Had to go through a fair sized puddle to get to my girlfriends house last night. i thought it would make a little splash. so whipped out the phone to record it. DEFFO wasn't expecting it to come up right over the bonnet... gave me a slight heart murmur i think. was expecting the car to konk out but the oll S40 just went straight through, must be part land rover i reckon :p puddle was well over a foot deep haha




theres a nice little video :p

Wow - Neat !

Head Lights - Washed - Submersion Tested

Stream Fording - Snorkel : LOL

If that water had been moving 5-10 mph to the Left - You might have Hit the - White Post .
Just saying to ( watch out ) If the Water is Moving - have to move much slower Or Go Really Fast !

I Think a few CAI - would have failed that Test .

At Least it was Fresh Water : :thumbup:

Haha. Im impressed i got through it. I cld see either end of the puddle so was sure it was relatively safe haha
I reckon the induction kit saved it. Where is the standard air intake?

The original air intake is right above the left horn when seen from the front.

Still, good you didn't drown your engine... :p

Haha. Love the phone, feels really nice to use and a solid build. Amazing camera software. The 360* panoramic thing is amazing ( example below.) really smooth and fast to use. Im really happy.

Oh and the video was forwarded to my pc then uploaded to photo bucket.



Thats after applying what they call 'tiny world' effect. You need a nexus to view it in full effect. You can fill thr black hole but i was to lazy to move haha

Haha yeah it sold in out on original launch in 20 mins and second batch sold yesterday in half hour. I got mine off ebay for £20 more than rrp. Which made me laugh as thr guy obv didnt realise the value. Some 16gb ones sold for £600 over double the rrp!
