    MushroomMan, Jolie gets her kit off in the following films:
    Pushing Tin (really good film)
    Mr & Mrs Smith
    But best one by far for nudity is "Gia"

    Batwad, I have nothing against double glazing on new builds, just on beautiful old houses. So many really nice old Victorian houses completely ruined by cheap plastic ****.
    1. It looks awful, the proportions of the windows are all wrong as the frames have to be twices as thick to give them any strength
    2. It suffocates old houses, as they are designed to breath so you end up with damp problems.
    3. To have a house hermetically sealed is just plain unhealthy
    4. Cheapskate homeowners replace beautiful sashes with the really shitty UPVC windows which either don't even open or have one tiny window at the top that opens about an inch.

    Overated

    tv "reality" shows - why would i give a ****?

    Rappers - how they can be so "bad" with names like curtis i'll never know

    the fashion industry - why do i want to look like everyone else and pay extra for it?

    Underated

    chocolate hobnobs kept in the fridge

    Marmite

    teaching the dog to fart in public - now thats entertainment

    You obviously haven't seen her body, and without makeup her lips are perfect.

    Drogba, paying him £100k a week for a whole year before he actually starts performing = overrated in my book.

    Have to disagree on the following points:

    My A3 is black.
    Venables is class.
    Internet Porn (MILF Hunter, Bangbus etc) kept me going while out in Iraq.

    HAHAHA! This really made me laugh!
    As a chelsea supporter i love it when people say they're ****, just jealous are you?!! John Terry is the england captain and there is no way you can say he's not a fantastic defender.
    German cars are overrated? maybe take a little look at the forum you are on...:blackrs4:

    And as for an escort cosworth, ha! Its just an escort with a big engine, all said and done, its still an escort! they were fast alright, but noisy and unreliable too, and when pushed hard would smoke like a destroyer!

    Funny an Escort Cosworth isnt just an Escort with a big engine its a totally different car from the ground up.

    I do think German cars are overrated and customer / owner opinion polls seem to support this. Mercedes now theres a top quailty brand.

    Chelsea cant even buy a European Cup and are not realistically going to win anything this year as usual Liverpool will knock them out of every cup competition they meet in :p

    Have to disagree there, using that logic an RS4 is just an A4... not.
    Or a Ferrari is just another recycled Zanussi washing machine...

    I'd rather have an A4 than an Escort anyday, the escort was a cheap as chips car, the A4 never has been that.

    I worked on enough Escort cossies to know they are a pile. Thermal shock in the turbo leading to cracked housings, unless you let it cool down for about 15 minutes... Water ingress into the electrical systems through the bonnet vents, the list goes on and on.

    They were alright for their time, but most half decent hot hatches now would stomp all over it. Thats if the escort even made it round the block without something falling off.

    So what your saying is that Liverpool who have won more silverware than any other British team havent been there.

    Lol you need to let the cooling fan cycle once if you have ragged the car if you havent taken it easy for a couple of minutes prior to turning the engine off in order to prevent the residual heat in the engine from boiling the oil this is adviseable on any turbocharged car its not Cosworth specific .

    Why do you think so many companies offer turbo timers for all makes of cars and have you ever wondered why the fan on your A4 runs sometimes after you have turned the ignition off

    My cooling fan never runs on as i let the engine cool but running it slowly to my destination.

    You have your opinion of Escort cosworth and I have mine, simple as.
    I have owned a cosworth, a sapphire 4x4 and for its time it was a good car, but i wouldn't own one now, there are much better alternatives.

    And as for rebuilding your YB, there about 8 derivatives of the YB engine dependant on what car the engine was fitted to, know what yours is do you?

    I've probably forgotten more about motor vehicles than you ever knew, i worked on cars since I was a kid, did 3 years at college after leaving school then went on to work for several garages, including an engine rebuilder opposite Fords in dagenham. I think that qualifies me as knowing a bit about the reciprocating piston engine the follows the otto cycle.

    Why dont you wikipedia some of that then, know it all? Maybe you might want to look up stoichiometric ratio's while your at it, because on the old cosworth BDA engine (that i don't know anything about) a vacuum gauge had to be used to set the correct mixture.

    So first you claim that cosworths are a pile of ***** and now your saying they are good.

    Why do you have a problem with me thinking that the cosworth is an underrated car ?

    My cars engine was based around a 200 block what sort where fitted to your cars ?

    Can you can be trusted not to hit that search button :yahoo:

    Easily. There's nothing in the BHP stakes but the Escort may be a bit quicker to 60 due to the fact its made of old kitkat wrappers and the S3 is made of steel.

    Everyone says they had the RS200 block in their car, they mostly bullshit.

    There were very few RS200's made and they are as rare as rocking horse ****, so having the engine from one in your escort cosworth is about as likely as NASA landing on the sun.

    Why would you take the engine out of your new escort cosworth and replace it exactly? did it blow up? now that would be unusual.

    The engine in my sapphire was the engine that came with the car, I did however have an RS500 block sitting in my garden that I was going to fit into it, but never bothered. Sold it to a friend of mine. I did however make an alloy water/air intercooler to fit into the car to keep the charge air temperature down, that was a good addition.
