    The Tesla cars are all beautifully designed cars. Sadly I have never seen one in the flesh to see if they look good up close.

    So apparently PR21/5W tail light globes are very very hard to get. Repco, Auto1, supercheap and local parts shops donít carry them.

    Hecandangle pointed this out to me, it seems that the NSW Police have picked the BMW 530d and Chrysler 300 SRT to replace their Holden and Ford highway patrol vehicles:

    my brother's 2 week old Landrover disco. He ripped all the back plastic out by day 3 added off-road tyres and started ordering bits. He lost the 'underfloor storage' which was big enough to hold a box of tissues and a cube of sound foam. Added 250kg slides and angle iron frame and so far a 40 litre water tank and pump. Auxiliary battery and 2000W inverter. 4 gun safe coming fits over the tank. New electrical panel going in on left side. Air compressor going in next to the cars suspension compressor (white box on rear right). Still enough space to store a Billy and gas cooker underblneath. Engel fridge on slide. lift up doors in the slider to access useful bits. Bed is 10 inches longer than the old disco. On the farm this thing was dragging a trailer up steep trails in third gear while hardly wobbling when his old disco was doing jogging pace with no trailer and felt like it was rock crawling. Amazing what twin? Turbo will do.

    OK, this shit is epic. The 1,000 horsepower Cosworth V12 that will be used in the Aston Martin Valkyrie:



    If you just want to hear the 11,000 rpm beast in action it starts at 0:50, but the whole video is absolutely fascinating (to me anyway), it features the head of Cosworth talking in a really earnest way about all aspects of the engine and itís development.

    Yeah awesome car that one. Max Verstappen is getting gifted one apparently. As the designs a collaboration with aston martin & redbull. Not a bad gift when there's only 126 getting made at 3 mill a pop.

    That just blows my mind. Getting 1000hp out of a 6L naturally aspirated engine. That thing must be operating to within an inch of its life.

    What about this thing the Devel Sixteen?

    81 mm Quad Turbo 12.3 Litre V16
    5007 Hp
    3757 lb-ft of torque.
    0-100 Km/h (sec) 1.8
    Top Speed (Km/h) 500



    Call me a sceptic, but I would be very surprised how they could ever achieve this?, cooling being a real problem at prolonged top end & mechanical reliability.... There's a reason why top fuelers completely strip engines after a few runs......

    I'm in the market for a new car and I'm looking for a sedan... It seems as though everywhere has sold all their stock to the police :/

    Any thoughts or recommendations for 2019 sedans?

    I'm thinking:
    Kia Optima
    VW Passat
    Mondeo?

    Kiaís gave definitely improved over the years & probably get you the most bang for your buck. I reckon the Passat is very underrated & not sure how the Mondeoís are now
