:P:lol:

Have you gone for pulse AWD?  I have the S90 saloon pulse AWD R Design as my daily. Bloody lovely place to be on long drives and the ability to precondition the car to my desired temp, plus turn on heated seats and wheel and deice all from my phone from anywhere is just priceless.

Great fun in the car park when you switch all on remotely when someone is walking past. Had one guy spend 5 minutes wondering how an empty car had started and everything. He even tried the locked doors...

Great cars....

I turn off the active cruise, just have normal cruise in.

360 cameras are great, used the self parking once to try it out. Lane assist can be a pain too as if you do not indicate it tries to steer you back into your lane.

It's almost self drive and no doubt the purpose is to prove the tech.

It's a great cruiser. Handles really well for such a big car. But it's not really for the drivers or a sports car....

Allon White did a great job being the only official Lotus after sales trim shop they could get the correct Alcantara from Lotus and also the correct logo.

TBH, if you got 11 out of 13 that’s pretty good.

I thought that was a "fitness" measure of Ms Rochette. A la Bo Derek?

Went to a large open air Christmas fair yesterday. There was a chap there with his Morgan selling ‘Morgan Experiences’

As we walked past the chap tried to make conversation with her. My wife just pointed at me at said “that’s the wrong car for him, it’s not a Lotus” The chap then replied “Well until he gets one give him a Morgan experience”

”Already got one he will replace it with a Morgan in 30 years or so.

There, sorted that for you :hrhr:

After nearly 2 years of dodgy Wi-Fi that kept causing my Sonos system to disconnect itself from the phone control, today I finally got it sorted!:animier:

I’d bought Wi-Fi extenders to give me a decent signal all over the house but turns out it was these that were confusing the Sonos system.  After some fresh advice I finally invested in a BT Whole Home mesh system and joy of joys, I can now control the music from anywhere in the house and garage. 

Very pleased with myself!

I stick to my old Rega turntable. If I just play loud enough on the tube amplifier, I can hear it in the garden as well as in the garage. Loads of fun looking through all the old LP's, looking at the covers from when someone actually cared about how they presented their music, and the placing it on the turbtable, cleaning it with soft velvet brush, then the AM anti static brush, and then finally moving the arm over and letting it play. Makes me happy to listen to a whole side on an LP rather than jumping songs all the time. Great enjoyment.

Kind regards,

jacques

Thanks Pete - It's the light honey oak, the chestnut would have been too dark in the rooms. Lounge is done now, dining room today. Yay!

got so fed up with sonos constantly dropping out, I sold the lot and with the proceeds bought a yamaha receiver amp with bluetooth and a pair of wharfdale diamond 11s. Got those in the kitchen now and use old mk1 Ipad which is still going strong (just won't do anything else on line because of Apple built in obsolescence!). It holds all my music (or enough at least 64gb). The whole music round the house thing sounds cool but I never really used it. I also bought (with the same funds from selling Sonos) a Denon AV receiver amp which is in the Sitting room and we use that for projector/cinema but it will also bluetooth to the same ipad. Never had a single problem since.

Good luck with yours - I have now also binned BT Broadband - utter crap in middle of nowhere Norfolk. Now have 4g Vodaphone router with a £30/month unlimited phone sim - getting about 10mbps on average which is about double what bt were able to do - I doubt we will ever get fibre and even if we did, we are so far from the exchange I don't think it would be any better. What I really don't understand is how the router gives me 3-4 bars but my vodaphone mobile struggles to get 1 bar? Antenna power I guess......
