    [–] What 'common' car do you hate the most? laurenceriley87 0 points ago in cars

    I saw a new one of these only yesterday and thought "hey look a GT-86.....huh...is that a Subaru badge?"

    [–] Cyberpunk 2077 - Detailed Description of the 50 Minute Closed-Doors Demo laurenceriley87 0 points ago in Games

    This is forum, you discuss topics. If you don't want your preferences discussed and disagreed with don't post. I'm saying its a waste of time simply because you clearly have no interest in playing this game, so why post in the first place. Surely people want to talk to other people who want to play the game, not those who don't.

    [–] Always thought I had quite boring brown eyes til I took a closer look. Opinions? laurenceriley87 1 points ago in eyes

    Been doing some research but now a bit confused. I originally thought my eyes were brown. When I looked closer I thought maybe they are hazel. But I have just read about central heterochromia, and that the outer part of your iris is your true eye colour. And also that being two colours doesn't make them hazel. Hmm :/ so which is it? Brown, hazel, green? Heterochromia? Or none of the above?

    [–] Always thought I had quite boring brown eyes til I took a closer look. Opinions? laurenceriley87 2 points ago in eyes

    Ok makes sense. I wasn't sure if the brown round the iris and that greeny colour on the outside counted as separate colours, hence my confusion. But I'll take Hazel as an answer, thanks.

    So called 'first person' games? They aren't "so called" anything. They are literally in first person perspective.

    The customisation goes beyond the look of the character, it affects gameplay and story so they might as well let us change the way the character too . Plus you see the character in cut scenes so isn't completely wasted.

    [–] View from top of Mt everest laurenceriley87 8 points ago in BeAmazed

    If it is the highest point on earth, then wouldn't it stand to reason that with a good enough telescope you would be able to see the edge of the earth? Surely, only an object taller would obscure your view.

    [–] First Person Perspective and Third Person Perspective Megathread laurenceriley87 7 points ago in cyberpunkgame

    I think I would probably agree on the immersiveness of fpp. I always felt tpp is more like watching an interactive movie. You can become massively invested in the story and have a deep connection to the character but I think that's because you can relate to character more as you can see them, which isnt the same as immersion.

    If you want to feel like you are the character, then I am inclined to agree that fpp is the way to go.

    [–] What 'common' car do you hate the most? laurenceriley87 1 points ago in cars

    No I'm in the UK. Full of German cars here.

    [–] What 'common' car do you hate the most? laurenceriley87 1 points ago in cars

    Well you'd better believe it ha. I'd seen maybe five or so GT86s around but never a BRZ. Had to look it up.

    [–] 2018 Giulia Road Trip laurenceriley87 1 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    UK Veloce here too but also had Pirelli P7s from factory, so it isn't that. I thought all models in Europe came with Pirellis.

    [–] Model year differences (Veloce 2017/2018) laurenceriley87 1 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    Update: my model has the bacon and cross symbols for the vent controls.

    I suppose it must mean that some changes have been phased in before the major changes to the infotainment system.

    Either that or I have the 2018 model without realising it. What do you think the chances are I can get carplay with an software update?

    [–] Model year differences (Veloce 2017/2018) laurenceriley87 1 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    Hmm ok. I got mine Dec 17. Definitely has the divide which says avg. And the mpg on the left. Dont say they gave me the 2018 updated display but no carplay!! Haha.

    I've never noticed the numbers or bacon on the vents, I will need to check this now.

    The boot lid on mine only has the one button (think it's a UK thing) so can't check that though.

    [–] Model year differences (Veloce 2017/2018) laurenceriley87 2 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    Good spots, although I have a 2017 model and my driver instrument display looks like the 2018 picture. Looks to me its just that the contrast is set too low and the trip b isn't turned on in the settings on the 2017 pic.

    It's strange there are such small changes between the two years (other than infotainment changes). Makes you wonder why they would even make changes of such insignificance.

    [–] Message I got from a random guy after a couple of rough games. Made this rough-spell just a little bit better laurenceriley87 2 points ago in RocketLeague

    Just a shame about that 0.1% which ram into you all game cos they are always going for the same ball as you instead of getting into a decent position, spam "what a save" when you just can't get there in time while make no saves themselves and then say "shit teammates" at the end. Unfortunately they clearly don't feel terrible about playing like trash and need to blame others. They are like the worst people in existence. Wish they would just stick to 1v1.

    [–] Found myself in a nice spot for a photo laurenceriley87 1 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    It's only really been the underneath of the front skirt where it slopes down before the front wheel where it happens , but it happens quite often cos of places I have to go to, and I avoid some routes cos of the speed bumps (but who cares if I have to go the long way round eh 😊) but you can't see it and it's made of plastic, so I try to not worry about it too much.

    Once or twice the side skirt just before the rear wheel has scraped but only where there is a massive hump in the road. Again can't see as it's underneath and no real danger of damage, but the noise is like nails down a chalkboard!😬

    I really wouldn't have noticed about the gap without you saying but I can see it a bit now. But very nice looking motor, love the colour. It was my second choice but just love red alfas. Are those the 19" rims? They look great!

    [–] Found myself in a nice spot for a photo laurenceriley87 1 points ago in AlfaRomeo

    Ah I see. I sometime have issues with ground clearance such as on speed bumps and steep humps in the road, so I can imagine you will get the same if you see about lowering it. But, on the other hand it will look great!!
