Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

^ Although it makes no sense, I have to admit that I'm slightly tempted to buy the 400hp, 4wd drive version of the MG4, the X-Power that works out at less than 30,000 Euros in Thailand!

Or murder-suicide? It does happen.

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

The above article doesn't define "Lifetime"? I've had a read and it's not defined yet in any press release but it's something I'll be keeping an eye on. If it's what it says, a lifetime guarantee on the battery, motor and controller, I might be paying MG a visit. I fancied a BYD Atto 3 bu...

As an American and smash burger..well, any burger, fanatic, I was bummed to see that Robin Hood was sold and renamed. Those were great smash burgers by a Scottish guy. The place is now called Father & Son, and they have ‘smash burger’ written on their sign. Anyone been there lately? How is it? ...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

^Many is the time that I've been in the sun in my garden in Hin Lek Fai looking at intense rain on those hills behind Black Mountain Golf course.

I've already made a start at looking for property in Europe, I've rented for years in Luxembourg but the prices wouldn't be viable once I've finished working so I'm considering over the border in France where it's still pretty cheap to buy.
