    R.I.P Mark Hall

    RIP Mark. Count Duckula was the best. Some of it was way too clever for children mind. Pure genius.

    Greener bmw

    My thoughts too Dan. Anyway, the "greener BMW" is in the 5th picture.

    I love this video..

    And a lot of the flight control systems on Airbus planes. One heck of a diversified business. No, I'm not on comission

    I love this video..

    I don't recall it being a "trick" one, so only a couple of thousand. They've only got to lift a "few" tons. Not like the one metre diameter cylinders at 30,000 psi which would lift 5,000 tons, but that's another story.

    TVR Cerbera? yes or no?

    If it's a reliable, cheap to run, plastic bodied V8 you want for 10K, I recommend : http://www.pistonhea...les/3235739.htm But, like most others, I have a huge soft spot for TVR's.

    Yes, JCB are good, but so are Liebherr ( and both are my customers, so I can't pick ). But which is the best ? - there's only one way to find out - FIGHT !

    All personal taste of course, but I'm not keen on the over-slammed look. Makes me think the suspension's gone Love the E9 though, and regret not swapping my Vauxhall Viva 2300 for one back in the eighties......

    540i Sport 2001 x reg

    DON'T DO IT ! I sold my 540 for a 52 CLK500, ran that for over 6 dull years, then bought my old 540 back. Nothing compares. Nothing. V8 E39's WILL be more valuable in time - as long as you don't mind waiting 10 + years ( I reckon ). But they will be the ones to have.

    Winter Tires - which type and how much?

    I spent last winter on 19" Avon ZZ3's. No probs.

    Hi all! I'm new to forum... come checkout my 5..

    Welcome Mr Bond ( sorry, Dr. Bond ). Love the car and what you've done / doing. Don't recall seeing Toledo blue, but really looks good. Can't wait to hear your reports on the S/C and LSD - two things on my list to do. Cheers, Mark.
