    Oh crap is it that obvious? I stopped exercising about a year ago and gained 5kg. Fighting to get that back down.

    I think i'd much prefer the Z4 over the cruze :)

    Here's a funny car story (depending on your sense of humour). I got a new (used) Pajero last weekend, picked it up about 11am and went for a fish down a reasonably out of the way place out of town that's dirt road but 2 wheel driveable at 3pm. Came around a blind corner, P plater in a crappy old corolla comes the other way far too fast, see's me and slams on the brakes and of course loses traction and side swipes me. So had the car for a total of 4 hours.... Was I pissed off? Anyway it's going in to be fixed tomorrow and the P plater has no insurance so it will be an expensive little mistake for him I imagine.

    Yes, I'm always worried when shows outlive their original concept - in this case WWII - but the new adaptation has been almost seamless and Michael Kitchen is as excellent as ever. Also a great one for the period costumes as well.

    Isn't this always the way? My last car I had scratched, rear-ended and reversed into (twice) within the first 6 months of owning it!

    Now I drive around in my old bomb dishing out instant, lethal justice to rapid lane changers, tail-gaters, Porche Cayenne drivers and cyclists who think they are above the road rules.

    This sounds like an opening voice over for some new tv series!

    @henry carter that sucks mate, at least you're not at fault just a hassle and yep very expensive lesson for the p plater :p

    In the cruzes defences, its got pretty amazing fuel economy and while it won't beat anyone off the line as such once the turbo kicks in its got a bit of power to it... although maybe I just deluded myself not thinking that hehe.

    Haha Prince of Paisley that was a cracker :D id watch that show

    My bitter experience with uninsured P platers etc is - the car is probably unregistered, the driver unlicensed and the costly mistake will end up being yours.

    Cue car story:
    The offspring had his car in for service last year. Got a call to pick it up. "Its ready - just taking a test drive. Pick it up in 15mins".
    He arrives 30 mins later. Bloke comes out with worried look on face. "Sorry car is a write off".
    Yeah sure good joke.
    Nope.
    Took it for drive around block.
    Driver came out of side road on left and T boned it - write off.

    fxh, I'm not surprised. vast majority of accidents when you're about 5km to your work/home. generally because one let's their guards down on streets or roads they're well versed with.

    on another note, this morning on the way to work I witnessed a bus driver run over a pedestrian. a bystander sprinted over and dragged the man out from beneath.. pretty surreal. I was trained in first aid.. it could've been disastrous if the good Samaritan had inadvertently made the injured person paralysed by his actions.

    I didn't mean you look podgy at all - just I seem to remember you were super skinny. But maybe you are just more grown up.

    Hey Guys,

    I travel to Sydney a couple times a year for work from Singapore, and was wondering how the standard of quality tailor is. Price range for a full canvas suit? Everything seems bloody expensive in Sydney..

    My biz partner operates at carringbah, and I usually put up at Cronulla.

    I'm thinking of consolidating my shoe rotation and I thought I would throw this on here as a long shot. Any members that take an 8.5 in Loake want to shoot me a PM? I have some pairs in fairly new condition that I plan to get rid of, as I bought some C&Js not long after, and the Loakes didn't get worn much. There's a pair of Carmina Simpson 8.5s as well.

    Today's post-wedding Chapel Street take-wifey-shopping fit, x-posted from WAYWRN:

    [​IMG]
    SC, pants, shoes: Canali
    Shirt: Déclic
    PS: Alexander Olch
    Hat: Akubra
    Shades: Cébé vintage mountaineering glasses
    Belt: Stefano Corsini

    Wifey tried on a spectacular mid-length dress at Wayne Cooper. I already had my plastic out but she bailed at the last minute. Think I might just sneak back there tomorrow morning and buy it for her.
