  4. I have had my whole car done in black!! Was going to keep it quiet and ping some pictures up when I've got it cleaned!! Had most of the car done gloss but then 3 M carbon look on the roof, rear deck and scallops in the skirts. Must say it looks good but needs a wash and a coat of polish to really show it off at its best. Its not perfect by any means as I just fancied a change and wanted it done cheap but its pretty good!! I had a friend do it and he said the esprit was an easier car than he expected.
  5. I have surround sound in the bathroom with docking station in the boiler cupboard and nit had any issue with it (3 years old now). Speakers are ceiling mounted with the sub concealed in the boiler cupboard and ported into the room. If you want to go water proof then the two options are as said the waterproof speakers or concealed plasterboard speakers which use the plasterboard as the speaker material. The second of those option gives you an invisible sound system with the exception of the sub for bass but requires quite a bit of installation work.
  6. If your havin girl problems I'll be there for you son, I got 99 problems and a ***** ain't one of 'em!!
  7. Looks like your shopping list is similar to my potential one late in the year!! Maserati 3200/3400 is the only one I've not seen suggested ye at your 20K price range!! If you were around the 40K ish mark then Bentley continental GT, Aston DB9, Aston Vantage!!
  8. They have more space than you'd think inside and they seem to be child friendly ish (my two were romping around in one for a while!!)
  9. Already complained to my sister who works for Aston about this!!
  10. New Series, Sunday, BBC2, 8PM. Nuff Said
  11. Or maybe the car is close and they are far away!!! Close................................Far away Close................................Far away The XJ220 around Warwickshire is normally at Supercar Sunday at Gaydon. The guy doesn't just pootle it like you expect either, I've seen it at full tilt down the B4100 and it is a seriously quick car!! Also saw one in a ditch outside Balsall common once. It had been serviced at Jag and the test driver had been a little too enthusiastic!!!
  12. Awesomely Random thread!!! I thought I may have over stepped the mark with my comment about submarine plane legths but it would appear not!!!
  13. All of the above are good, I used to find that investing in the tool that removes the centre of valves is a good idea!! Don't let all the tyres down just one.................each day for a week or so, it becomes very irritating when you have to change the wheel everytime you wnat to go somewhere and are constantly being told there is nothing wrong with your tyre!!!
  14. In the unofficial Bond Film 'never say never again!' when the under water vehicle exits the boat through the hatch you will notice that the fin on one side is longer than the other. Then later in the same scene they are both the same length!! It would appear they didn't measure the sub before the shoot and made the set the wrong size I would presume!!
  15. Thought it was yours, Also think its Kylies Sport 350 in a couple of shots!!
  16. I reserve judgement till I see it. Provided the proportiuons are correct it will look fine. On another note I've see a few 458 Italias now and have to say they are not as nice in the metal as they are in the pictures!!
  17. Own up, who's been pictured in various locations without their knowledge? Oh and who own the pink Esprit on Page 2!!!!!!!!!!

    Police Evora Same story but states that the car will be used for 2 weeks on the M6 M5 M42 Must resist temptation to do a drive by so I can watch the copper trying to get out of it!!! Nope, not going to be able to resist so will be taking tax disc out of window for the next couple of weeks in hope!!!!
  19. Are some of these not imports registered into Germany? I only ask as Ferrari no longer produce the 550/575!! Surprised the California is as high as it is on the list!!
  20. Oh jesus christ my eyes make it stop!!!

  22. I need one of these too. was going to go stainless but not sure what I'm doing with the old girl this year now so will go for the SWLC one instead I think!!
  23. The train was quite crowded, and a U.S. marine walked the entire length looking for a seat, but the only seat left was taken by a well dressed, middle-aged, French woman's poodle. The war-weary Marine asked, 'Ma'am, may I have that seat?' The French woman just sniffed and said to no one in particular ' Americans are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat.' The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat left was under that dog. 'Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired..' She snorted, 'Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!' This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window, and sat down. The woman shrieked, 'Someone must defend my honour! This American should be put in his place!' An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, 'Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your cars on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out the window'.
