Just something to note April next year the P11D for BiK goes from 16% to 0% for elecy cars. As an example say you bought a 100k Tesla model x or Porsche taycan 4s

you'd pay BiK wise

£0 year 1
£32 a month year 2
£65 a month year 3

great value that as if it was an S class or 7 series youd be paying around 1.2k a month BiK tax

Its a mix of emissions and how far it travels on all-electric, with the i8 from what I can gather its sub 50g Co2 and less than 30 miles pure electrics so it falls into…

1-50 g/km (electric range <30 miles) which is 14% BiK which is pretty weighty!

The BiK value will be list price of the car (not what you paid) so £114,200 x 14% = £15 988 per year or about £1332 a month BiK.

Just a heads up the bloke I sold my last car too said the mpg is in 30's not the 110 mpg they advertise - it is a complete lie and they should be done for that imo. He had the car for 2 weeks.

The transport secretary, Grant Shapps, said: “Green number plates are a really *positive* and *exciting* way to help everyone recognise the increasing number of electric vehicles on our roads.

Look at me in my eco-car and you plebs in your old fossil burners…What a fucking twattish idea that's just going to get cars keyed. Hopefully this cunts.

A lot of people can only afford 1k or less on a car its not like for most its a choice.

I was asked to design a kit for the BMW i3s which is still a really big seller in London. Should be becoming a reality soon. Here are some renders.

finally tracked down the source of a water leak in my 2014 f31. It is coming in from the speaker in the door which is stand alone to the vapour membrane, which seems completely intact;



i can't find a specific seal part listed for the speaker anywhere, but wondering if that is any sort of special tape/foam strips I could use when I remount the speaker? will need to buy some new washers for the door clips too but they shouldn't be hard to find

had a large bottle of anti freeze coolant in my boot. the cap somehow came loose and it pissed out everywhere in my boot and soaked through into the rear seats. from googling online, its basically impossible to get out, right? seems like i'll have to buy a new set of rear seats + boot liner, unless anyone else has experience with this?

Better off throwing the car away.

Its definitely not coming from the speaker mate, the speaker doesn't have any contact with any external areas.

Its more likely leaking in from a window seal or the drainage gutters and then just running around inside until it finds a gap to leak out.

i'm not sure you are right. window seals are not 100% waterproof and will let some water in, but the water then trickles into the door and then out of drains at the bottom of the door. the speaker seal/lining and the vapour membrane in the door stop this water ingress from reaching the trim (and then into the car)

i'm going to keep an eye on it before repairing
