    weather permiting my s3 is getting a good going over. now when it comes to car engines im no MECHANIC! i know whats what roughly in an engine, but given the right advice i can turn my hand to many things. I've been working at mclaren's head office in woking at the moment (sorry had to get that one in) and doing a few miles each day. is there anything that can be done to the engine to clean it up a bit. spark plugs, air filters etc. you know what its like when your car has its first service she seems to drive so much better, but does'nt seem to last that long. the only thing i have ever done in the engine so far is check the oil, and screen wash /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif. any advice would be appreciated. thanx. ps. by the way mclarens office is un-fookin-real. seen the slr being built at most stages, and also the formular 1 section is pretty cool, saw this gtr le mans mclaren f1 on friday. sound like a spitfire.

    did you see that merc cl on topgear tonight. twin turbo v12 6.5litre. they showed you it overtaking and it was rapid as fook! I've seen the slr at the motorshow and whilst it is magnificent, it is a bit ugly! would like to see some pics of it being made!!

    no no, that was taken with my actual digital cam. yes that is the main foyer. all the glass partitions going down the left hand side is where they build the cars. there's no expence spared you could eat your dinner of the floor lol, beleive me these boys dont do things by half! there must be thousands of pounds worth of tools alone, big tool chest's all made by "Snap on" which i think is one of the most expencive tools there is. i did'nt like the slr at first but now i have seen 1 or 2 they are growing on me. ive added a pic i took with my phone now that is not good quality, i sent it to my e-mail address to get it on p.c. it of the mclaren f1 gtr, which i was told was just sold to an arab. dont know how this will come out but will try anyway. not many pixels on camera phone (sharp gx10 i). try and get some more during week if i dont get caught, your not a spy for williams are you haha
