You sound like a Chav.
You sound butthurt, go troll elsewhere.
Passed my Driving test Was a most Nervous experience!
How many hours did you do? I passed last year and tbh wasn't really that phased with the actual test, though I did do an intensive course of 20 hours in 1 week with my test at the end and I think spending so much time in the car in the days before it helped 10x better than having a 1 hour lesson a week and taking half an hour to get back up to the level you left off at the previous week. Do you have a car yet?
I failed my Theory on Monday. I got 50/50 and then failed the freaking Hazard Test from hell.
Hazard perception is a crock of shit from memory, I didn't really get it, though managed to pass it
Thginking of getting a body kit for my car, and came across this one ( http://www.tuningshop.co.uk/acatalog/Peugeot_307__Euro4ce__Body_Kit.html ) that is supposedley "special price" though seems to good to be true as the kit cost is £215 though if you buy front and rear spoilers and side skirts seperately they come to £600.... worth taking a punt on? £250 delievered for a nice looking full body kit is quite good in any respect...
I don't see the point in having bodykit. Doesn't really add to resale value, you might as well get more beers.
I'm paying for the car on finance and have 2 years left, when it's paid off and I come to sell it it will be a 10 year old car, I don't think having an bodykit on it will affect the value that much. I also have a windowed case cause I like to see my PC internals, it doesn't add to the resale value but it gives me enjoyment
Thats your answer to everything ,and something we have in common
As a poor uni student beer is a luxury I cannot afford much of, hence the answer to everything money related
I think i did maybe 30 hours of lessons from having never sat behind the wheel. But it has been over the space of a year.
I personally don't have a car, but within the household there is a little green/blue E46 BMW 318i which gets BARELY 1000 miles a year... So for all intents and purposes it's mine....
Who Do you insure with? i need to get something FAIRLY cheap (not expecting miracles since it is worth about 3.4k), as this car isn't costing any money other than tax it is cheaper to insure it than buy another one...
Wow i scraped a pass on mine.... They are fucking nazi's when it comes the the hazard perception....
I don't drive. More precisely, I can't afford.
I did about 10 hours with my dad, and 2 with an instructor, and passed first time though. To be fair though my dad WAS a driving instructor and I'd been in the back of the car when he was teaching loads of times when I was growing up.
Don't have a car now though, don't need one in London, but nice to have passed. Was just theory + practical back then.
1 x 18 hour crash course (was 25 hours, but lunch hour each day, plus hour for mock test + real test on the Friday) I'm not gonna say about past driving; but put it this way; my instructor taught me to driving instructor standard as I could already drive properly. Passed practical with 0 minors, even my examiner said "if you were taking a test to become a driving instructor, I would be passing you right now."
Fantastic teacher, saw an oppurtunity to give me "more for my money" and went for it.
Hazard perception is easy when you know what you're doing - but the thing about being a techie is you instinctively think "I won't click yet, this crappy old thing will be slow. I'll click when it gets closer". This was the problem I had - kept on thinking I was more clever than the computer. Click as early as possible, and trust the computer
Just picked up a pair of these s/h last week. 450 down to 200 and as new - amazing bargain.
Hands down the best speakers I've ever heard. I've not heard that many top end ones though but I'm more than happy. Glad I took my time with this decision. Just put them on proper stands with spikes and the difference is immense.
just .... wow.
I paid about 1100 last year, got it down to 700 this year bare in mind that's fully comp/business use etc too so not too bad as I pay it monthly, the 3 series aren't actually that bad to insure, nearly bought one last year though pulled out in the end. Am currently with tesco, hoping it will come down to £600 < in April when I renew.
How old are you? seems to me your over 21 which means good prices
I did check compare the market with some fake stuff came out to £5000~ (WHICH is not bad compared with prices of buying a car) through some random ones. Might check with LV our current insurers could be a bit less considering my parents have about 11 years no claims each
Add 10 and you're there
It's nice you feel the need to follow me about, makes me feel wanted
And yea, I changed my mind on the whole body kit thing, seemed like a good idea after a few beers....
You're not a member though you're more like a sever case of crabs, an itch that raises it's ugly little head now and then and doesn't go away....
Don't worry he is a professional
He is a member
What have you done?!!
We've tried evicting him.... Doesn't seem to get the idea of the UK... so whatever
GTX 670 or HD7950 and why?
Can't comment on the 670, though I would definately recommend a Sapphire VaporX HD 7950 OC if you are going the AMD route, overclocks like a beast and can be had for quite a bit cheaper than a non ref 670.
I really wanted a 670 though refused to pay £300 card that is the same size of the previous gen mid range, so either way non ref would be my recommendation.
Asus DCII are also very well spoken of.
I think the cheaper of the 2 would be my option as they both can OC very well and match/exceed their stock big brothers with a good OC.
