I believe these are illegal from a safety point of view in case you slice up pedestrians as they go over the bonnet! :shock:

I seem to remember that RR had a big battle over the Spirit of Ecstasy in the States after bonnet adornments were banned there. :)

Ooh, actually I rather like that!
But since Paypal is required they can bugger off.

Surely if you want to slice people up properly you wouldn't use the spirit of a well known night club drug, you'd stick a V8 chainsaw on the bonnet!

Oh, and I'm pretty certain the best way to piss the CCC off is to tuen up at an event and dare to have a good time...
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

'Please check the traffic ordiniance of your country before installation'

Ok, I've tried to check the Ordiniance now but failed. Do you think he means check the traffic or the niance? What is a niance anyway? Or could he have meant check the traffic before the dinner dance? Only I havn't been invited to a dinner dance since the night of the rave in McDonalds and I didn't check the traffic beforehand. I actually got run over by a kid in a Saxo with a bodykit on it in the carpark. So maybe these are some kind of safety device then? Yes, that's it they're a safety device! Why else would they be held on by double sided tape on a car bonnet? Maybe if you go over 31mph they fall off and puncture your tyres so it slows you down a bit? Then again maybe they are some sort of sight for your dash mounted bren gun so you can blast inferior cars out of the way?

I think a couple of descreatly mounted Uzzis in the grill between the fog lights is much more effective. :lol:
Of course they will slow you down a bit when both are fired together.

Anyway it was Rolls Royce that had to borrow CITROEN'S suspension system because they couldn't come up with a better one of their own i seem to remember.

Regards Kermit :) :)

You are quite correct Kermit.
Although I'm not at all sure how much time Rolls spent on hydraulics systems themselves, I'm pretty sure they just went direct to Cit and said "how much please, thanks awfully".

Why this talk of guns?
Nuclear, thats the way to get shot of unwanted scum.

I agree with the Nuclear bit but don't you find it difficult to drive through the vast expance of carnage not too mention the problem of being blinded by the flash. 8)
and all that fall out it just ruins the finish on the paint work not that you would be able to see it.

Having spent 4 hours today ......sorting out a leaky pipe on my tzd ............I can only hope [assume] that RR improved the system somewhat.
