Welcome to TLF Dan.

You'll get something, but test drive them. You'll find what clicks. I'm betting that it starts with an 'E'.

Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :)

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
