Re: Arterial spray anyone?

I'd suggest there are more interesting engines now but I guess the turbo is easier to deal with electronics.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

It wouldn't surprise me if the winner was decided in a brothel somewhere in the middle of Europe last year, England wer...

Sat nav screen - don't you have to give it some cooling fans to stop it overheating and going all streaky?

And this evening I shall be basking in the absolute silence of the Croatian football team's defeat at the World Corruption Final. Woo.
