Re: 2020

Oh and on the “2020 is a dogshit dildo” theme, I got hit by a car again last week. Same situation, different roundabout. Driver moved off without checking her right, ploughed into my bike folding the rear wheel and brake disc and sending me into the tarmac. Bruises and grazes all over, helmet cracke...

Re: 2020

In related news, DJ Adam has blocked me on Twitter. He’s emerged as an anti-masker and is spending his time there sharing COVID-19 conspiracy articles. We had a fairly cordial interaction a few weeks back but since then I suspect some of my pro-mask content has struck a nerve and he’s closing up his...

Re: Future of TOP

I was pretty disappointed when PCFF evaporated because it all felt rather arbitrary, like wiping out the entire history of what was a pretty active community (and the little seedlings of what eventually turned into my marriage) didn't warrant a second thought by the suits at Future. But we moved on,...

Re: THE ULTIMATE CAR THREAD

Haha not quite no, went for a 2015 2.2D 3 Saloon in Sport Nav spec, Arctic White. Yeah, it's another Mazda 3. Yeah it's a diesel. But it's only 1 owner from new, 40k on the clock, it's quick and it'll save me a shitload in fuel costs. Some might not get on with the proportions but I think it's rathe...

Re: THE ULTIMATE CAR THREAD

Honestly these days I only squeeze the go pedal for overtaking. I'm happier cruising around in comfort at 60-70 on the motorway and keeping things sedate around town. Maybe it's knowing that driving harder doesn't really shorten journey times by much, maybe it's knowing how much fuel usage shoots up...

Re: THE ULTIMATE CAR THREAD

Sold the BMW on. The further I dug into the timing chain issue the more horror stories I found so I decided to get rid. I looked at the Mazda 6 2.2D but (having done the research *first* this time) found similar issues with timing chains. It looks like a lot of modern diesels with timing chains suff...

Re: THE ULTIMATE CAR THREAD

Too late. Picked up a cheap BMW 118D (the 143bhp '07 model). Checked for visible smoke, absolutely nothing even when the guy revved the nuts off it. Hopefully it stays that way until the next MOT rolls around in March. Only thing I'm concerned about is premature timing chain failure, which I've hear...

Re: THE ULTIMATE CAR THREAD

You know nearly all of my miles at the moment are on the motorway, right? Like, 104mi a day. Are diesels really that much more expensive to fill and fix that the economy gains will be neutralised?
