    Are air tools worth getting

    Does anyone on here use air powered tools, are they worth getting and how much would it cost to get a basic but useful air tool setup? Would I be right in thinking that an compressor can also be used for paint spraying as well as powering sanders and screwdriver/socket guns.

    Alloy Advice

    Keep the outer circumference the same or you mess up the gearing and handling. Go with some 16 inchers if there are 15 inchers on there but put a 40 or 45 profile tyre on it.

    15/16 or 17 inch alloys for ford puma

    The Racing Puma also has flared arches, possible wider wheels and a different suspension setup. Put these on a standard Puma and you won't like the results, I guarantee it.

    Audi S4 advice?

    Try running it for a bit without the air filter, this might lean up the mix a bit. If this works then an induction kit will help. But this still doesn't answer the oil consumption. Are there any oil leaks? My boyfriend thinks that something like this is down to the valves leaking oil if the...

    15/16 or 17 inch alloys for ford puma

    17 would be too big and ruin the ride and handling of your Puma. A good friend of mine had one and put some 17 inchers on it and regretted it.

    Audi S4 advice?

    Does it still have a catalyst? Is the filter still a standard one or an induction kit? Has it been remapped? Does the exhaust look smoky it should with all that oil dissapearing? What grade oil are you using.

    Is the world going SUV mad

    They have a place. I guess people with big cars are looking for something smaller and cheaper to run around in but they still need the interior space and carrying capacity.

    Ford puma enhancemnts plz help!

    Induction kits and exhaust are mainly for sound rather than power on small engines. You could look at a supercharger kit, fast road cams or a remap if you want more power. Looks wise just get a nice set of 16 inchers on it and tint the rear windows and rear lights.

    TopGear and the Yeti

    Was it a review or just a bit of entertainment. It was impressive to see it get up that mud hill but I think all the rest was just for entertainment value. What kind of idiot gets a permenent tattoo done that looks that bad! I hope he got paid a lot of money! On your question about Skoda...

    Why do vandals attack nice cars

    I think they will attack anything but a nice car really stands out and grabs attention. Plus I suppose the dare or bet from their mates is more "exciting" when you are talking about a really nice car. I've never really owned the sort of car that would make someone jealous but I certainly...

    Are small cars more fun

    Do you think that small cars are more fun than bigger ones. What about if both had the same performance (acceleration/braking) would the smaller car be more entertaining and rewarding to drive than a bigger one. I think that we have to take extremes here for this question to work. Compare the...

    The New Nissan Leaf and other fully electric cars, are they the future?

    Cars with petrol generators are the answer. A petrol generator is loads more efficient than a Petrol engine in terms of power generated. I think electric cars lack character though and I really don't want to see them catch on. If everyone in the UK switched to electric cars how much would our...

    Parked under a tree

    I left my car parked under a tree over Christmas whilst we went away (which was a complete debarcle as the airports were closed/delayed) and I can't believe the crud that the car is covered in. I didn't think they leaked sap and leaves and I think every bird in the county has used my car roof...

    How much litter do you have in your car

    I gave my car a major cleanout and filled 3 carrier bags full of parking reciepts, crisp packets and Coffee cups. At least I don't throw these items out of my window like so many annoying slobs whilst driving along. Is your car full of rubbish or do you keep it clean or are you a tosser? (Am I...

    Poor standard of observation

    Today on my way to work the standard of observation by most drivers was pitiful. We were approaching a junction from a narrow road. There were pockets of cars parked up on our road narrowing the road to 1 car width. I WAS THE ONLY driver who left gaps to enable oncoming cars to get through...

    Arrogant sexist mechanics

    I'm not your average gal and am more than happy getting stuck into the engine so it really winds me up when a mechanic assumes I know nothing about cars and starts talking absolute crap. It's happened to me loads of times and I'm sure a lot of women get totally ripped off. I took a car in for a...

    How many cars have you written off

    How many cars have you written off through either neglect or poor driving! I've scrapped a few old rust buckets, actually come to think of it most cars I have end up being worthless and end up getting scrapped.

    UK Fuel shortages

    You could dry it out for us all and then all we have to do is add water! Prices are really shooting up. We'll probably be stuffed for £1.50 before the next year is out!

    Cars and salesmen

    If you have a salesman call at your home and he turns up in a big expensive flashy car does that put you off or does it reassure you? My accountant drives a brand new M3 and today a Double glazing salesman came round to give us a qutote in a brand new Jag XF! The odd thing is that I don't mind...

    Fuel prices in 2011

    What do you guess we will be paying for a litre of fuel over the next year? I think it will end the year around £1.40 a litre! Does everyone know it will be going up in January by about 3-5 pence a litre? Why was everyone up in arms when it went past £1.00 but now people are just not all that...

    Does MPG matter that much

    When looking around at cars I'm not sure MPG counts for very much in the average years driving. Is there a calculator to compare the cost of a years driving at different mpg levels? From some manual calculations the difference between 40mpg and 30mpg is only around £300 a year for a lower...
