Silver, you are right... although some observers at the UK3 meet actually believe that I have no brakes... The convoy drive we had was so awesome and FAST

This is where I get my shag: http://www.tobaccoland.co.uk/pipe.php

I recommend Radford's Sunday Fantasy... and boy what a fantasy it was... but stay clear of the Black Bogey, the aroma lingered for days and I had to put my slippers in my Bosch washing machine to get the smell out :mad:

Rochester BMW.....

I think I have solved the mystery. My car will, I believe, have 12 months road fund licence on it. I believe on ex-demos they only put 6 months but new cars 12. Someone may be able to confirm. Was your car an ex-demo?

Here's a recent shot of the MF Paul's interior:

The centre of a baked bean toasted sandwich cooked in a breville sandwich maker is the hottest thing in the known universe.

It is warmer than the centre of the sun.

Thousands of scientists around the world are currently embarked on a ceaseless quest to find a way to eat one without without burning your tongue.

That is bizarre - this is exactly how I was planning to spend Good Friday.

I'm from the US living here temporarily. I didn't read the whole thread (too long...lol), but I don't know how you guys can pay all of these taxes:
Road Tax
TV Tax
17.5 VAT
Income Tax
and anything else

I could not believe this new car tax rise when i heard it. This is getting rediculous. Before you know it, you will have a direct debit straight to the government for you whole paycheck, and you can live in some sort of government quarters with cheese rations. What's next????
