    Re: Google earth your car

    i had a look but the quality isnt that good ? when they first released google earth the qulity was better, but i think they had to Downgrade the quality as there were privacy problems ?

    poxy firewalls at work block it, though was impressed with it at home.

    Never seemed to be great details on the area's I live in though, perhaps they're telling me something?

    I think only certain areas are available in hi-res (major cities etc)?

    Our street is empty of cars on the photo. Next door but-one have a sneaky looking kitchen extension!

    Re: Google earth your car

    I can actually tell the photo was taken on a Wednesday morning.
    You can clearly see the bright white paper-recycling bag in the driveway,and they only collect on a Wednesday morning.

    None of the girls in the office were impressed when I zoomed in on their homes like,especially the one that had washing out ! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Re: Google earth your car

    I've re-looked at ours and the photo must have been taken at least 4 years ago as the new flats near our house were built in summer 2002 and in the photo it still the school playing field!!

    So no chance of seeing the audi!

    Re: Google earth your car

    Your right they are a few years old... My sister has her old car parked outside so it was at least taken 4 years ago. So the picture looks like it was sunny and both my sister and I are at my parents... Must have been some kind of celebration... Mums birthday perhaps....

    At least I know what car I had then - Golf Gti1.8T
