    Glad I'm a busy person.
    One of the reasons I'm in business for myself is so I can take time to do those things I want when I want. More than normal amounts of time reading about my overarching passion is one of those, so that all goes the way I planned. Gotta learn to take some time for yourself. Anytime I find my business consuming me and becoming the master I take a deep breath and remind myself that my business is a means to an end, not the end in itself. Besides the lovely distractions of my fave beer, chocolate and red wine, these days I can take that deep breath and grab the Sprint keys and disappear for a day. Just me, my music and the turbo. Sometime a friend and his Sprint too, if I'm lucky!

    you say he doesn't suffer fools?
    well a fool in his eyes is someone that has a different opinion
    He abuses anyone with a different point of view
    Anyone that has to call themselves a expert is usually someone that has less knowledge and just needs to call himself that to make up for his poor knowledge

    He is entertaining if nothing else
    agree, except for the last sentence. i don't find him entertaining at all.

    Falco - John Cadogen and 'facts' are polar opposites.

    Any engineer worth their salt doesn't end up doing YouTube clips.

    The guy is a first class moron!

    haha, don't mind me, I'll have a whinge being so busy but I do like it my point is I don't waste my time much on most if at all on any of the motoring sites on the web.
    Infact, the only ones I do check into are the links provided here.

    My understanding on the Alfa exclusion is that they basically questioned why their opinion was so far out from the worlds media.

    It was done with consultation with Alfa Australia and initiated after finding the suspension geometry was way out on factory spec.


    I think this action is a make of respect and probably the right call. Alpha has given them another car to test while they investigate the ABDC version.

    According to both parties it was out by enough that the faults they felt behind the wheel are explainable.

    They are giving Alpha and the car a chance which is ok in my book.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.
