    Ideas for retirement?

    Apart from car related stuff what would you do in your first years of retirement? For me I'm retiring from the technology business and doing something different, more musical. I'm guessing that it will be nigh impossible for noone to mention their cars though Sent from my XT1032 using Tapatalk

    3G/LTE router SIM card ideas?

    Greetings, citizens. We had a situation at work a few weeks back where we lost our internet connection for a whole day.

    Am thinking of getting a dashcam, but there are so many! This one has a stunning jet engine design, but the source look fantastic and the Bluetooth remote camera button you can stick on your steering wheel, to take snapshots whence you want as well, is a neat design. Clever, these Chinese...

    whats your ideas on modifying 190e's

    It's nothing new that 190e's are being modified and yes it's nice to see genuine examples but the paint on mine is so so and its bland and boring. It's beige on beige which is fine but not exactly shiny. So I'm going to do it all myself, paint (as its totally rot free) so I don't have to...
