    Is Pistonheads classifieds dying?

    Oh god yeah, the errors in the buyers guides and reviews, plus the total lack of proofreading.... it's embarrassing. Just stinks of the whole thing being run on a shoestring to pull in the advertising $$$

    Is Pistonheads classifieds dying?

    I've had some success on there, but yeah I have a free classifieds account too. I'd check it for specialist stuff, think I might have seen the Zenos there originally but can't remember. Honestly the whole site is a shadow of itself now, the forums have a worse sound to noise ratio than ever...

    The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]

    For 1440p gaming, 100% unless you really want to use the RTX stuff. Apparently it's less clear cut at 4k. It's moot point because you can't buy any of them anyway. :ROFLMAO:

    This is currently in stock at eBuyer but god knows for how long, if £1630 for a graphics card is your thing ;) https://www.ebuyer.com/1121305-zotac-geforce-rtx-3090-24gb-gddr6x-trinity-ampere-graphics-card-zt-a30900d-10p

    The Apple Watch Thread

    I think you’ve scrolled too far and gone into the design studio for the Nike watches. Click save and you’re sorted...

    The Apple Watch Thread

    I’d scroll down until you get to the “design studio” and use that, I found it much easier than mucking around with their other options.

    Programming Careers

    Matlab? Don‘t say that to me, I still get cold sweats from the memory of trying to get the effing thing to model the pumping of a heart back at uni. Maybe it’s improved since then, it was 28 years ago. Sob.

    Programming Careers

    I'd say any programming job you're likely to get given a coding task of some sort during the interview process, it's more about hopefully proving you have the skills. You won't have direct commercial experience so no point in faking it. What course are you using out of interest? I could do with...

    The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]

    Me six months ago: Why the hell have I got all these network cables, it's not like I'm ever going to use all of them, I'll just hang onto a few. Me today: Ahhhhh...... b****cks........

    Fitting lightweight battery

    It does depend where you’re at with the car. IMO I won’t notice 10kg of weight off the body of an 800-900kg car, it’s only going to be genuinely useful when racing. Where I might really notice it is when reducing unsprung weight, which primarily means wheels and tyres. It’s almost a fetish to...

    Fitting lightweight battery

    I thought about it back when I had my 182, but IMO you'd have to have the car completely sorted elsewhere, have moved on to a serious weight saving plan and be chasing every tenth of a second to make it worthwhile. I do get it, why lug around a heavy battery you don't need, but £100 is still a...

    Alpina D3 Bi Turbo F31 Touring

    For the performance which is available in such a big car that's brilliant MPG. Can't imagine the utter contempt it must treat UK motorway speeds with.

    The Apple Watch Thread

    Normally I’d say apple refurb too, but the pricing is nonsense at the moment. An SE is a better deal, or if you want a really cheap one a series 3. Amazon is only 100% safe if buying direct from Amazon IMO, although they will at least make sure you get your money back if it turns out you bought...

    The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]

    I still love all this s**t, but I do find it funny when people complain of difficulties in gaming at 4k 60FPS.... this was my first PC 3D graphics card :ROFLMAO: Perspective is everything ;)

    The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]

    Looks like pretty much everyone likes the 3080. I was tempted, until I remembered I'm not really troubling my 1080 at the moment so what's the point :ROFLMAO: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/09/nvidia-rtx-3080-review-4k-greatness-at-699-and-good-news-for-cheaper-gpus/

    DS1.11 overheating

    Fake pads maybe? It's getting to be a bigger and bigger problem apparently. Do you still have the packaging? https://www.ferodo.co.uk/support/light-vehicles/anti-counterfeit.html

    My new ‘Meglio’

    Very tidy, looks like a properly clean install too. They are epic fun.

    We call the really shitty jobs "Ideal learning opportunities", sometimes newbies fall for that.

    Alpina D3 Bi Turbo F31 Touring

    Jesus. It can't be that hard. So they build it up from a bare block - fine, strip the existing crate engine down to a bare block and use the Alpina engine builder's process to build it up from that stage then?! Sounds like a lot of people sucking their teeth and thinking "mmmm, no, we don't...

    Alpina D3 Bi Turbo F31 Touring

    Personally I’d be holding out for the new engine too, especially if I was smoking around in a decent courtesy car while waiting. I’d expect it to make the car more valuable (or at least to fend off any further depreciation for a good while) and it adds to the story of the car too. Plus, it’s a...

    Ah that explains it then. Nice!

    Alpina D3 Bi Turbo F31 Touring

    That's really odd, the Alpina parts catalogue for the F10 D5 doesn't list the oil pump or cooling jets as being Alpina parts, so in theory they should just be the standard BMW items.

    One of, if not the worst S3 I’ve ever seen

    I know it's tragic, and it's only a joke, but I'm bothered by the fact he took the sticker off the S200 but didn't comment that it's not on the right wheels. :ROFLMAO: Also that S3 proves the old saying that you can't polish a turd but you can cover it in glitter.

    ARB + 15s and body roll

    Completely agree with what's already been said, but what I will add is the whiteline RARB made the car much more fun on track IMO. It didn't necessarily make me faster, but it made me smile. For the money I'd certainly have one again if I had a 1*2, once I'd made sure the shocks and bushes were...

    Track Tyres - Feedback and Recommendations

    On a track day you'll often just never know how much of it is great driving and how much is the car. You can have the most mundane looking things out there which are serious bits of kit under the skin, equally you can have mundane looking things which are just being driven really well. At the...
