Quite enjoyed that, I think I'd go with the Porsche though.

Did Harris say the P1 wasn't road legal?

Only in its race mode, low down with the spoiler. Don't see why that means it's not road legal though?

Strange, possibly due to all the sparks coming from the rear end when it was in low-mode? I can't imagine the Police enforcing that though.

ON the same note: triple turbo charged 1 series anyone?

I've only seen a handful of the 550d in Germany, but if they do the 150d in RHD... want! 590lb/ft! 400bhp!

I'd like to see a 350d.

But the reason the 550d never made it to RHD, is because BMW said it couldn't be done due to the suspension.

Would be good to see a tri turbo petrol 6 in a hybrid. Should be good for 500 bhp+ and a mountain of torque.

I thought it was the steering column blocking the turbos/manifold?

Maybe. I can't remember. I remember they couldn't get the suspension low enough. Hence why the 50d engine is only used in the RHD X5 and X6.

Vinyl - of the record variety

After discovering that half my collection is missing or damaged thanks to a seriously unhinged ex I'm on a mission to replace it

So, avoiding the hell that is e-bay, any members on here got recs for good vinyl trade sites?

While in Stockholm recently, I walked past a junk shop with a Beatles LP for £100. Crazy.

I'm on-call Christmas week, but its good rates.  And i've only been called out 3 times all year so far.  And lets face it, hardly any public sector workers will be working anyway :D

We don't have any Christmas on-call, which is a shame, as I could add a cron job to shutdown a vital server or something and get out of another family Christmas :(
