Re: Yet another

Just reading this now. We looked after a 20month old trainee guide dog German shepherd / golden lab cross for 10 weeks. The most intelligent one and best natured dog out of the 7 dogs we have looked after. So sure she can be trained and be great company. Ours was very much German shepherd yet his s...

Re: Danish Audiophiles

27yr old NAD 3240PE here (which I bloody love). It powers a pair of Tannoy V4i's, accompanied by a Tannoy TS2.10 active sub which takes a feed from the pre-amp.

Plus a Devialet Phantom (Silver) for more casual listening in the kitchen. (That bad boy goes down to 16hz 😎 )

Long box good for 100mph in third. License losing in a flash and one of the reasons I could console myself that maybe it wasn't for me, long term.
The close ratio bix us good for 100mph in 3rd. Long ratio box is 117mph as noted above.

4th in LR box is a baw hair off 5th in thd CR box. :D

Good choice. 8)

For info - sonething like 103 Sports Racers built. 53 of them were both manual-box and 'charged - the spec I was looking for. Took 5 months of waiting for one to appear in one of 3 colours I was prepared to look at.

Re: Watch lovers?

I got it wrong - It's 10% off as opposed to £100 off.

I'd comtact Customer Service and see what they can do. They know you can use their 60day return policy if you aren't happy.

Re: Watch lovers?

I've been looking for a watch for ages and got very fussy. The first one I saw that I really wanted was a Sinn pilots watch but they only do 40m which don't look right on my large wrists. Plus they are a little out my budget right now as are the full on divers watches I'd really like one day. Alway...

Re: Track outing at KH tonight

1. That was last night
2. That MINi is pretty LOO-y at times
3. The wee Elise holds on pretty well on the straights given he has close to double your power.
4. Looks like you had more Friday evening fun than I did. Buggar.
