    Missing infrastructure?

    Why would you have a spot reserved for EV's withOUT charging? The lamp is not. If it were, pedestrians would trip over the cord! I gave the area a very good look. The next spot (further away) is also painted as EV only. I think they had plans to do it and will later. Asked my friends to...

    Missing infrastructure?

    Visiting friends in Maidenhead, UK, I spotted this parking space and found myself scratching my head! Asked a couple of locals and they had not noticed it. What's missing? :) Was it a plan that got canceled?

    My first accident

    This thread has been most interesting. But I would have changed one thing, diplomat33. The hand written note ... I am surprised you want the "public" seeing your surname. I would have also redacted the authors contact information. Just sayin' Had I authored said note and it was...

    The catastrophe of FSD and erosion of trust in Tesla

    Your wording is like the firmware. There is no such verb as backread. How does FSD get angry? Sounds like you're on the team developing it! :)

    The catastrophe of FSD and erosion of trust in Tesla

    This is NOT beta software. I am a full stack developer and if our company released rubbish this bad and being in beta for YEARS we'd go under. It's hardly Alpha. It is insulting to the software industry in general.

    Vin number check

    Depends on the vin. Red, white or rose?

    Vin number check

    It's VIN. The N is number. Talk about a redundant tautology!

    If this has already been covered, forgive me ... but I laughed out loud when I came upon this.

    Is that "blue" the cars color or masking tape?

    London to Manchester without stopping? [SR+]

    Indeed, why. 200 miles w/o a stop w or w/o a "R3d Bull" to help is asking for trouble. Why the "allergy" to stopping?

    I'm calling you on this one. If you really were, we'd see the "Send from my i5h1t" JK :)

    iPhone vs. Android

    My company also develops apps for mobiles. My colleagues and I feel just the opposite. And when I get an email ending in "Sent from my *****", file 13.

    Get RID of the iPhone. That brand is more problematic than it's worth!

    ICE cars are dangerous.

    ICE cars are dangerous.

    Lamborghini and Lotus unveil last gasoline-only supercars

    Hang on sec. Who did Tesla outsource their body of the original Roadster to? Was that not Lotus? And their Elisa chassis? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lotus_Cars Why didn't they clue in then???

    Lamborghini and Lotus unveil last gasoline-only supercars

    Everyone should save money. You never know what the future has in store. My parents taught me ... "look after the pennies, the pounds will look after themselves".

    https://edition.cnn.com/2021/07/07/success/lamborghini-lotus-last-gasoline-engine-cars/index.html This article SHOULD be 5 years old? Instead these companies feel maybe now is the time. A bit late???

    Moving to France

    I thought you were trying to persuade us that VINCI could use your "immatraculation" to pay tolls. Really off-topic ... yesterday had to have been my worst driving days of my life. Nice to Paris ... already tiring enough in one day (900kms) but rain was forecast for Paris. Never driven through...

    Moving to France

    Because you were suggesting that tool booths here use ANPR.

    Moving to France

    Those tags are no different in concept than the VINCI ones. The only time ANPR comes in to effect is when you use T to pay for car parks. But that's autonomous.

    Moving to France

    As Vinci transponders are stuck on the windscreen / windshield of a car, what do foreign number plates have anything to do with it? ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras are not part and parcel of VINCI transponders that I have seen?

    Moving to France

    When I bought my car in France, they asked for my driving record from the USA. I got a NCB. I pay about 120E a month for a petrol car*. (Mini) And I only drive about 10000km a year here. Watts_up. not sure cool is the word. Challenging? I learned to drive in my native UK, then drove for...

    Elon Musk UK visit - potential factory?

    An aeroplane is a far more mission critical vehicle than a car yet it's all fly by wire. So there's no reason why cars cannot be "by wire" for three components. Steering, brakes and thrust.

    Elon Musk UK visit - potential factory?

    Only a matter of time in Musk world means 2040 at the earliest? Besides removing those components would never pass homologation.
  48. G

    Elon Musk UK visit - potential factory?

    I'm well aware of that ... hence my question ... what would it take to indeed make steering and brakes by wire. Both could use servo motors. Sensors. Could save car manufacturers a ton. I know I'd buy one. So I can easily drive from Europe to the UK.

    Elon Musk UK visit - potential factory?

    Would it be that difficult to make a hybrid car? One that switches from LHD to RHD at the flick of a switch? Pedals raise and lower. Drive by wire. Driver releases the wheel and "plugs" it into the passenger side?
