My B is B200

I download the photo of B200-turbo
Wah, Great difference inside the car.

Any brother can take a photo for his own B-Turbo?
Thx

There's not a lot of room under the bonnets (hoods to the members in the counterfeit Surrey) these days. You can see why they do a lot of work from underneath with the car up on a ramp nowadays. It's bye bye to the home mechanic I'm afraid.

If a car 's hood is called a bonnet in the "want to be Surrey", what do you call a ladies Easter Bonnet????

Lucky that cars need less servicing now. In Canada we ( age showing ) used to have spring and fall tune ups as well as oil changes monthly in the winter. If you where not handy with repairs you where broke.:)

A hat, Bill :D

I suppose that if you trip up over something you have an Autumn & not a fall. (Must teach you guys English sometime) ;)

Best wishes from the original & genuine and very old Surrey (UK) :thumbsup:

At least there's no confusion in calling it an Easter 'Hood' :D

Bill, at least after a long drawn spring we are looking forward to some sunny and hot weather even in Richmond.

Cheers,

Martin

Be careful, be very careful, someone in England will try and take credit for "Richmond" as well as Surrey:D

Looking forward to the weekend, temperatures predicated to go to 30 C. Will have to look at the manual to see how to use the air conditioner:) Hope it still works:eek::eek: Since we bought the car have not had a chance to really test out the a/c.

:surrender:I have to admit that England has slightly better command of the English language than other areas of the British Isles. We watched a movie from Scotland and subtitles had to be used:thumbsup: and they where not speaking Gaelic. :big laugh:

Bill I also have this problem with some of the Scottish & northern dialects but I am getting a bit hard of hearing :eek: and that doesn't help. I suppose they find our southern ones strange as well.

PS. We certainly 'own' the rights on the name Guildford. :p

Isn't there a Richmond in the UK as well?:confused:

Bill, you really should turn on your A/C once in a while even in the winter. It keeps the A/C system 'lubricated' and especially in the wet coast where we get very humid air, the A/C helps to drive dry air into the cabin, and helps drive out moisture. It will also help avoid having that 'wet rag' smell which sometimes develops.

I usually just have my A/C button turned on, and just fiddle with the temp control. I believe we have a semi-auto system which MB decided to fancily call THERMOTRONIC system. A/C compressor turns on only when your pre-set temperature is reached.

With warm weather (almost) upon us, already planning the long weekend activities. . . clean out garage, wash, wax the B, polish the sills and install clear protector, golf. . . not necessarily in that order, either. ooops, forgot family driving duties as well.

Keith, I have 3 questions???
- Why are all of your posts today showing "1000 posts" - don't they count up?
- Why are Dereks posts showing 1000 posts too - are you a duet?
- What was your consumption for the first 1000 posts?:D

Yes the posts do count up but I put in a fair number of posts one after another.

It had turned into a bit of a race as to who was going to get to 1,000 posts first (I don't know if Derek was 'racing' with me or not) By my reckoning (but this may be disputed) Derek had 998 up when I reached 1,000 so I am claiming victory for the Brits :).

Mind you it is about the only thing we are likely to win we lose the football, :crybaby2:cricket, :crybaby2:Formula 1 :crybaby2:(& probably the Olympics :crybaby2:) so please let us have our little bit of glory.

I will concede that Derek is the more senior poster (ie he has been at it longer) and Mike must be the one posting the most posts in the (relatively short) time he has been a member/Owner. And I must admit I did go into a bit of waffle mode :eek: (translation talking unnecessarily :eek:) on the last couple of posts.

I don't drink so 0/1000 posts so hows that for comsumption

Looks like the movie Chariots of Fire all over again.:goojob:

But being a Canadian I think Derek should be given a special award since he spends 6 months a year shoveling snow and has frozen fingers most of the time.:):):):):):):):)

Well done Keith.

Bill
