45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: John Bowe High Performance Driving course

the Advanced Driving Course was a day that lived in Infamy .... I can't even deny anything as there is video evidence *sigh*
It was a great amount of fun and I learned a great deal.
The Hi Po course was a different matter .. it was the best time I had had with my pants on. The guys are pros and make sure you can get the best out of the car you are in. The best part was that the only things that suffered were the brakes and tyres!
Ian... I watch out for gutters.. you mind the sand traps right ???
