    Honda Civic feedback

    After selling my Fiesta TDCI Zetec S and buying a Focus Titanuim TDI, I have become bored very quickly so I have started looking at other cars. The Mk8 Honds Civic, 2006 onwards, has caught my eye. Lots of tech for the money, very nice V-Tec engine and a different look about it. The 1.8 petrol...

    Hypothetically speaking if Brown done a 'Barry fry' and jumped ship for a Championship club , who do you think if any , would be on his radar to come back in and take with him, i would say in this order Bentley Coker Timlin - possibly Deegan - could also do a job and has a championship...

    PES 16 vs FIFA 16

    Back in the day Fifa was awful and Pro Evo the better game. Pro Evo then seemed to get bogged down and Fifa came on leaps and bounds to take the crown. The games were better and the polished presentation was miles better and Ive had Fifa every year for some time. However Ive not yet played FIFA...

    Engine question

    Why are V8 engines only in the bigger production engined cars? Ignoring cost of manufacture, what would be the pros and cons of e.g. A one litre V8?

    Petrol in a diesel car.

    A relative has just filled their diesel car with unleaded and driven off chugging to a halt very soon afterwards. Is the engine likely to be ****ed?

    Engine diagnostic/fault codes

    Ahoy, I was out in my motor last night and the engine suddenly went into limp mode with no turbo and the glow plug light started flashing. Restarting the car seems to have resolved the issue and the turbo now kicks in but I would like to get to the bottom of the problem. On VWs this is a...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 0-1 Morecambe

    For me, a disappointing final league game for at least a year. Will have to satisfy myself with being an exiled Shrimper from 23rd July, but was hoping for a better send off! The game summed up the season really. Started well, should have been a couple of goals up, conceded an undeserved goal...

    Summer clearout

    So as we are now 100 percent looking at next season I believe a big old clearout is required. I am certainly not looking to start a big slagging off of players just an honest assessment of the team and where they as individuals and as a team have slumped from the team that obtained 83 points...

    South Africa v New Zealand

    NZ all out for 45, their worst Test score since 1945/46. Philander with 5 for 7! I reckon the Saffers should declare their first innings just to make a game of it :smile: http://www.espncricinfo.com/south-africa-v-new-zealand-2012/engine/current/match/567356.html

    Well I had intended on leaving this until nearer the time but things have moved on a little quicker than expected so here goes. Several years ago I was being all funky and surfing the net when I happened across an web site called TheAdventurists. Through my drunken haze I read about a totally...

    Scudamore Is A Mad Fool

    I hope you’ll ignore the sheen of cold sweat across my face today. I’m not ill, I’ve just been reading those interviews with Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore. It was a most disconcerting experience, rather like jumping into a cab and realising, as the engine roars and the locks...

    The American public have never taken to the showboating arrogance of Floyd Mayweather Junior, so much so that they tend to cheer for his opponent... Such was the magnitude of his performance, the watching audience couldn't help but cheer Pretty Boy Floyd resoundingly. In the build-up, much was...
