s2000s are great, only had a short drive but really liked it. shame they are holding value so well.
older z4 2.5i or 3.0i are cheap and far better to drive than a '06 nc mx5 (especially around the highlands).

do like the R - but that 4 pipe exhaust is a bit of a joke (especially when 2 don't even work on the wagon version)

Has anyone had any real world experience with Tesla cars. How practical are they, cost of charging at home etc. Looking at putting some money on the new Model 3 that's coming at the end of the year.

Kept getting asked to do some Youtube videos as I have access to some interesting content so finally filmed a series of them to release every 2 weeks at first. If feedback is good, which it has been so far, will probably do weekly releases.

The first video covers the pick of of my M2 from the dealer and the plans I have for it.



The second video covers the pick up of the M2 from the Essen show once the first round of modifications have been completed and some general coverage of the Essen Motorshow.



The third video covers the Vmax 200 airstrip event in my 750 BHP F10 M5 where we race and beat a few supercars Eye-wink

Waiting list for an order today will be at least a year if not more - they pre-sold half a million of them and none have been delivered yet. Only driven a 95d, immense off the line shit in corners (traction control kicks in constantly) and finish on them is piss poor id expect the Model 3 will have massive quality issues at the scale there looking at all in not a drivers car. If you don't need the space buy a nearly new golf gti and trouser the money for fuel and maintenance for your time in ownership imo

Nice videos. Not nearly as annoying as most people are on Youtube.

Thanks! It's surprising a lot of people. More to come yet too.

I'll take that as a compliment. Most automotive youtubers are annoying though I agree.

Was only introduced to the brand last year. Instantly fell in love. My favourite frames after my Kuboraum.

Anyone else with a Merc ever had an error message 'Auto Lights Inoperative'? Came on this morning (in daylight) and the lights stayed on. Read on MB forum that it randomly happens. Going away for a couple of weeks Monday and can do without the hassle of taking it into a dealer.
