    The new web site is wank, the old one worked perfectly and the new one just sits there doing nothing, people pay to have their adverts on the site and you can't even see them!

    Most of the time when you press "update results" it just sits there and does nothing, so you spent all that time filling in the search criteria for nothing, how can they be so thick to leave a site up that doesnt work properly!?

    I didnt realise it had changed, so thought I'd go and take a look. I waited a couple of minutes for it to load after clicking "buy" and it still hadnt loaded. I won't be using it for a while

    Form over function doesnt work with websites!

    Totally agree Bong it is total poo.

    Why do people have to change things that work perfectly fine?

    Anyway Bong I thought you had shares in Autotrader the amount of buying and selling of cars that you do he he.

    Yep things have changed my end so I know longer need four doors or a car to do family duties. I want to get a dedicated track car and the running costs of a Civic is pretty appealing. Plus I love the big H.

    I've currently got an RX8 which is up for sale and once that has shifted I'm going to spend upto around
  12. Bong Guest

    Cool what do you think of the RX8? Is it as bad on fuel and as unreliable as they say!? I've always liked the look of them and i'm the opposite to you at the mo i'm seriously bored of Honda
  13. Vtec Accord Club Member ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    The RX8 is a great car and doesn't (well mine doesn't) drink excessive amounts of oil but the MPG isn't that great.

    All the power is right at the top of the rev range but you'd be used to that anyway. Its feels really slow to me ( i have the 192hp version) but i'm coming off the back of two previous cars which ran in excess of 300hp and 300lbs torque.

    You have to always let the car warm up before turning it off, there is a procedure to follow if you turn it off when its not warmed up. Failure to do either of these two things will result in the engine flooding. Then there are a set of 3 procedures to follow if this happens and one of the 3 should rectify it.

    Apart from that a great car. 7.5/10 i'd give it.

  14. Bong Guest

    Cool, was shocked to see how much they are going for at the moment
  15. Vtec Accord Club Member ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    The price for them has really come down and you get a lot of toys/car for the money.

    I took this in as a part x against my Impreza so haven't had it very long.
