    The New Phone Thread

    Have you tried any HTCs? U12 is out soon. I've always bought them for years. Sense is nice to use, updates could be quicker but I've always been happy with them. And they've caught up to Samsung/Sony etc with the dust and water proofing now. I've got the U11 which everyone was underwhelmed with...

    They can be had cheaper, but not much with a FSH, especially local to us. £5500 seemed to be the going rate on ebay for a stage 1 - stage 2 car. Most of those screamed maintained on a budget or had limo tints or were bright yellow/orange/green etc.

    Lancashire Prestiege.

    The ride is quite harsh on mine, on eibach sportlines and some polybushes, but I may switch Koni FSD dampers as I had them on my mk1 S3. Sporty but comfortable, about £500. It's a bit hard to compare mine to a standard one, the diff makes a big (good) difference. As above the dash isn't great...

    It didn't I'm afraid. The guy I bought it off was getting a Sachs racing clutch so went all in and added a billet flywheel and a Quaife diff :D

    Oh and that stereo is shite, I'm changing to one of China's finest touchscreen soon I think.

    Lancashire Prestiege.

    Well it's not anything special spec wise, which they say it is, it's not got xenons for a start. All the rest of the kit you'll see in any Cupra from what I've seen. Belts done, which is good to see, but most will be at that kind of mileage. Seats look to be in good nick. Other than that...

    Afraid not. But when/if you go to view any check all the doors unlock properly, had 2 rear locks replaced on mine, boss's Leon had had 1. Worth checking for history of cam follower being checked or replaced too. I'm switching to a stud kit on mine so I can check it more regularly without...

    Bitcoins (and other crypto currencies)

    Yeah, I upgraded to premium to get crypto as soon as it was available. I'll use the extra ATM withdrawal allowance a couple of times a year anyway and hoping the airport lounge feature coming soon is decent. They just need some more coins, but that's always going to come slower than those...

    [Next Gen/PC] GTA V

    Getting people to actually complete the new heists whilst stuck in bad sports is pretty tough, only 8 months left in there :pensive:.

    4K TV's

    How much content will you be watching in 4k? If there's a decent mix of 1080p/i that may well look absolutely s**t, the 4k will look fine no doubt. That's why I've not gone 4k yet, 1080p on my Sony looks awesome. Even when the time comes I wont be bothering unless OLED/Quantum dot. If it's...

    New Laptop Advice

    Not sure how techie you are but if you ever plan on changing to an SSD hard drive to up the performance Lenovo love to whitelist. So basically you can only fit hardware they list as ok. There are ways round it, but it's a bit of a ball ache. I only mention it as I had a spare SSD I was going to...

    Had a bump (non fault), want to settle privately, other party doesn't

    I was seeing that more as a ballache for me, which I wasn't looking forward to, finding a reputable body shop. I was hoping to maybe pick up a complete bumper on ebay TBH but it's a facelift Ibiza, FR model, 5 door, in a less popular colour, zero available.

    Had a bump (non fault), want to settle privately, other party doesn't

    Ah I didn't know that, thanks. It's been that long since I've had to deal with a claim I was just dreading a big hike. It's due in a few weeks as well, typical :unamused:

    Had a bump (non fault), want to settle privately, other party doesn't

    Yeah I didn't want to sound too weird pressing him about sorting it privately. I don't think he was getting my point about my premium would be affected regardless of if he admitted liability, as I should be declaring a non fault claim, even though I'll effectively be returned to the same...
