    Saw a model S in Finland airport late last year, great looking car. Wish I could afford one.

    I would get a Ford Focus RS. 2016 models will arrive soon. Low profile look and exceptional performance.

    Can vouch for this. Got an XR5 too, great little cars. The new RS is awesome bang for buck, get on the waiting list now though.

    4 engine components (from memory), hence low maintenance. Even and consistent torque, acceleration below 8s. No need to top up fluids (not sure about brakes). No getting gouged by petrol companies. Range is sufficient for city driving. Probably will look really good too.

    Not sure what AUD pricing would be, but to me, a near absolute no brainer.

    Tudor Black Bay is beautiful watch. Breitling superocean 2 is also an alternative. I have one and love it. Oris aquis date is also a solid watch which I love to wear - total tool watch look.

    Thanks for the suggestion - its good to know there are places that can repair it if need be. I don't expect it to last forever after all, and part of the natural wear and tear is what makes it yours (or mine) I suppose, like creasing and natural patina on an old pair of shoes.

    That's exactly what I'm looking at actually. Good taste! [​IMG]

    Yes. Walk out again.

    There's something a bit creepy about this post.

    Sitting in Yok Sod on the corner of Pitt and Goulburn sts. A nine foot tall Thai ladyboy just walked in and sat down on the next table with his mates, who are smokin' hot and, er, real.

    This is all well and good. The problem, as I see it, is this: how can one ever be sure?

    Thankfully this is not a real, practical issue for me as I am sorted. However... here's a question for you all. Is this ladyboy issue a first world problem, or a third world problem? Discuss.

    I was reliably informed that you need to spot the Adam's Apple. But then I have also been informed that these can now be surgically removed.
