    Only caught my eye as I have been on car control course and was taught how not to brake like t*t but this raises some doubt ..........

    The course is worth a look at for anyone on the forum wanting to improve driving skills - link below

    Yep - its a bit heavy on tyre wear but worth every penny. The instructor was great - everything made sense and does't matter how good a driver you are, you come away having learnt something

    Mate, it's NOT the case in Australia !! I don't know where that Journo gets his information. There have been a couple of Ads, the highest of which was $250k (list is $224k on the road). A dealer associate of mine bought a CSL to speculate. He asked a $15k premium and he has still got the car 8 weeks later.......... Needless to say he is starting to sweat about offloading it.

    Premium? I ain't seen no **** premium !! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nono.gif

    What amazes me is that drivers in the UK raise over £36,000,000,000 (billion pounds) in revenue EVERY YEAR that goes to the government! Yet the only intent to spend £31 billion over then next 10 years! What a joke .....this country makes me sick! Rip off.....Rip off .......Ripp off...... Ripp off! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif

    Yes and you pay £3 to travel on that dodgy tarmac (referring to the M6 Toll)
    but lets be honest, its a nice smooth tarmac, is that why its so slidey?

    Well, if you end up up the ar*e of another car whilst changing your CD, you can always blame the tarmac!

    Not to mention all the money we are now paying all those countries we have bombed to rebuild their infrastructure.

    CJ, I'm with you... it make me barf!
