Just a teeny weeny point here... I guess you're refering to the Training vs Experience thread, previously known as Training vs Experience (and Codprawn's qualifications), I don't believe that there's been any codprawn bashing at all!

I asked codprawn to clarify his own IT qualifications following his attack and patronising remarks on Microsoft and Cisco accreditation, and asked him to clarify his own vague claim to exam success. In his truculent reply, he declined to do so, and continued to belittle and pour scorn on these qualifications.

I also asked codprawn to clarify his claimed 1st class honours degree as he had previosly posted a different course name. He replied with a third variation on the course name, giving a history as follows:

This inconsistency prompted me to look at The University of Wales web site, which confirmed that none of those courses are currently offered. Upon posting this information, one could say that codprawn "lost it".

I haven't seen any personal attacks on you... if you have a problem with anything that I post, please let me know, then drop me a line and I'll change it if it's offensive or unacceptable. I'm sure that anyone else would be similarly open to such requests. However, I would draw your attention to paragraph 2 of Mr Kennett's General Posting guidelines "If you make a statement of fact, be prepared to back it up with some evidence".

Going to test drive it this weekend but just wanted to ideally go armed with some feedback.
Richard, getting back to your original point we're on Shogun #3 in 10 years. The first an L reg 3.0 v6 - great car but a bit underpowered for its size, the second a 3.5 V6, which was better. Latest vehicle is the 3.2 Warrior turbo diesel and it is fantastic. Ok, not the fastest car in the world, but its kept my licence clean, scoots along on the motorway and it tows Juno like nothing's there, even up a big hill. The Warrior has better suspension than the standard Shogun and fatter tyres, so its much more planted on the road and the cornering is better, also doesn't seem to eat tyres like the old Shogs used to. The power upgrade has just become available and the cheapest dealer to get it done is the main Mitsi dealer in Reading (who also, incidentally, seem to have a pretty good selection of used vehicles).

Don't have any personal experience of the Shogun Sport, but we have stuck with Shoguns over the years as they give us practicality, space and flexibility, and comfort - and great value for money.

Having said that, we're due for a change soon and the new Disco is looking tempting, if a bit like a van at the back... hmm.

I don't think my Pajero Sport have rear LSD, Last time I tried to tow 5 tons off dirt out off my garden on a trailer, the car became stuck with the right front and left rear wheel off hte ground, and the car just not get out of there by it self.

Even tried applying a but off break, which should make the ABS break the spinning wheel, but not enough to get me out.

had to get the catapiller front loader

I shouldn't really bother lowering myself to answer crap like this but on a FINAL note(that is I will not bother replying again - if you really need the last word.....)

Firstly I ONLY got dragged into all this whilst trying to defend myself!!!! YOU were the one who started harping on about what qualifications I did/didn't have!!!

Course not currently offered??? Who said I graduated recently???

Lastly

"If you make a statement of fact, be prepared to back it up with some evidence"

Ok then - I would like to see the PROOF that you are married - have a driving licence - are a citizen of the UK - have a vhf licence etc etc....

Ridiculous??? Of course it is!!!
