    I've only dealt with two types of dealers in the UK. Main dealer where you have no real problem sending over tens of thousands of pounds or some little outfit that had no problem taking cash + card....

    I was in a country the other week that is let's say minimally 10 years ahead of Ireland in most of this low CO2 lark and infrastructure in general probably including broadband. A lot of it is science...

    Yes I'm aware of that. I always avoid the 3rd party sellers like the plague.

    I don't have huge amount of statistical evidence but it seems to me that Amazon has no week long economy shipping...

    Fahrenheit 11/9 popped up in my Netflix recommendations the other day. Maybe it was added recently. It's probably about 2x too long and a bit rambling in that typical Michael Moore style but worth a...

    I don’t even see the problem. So you set aside €200m to achieve something and by 2021 it will be gone... Ok, job done.

    I just bought something on Amazon.co.uk, let's see when it shows up. I don't particularly care when this particular thing shows up so no harm either way.

    I'm increasingly of the view that Amazon deliberately holds back orders if you don't have prime so I've stopped using them. I used to be of the view that Amazon is the only place to go but finding...

    I bought a bunch of cables etc on eBay a couple of days ago and they started to trickle in yesterday. Way faster than Amazon in any event. There's a reason why the likes of Maplin are no more.

    I think so unless he was just joking. I can't remember, it was quite a while ago and we lost all of his madness when Octane went off air. There were some priceless threads with him winding people up....

    It baffles me that garages would remove the bonus element no matter how tough the times are. Surely that's a win win for both employer and mechanic to have the mechanic doing upsells and do more...

    Because there used to be no way of avoiding it if you wanted anything decent. It's a lot harder to pay 1,800 a year for something when an identical looking car can be had with much lower VRT and...

    I think 528i went off and started a biker forum. He was a legend among men. One of the funniest if not the funniest forum persona I've ever come across. The online world hasn't been the same since he...

    You will need to start with some cheap [Android] phone because in all likelihood it won't last very long. It takes a while to figure out how to look after a phone and kids lead an active lifestyle...

    As the song goes, if you ain't got no money then you ain't got no car then you ain't got no woman and there you are. This is surely still true away from the Luas/Dart networks?

    You're probably right re the iPhone but that basically means there's little reason to buy one this year. 5G is about the only compelling new functionality if you have an iPhone 7 or newer. Probably...

    Stuff needs more bandwidth all the time. 3G was great once upon a time, now it's fairly useless. 4G is ok but on a busy cell it will start to crumble. It's not a must have and I'm sure coverage is...
