    Which makes it pointless and confusing. Thanks for illustrating my point Kinson.

    I'm not confused by it, I'm confused by people that think there's a need for it, and clearly some people are confused by it.

    Without wishing to sound like a broken record, doesn't the fact that people think there's a need for it, AND actually use it, imply that there's a need for it?

    People are confused by many things but that doesn't mean those things shouldn't be there in the first place.

    No, it doesn't.

    Dan actually uses a dildo as a gearstick, that doesn't mean there's any need for it. ;)

    Welcome.

    Dont get that at all, how are the exhaust tips going to hold you back buying a car, if you dont like then add a double tip or change the backbox, it really is that simple.

    Check the front of your service book, also that info supplied wont help allot, doesnt denote fuel type, engine size, gearbox etc, just check inside the SB.
