  1. It could be an opportunity to get in at base level before values start appreciating. That's if it is the right car for you.
  2. Heavily caveated yes, we need to careful about the figures are interpreted. Do you have a link to official figures that disprove those already reported?
  3. cute mink... nice
  4. Nothing in life is certain, so the saying goes. Generally you are correct but this new strain is reported as being more transmissible and also has a higher morbidity rate. Even though our medical staff are better at treating it and we are facing tougher lockdowns. @Buddsy Previous years figures we weren't having lockdowns or social distancing. If you look at the official graphs there is a strong correlation that shows social distancing and lockdown measures do work. You need to remember there is a lag between infections and hospital admissions and deaths. It's not rocket science.
  5. I know you won't like this but some of you BBC deniers should try listening to the BBC radio 4 programme More or less. It gives the evidenced facts and truth behind reported statistics. I may be pissing in the wind as some people will only believe what they want to believe.
  6. I just looked at that story in Autocar and the 4 cyl hybrid engine is due in 2024, so a bit of a wait for that. But, the story has a picture of a Chinese guy in the factory working on a V6 production line.
  7. Looks like they take their styling cues from the Evija as previously mentioned. The middle car has one line of lights that are quite wide. The smaller car on the right has two lines of lights that are narrow. The car on the left has three lines of lights. So family likeness with different accents.

    @BibsAre you allowed to fly your drone so close? haha
  9. Not sure who you are talking too as I've not seen anyone on here supporting the Chinese with regard to that. Do you think we are reliant on the Chinese? I don't. However, I do think saying the Chinese would release a global pandemic purely for the benefit of buying overseas industries which they are doing anyway is a bit xenophobic.
  10. I suppose you might be thinking on a bigger scale like the car industry, they've already bought Lotus and British Leyland (Rover) and they didn't need a virus to do that. There are too many other businesses at the moment for it to be a monopoly. The Steel industry - not sure who owns that now but it's not British Steel any more and it's probably not competitive enough to take it on board anyway. Nuclear power - Aren't we trying to get them to do it anyway? Telecoms - they nearly got their foot in the door. It's all a bit xenophobic and Daily Mail if you ask me.
  11. As the market shrinks and local economies take a hit It will be more attractive to do things locally using the newly created cheap labour than outsourcing to the distant Chinese. Local entrepreneurs will be quicker to react than the Chinese government in local emerging markets.
  12. China is very competitive on a global market. It was expanding and developing into a leading player anyway. Would it be of any advantage to damage that global market?
  13. At the stage you are legislated against driving the Esprit, the legislation will most likely prevent you from driving the Evora or MX5 also. Looks like you'll have to wait and see what the alternatives are when that legislation arrives. Always look on the bright side of life and make the best of the situation.
  14. Unless he is continuing to not pay taxes?
  15. Ahhh... So that's why it seemed to think I'd not viewed any of the posts. Are you sure you didn't merge the Brexit and Trump topics?
  16. You've lowered the car onto a telegraph pole to stop anyone from stealing it?
  17. China has been a closed society for a long time. I'm not surprised that they may be restricting access. I would prefer it if they didn't, but I'm not surprised.
  18. Like you say Barry, don't believe everything you are told.

    There is a segment of our society (Tory boys, and not all of them resign) who don't give a flying fig about throwing out insults and generalising about things whether they are true or not. And of course I am generalising here.
  20. Not seen the figures, are the deposits for the Evija significant?
  21. Is the Tesla Roadster (first gen or second gen) a sports car?
  22. The seatbelt on my 2010 is a bit slow too but I can live with it. I think I can recall a thread which gave advice about improving it's performance. Not sure if this was the original thread I saw but it is one possible solution. Seatbelts sticking | Technical matters | Back Room Forum | Honest John
  23. You have to think his visits to Putin's Russia and Kim Jong-un in North Korea were more of a fact finding mission for the wannabe tin pot dictator to see how they do it.
  24. Warrants can be authorised by magistrates
