The days that Google was fresh & funny are long gone.
They act now worse than their worst enemy couple of years ago.

Excellent choice, Martin. The 2.5 shouldn't be thirstier than the 2.O, it goes like stink and is very, very robust. And the vibrato, well... what can I say ? One should record it and put it on CD. :D

Have a look at this site. It's all German, I know... just have a go.

The general concensus (as it seems to have been written by an american) is that its typical american anti-middle-eastern propoganda. Except that, if the crew were Chinese, some might laugh but no one would give a toss. Now all of a sudden, it's 'typical american anti-middle-eastern propoganda'. :zzz:

Hidden Number Plates

Hi guys, sorry to bother you with this one, but couldn't find it with 'Search': why are number plates on pictures hidden or 'smudged'? Is it a legislation matter? There is a sticky with an addition to the charter on this one, but it doesn't explain why. Pictures always look a bit weird without them.

Two Australian lads are walking through the bush, when they come across a dingo licking its privates.

After watching for a few moments, the first lad says, "Just between you and me, I've wanted to do that all my life."

The second lad says, "I dunno, mate - he looks pretty vicious."

I towed a 2 year old Peugeot 307 Break once, straight through the center of Antwerp at around 4pm on a week day. The Pug is quite a heavy car and the traffic was very busy so it was a bit of a handful... but it performed flawlessly! Not really a comparison for a 2700 km road trip with a trailer, I k...

The best decision you could take, Martin, albeit a brave one.
And for what it's worth: it's just a car... ain't it?

Do check the damper first. Sometimes one gets clogged and inhibits the light to pop up.
It's a time consuming job nevertheless.

Good luck! :D

So good quality dampers are essential to avoid such a skid, no?
