I think its more of a technological demonstration/ experiment by the VW Audi group to show what they can do
That's what he said on Top Gear. Apparenlty they don't make any profit on these (selling them at a loss in fact). He likened it to Concorde....

i guess it means sponsor me to give codders some grief to get in the sin bin and raise some money for a childrens charity, nice gesture i think

post your pledges here...
Hugh was a bit miffed that JK, did not allow enough time to gather some sponsorship pledges for a worth while charity as it's XMAS, before being sin binned. That is why he created "JKisanob" profile .

As he cannot speak for himself he asked me to put his point across and he is happy for "JKisanob" profile to be deleted.

So Hugh can get on with some jobs around his house, and get his rib finished in time for next season as his Rib will only take 2-3 months to complete as supposed to 2-3 years

I hadn't thought of it like that! Quite obvious really, are Lambos on the same distribution network? When do you take delivery

yes bit of a shame, and I think that the "Codbashing" that started the suspension was very mild, after all, we all get bashed here from time to time. Take a look at my case:

I own a Cobra - I've been told many times that they're shit (according to members here)
I have an Opti - they're shit (according to members here)

I don't have a strong view as to other members RIBS/equipment/habits/personal views - they are quite entitled to a) buy want they want, b) say what they want and c) act how they want. I have absolutely no comment to make on any of it as I am not a self appointed net policeman and would never criticise others choice. I may offer what little advice I feel qualified to give and am more likely to ask questions then leap to answer them, from theory alone. If you set yourself up for a roasting, you cannot expect to be protected from the backlash. If you continually set yourself up for a roasting despite good advice, then natural justice would dictate that you get roasted - that is the way of the world.

Hugh Jardon is innocent - definitely

Now I'M gonna be away for Christmas....
