    Cycling newbie

    I think you can do better than that. This was only £595 retail (so wanting £500 without warranty, first service etc is a bit much) and the group set has only got 8 speeds so you are going to see big jumps between gears. This is the same money (ish) and gets you 105 groupset...

    Cycling newbie

    If you are riding for fitness then riding on the road is an easier way of maintaining a constant cadence / heartbeat. If you are not interested in speed then using a hybrid or even a mountain bike on the road is good way of getting fit as the extra weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics...

    Most petrol stations have them but don't put them out ... if you ask at the kiosk they will usually give you a pair.

    As always, this is due to a minority of idiots stealing them during lockdown.

    Levante

    I'm with Andy on this one. IMO they are also not good enough cars when stacked up against the competition. I had one for 3 months and the Mercedes GLC Coupe my wife had before was a better car in almost every way (in fairness the Levante sounded better and the badge has more Kudos). It may...

    How long can our cars last?

    Agreed. I have a TR6 which you can buy virtually every part for brand new still.

    Anyone know if Prestige Installs (Audio) has gone under?

    Appreciate what you are saying but I really couldn't give a f#ck about whether this is a big install or not ... this is about **** poor customer service. If they don't want the work, then just tell me - I have said as much in my in my emails and voicemails. And regardless, they should be...

    Anyone know if Prestige Installs (Audio) has gone under?

    This is a £1500 install not £150 ;) And they were keen enough and had the chance to say no when I spoke to them a month ago ... but have 'ghosted' me since!

    Anyone know if Prestige Installs (Audio) has gone under?

    Seems to be a common theme. I would have thought that in the current climate small firms would be falling over themselves to reach out to prospective clients!

    The new quickshifter for my MV Agusta has just turned up so will be spending a bit of time in the man cave later setting that up and trying to adjust the rearsets so at least some blood can flow to my toes :)

    How long can our cars last?

    6,000 miles a year is good going and, IMO, what the GT was designed to do. There is no reason why engine and drivetrain will not do well over 100k without serious work and likewise the rest of the car. I can see me always needing a 4 seater and, like you, despite having modern cars, always...

    Anyone know if Prestige Installs (Audio) has gone under?

    Although it shouldn't be, that is somewhat reassuring and I know it isn't personal / he doesn't want the money!

    I keep getting voicemail as well. Let me know if you have any luck ... I will also give it another go.
