Yes - liking it - took a while to get the driver issues sorted but after that - its reliable. I use it for the main media centre so it's on all the time. Used for net browsing, gaming, downloading, watching tv, listening to music etc etc. Would recommend it to anyone who has a fairly new PC.

pic works for me

I'll be honest though, I'm not a fan of the actual wheel though... lol

But it's horses for courses as they say. :P

I'm sitting here on the floor in front of my TV too, typing on my shuttle media box.

Love it, wired direct to the flatscreen and the pio amp. 134gb of Mp3s and over 600gb of HD movie madness at my fingertips.

Uses regular XP pro interface though so accessing the goodies is easy for me but not as easy as say picking up a remote and pressing play. My other half struggles to get it to work sometimes, but at least she needs me for something

Paul, lovely wheels - you will definitely need to sort your suspension to complete the look.

I used to have a shuttle but wanted to fit a decent graphics card, soundcard and dual TV tuner so had to ditch it. My missus is the same lol.

Paul - agreed - I think its gonna look a little odd on stock suspension. I was thinking about replacing the centres with BMW ones but haven't found any that fit yet.

Couldn't be bothered with farting around sending 'em back to BBS in Germany (because of scratches) so fitted 'em. Need's lowering and BMW centres on I reckon.

The wheels look great !

I think lowered suspension would make it look even better.

(I'd also suggest some sunblinds without the smiley cat. I got mine from John lewis for a £5'er )

Every time I see it on the motorway I feel it taunting me.

That and 'baby on board' signs. What are they for?

Are we supposed to read them and then think:

'ok - I'll pick another car to crash into since these people have children'.

My thoughts exactly.

Those 'Baby on Board' signs really piss me off. I sometimes find myself driving even closer to these cars to just annoy them
