Headcorn Aerodrome picnic Sunday 24th July

If anyone wants to join us, just come along for some Zed chat from 12 noon. Plenty to see at this Aerodr...

Re: Electrical gremlins

Exactly the same as mine Gary, it wouldn't hold the charge. I couldn't open the car with the remote, I had to use the key. Another strange thing that happened after l got a bit of charge in it, was as l drove and put the lights on the mileage display went out.

Re: Z1 new owner

Very nice Gazza, I watched a re-run of Wheeler Dealers working on a Z1 the other day. They took off all the panels to re-spray them and also re-tensioned the door as it wasn't working properly among other things. Might be worth a search to find the programme if you haven't watched it yet.

I agree with you motco. If I buy a car now in the middle of the month, even if that car is taxed for that month by the seller, I would have to buy road tax from the start of that month before I could drive it on the road. Looks like a win win for the government. Just about to sign the petition.

iPhone 6 starts at $199 with 16GB, or $299 with 64GB.

Hope you manage to do the factory tour in 2016 Dave. At £15 it is very good value to get an insight to how a modern car plant works. Hopefully by then they will be making the new i8, we were lucky enough to drool over it at the start and end of the factory tour.
