      When you reconnect the flapper valve.
      I didn't realize how much I missed the quiet noise below 4000 rpm.
      Next, soften the V3s methinks.

      Lame haha.

      That said, I've been running my V3's on full soft for two years and they're prefect for daily use, so that's something that I can't say is a bad idea.

      Hahahahaha, I had the hots for that bitch that got mauled by a croc in that series, Return to Eden.
      So I used to love that James Reyne track, reckless, featuring clips of the croc attack. It's awesome.

      Hi,

      I know I am getting old because I purposely built my new rally car to showroom specs. That means I've kept things like aircon, mufflers, cats, carpet, roof lining and radio. The i-pod still works! I know this will make the car slower, but ...

      I've done plenty of rallies in a car that is so noisy you can't talk, it is hot as a boiler room and rough as guts. Every rattle is heard loud and clearly. I've loved it, but time to move on to something more comfortable

      Cheers

      Robbo

      And what if you think that full soft isn't soft enough?

      Did you drive it to Sydney by any chance? Saw a silver R32 on the Hume this week

      hahahaha! well,.. if it makes you feel any better, my pubes started going grey 5 years ago, so I shave the man garden right down. Ironically, my current GF loves the little bits of grey in my head hair, hehehehe!

      I bet george clooney appreciates this irony??

      the motherfarker banks on it, dude! his greys are his industry.

      my input: you know your gettin' old when you start feeling these little random pains/jolts around your body that you never felt before. greys come years before this.

      1. You eat Voltaren Rapid 25s like TicTacs

      2. The little man in your head says "you could go to jail for that" whenever you look at something younger than 18.

      3. You only just found out what an "optical inch" is

      hahahahah I'm going to an all night beach party tomorrow night (it's a pretty big one), and I found myself:
      *booking a private car to take us home because the taxi lineups will be horrendous and I don't want to have to deal with the great unwashed
      *calling up the organiser asking "When is Booka Shade playing?" so I could book the car for the earliest time possible as I (and everyone else) don't want to have to stay until the party ends at 8am

      pretty sad... That said I can still do a post 3am finish pretty easily these days, so I have something left to hang on to

      oh and my ****ing pubes aren't grey either... holy ****.

      I think anyone who has contributed to the 7-seater thread doesn't need to post here
