Thanks. I like to see a bunch of BXs doing that :D Even though the guy in the red takes the wrong line all the time.

Makes me think again what a laff it would be to have a stripped out GTi as a track day road car...

There you go. If you type google in lower case that bloody stupid icon comes up and screws up the link.

Strange to go to the bother of taking your rear-view mirror off, then leave your windscreen wiper bang in the middle of the windscreen...

That yellow/green BX with the black bonnet is as barry as hell. Looks hideous IMO. The red one is either running with rubbish rear tyres, or half-flat rear tyres, as a BX should NEVER oversteer like that, no matter how hard you provoke it.

A bit of a laugh I guess, but none of them appear to be giving it some proper beans.
this might be a signature

The link I posted never worked from my work PC but it does at home! Most likely a result of Jon's fiddling.

Apropos of that, Jon, can we please kill that google smiley? It's a word that's very likely to screw up posted links.

I've also noted a tendency for the troll one to appear in innocent words...
