    Porsche Owners Thread - If you own one or just like or hate them! :)

    We had the new 992 for 3 hours a few weekends back. Our thoughts were: Very well put together on the inside Excellent handling, turn in was very sharp Quite bumpy in sport mode on all but the smoothest roads Ballistically fast... Pulls hard all the way to the limiter although your sure to...

    North Korea

    It's such a shame that i the past we have offered many olive branches and concessions to NK and in return they just carry on with threats and provocative behaviour....how long can this go on for?

    North Korea

    Comparing Iraq/Afghanistan is like comparing chalk and cheese...the countries themselves were never a direct threat the western nations. North Korea as a state however has openly admitted to wanting to destroy the US and South Korea, and while it may just be bluster is anyone willing to test...

    North Korea

    I'm sure a strongly worded letter will be drafted once again condemning Kims naughty behaviour....rinse and repeat....yawn Trump needs to put his money where his mouth is and follow up with action...not words.

    M135i Replacment - £20-25k.

    Great spec there...surprised you don't have upgraded Audio...the standard speakers are shocking! I'm aiming for at least a 15% discount...I know some people on m3cutters have managed to get it so by the end of this year maybe even 18-20% is doable. I would go for the comp pack as well if...

    M135i Replacment - £20-25k.

    I'm in the same boat as you spam. My m135i lease runs out early march. Me and the missus have decided to use her new Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost until end of the year then I will be placing an order for an F80 M3... ...it's the only logical step up and around Christmas time there are usually...

    Fiesta 1L Ecoboost

    The missus has the Red Edition which is 140hp. Once the turbo starts spooling it does move along quite quickly....especially considering it's 1 liter 3cyl engine. Looking to get some mountune parts fitted and a Revo remap and it should be good for a reliable 165hp. It also handles great...

    Ridley Scott’s The Martian

    Watched last week in Showcase Xplus. Film was good although I found it very similar to Mission to Mars (apart from the aliens). Anyone else agree?

    Webcam for monitoring dog...advice needed

    Thank you for the mostly constructive advice. I ended up setting up my tablet with an IP Webcam app and then linked that to the Ivideon app which I have on my phone. It works great and has lots of feature including sleep and wake and motion detection. A mini dachshund only needs a...

    Webcam for monitoring dog...advice needed

    The puppy will not be home alone all day...for a maximum of 4 hours and thats only once it's settled into a routine and housebroken. The webcam is more me to get an understanding of his behaviors while were out. If he isnt playing with certain toys, or not going to the toilet in the correct...

    Webcam for monitoring dog...advice needed

    I have a new mini dachshund puppy arriving in a couple of weeks and I would like to get a Webcam to monitor him remotely when i'm out of the house. I've been looking at the Motorola range but don't like how you have to subscribe to the app now. Is it really worth it? I have a budget of...

    Porsche Owners Thread - If you own one or just like or hate them! :)

    I heard there is difficulty getting a new GTS ordered due to the 987.2 coming next year which is a blown I4 engine rather than flat 6. Why do porsche seem to not understand demand in the market for their cars...the GT4 being a prime example. My Budget is around the 65k figure. For that i'm...

    Porsche Owners Thread - If you own one or just like or hate them! :)

    Looking at getting myself into a Cayman GTS next year. Few questions: 1) What is the lead time like currently, i've heared it can be months and months. 2) Is there any discount to be had on a GTS or on the finance packages?

    San Fran 1 Week

    Me and the missus have not long come back from America which included 2 days in San Fran. To be honest we were dissapointed for the following reasons: A lot of areas felt 'unsafe' with a lot of homeless/drug addicts walking around It was a lot cooler than expected and always seemed...
