Wow, I never though I'd hear anything louder than a Delta fan but that is... what sort of rpm does that thing do?

Depending on the housing market, I think I can get an Elise as my next car. My mortgage tie in is over in two years, so if house prices haven't crashed then it'll be easy for me to remortgage and get the funds for an Elise - which I think is the best looking road car out there :) I haven't seriously looked yet, but I have no clue where to get one from (new). So where's the factory? :D

:D

It would be awesome, however, to have a sequential tranny! I wonder if it could be done for around 5k-6k U.S.

I drove a sequential tranny for many years...
...on a tractor!

hey Spec'... where did you find the video m8? The original link doesn't work for me now, and the URL (minus the Assen-bmw extension) doesn't work :confused:

Or you could maybe tell me where Windows (XP Home) downloads this sorta stuff by default - coz I've already downloaded it once :( I wanted to/hoped it would let me decide where I downloaded the file to, coz I've got a 'Downloads' folder specifically for... erm... downloads (:D), but it just started downloading automatically... to God knows where ('tain't in 'Downloaded Program Files')!?

Hmm... Link appears dead - it was linked from a link on another site. If you used Windows Media Player to open it, there might be a trail from WMP to the file on your HD.
