Re: Dash cam memory card degrading...

There are various opinions regarding cards for dash cams, but looking at various reviews/forums, the majority seem to suggest that 'ordinary' cards are unsuitable due to the continual write/over-write activity in a surveillance device - I've just ordered a Kingston 'Endurance' card for my new Viofo ...

Re: Replacing damaged tyres - Stick with Dunlop?

Wider front tyres will almost certainly rub on the wheel arch on full lock - not good for the tyres or the car.....

Re: Replacing damaged tyres - Stick with Dunlop?

It's worth checking out the online suppliers as well as there is far more choice . My last tyres were from Blackcircles - delivered directly to a fitting centre less than a mile from home and fitted at a date/time convenient to me for considerably less than I could get them locally... I've also had ...

Re: Keyless entry fault

Mine is temperamental when it's wet - I'm also having to train myself to keep my hand away from the handle area as I close the door, otherwise the car seems to think I'm going to open the door again and refuses to lock. I typically touch the sensor on the rear door if the driver's door is being awkw...

Re: Favorite Petrol Fuel?

Was the other car an unmarked Police car? With a radio. No - pretty sure it was just another petrol-head....I think the policeman just heard a load of car-related noise and decided to stop the next car that came along (particularly one with a fairly loud and distinctive exhaust note as the Capri ha...

Re: Favorite Petrol Fuel?

:lol: You can only get done for exceeding the speed limit. Nothing about how fast you get to the limit! :lol: Many, many years ago (when I was young and foolish) I got into a late night, city centre traffic-light 'test of acceleration' between my Capri 2.8i and an RS2000. Very shortly after we'd bo...

Re: Rear Camera

Tried mine the other day (MY18 with Advanced Parking Assist and the non-Pro ICT screen) - quite happy showing me what's behind at 30mph.....I'd guess ColinR is correct when he suggests it's related to whether the front parking sensors are switched on...

Re: Driving an XE in UK snow / ice

Hmm. Never changed tyres over on a car, how easy is it to do yourself or would you just get the garage to swap them? I know some independent tyre places will store the tyres for you (for a fee) - though obviously you'd need to check out how you're covered if anything happened to them or the place w...
