That’s aimed at Opel Combo/Peugeot Partner/Renault Kangoo type of car, pretty popular with small businesses in Europe. Getting one under 20k EUR as a company car (so, is a cost for your company, so tax stuff bla bla bla) will be considered by many, after consulting with their accountants. Add some incentives to the Read more

Quartararo rode a bit too hard, Vinales didn’t ride quite hard enough. I wonder how much ahead in the general classification would M. Marquez by at this point if not for the broken hand.

I hope there’s a place for David Tracy’s stuff and NPOCP somewhere else on the web and that they move soon. This place isn’t dead yet but it’s pretty much at terminal cancer, third round of chemo, let’s double the morphine stage.

I’ve read the article and some comments, went out for a cig and this exact thought struck me. No idea.

But it shouldn’t be that hard to find the exact part, a lot of Read more

In such case they’re shit outta luck if they have to install Win10 as well or do anything else with a computer other than scrolling through Facebook. There won’t be many such cases per school and the school IT guy shouldn’t have a problem with helping them sort this out. A bigger issue here is that such families Read more

And that’s pretty much what I’m saying, but I think getting a used desktop + screen (if there isn’t one laying around somewhere already) is the way to go. They don’t need a 1080 geforce for school now, do they?
One advantage of notebooks is that they usually come with a preinstalled Windows. But then again learning to Read more

A 4 pot 100hp turbo diesel which has almost 4 liters of displacement. I’ve driven a couple Mondeo diesels with 130 and 140 (the newer one, I think it was from PSA) turbodiesels and these were exactly half that displacement with comparable torque figures.
And they didn’t even need a rebuild after 200 000 km on each.
