  1. Hangar 111 do reports and have found them very helpful
  2. Try to drive more than one 4 cylinder esprit if possible
  3. Chris Harris talks Cars with Gordon Murray:
  4. A Day in the Diary of a Audi Driver. "The other day I was cruising along as usual coming onto one of my motorways, which was very busy with inferior cars. First off, I couldn't believe that the volume of traffic DIDN'T slow down for me AT ALL as I came off the slip road! I had to squeeze into a barely big enough gap between two cars in order to get onto my motorway! The driver of the car behind me did realise his mistake though and honked an apology to me with a long blast of his horn. Unbelievably, I had to do the same again before I could get to the Audi lane. Anyway, once I was in the Audi lane and posing along at 110 mph enjoying the adulation that the inferior car drivers were giving me, I noticed an inferior car ahead of me which was not only in the Audi lane of my motorway, but was driving at a ridiculous 70 mph! Naturally, I got within a foot or so of his rear bumper and flashed my headlights to remind him he shouldn't be in the Audi lane of my motorway and to get out of my way. Of course, once he realised it was a Audi behind him, he did just that, but I could hardly believe it when he pulled straight back out behind me! He also tried to keep up with me and when he realised I would out-run him, he put on some blue lights in his front grill and urged me to get onto the hard shoulder so that he could congratulate me on my excellent car. Needless to say, I was eager to oblige and when we had stopped, the man gave me a piece of paper confirming what I already knew - that my car goes fast! Apparently he wants everyone to know what a superior car I have, so I had to take my driver’s licence to a police station to be sent away to have some points put on! (They're not free points either - they're £20 each and I was only allowed 3.) But the man at the police station said that because I drive an Audi it won't be much longer before I earn the full 12 points, and then I won't even NEED a driving licence, so they will take it off me! See, now THAT'S the sort of respect you get when you own and drive an Audi."
  5. Damn thought you was his plus 1
  6. I don't think they want to ban an SUV per se just the advertising of the ones that are bigger than a car park space. Seems to me to be the sensible thing to do as they are all getting too big for UK roads
  7. And I suppose he told Verstappen to go in for tyres because he knew he was going to get a puncture on the last lap
  8. Hamilton must be the luckiest driver ever in f1
  9. Speak to @ChrisJ he has a neat system on his esprit
