I'm glad it's not the case for all consultants.

The guy I know is a fairly junior surgeon and he has no proper support at all.

ffs fuel prices

Had to pay 1.14 today. Cost me something like 62 to fill her up and as im doing 30000 a year it's starting to hit.
I'm honestly thinking of selling my 335D and buying a 318D if it can do around 650mile per tank. Does anyone have the new engine 318D Manual or even the new 320D with an Auto box and if so what range do you get from a tank ?

I'm totally fed up with this goverment and taxation.

I was looking to change to the 335d! I am fed up of putting in 99 octane in my 335i, I get 200 miles a tank - but a very urban commute, I love the 335i too much to sell for the very fast tractor

Can't go wrong with the 320d its betters the prius (not that its difficult!) http://cars.uk.msn.com/greenmotoring...mentid=6934726

+10bhp, -10 that's the problem

Oil up to record high $102 per barrel today. And we still stand to get an extra 2p per litre on fuel duty in April....... And the treasury don't bother to mention that VAT is on a percentage basis as part of what we pay for fuel so their revenue goes up with the rise in prices from the petrol companies. So the increase in fuel duty is a double whammy for them and us. Guess who comes off worst though
