    Road safety: UK set to adopt vehicle speed limiters

    There is a lot of 'apparently...', 'basically...', and 'I heard that...' on this subject. Has anybody seen or heard official statements or guidelines of the planned introduction of this? It could well be that it is a requirement for all new vehicles to have a speed limiting function rather...

    G1 OWX on a Bentley Flying Spur 75 N on a Bentley Flying Spur WP59 ZZZ on a 911 GT3 Just a standard Guernsey plate, but the car is worth a post - SLR Convertible (was parked opposite a Maybach Zeppelin).

    JU57 WAX on a detailing van in Chelmsford, Essex. I see WAX 3D or W4 XED on an Autoglym van as well quite a bit.

    Uniroyal Rainsport 3

    As above, I've got a set on my S8 and also had a set on a Lupo GTI and certainly recommend them. Granted, the former weighs 2 tons, but aquaplaning is non-existent whether on tight B-roads or flooded motorways, road noise is acceptable and dry grip is very good. FYI, they're owned by Michelin.

    My 507 Coupe and it's new Quaife LSD

    Nice :thumb: Wasn't aware of that place in Burnham but thanks for the recommendation. As you say, the Burnham bends is a good bit of road for it's maiden drive home :D I had a beautiful Cerbera a few years ago and regret not getting an LSD fitted to that. Would have made it a lot friendlier I...

    Calling BMW connoisseurs. What is this car?

    Good God, the seller has replied again. The car is the 2315cc 6-cylinder 323i model. NOT a 1.6. Must be all that fresh Swiss air going to their head. Still, £25,000 is too much.

    Calling BMW connoisseurs. What is this car?

    So I have a reply from the seller re the engine discrepancy: "I've asked my brother to send me the picture of the engine bay and I confirm it's a 1.6 litre. The previous owner was a fan of sport's cars and asked to install a short-5-speed gearbox when he ordered the car. Then after 3 months he...

    Calling BMW connoisseurs. What is this car?

    Indeed, the seller mentioned it's a BMW 323i and 1.6-litre (146hp). That power output corresponds with a 323i so it really does confuse matters. Twin exhausts and quad lights on a 323i is correct from what research I've done, just a damn shame about the crap bonnet scoops. Low mileage so I...

    Nonchalant idiot Saab woman

    I live on the next road along, which has a 30mph limit but it's rare to see drivers sticking to the speed limit. I have to admit I have made one or two calls requesting that the police attend for a couple of hours with their speed gun to catch speeding drivers so I know the importance of...

    Calling BMW connoisseurs. What is this car?

    323i with a 1.6 doesn't correlate with BMW's nomenclature of the time, I'm sure of that. The seller has mentioned 146hp and 1.6-litres though. I will be asking more questions. Replica? :(

    Calling BMW connoisseurs. What is this car?

    I've got first dibs on this Swiss registered BMW 323i E21. Trouble is, I don't know too much about this particular model. It may be a stupid question, but is that black trim on the bootlid standard? I'm also guessing those bonnet scoops are not. I'm hoping a few on here will appreciate this...

    That's why the video ended so abruptly after I came to a halt, haha.
