  1. What about Jevvy’s, world famous oil bong? 🤔 VT
  2. Excellent! ISD - Industrial Sock Dispersion. Love it.🧦🧦 VT
  3. Great escape stylee, Stephen? VT
  4. It’s good gear. Should be fine. 👍 VT
  5. You needed solid sarking, Stephen (Google Menuiserite). I have it sitting in my workshop. VT
  6. I had to lease new, otherwise I’d have likely done the same. Test drove the 530e for a weekend and it was pretty nice, but a decent spec was ££££’s. VT
  7. Was in a similar position last year when the A6 was up for change. I stopped the company just ordering me another one as the monthly BIK’s would now have been nearly £450. The Model 3 wasn’t quite on the lease companies lists at the time I needed to decide, so I went down the BMW route and ordered the 330e with a stupid amount of extras. As it turned out, I had one of the first of the new models to be delivered into the U.K. Never been a BMW guy, indeed never owned or really driven one. Versus the Audi I have to say the driving experience is better, rear wheel drive and all that, plus whe
  8. Technically, he chopped Christine in for the Spyder. He had her and the GT4 in his stable at one point. VT
  9. Nothing to do with looks, it’s all about the drive with Tank. Having driven his Spyder, I can confirm it’s a lovely thing and probably more useable/accessible in the real world than the GT4. Proper fun. VT
  10. Speak to Tankman, he’s had one and now has the other. VT
  11. Interesting discussion. Having been precisely in this place after the 964 went, I tried and tested a whole bunch of options - V8 Vantage, DB9, Maserati (several models), Merc SL, Jag (R types) and of course the 997. This was to be a road car, never going to see a track, so it’s ‘at the limit with a bit of oppo’ was never going to be visited. So how and why did I end up in the ‘97? All drove fine on the road - A to B in a pleasant fashion. Prettiest was the DB, but I struggled to find a manual. Great cross continent GT, I suspect. Best sounding out the box was to my mind t
  12. Had a brief discussion with TB on Messenger about a visit. Early July maybe, if the rules allow? VT
  13. Do keep up, IC1.🙄🍳🥓☕ VT
  14. Gents, having arranged a bunch of these over the years can I suggest you only post if you’re likely to commit, otherwise the thread will fill up with noise and the organiser will be constantly trying to figure out who’s doing what. We’re all adults, so no need to massage BB’s ego by saying “I’d love to come but...blah, blah, etc etc. Thanks. VT
  15. BB, A couple of things. Track days are a basic level of motorsport, as they are both untimed and non-competitive. Competitive motorsport is on another level. I’ve pax’d with RB on track, driven behind him both on track and on the road including mountain twisty’s, and nobody I know drives an IB as fast and brakes as hard - though Jevvy come pretty close. I don’t know your driving style, but I’ll wager it’ll be a fair bit off RB’s. You need to have a pad that suits your driving style and driving mix (street vs track) not his. The car is the car. The brakes are basically what I had on the 9
