The idea is that they are NOT easily automatically bypassed. Thats the point ;)

The old obscured letters setup was easily bypassed by bots, hence the new scheme.  Because the same backend system, operated by the likes of Google, is used on many sites, continuously cocking up one on one site will mean you are more likely to get repeatedly asked on other sites.  If you don't get frustrated, and take care, you will notice more and more that you'll still get the tick box to confirm you are not a robot, but get shown the picture verification less and less.

HTH

I thought the idea of having a password was to allow you in??? What is the point?

I thought it was just me! I click what seems to be all of the right pictures, and still they want more - what a useless system. There must be a better way???

Its defo not just you Ron. I counted doing 12 different picture quizzes the other day. It seems even when you are certain you have got it right, they still keep asking. I've never counted less than 4 pages, and usually 8+. >:( >:( >:(

I have spent countless hours clicking on pictures of traffic lights, bicycles, buses etc. trying to access some previously easily accessible sites. >:( >:( >:( I've given up on some, (including Topcashback, which is annoying) as life is too short. Has anyone discovered a way around these tedious systems?

Daughter is buying a top of range Tesla X with autopilot. Should be interesting to ride in. :-X

Possibly the most disappointing car I have been in given the price tag  :'( :'(

Do tell, I can try to dissuade her. :y

The general build quality is very poor, not well screwed together, very random panel gaps, lots of low quality touchy bits and not well screwed together.

Road manners are not great either, handling is very below par, its crap off road (it is just the road car on steroids) and they do have reliability issues.

The random rear doors are a pain and are known for open/close faults.

Then when you throw in the fact its an Ethernet port for diag, no OBD compliance so Tesla only for code reading and the fact the dealerships are in trouble, that the whole package starts to look massively overpriced and under delivers.

We had one in teardown, the verdict was a lot of tech in a Dacia type build.

Tesla is becoming like Apple, it has followers despite all the problems..........(just like an old Defender  ;D ;D)

Thanks Mark :y

General Car Chat / Dashcam
« on: 05 March 2019, 12:31:15 »
I have had a dashcam for a while, but never needed to look at the card yet. A friend just had a new Lexus, and had them put one in, and it came with instructions that to comply with some law he must put stickers on all points of entry to the vehicle, stating that it is/may be recording! Is this now the law? If so I guess I need some stickers. >:(

Is it worth getting independent view, is it the doors themselves or bad fitting?

It may come to that. The problem seems to be the brush seals, particularly at the bottom of the fixed panel. The vertical seal is slightly better since refitting, but the bottom seal is still draughty. I am not prepared to pay for two sets of doors. I shall be consulting my barrister daughter tomorrow. Although she is in finance she will know an expert in this field. :y

In December 2018 I had a pair of patio doors fitted. There are draughts from under the bottom of the fixed panel, and also from the vertical join with the sliding section.
I complained within a week to the supplier, who came after Christmas and refitted the doors. They are still draughty and are unacceptable. I have told the supplier, who says he will fit a different type at cost price, but still expects me to pay for the faulty doors. I have told him (outside the 30 days, but I did report the faults almost immediately) that I reject the doors as unfit for purpose and that they are of unsatisfactory quality. I have not paid for them. He also says I cannot have them replaced by another installer as they are his property.
Where do I stand legally? Can I have them replaced by another installer?

Hmmm, interesting views on CVT's, We've now had 2 Jazz's for atotal of 14 years. Lovely little car to drive, superbly designed, the first had paddles or a button on the wheel to select gears or just use D. This one has a sport mode and really shifts when asked. Never had anything other than services done. :y
