    Modern Classics magazine ceasing?

    Sad news. Received the latest copy yesterday but no letter. Only car magazine I subscribe to and genuinely look forward to receiving it every month. Always gets me looking at eBay/autotrader as I am inspired. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    Granturismo (and Grancabrio!) H&R 22mm spacers for sale

    I have 22mm all round - looks (to me) how it should have come out of the factory. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    Is it possible for a workhorse & toy to be the same car?

    How about the e63S. A beast of an estate with drift mode. Allegedly can do nearly 30mpg on a run. All the performance, tech, space and noise you would ever need. Early ones (2017) now just under 50k. However, any car used as a daily loses its appeal. Much better to have 2, but even if they are...

    i like

    It does look good but £650 is a lot of money when it doesn't actually add any functions. I posted on the FB site that if they integrated the code used for this into their head unit with a UI and then brought out a large Tesla style portrait screen with the extra space now that would be awesome...

    Fuel in older cars

    Will additives be available to cancel out the ethanol content (similar to how it was when unleaded became the norm - older cars could either put additives in the tank or have harder valve seats fitted) Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    Father and Son

    When my daughter was learning to drive I bought her first car and got a Peugeot 1007. She hated it, sold it and got a Fiat 500! Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    For Sale - QP6 GTS ZEGNA

    All my shirts have shrunk, as have my suits, t shirts and anything that is meant to fit round my waist. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    Bentley Continental GT getting cheap

    Having owned a flying spur speed, the advice is go for a 2008 or newer. They were much more reliable. Serious bills regardless and some seemingly simple jobs are 1000s in labour due to access. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    2008 Maserati Granturismo 4.2 For Sale

    Not a car response but I understand your pain. I've had back issues for over 15 years. Unless you've been there its hard to understand the impact on your life. However, last year I had a spinal cord stimulator fitted. Doesn't fix the problem but provides 24x7 pain relief is this an option? For...

    Surprised its a facelift on a 2012. Mines a 2013 but pre facelift Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    I looked at those, amazing cars BUT rear seat space and headroom is appalling. I couldn't fit in the back and I'm 6ft hence I went for the flying spuur Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    Much easier on my wallet and I actually use both of them. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    At the time I had 3 cars. The Bentley, a Ferrari 360 and any piece of rubbish for a daily. Now down to 2 - the Maserati and the Alpina Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    Despite never using it, I'd have another if I could afford it. I exchanged it for an Alpina XD3. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk

    Something for everyone under 30K.

    It had a NAIM stereo (£16k option), massaging and adjustable seats front and rear, carbon ceramic brakes, active cruise, Bluetooth (in 2009) adjustable suspension, front and rear review TV and lots more. I really do miss it but it just sat on the road not being used. Far too big for a daily...

    Something for everyone under 30K.

    Another contender would be the Bentley Flying Spur Speed I had until the beginning of this year. The speed was the updated 603bhp model capable of over 200mph with 4wd and the most luxurious car I ever owned. Mine was an ex Bentley press car so was fully loaded with every option (£185k new) and...

    Something for everyone under 30K.

    The Rapid (and especially the S) is a strange car but I keep being tempted. I think it is a beautiful way to create a 4 door Aston. Not a limo as its length would suggest but a wonderful place to be. My theory is it was designed as a DB9 for those that needed a bit more space. Sent from my...

    Finally got my corona virus project

    It was the name that I was referring to! A Toyota Corona. If it broke down and the AA asked what was wrong, you could tell them it had Corona virus. Sent from my BBF100-1 using Tapatalk
