    What would cause this scoring

    My Jaguar XJ is in for a service, just 17k miles and the inspection video has flagged this on the inside of one of the front discs. They recommend nee pads and discs (dream on) but it’s very neat and precise, I have had the car since 1500 miles and have not had any squeals or anything from the...

    Whitstable - anyone know it?

    Mrs Scaf has booked us a couple of days on the Kent coast later this week which should be nice. Problem is we are struggling to find decent restaurants that are not already booked up, looking for some local knowledge? Any help most appreciated.

    I went to a vigil once

    The day after the Manchester bombing I was in town and joined once of the many vigils, the silent remembrance and silent prayer was very poignant. Not sure what happened last night as I was not there, but have yet to see video of silent respectful remembrance. I imagine some people (and not...

    Classics for Carers 20th March

    Read about this event in the Mustang Club Mag and thought it was a great idea. They encourage classics and sports cars to take part and it’s the one show that the rules can’t shut down !! I have read enough on here to know that everyone is supportive of our carers and the NHS so why not take...

    Sportsmaserati Racers

    I have noticed during my time on the forum that there are a fair few on here that not only have race cars but race them, some are even building them. Although I don’t follow a particular motor sport I do enjoy it and it’s made even more interesting if I know someone in the track. I can’t find a...

    Carbon Ceramic Brake care

    Having just acquired a Strad which has Carbon Ceramic brakes, how careful do I need to be when cleaning? Lots of horror stories that they can be damaged if they absorb wheel cleaning products / car shampoo. Anyone know if how true this is. thanks

    New member of the Stradale Club

    Well after false start, I am the proud owner of this rather lovely Strad. It’s a 4 seater, low mileage example supplied by Dicky who describes it as “as new” . Arrives in the morning and I am rather excited :cool:

    A glimpse of my 1965 Mustang on TV

    Volunteered my red 1965 Mustang for filming on Strictly last night, blink and you would have missed it, but fun night out all the same. Producer seemed to favour the 50’s cars with all the chrome.

    Farewell to the BA Jumbo 747

    Aston Martin depreciation

    I keep looking at V12 Astons (previoisly I had a V12 DB7) but depreciation is holding me back. If I had bought a DB11 when I first looked I would have lost £40k in 18months. Realistically I would have £60k plus my GTS so all in about 90k. I don’t want to lose my shirt so discounting the DB11 and...

    Granturismo spots question

    Hi My winter protect is going to be to tidy up the front end of my 2010 Granturismo which will not only include paint correction and replacing my carbon splitters, but also to replace one of the spot lights which seems to be rusting inside. Is there an alternative to OEM.
