  1. So, if you live on the top of lets say mount fuji and drive down every day and up again you could do thesame?
  2. mist = moist. aircon takes moist out of the cabin, just leave it on at all times
  3. The limit in the Netherlands is 0.5. When over the insurance is void but of course will settle third party damage. This will be claimed back, always. Second step is blacklist, you will be thrown out of the insurance and can only get cover at a special insurancecompanies in which all insurance companies participate. This of course at elevated prices and conditions. Legally it goes like this. For example you are measured at 1.3. This is a criminal offence and will be settled at court. Likely to have a fine of around 1000 euro plus a alcohol and driving education costing another 1000 plus a driving ban of 4 to 6 months. This for first timers, if second or more time brace yourself. All in all not strict enough for me. Could be simpler. 0.0 and loose licence for 12 months if over plus draconic fine will be ok for me. No excuse.
  4. sorry i was not complete. third party is always insured as obliged by law. so in case of accident the insurance company will pay out damage to third pary but then will send you a bill afterwards.
  5. not sure about the UK but overhere in Holland it is quite simple. a valid MOT is part of the insurance rules so no MOT no insurance. same with alcohol, over the limit no insurance.
  6. i fully appreciate why one would transform any car to ones liking as long as it is done with respect to the car and the engineering behind it. This looks like a can of old armypaint was used in the scrapyard where coincidentally some old turbos, wheels, and other parts were lying around. Just wreck the car and lets have some fun on the way. Below is what i mean.. ( but then again, taste is personal).
  7. I once owned a 3 series BMW touring and yes it was black as well.. I do fly a lot professionally and on several occasions when coming back to the airport i found myself trying to open a black 3 series that wasnt mine! Airport parkinglots are literally swamped with them. The car never felt like it was mine. Sold it after 2 years and the shiny white IS300H Fsport was always the only one in the parking. Such a difference.
  8. US prices Corvette USD 59k - Cayman 718 4 cyl. 59k - 911 carrera S 113K - Lotus Evora 400 95k - Merc AMG GT coupe 113k - Nissan GTR Pure 100K.
  9. You sound like a broken record Linas, i guess everybody on this forum does know your point of view by now..
  10. And neither does an IS250 ....
  11. Just dont compare the car and drive it as it is, a fine vehicle for people that get it.
  12. never encountered it myself but i know Ford has this with the fiesta and focus. There it is caused by a blocked parafan. This is the plastic box on the bottom of the frontscreen below the hood. This catches water from the windscreen and guides this away from the car to the ground. On both sides of this box left and right is an opening where the water rusn through. This can easily be blocked by leaves or dirt. If blocked the water cannot get out and eventually will drip over the side and finds its way over the firewall to the bottom of the car where it can enter the carfloor. There it will find the lowest point. Could be something alike this?
