Could paint that any colour you like, it'd still be gopping.
Those two massive fake vent panels are hideous. Hopefully they house afterburners for making a quick getaway from the taste police.

That image again looks nothing like the one I saw on Friday, no micro spoiler present, which is why the contoured roof structure stood out

Very nice, these f types look awesome and sound even better. I'd still rather have the legacy though (and the change!)

nonsense, the finest bavarian hops, water and malt always worth a visit. 

 

I was playing a soccer match on the 10th and there was the beer fest on that weekend also, all well and good but i was in Korea all week and had a flight direct from Seoul to Frankfurt then catching trains to Nurnberg and Erlangen in time for a couple of Steins on the 9th, was not sure what day it was Saturday or how i even managed to play a match but all good and still alive.

Them rear exhausts are ridiculous, I hate the current trend of fake exhausts (both the visual aspect and the fake noises they are generating also in some cars), the Jag at least has decent quad pipes

I was pulling off at the time she passed, around 60mph and accelerating.

I am off to Farnham tomorrow so will check for scorch-marks.
