    Anyone seen any good number plates on cars lately?

    In Long Marston today, on an E63 estate. Has to be the ultimate load lugger.

    The EV fact thread

    Hybrids now have to have the alert. Our 2021 c-hr makes a (stupid) sound like a spaceship at low speeds on electric.

    Anyone watch Mr Bates vs The Post Office ?

    Not if the errors were being flagged up and then being reconciled manually. I’ll also add that in the forty years I was in IT, I can’t recall a single multi-user system that didn’t have a way to access someones account remotely.

    The EV fact thread

    In April 2014, the European Parliament approved legislation that requires the mandatory use of an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System [de] (AVAS). Manufacturers must install an AVAS system in four-wheeled electric and hybrid electric vehicles that are approved from July 1, 2019, and to all new...

    Anyone watch Mr Bates vs The Post Office ?

    There could be a number of reasons. Due to bad coding, there could have been reconciliation errors which were fixed manually, comms errors between the Horizon terminal and the main servers could have introduced errors, and errors within the system could have caused faulty writes to the...

    I’ve just skim read it so far. Aiui they are taking away the range anxiety if you need to do a couple of longer trips a year, by giving you free use of a hybrid. Might also be handy if you are on a restricted mileage pcp/lease. Edit: sorry, Morocco and Timbuktu are out. UK and Europe only...

    Anybody near Southampton?

    Agreed. That looks lovely. Great colour scheme. Hope all is as good as it looks. Edit: taken a look at the listing and that front bumper doesn’t sit right… Also looks a different shade.

    Clarkson's Farm

    Binge watched it in a couple of evenings and loved it. You may or may not like JC but he does put a great programme together. Interesting to see his thoughts on how upset they get when the little piggies die, but they are being bred to be slaughtered.

    Got this old Pressed Number Plate...Spaced as GM 514 B Any ideas to its origin?

    As @markjay has said, BAOR was British Army Of the Rhine. I remember seeing these late sixties early seventies, they were on squaddies cars that were serving in Germany - usually on a VW or Ford Taunus. Don’t quote me but I think they were exclusive to personal vehicles for the guys serving...

    Looks like an old BAOR number plate to me.

    Scotland Road Trip

    Apparently a more delicate flavour than the (rarer) Haggis Scottii Sinister. But of course, as the glorious twelfth is still a way away, it is close season and hunting is forbidden.

    Scotland Road Trip

    Yes. I’ve done the ‘NC500’ a couple of times on a motorcycle before it had a name. I think that the interweb and social media are to blame for a lot of it so possibly mea culpa. It was really good to drive the roads as they were decades ago and realise that it’s not just about the scenery and...

    Scotland Road Trip

    I came back on Friday after a week up in Plockton. A few things I noticed. Much, much more traffic than previously. Many more motorhomes of all sizes. Generally piss poor road sense and manners on all roads. Single track discipline seems to have gone out of the window. Especially from...
