    Limp home mode

    We took the motor out for its 1st proper outing today, obviously to get essential supplies, I just happened to need a supermarket a decent distance from home. All good, top down, sports mode engaged, wind blowing through my COVID mullet. Bliss. Until the last 100m from home, slowed for a corner...

    Carbon door caps

    Has anyone had these fitted to their Grancabrio or GT? There appear to be 2 options ,1 is inset into the door card and the other sits on the top. From what I understand both have the same part number so it’s just down to the fitting, at least that’s according to FD.

    Aluminium dead pedal- using one as a template for more

    I’ve sourced a shiny dead pedal, and before I fit it I wondered if anyone was after one? I can take it to a local machine shop and get a price for one to be milled. Let me know before a Friday this week and I’ll ask, if there’s any interest.

    2016 Sat Nav update disks

    I have a set of Sat Nav disks, 2016, which I purchased off here a while ago. I’ve installed a few but have since fitted the CarPlay system, so now surplus to requirements. Happy to send for postage costs and perhaps a small donation to one of the supported charities on here ( which allude me at...

    Aluminium dead pedal - swapping out a rubber one

    Has anyone changed their rubber dead pedal for the oem aluminium? I’ve managed to find an aluminium one today that’s arriving tomorrow, but can’t find any instructions or comments when I’ve trawled the internet. All the threads seem to be around Ultimate pedals etc and fixing with double sided...

    UK power outages 2 generators cause chaos

    The chaos that hit today was caused by 2 generators apparently, but could just 2 generators failing cause so much chaos across different parts of the country? Sure it’s not the Russians? Discuss.....

    Holiday let in Italy- any advice?

    I know that a few of you on here have or have had holiday homes / rentals in Europe. I’m considering something small in Italy as a different option to BTL / holiday let here in the UK. I’d be wanting to use it on occasion but out of season in order to maximise the rental. I’m researching in the...

    So called Smart motorways

    So for some time I’ve had this niggling feeling that smart motorways are just a bloody con and often don’t genuinely take into account traffic flow. This is the M6 today, for 22 miles it wasn’t any busier yet the overhead signs are set to 60, and obviously the speed cameras are linked..... no...
