  1. I'm not sure there are any dashcams that will run off of a 5v USB port, not enough ampage. Most are designed to use 12v.
  2. Esso do a 99, tesco momentum, BP ultimate or vpower. Otherwise I'd take a 25l Jerry can and pick some up in your electric car. That would be funny Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  3. Its not like adding octain booster to the tank. One of the main disadvantages of ethanol is that it pulls in water from the atmosphere. This can then rust older cars tanks, and pull through the fuel system. I think the hoses will be OK but ethanol also causes some of the older hoses to expand, seals to split etc. It can also damage the engine if used too often. As the Z is not used that often I wouldnt risk it. Stick with premium E5
  4. I think battery powered vehicles are a stop gap to something else unknown, which could be hydrogen. We, as a country are not setup for the power draw. You only have to look at the news now to see that we have lost one power station (6 months to get back) and we still get 60% of power from burning gas..... Then you have to consider the lifespan and recycling of the batteries and what happens if they catch fire in an accident. Tesla recommend not moving the vehicle for 3 days, as this is how long the batteries can burn for. I dont actually think the range thing is overly relevant, for me anyway. I only get 200-300 miles out of a tank before I have to refill. The issue is how long this can take and the amount of charge points. If I run out of fuel I can get a 5l container of fuel (AA, RAC or myself) and be on my way. You cant just do this with an electric car. If you out, you're out. There is also the draw when the vehicle is standing. Go on holiday for 2 weeks with a small charge left and the car can be dead when you get back. You just have to plan a lot more with electric currently. I'm also not in favour of hybrid. You're either lugging heavy batteries with a small engine or pulling extra weight with batteries, just doesnt work
  5. Check out amayama if you're buying new Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  6. That's crappy buy I'd have a go at fixing that myself. A little superglue and baking soda will bond the plastic, file the resulting joing and you'd never know. Mirror is easy enough to replace, just leaves the cover. Which you may be able to rectify with a cutting polish or even replace with some carbon. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  7. Can someone PM me the Price please. I canna remember/find it and need to pay.
  8. Its also worth noting that this will only effect RON95 fuel, premium fuels will remain untouched.
  9. Unless there is an even spread and the groups split.
  10. Neil, which course are you looking at booking this time, as this will impact who is likely to attend. I will be interested depending on the Course you're looking at
  11. Try Horsham or Abbey motorsports. They may br able to make one up. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  12. Mine ran decats. Made it a little louder but not overly. Chas removed his rear silencers as well. That's why his is so loud
  13. We drink a LOT of milk.

  15. Had to buy some milk on the way home. Parked up and boom.... Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  16. Its on my list John. I'll report back as soon as Ive got something
  17. Love to have seen your face when you saw it was litchfield on the phone. Glad its not too expensive a fix Neil and by the sounds of it, it looked like it needed replacing anyway. Interesting that a potential boost leak has cause the gearbox to error though.
  18. So, whats the verdict? I have read that some have had the same issue when hitting a large pothole. TCM reset sorted them out though. I hope its not anything too serious though, but if I had an issue with my gearbox I'd try Andy at ACSpeedtech up in Warrington. From what I've read he's a genius.
  19. I'll have a look into it.. UPDATE: I've quickly added something
  20. I've also read you can insert it in the fob holder around 10 times to get the car to register with it. Apparently the indicated will flash once its done. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  21. I've averaged over 120mph over those particular set of corners. Many moons ago
  22. Permissions issue, which I have now rectified. Can you try again please @vjordon
