  1. Code Reader Snap on ???

    The best bang for the buck is Autel Maxisys Pro, around £1800 Snap On is a rip off for the updates, Delphi is good, but like MarkTVSsaid no one machine does all. I have all 3 of those, (well actually I have the Maxisys Elite which is good for access to some hard to get on line database filesbut you'll not need that unless your Techie is a flasher ),they are a good arsenal for all day to day stuff. As most of you know I also go way more in depth than just code reads and have around 12 different Dealer Level machines too, there isn't really anything I cant diagnose and fix in house, recently started EEPROMMING work too !! Yes, for general Car Sales work the Autel will pay for itself time and again. Beware of that Solus for that price

  3. For those worried about electric cars....

    LIKE and Agreed I was gonna say:- I would have expected my unrestricted 180 BHP n/a ZX 12R to have left the Tesla within the first 1/8th, but a bit of a fuzzy memory as I soldit14years ago My S55K is kicking out the same numbers as your Jag, and last year down Broadford Airstrip I left the Tesla well within the first 1/4, at that point I didn't have the correct wheels and tyres on it as I was refurbing the staggered set, so instead of the decent 275's it only had cheapie 245's on it, no bullshit the Traction Control was definitely limiting mine, but it still ate the Tesla A very recent Top Gear ran the new Tesla against a C63 AMG and a couple of other big IC's , their footage showed that the Tesla fucked off over the first 1/4, and after that it was only the big Merc that annihilated it, personally I think that test footage was rigged for media propaganda EV promotion purposes ................... I have driven a fair few C63's and they are quicker than my 55K, either that or the spanking new Tesla is light years in front of my buddies 1year old Tesla that we raceddown Broadford Airstrip last summer. Cost him an expensive lunch that did
  4. For those worried about electric cars....

    Yeah, sure, it can get up and go better than a lot,(for the first approx 1/4 mile), but after that, over the next 1/4 mile the Superbike / S55 Kompressor, C63 AMG etc etc will just fuck off and leave it for dead ............... That has been proven by myself and many others. Says it all, and in the real world as opposed to the "Fairy Dairy Land" propaganda However, even I can see the benefits of owning one if you live and work in / aroundone of our cities. But, as I used to regularly do 650 mile journey, Kyle to Kent. Average of a 10 - 11 hour drive overnight these days. 12 years ago, overnight, I did it in 6 hours 55 mins, I would never get near that nowadays due to significantly increased Traffic,IR SCameras, M/Way Road Works, Detours, etc etc. V8 S Class will do 400 + miles on a full tankat 80 - 90 mph, 10 minutes in services and you're off again !! CDI E Class Diesel will do door to door at the same speed (just) on a tank full !! .................... Serious questions, as I simply have no idea..................... How far will the Tesla go on a full charge at 80 - 90 mph ?? How long does it take to fully recharge ?? What is the real world (sustainable) cost of charging one ?? (not you can recharge for a pound etc etc due to subsidies etc, 'cos that is not sustainable long term), same as the free road tax etc, once everyone is driving these fucking things it will all be taxed to the hilt)
  5. For those worried about electric cars....

    The only way I'd ever consider being forced into a non Petrol Engined Car would be if I were allowed to rebuild an older IC Carof my choice with Electric power in my own workshops ............... i.e create my own Electric Hot Rod. I somehow doubt I would be allowed to do so by the time all this is implemented, so as far as I'm concerned they will have to jail me for continuing to use my V8's after they are outlawed. By the time that all happens, hopefully I'll be past driving myself around anyway. Oh, and btw, getting rid of IC Engines WILL NOT make a significant difference to the Ozone / Atmosphere ................. It is all just simply propaganda bullshit spawned by some know nothing wanker. Why the fuck should I and the millions of other Petrol Headed IC lovers be told we can no longer pursue our love of IC engined Cars, when there is in fact no tangible argument to support all this Eco Bollocks ...................... None of it stands up in a decent technical argument .................... Electric Cars are no moreenvironmentally friendly than a modern IC Petrol,they are just made out to be by morons who have been cloned !! I'm out
  6. For those worried about electric cars....

    You are dead right ................... Trouble is the tree huggers will keep making noise until the infrastructure is in place, the Govt will find the billions from somewhere, likely by more taxes for us lot

    This is an absolutely perfect example of why not to fit parts supplied by a 3rd party ........................ It also sounds to me like a perfect example of why the mechanicshould have a good torque wrench and actually get it out of the drawer & use it I actually think he is trying to tell us that he has a bigger wad than anyone else Muppet !! The only reference I have made is to the use of cheap parts ............................ Just another noob digging a hole, still hasn't answered whether I can go and buy a Car off him at cost with no profit whatsoever. OK so shouldIfit the 3rd party parts, with absolutely no warranty and a 30% increase in my normal labour charge NO That has been proved to fuck you over on many occasions if / when someone takes you to court, I had a good mate in the Transmission game who lost his house, business the whole lot because he fitted a Gearboxsupplied by the Customer which all went horribly wrong when its diff seized up and someone crashed and got injured. Judge ruled that he was the expert and should have known the part was defective Cheers for now, I expect "I vill be back"
