Why 1950 hours per year??? Remember that you will be spending most of your leisure time at the petrol pump!!!

.............why everyone seems to give a damn about fuel consumption. I have mates who drive every exotic car you can think of including the very latest four seated Maserati Quatroporte, most of them also own exotic boats and each and every one of them bangs on about fuel consumption. On this one I have to agree with Mr Rat. The caveat to that would be a commercial user - I'll let you lot off and someone wishing to calculate cnsumption for a long distance cruise. Those who bang on about it because of the cost

Mmmmm......

........I suppose you could be right, however I'm sure my good pal P D along with Jono Gorton could testify to the fact that I move in rather exotic circles - I myself only drive an Audi - but you can be assured that more often than not I travel shotgun in some rather fancy stuff. If you can't be the King at least be the Kings best mate.

Oh, such modesty! What you have failed to tell the forum, Graeme, is that it's only got one seat, an RS8 badge on the tail, and you only drive it for 24 hrs every June in France

....A woman walks into the doctors surgery and advises the doctor that she's extremely worried, "every time I opens my legs I hear the Tony Cristie song, Amarillo". "Don't worry" the doctor assures her, "every cu*t is singing it at the moment"............

Or have I got the wrong end of the peccadilloe yet again

............however, where as one often covers hundreds if not thousands of miles per year in the exotic car, one usually - and I emphasise usually, only covers a fraction of those miles in ones RIB.
