Basically there to make a mass market for officially preferred technologies, even if they don’t get used in the best way (cf: megamile reps with hybrid cars that do less mpg than normal diesels).


#1382

Why not just have a subsidy system for preferred tech, that non company car users can use as well? And adjust the tax on fuel accordingly. What they have done is amazingly contrived now.


#1383

You mean like this?


#1384

Yes, but why then the additional company car system?

It’s a fine piece of engineering… but I don’t quite get it. Effectively, to make it work, the engine now has little in common behaviorally with what it used to be but I imagine it still has 1800 mile service intervals and it isn’t faster (in a straight line anyway) than an ‘in period’ loon device like a RUF CTR.

Bahahahahahaha.

Like you’d have a girlfriend :stuck_out_tongue:


#1390

That is quite county.

Not complaining or owt. Just like pointing out obvious stuff.


#1391

…err


#1392

I am sure you are smart enough to figure out what it should have been, and why it ended up different.


#1393

Snowfoam!..Guess what I’ve been doing this morning…


#1394

dial’a’car-wash? - when you’re ready I have a job for you


#1395

err…when I said to guess what I was doing, I didn’t mean I was washing it - fuck that, I was sitting in the car at the car-wash :laughing:


#1396

Exactly, if Jim washed it the roof would still be dirty :laughing:


#1397

…and the paint would be worn off the sides :+1:


#1398

I think that the principle of “I’m not buying an expensive car just to fucking wash it” is perfectly sound :+1:


#1399

Have you bought many other cleaning products :rofl:

It’s a bit like HiFi!

Yes, I do have a few, but sometimes I can’t be arsed, so I go to the hand car wash. Since buying the Panny, I’ve mostly washed it myself because hand car washes are nearly all shite. I’ve found one just recently though that does a thorough job, including snowfoam :ok_hand:
