1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Ri-freakin-diculous! An S55 for $101k??? There's a new one on eBay (800 mi) for less than that. Maybe someone is laundering money.

    The money laundering comment may be spot on.

    No reason to ever pay 1600 for 16 pair of used shoes. You might get 200$ for the lot on Ebay.

    i think it's more PC to say that 'those car prices are mentally challenged'

    and maybe they seem irrational now, but what if he had pounds of cocaine in the back, ala John DeLorean?

    Sorry to hear that - was looking forward to getting a pair of shoes since some of them were actually my size.

    Ah well.
