  1. Same same. Tried several password resets, clearing cache, and reinstalling tapatalk.
  2. Great thread and journey Bucketeer! Do keep heading South and West towards the warmer conditions. Gute Reise! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Very nice. Two randoms here too please. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. I tried to change a full set of springs on a w124. The amount of energy stored in the compressed spring was horrifying - enough to launch a kitten into orbit. I took the remaining three to a garage.... Springs that is, not kittens. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. It's a little place called Aulan, which is in the hills to the West of Sisteron. Lovely area. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. Missed the two for £25 as well. Stick me down for two randoms in total. If successful, this motor will be for my Dad. So double bonus collection and drop off thread could occur! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. Random here please. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. Bonus close of the vespa with 3 year old for scale. He was desperate to get in! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    The end of shite!

    The latest tesla cells are reported to loose 5% capacity in the first 50k miles and another 5% over the following 100k. There are taxi Nissan leafs with in excess of 90% capacity after 100k. It's only going to improve. As much fun as IC cars are as toys, as methods of transport they are dogshit. They are tiring to pilot, dangerous, skill intensive, expensive, polluting, and they have lots of moving parts. It took 100 years of engineering refinement to make reciprocating engines reliable. Mechanically, ev's are simpler and with modern electronics should be much easier to build reliably. Imagine buying a carbon fibre car that you can maintain indefinitely, easily. Swapping out the battery pack every twenty years. As a way to get to work I'll have a self driving electric vehicle every time. As something to drive occasionally for fun, I'll have mk2 1.1 fiesta. Please and Thank you! I suspect my two year old will never have need of a driving license but he may still have his own self driving car at 17, or younger! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
