    AMG GT R - Der Tag

    That looks menacing. Take it there's no regrets and the R8 is now a distant memory?

    Are EV’s really the way to go?

    I do miss it as that thing was a great little car but it just didn't deserve the boring trips I was doing in it. If I'd have had the space I'd have kept it. When I've got the time or can be bothered to go for a hoon I just go out in the R8.

    Are EV’s really the way to go?

    I've recently bought an used i3 as a 'hack' to replace a Golf 6 GTI and for what it does I can't fault it (school runs, trips to town, ~150km trips). I set it to warm up each morning before I get in and off I go. In saying that, it's only mildly fun and not engaging to drive at all, but that's...

    When are you going fully electric?

    The battery is small, I think this one is 33Kwh with only 27Kwh usable hence the good long term health readings. It was actually between this and an Ioniq as both have fairly small batteries but can still churn out 200kms on a charge, this came up first so I grabbed it. Most of them that land...

    When are you going fully electric?

    Got this for the daycare, supermarket, general city runs and I can't fault it. Replaces an MK6 GTI. Spec is pretty average (had to put the larger screen in) but it does everything I need really. It's surprisingly fine on the motorway as well so will commute into work with it when we're back...

    Cheaper Ceramic Coatings That Work As Well As Expensive Ones?

    Do these work and last as well if they haven't been 'baked' on? I've had one of mine ceramic coated properly but wouldn't mind doing the others myself if it's a DIY job..

    NR200 Owner's Thread

    I wanted to cram my full ATX psu into this thing (without the bracket) and it's been running solid for a few weeks now.. The issue that bothers me is because the GPU is so ridiculously big it sags .. I have bought an anti sag bracket but there's no space to mount it. Does anyone else have any...

    3700x Issue: Can't Reboot The PC From Windows (but can shut down)

    I'll have to try the Linux distro idea - weekend job that one, not used Linux in years. I've turned off all the stuff in BIOS - didn't work unfortunately. It does reset successfully from the BIOS though. This was a new build (used cpu) with a fresh Windows install. I also didn't know either...

    3700x Issue: Can't Reboot The PC From Windows (but can shut down)

    cheers - i did check the pins everything looked good. The CPU performs beautifully, just a shame it does this. It's not a deal breaker though. I did have a play about with the fast start / restart as well, it also happens in safe mode so yeah - i'll just have to live with it for now.

    3700x Issue: Can't Reboot The PC From Windows (but can shut down)

    Hi, So I bought a 3700x for cheap with a weird issue. The seller was reporting that the processor doesn't allow the PC to reboot from Windows but it does allow it to shut down. In short; he wasn't lying! It just seems weird that this is a CPU issue but he did say he tried it on a few...

    It's the 6800XT and those banana's are going into some muffins over the weekend - I will keep you all updated:D

    The Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Owners Thread.

    Look at the size of this thing.. seriously?! Last time i build something though it had a Ti4200 in it:p Ironically i'm waiting on my case and motherboard to arrive.. Looking forward to pushing this one!

    The Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Owners Thread.

    PSU is a Corsair RM750 - it's an ATX PSU but I've heard of people just using cable ties in the NR200 cases... I actually haven't built a PC in like 10 years, so hopefully I don't stuff it up. I'll definitely be wanting to overclock this thing to the max, i'll be on the stock cooler though, no...

    The Radeon RX 6800 (XT) Owners Thread.

    I've just blindly purchased the Power Color 6800XT as I couldn't get my hands on a 3080.. paid about 1k for it, ridiculous really. I'm hoping this card fits into an NP200 mini-itx case.... Will a 750w PSU be enough for this thing? Also, any need to knows with this card like tweaks, etc? Cheers

    Spec me: AMD ITX Gaming Build ~£750

    Thanks for this man, I can source everything but the GPu. It has a hefty premium on it, even second hand.

    Spec me: AMD ITX Gaming Build ~£750

    Hi, I currently have a Lenovo Y740 2070-MaxQ laptop which is not bad at all but i'm after something with a bit more punch that I can tweak and tinker with. I've been out of the scene a very long time and I've done some very limited research on what's out there. I have some basic requirements...

    BMW and M Power Owners

    Cheers, I'll go for PS4s when I replace them then. Is there anything else I should be doing to it? Someone mentioned there's an easy Android Auto retrofit but I wouldn't want to lose any of the HUD.

    BMW and M Power Owners

    It would be a lot more in Australia, Kiwis still seem reluctant to buy into the Euros as there's a stigma with high servicing costs. The Aussies have fully embraced it though and their prices are much higher in the second hand market (you probably know they have luxury tax on new cars too)...
