    Wheel refurb done wrong???

    amazes me in this age of taking photos of everything including your dinner that no one seems to think of snapping a pic of their mileage when leaving their car w/ someone.

    Airport vs Home Parking?

    parked at airports many times, never an issue. simply for convenience i wouldn't consider leaving the car at home. i recall one aspect of using a taxi was a spate of people getting burgled after banter w/ the driver indicated the house would be empty for several days.

    Licence Plates

    Just curious, do the cops not bother w/ enforcing these any more? there's a tw@ at work who's plate is literally half the height of a regular plate on his obvious attempt at a street racer, no way it's even close to regulation dimensions.

    Windscreen wet on inside

    had an issue w/ this sort of thing w/ previous cars in winter, when parked outside on sunny days - the windows act like a greenhouse so the car interior warmed up but the air outside was icy, so the air would condense on the cold glass, literally had to keep a roll of kitchen paper in the car to...

    Is Audi Extended Warranty Worth It?

    ta for the advice/opinions. i personally think - as w/ virtually everything from Audi - it's WAY overpriced. might turn out to bite my ar$e but i think i'll just put off and take it up if i start getting horrind noises from the engine or soemthing :-D

    Picked up this TPMS on the way home from the meet.

    would it not have been better to ask before handing the money over? looks decent enough but i wouldn't like a cable like that over my dash. not sure what the difference betwen "high temperature" and "overheating" is though?

    Motorway Camera Flashes?

    there was a bunch of roadwork, speed was 50 mostly then a patch of 40. i know they had the markings on the road to tell the speed but as far as i know those cameras flash twice as you obviously need two pics to show the speed. might have just been average speed things triggering? like i say...

    Motorway Camera Flashes?

    was driving on the M1 yester and in the queues i seems to see a few single blue flashes on the back of cars, was wondering what that was? i believe the motorway cameras flash twice, and these were fairly vivid blue and definitely a single flash. was crappy thundery weather so i'm wondering if it...

    Speeding on the M25

    i do't see why 70 -> 40 is any more of an issue than normally coming off a dual carriageway or whatever. you don't have to jam the anchors on instantly, you slow as appropriate.

    A3 Quattro blown up on day of purchase...

    glad things turned out ok, i've heard of buyer horror stories over far less things! you do kinda form an attachement to a car if it's been a good un, so i can totally sympathise about the feeling when the guy comes and drops its corpse on your drive :-(

    toyo proxes tr1 worth it?

    potentially stupid noob query ~ could that mean they might be dubious (ie, rubber degrading etc), if they've been stacked up in a storehouse somewhere for a long time?
