    Happy birthday you old bugger lol

    I don't use the forum much nowadays so does not really bother me too much.

    I spend most my time on the FOC seeing as I now own a Ford focus with a Peugeot engine lol.

    MG with a BMW engine, now a Ford with a Peugeot engine lol seem to have a thing for a car with another make of engine in it these days.

    Now that's very kind of you John, not too bad, trust you're in the pink as well.

    Mind you, you're rather lucky to receive a reply within the week as I'd don't frequent these boards as much nowadays - not been the same since the Canadian takeover.

It tells me when to stop and start, and when to use the brake
And tells me that it's never, ever, safe to overtake.

It tells me when a light is red, and when it goes to green
It seems to know instinctively,...
