  1. can't beat those TDCI engines... unless you are a honda, bmw, Alfa, Merc of course.... did anyone see Autoexpress this week doing a family Diesel test? the IS was conspicuous by its absence....
  2. I'd go for the Merc SL. used to have a 280SL back in 1998. Best car I have ever owned on paper. (I prefer the Lexus overall but the Merc cost three times my house payment!). The SL is actually a usable 2+2 GT. I have brought 5 year old kids (one in the back) to and from Taunton in mine and they were fine with the passenger seat forward. Great ride roof up or down. EXCELLENT build quality. one of the few modern mercs that still feels really solid yet agile on the road. even the wheezy 2.8 V6 was powerfull enough to make it fun so the 500 will be a scream and the 600 was generally considered overkill for the far eastern markets. If you check 'em out you'll find the best engine/chassis combo is the 300SL-24 closely followed by the SL320. The NSX is great but closest comparitor has to be a Ferarri 348 (imagine it was reliable) and that does make it a special supercar. The honest answer has to be, all of them are more exciting than your IS300... are you saying you want excitement? thought about putting a V8 in your IS?? just a few thoughts that might help... :zee:
  3. Yes Colin Barber is the Dean Cain of the LOC, But there are many unsung supermen and women of LOC and they all conspire to make it a place we all return to day after day for some lighthearted mirth and merriment. Makes you wonder what void we all must have had in our lives BL (Before LOC). Let the love flow :D :D :D :D
  4. Good On Ya Duncan!! THink you'll love that extra boost. I remember the first time Zee took for a spin in his. I knew I was gonna have to invest in a little bag of tricks to beat that TGV style Pulling power!! How will your lowered car/expensive Rubber cope with the increase in thrashability? :zee:
  5. Shame, Vince. we could have compared mussels! ;)
  6. just seed read this but one obvious question: Who pics the numbers? :o
  7. I've seen one doing 140mph.... might have been er...Red
  8. facing the lonely prospect of banging local hookers in a cheap hotel while I think about work tomorrow, I put a plea out there! is anyone going to the Ace cafe tonight? If so, can they let me know where it is. Steve, Bazza, Si Skippy all have my mobile number. I will be off line mostly but will check here if I can. If anyone is off then, I'd be up for a lickle meet. Right, more blinkin' work!
  9. lots of people have Nokia 6310I and live in all kinds of rooms of various shapes and sizes, pete. ;) but, I know the cost of london properties is not so good as up hear so I might have to give up some wardrobe space if I moved... Cheers, Loz
  10. I have a special mobile phone for just this kind of car crime emergency... its reassuring, the effect it can have on such naughty people. :duh:
  11. Even the Lord couldn't make to mountains without a valley in the middle so when you are in the valley, be thankful that you have the side of a mountain to look up to.
  12. fargo, really not sure about the authenticity of that photo but it is funny none the less. I bet that was a real sphinkter moment! :o
  13. you know, the problem with that Coke Gag.... it just got diluted, man...
  14. first he wants suits now he wants pole dancers you offerin' Bazza? ;)
