    Servicing costs

    Is that just another reason to keep charging you money though , my £700 phone has updates and they're free but the time put into developing them isn't and the computers they do it on isn't. Or is it like most stuff, it's full of bugs on release then they find out where they are then they scan...

    Are you worried yet.

    I won't be going abroad until this is completely over but i'm hoping it's done by next year, I just don't like the idea of spending ££ on a holiday if I'm restricted as to what I can do, I've got to wear a mask and there's a risk of a lockdown while I'm there. Some people were rushing to beat...

    Are we a wealthy bunch?

    Agreed It was probably the strip down that caused some of the electrical problems, I had agreed a sale prior to the electrical problems but the day after the agreement the ignition problem started, I wasn't one for selling something undisclosed so told him and unfortunately it was a bridge too...

    Are we a wealthy bunch?

    I'm really not trying to wind anyone up , I'm just being realistic , when I tried to PX my then running fine 4200 against a 25k QP GTS they offered me 6k for it. I doubt they'd want a 2002 4200 at all today

    Are we a wealthy bunch?

    I don't think there are many performance fords that are worthless Does nobody find it annoying that maserati don't support older cars , BMW, Mercedes and I'm sure many more offer cheaper fixed price servicing and reasonably priced parts as they're aware that the only way to keep them in the...

    Are we a wealthy bunch?

    How many posters on SM currently own a Maserati , a fair number are ex owners A realistic one though , half of the posters on this forum don't own one and are unlikely to by a chrysler in an italian party dress anytime soon

    Does anyone have a robotic vacuum cleaner?

    I've got a Samsung one , it's OK to go round and pick up crumbs etc but it's nothing like as good as a normal cleaner We've got a shark lift away and it's very good

    Are we a wealthy bunch?

    The only exception is the granturismo as it was still on sale until a couple of years ago and is still viewed as a current car. So as long as you can afford it and are happy to accept it may throw up a 5k bill at any time you'll be fine but QP and 4200 , £2000 a corner for wishbones , 5k plus...

    Are we a wealthy bunch?

    Considering my level of education , left school at 16 with some cse's I think I've done OK but it's all through hard work , 4am starts 6 day weeks ,10 hour days I missed a lot of life through being at work when I was younger , it took me 4 days of a holiday before I could start enjoying it...

    The end is nigh

    Maybe but what else will get you to 62 in 3.9s for 60k The new tesla model S is pushing 140k , if they can get 500 real miles out of it and that performance for 60k I can see them being top of the CEO car list

    The end is nigh

    If they do try and export them outside of China I can see the tariffs being very high If they get that kind of range / performance into a 30k Nissan leaf competitor , an everyday electric car with a 600 mile range , free tax and no petrol to buy They'd decimate the European car market

    Mum gave me this tonight....

    It's times like this your parents and you must've been thankful for the NHS I've been listening to a few Americans on tiktok living in the UK detailing some of the uninsured bills they've received , a bit of a shocker was a single item $230 prescription bill I also was unaware there's no...
