    Be fair lads, he's probably had that filter a couple of years, and he's only just got round to fitting it.

    I wouldn't mind a toy lol maybe if I can get this job and stuff but I might get a m/bike instead get back into that I'm undecided, diesel is handy though especially for towing and also long jaunts to see my family as it's good on fuel.
