    C43 Performance Restriction

    Current owner of C43. The 20y old me would not be alive had I owned it then. It’s very very quick when thrashed. Having said that, it’s all about responsibility and trust.

    Is black box insurance worth it

    new iPhone keeps dropping bluetooth connection +

    Nightmare. hope they fix it. the point about talking and driving is well made. My problem is the work I do is critical and missing a call can sometimes cause major issues. I only answer handsfree. Usually while ambling on a quiet motorway.
