soccer? whats that??? oh and rugby is the game where men take pleasure in grappling with each others bodies... :lol: ok ok ok, i admit, most footy players care more about their looks than anything else, i remember watching man utd against arsenal about 2 months before beckham was given the boot (so to speak) and he missed a ball that was passed to him as he was adjusting his stupid headband... i watched MOTD that night to see if they showed it, along with 70,000 people pissing themselves laughing at him, but alas, they spared him the embaressment... :lol:
please take time to just ask someone how they are. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.

Hi put me down as a possible, To meet you all at the pub (point 16) for lunch, I should be picking up my 120d in the morning so I can be there for lunch, allways assuming that it is ready on time as I havent had any firm confirmation that it will be delivered on that day.

I will be contacting the dealer as it was ordered a few weeks ago they have confirmed the speck but not the delivery date as such.

PS if you know any one that you dont like my present golf will be available for sale on that date as well.

If your 1er isn't ready, you can always bring the Golf. I'll drive slowly so you can keep up. :D

_________________
Be carefull the golf has 210 bhp and 326ft/lbs, (not bad for a 2ltr + chip) and if its wet spins it wheels endlessly going no where, so you will need to drive slowly, I wonder if ths is why the front tyres last less that 7000miles? I will as a last resourt but I live in hope of delivery on the 1st as I am sick of taking the golf back for warrenty repairs

Please note everybody, the route has changed! I'll be advising on the new route as soon as a couple of things have been confirmed.

Add my name to the register if you don't mind. There'll probably be one other person in my car as well.

no it is ft/lbs have rolling road print outs, thats proberbly why it breaks clutches, destroys duel mass flywheels, and the front tyres every 7,000 miles on average, that why it has to go, why not make me an offer and be surprised

Right folks, it's time to talk turkey. If you want to come along, please send me a PM with the following details:

Your forum name
Your real name
The colour of your car
The registration number of your car
Your mobile phone number

(I need these so that I can keep track of people on the day and get hold of you if you are late or get lost.)

Please respond ASAP, thanks! :D
