  1. Would this from be the chap who once "forgot" to put on his seatbelt ? Haha. Good one MATE. Thanks for the comment. Thank YOU (and others) for making me realise how this forum is no longer what it used to be. I'm gonna stay off LOC now (apparently accounts cannot be deleted). It's turned into a children's playground. Fed up of personal comments, and from what I can see, I'm not the only one. If you have a problem with ME, be man it enough to say it to my face.
  2. sam, your car sounds evil as it pulled away. Good work, it's a really special car now.
  3. Racing cars on public roads is dangerous. I can't believe this thread is even staying up.
  4. Glad you're ok mate. Always remember, cars can be replaced, but people cannot.
  5. IMHO, Lexus seem to be chasing after market share and have a mish mash strategy for Europe. Diluting the brand from the heady heights of the LS range. Lexus Compact story
  6. Ya. Once you are over 90-100mph, the good aerodynamics of the LS really make a difference.
  7. Actually, I take that back. Try flooring a Series 1 LS400 when turning right into a roundabout, and record your facial expression as you realise there are NO driver aids to help you as 241bhp gets driven through the 205 width tyres.

  9. Hello grumpy old man, Sorry to hijack your thread with MY pictures, but since I'm an egotistical fool, you just have to put up with them :-) You should have shelled out for a H2..now that was great fun intimidating other road users and pretending to be in CSI. It also wouldn't fit in some of the drive thru lanes..haha! yes that is me with a bobble hat in the peak of summer 2008.. I bet you didn't have fun colleagues who had number plates like this one? I also managed to blag one of these by flirting with the lady on the booth at National..got it for 17 quid a day! haha! 3.5V6 toyota highlander - fwd version but a nice ride. Saw this dude at the BMW factory in South Carolina And saw this dude there too (was a big annual Z4/Z3 meet) This guy's car was actually funny You'd have more fun if you took the Stang in the drive thru Starbucks! You would have definitely had more fun if you levitated above the Mustang like I did! For the money to a US consumer, the base spec Mustang is bloody good value for money, and everywhere I went (2000 miles in a week across 7 states), I got nothing but admiration and compliments everywhere I drove. I believe Ford have done well, it's a very good car for the US market. I drove all night long with the roof down on the interstate with cruise control and it was perfect for the job.
  10. same as matinity, but for men and you don't get paid as much (£117 a week i think, i've got it coming up sometime in next 6 weeks :) ) congratulations :) Oh, I thought it was an additional benefit over and above paternity leave. My bad.
  11. rear main seal is leaking. 10 quid part, but iirc, the gearbox needs to come out to replace it, so several hundred pounds in labour costs
  12. hello mate, I have a spare key from my old GS300 Sport that I just found the other day. You are welcome to have it free of charge. Just drop me a PM with your address. I don't know what you will need to do to make it work with yours, but it saves you a few bob.
  13. the ones near me usually have a bumper sticker that reads, "my other car is a marked patrol car".
  14. Sadly, I won't be able to make this.
