Re: Picking up your (brand) new car experiences

I think the one piece of advice I would give is that in the excitement of picking up the new car, don't forget to check every inch of it inside and out for marks etc. The moment you drive away it will be far more difficult if you later find a mark. Also check that the car is the precise spec that y...

Re: Stop / Start .....is it worth it?

I don't like EGR's or DPF's either. Fecking hippies. :evil: Me also Hippies :p*ss: Hey guys give the OP a break. I think its a very va...
