    Now you are going too far, Derek. First you said Leeds had a football club and now you are claiming Leeds has a university! What do they study? Flat caps?

    I will have you know that up until his retirement my microbiologist brother was in charge of the medical department at Leeds University.
    As for the football club if you give your telly a smack to settle the vertical & horizontal holds then twiddle the knobs till you get a channel resembling ITV at 8 o clock tonight you will see their stadium.

    I believe the big stand is the largest single tier stand in the world?

    Coming from someone who insists cars are better than bikes, I find this statement a bit weird.

    And Ronaldo is much better than Messi. Messi's a tax dodging little shit, for a start. And a midget.

    But the difference is that it is an unarguable fact that cars are better than bikes.

    Just like diesel is better than petrol. Fact!

    Diesels don't need to rev as hard because they're already at max torque below 2,000 rpm. Fact. They're not noisier in quality cars, fact, and they're less polluting that petrol, providing they're EU Cat 6. Fact.

    Owners are not tightwads; diesels cost more to buy and service. Fact. This is further evidenced in that if diesels were driven by tightwads, they'd be driven exclusively by Jocks and Yorkshiremen, the tightest people in the galaxy. Fact.

    :devil-flip:

    Hand on heart, I honestly can't say one way or t'other. I had an email Saturday before last to say build and testing were complete and it had left the factory. It hasn't reached my dealer yet so, for all I know, it could still be sat in Germany awaiting transportation to UK.

    The 330d I test drove didn't clatter on start up.

    I see you can't deny anything I said in my post though :asz:

    Go on, admit it. You've missed me, haven't you?

    If you are into HGVs then I can see why you would like diesels.

    I'm a Jock and there are no diesels on our drive, so looks like you're right. (y)

    You'll know when it is in the UK - you will be able to hear it starting as it comes off the ferry at Felixstowe

    Um, why in God’s boots would make you think I was into HGVs? Are you drunk?

    In AB's mind, diesels = trucks.

    I think he's trying to be subtle..... :eek:

    Because she was shit to my mother & possibly part of the reason why my mother became an alcoholic, she treat my mentally handicapped brother like something she'd stepped in.
    On one of her occasional visits to us she met Bev & tried to belittle her, luckily she refused to come to our wedding, her reply "if they are getting married at such a young age then they must have to get married, I'm not coming as it's a sham & will not last"

    Er, you have bought a diesel. A diesel car is an HGV with a different body.
