So I've bought a knock-off 50cc go-ped to get around Le Mans next year. Jalop input required:

Wow. Boy am I angry at BMW. Their service intervals are insane. I've just replaced the spark plugs on my E46 at the suggested 120k mile interval and the thing feels like I've lit a fire under it. Not to mention that I voluntarily (no advice given) flushed the PS fluid this weekend and the steering feels like new - the

And so arrives the day where I told my dad we'd do enhanced inspection II on my BMW to show him how easy, cheap and rewarding DIY maintenance was (he's got an E46 too). Doing it on a driveway, not flat and it's grey/trying to rain. And I have a nearly broken middle finger on my left hand.

Anyone know any Solidworks? My chassis goes from full and proper to pretzel every time I mesh the damn thing so I can run it. I'm new to this and really struggling.

You outside the UK may not know but we've got a politician over here we actually like (just the one). He's Boris Johnson, mayor of London and he's a bit of a legend. He manages to be completely bird-brained, full of common sense and generally get everything right all with a veneer of bumbling idiocy that makes his
