Re: Tyre wear?

+1. Perhaps little exuberance on those roundabouts?

Re: UK Best Driving Roads

Yes, we passed through Corbridge but didn't stop at the Angel, next time perhaps. And yes, some good tips for driving in that area. We were celebrating a significant wedding anniversary so splashed out a bit on accommodation. We started started from Matfen Hall, then Walwick Hall, Henshaw Barn, Hill...

Re: Getting rid of 'privacy' glass

I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I can't understand the current fashion for side window privacy glass. It completely spoils the appearance of cars that designers have spent so much time creating and, as far as I can see, has little or no practical purpose. In an SUV, particularly ...

Re: UK Best Driving Roads

It's awesome Simon! Coming up to 3k miles now so it's loosening up and I'm starting to give it some beans, within legal limits of course. Amazing the way it seems to have no limit to corning grip and then punches out of bends like a scalded cat! I'm learning new things about it every time I drive it...

Re: Getting rid of 'privacy' glass

Can’t answer your questions sorry, but consider keeping the tailgate tinted. Like you I dislike the current fashion for side tints but I spec’d the rear window tinted on my 911 and like the effect it has, both in strong sunlight and at night.

Re: UK Best Driving Roads

Slight correction if I may Col, the Limit Point is where the two sides or verges of the road appear to meet, ie the limit point of the Tarmac you can see. You use the limit point to adjust your speed on approach to the bend, judging that you can stop if necessary in the distance you can see to be cl...

Re: UK Best Driving Roads

No Col, but it was a shame to see the burnt-out shell, still with blackened bike logos on the walls. A great biking road though! First time I used that route was 2007 when we returned from a bike tour of Scandinavia into Newcastle. The A1 had been shut due to concerns over a cracked dam that was und...

Re: Engine Oil Level low

Hi, I've got a Macan SD which about 8 months old. I usually do 6-7k miles a year but in the past 2 weeks I've done about 900miles. When I got home from a 200 mile drive this evening my display alerted me to low oil and asked me to put a litre of oil in. I'm used to topping up oil with older cars bu...
