    It's missing its car mats as well. I wonder if it's got a boot net

    It's at a Ford dealer, what do you expect. Anything would seem like it is fitted with a turbo :-)

    Heard from a guy who works at Booran Peugeot in Melb that there is in fact a turbo GTi180 which is, in his words "an absolutely mental car".

    ......and a Series 3 205GTi on the side.

    If that GTI 180 is really turbo charged I would love to know what someone done to the crankshaft to stop it breaking.

    Default Dealers..

    The dealer is using the "Arkright Method" of marketing. Arkright was the shopkeeper in the "Open All Hours" TV comedy.
    He would deliberately miss-spell ads in his shop window. Inevitably some "charlie" would come inside and smugly point this out. Charlie was now a captive customer and Arkright wouldn't let him leave empty handed!!

    Hello all you "charlies".

    Good old Arkright

    I never knew that Open All Hours made it to Australia

    Did Porridge, Going Straight, The Magnificent Evans or Clarence ever make it down under?

    A real shame Ronnie Barker passed away this year, He was a comedy genius

    Ronnie Barker's wit appealed to the Aus. sense of humour. RIP RB.

    The "Porridge" series made it here, the others? I don't think so.
    More power to the Pommy comedy shows. Our home grown or the American stuff is p#*s weak in comparison.
