You get the idea?! :lol:
Hmm I thought the request was for "fork 'andles" and the shop keeper came back with 4 candles to which big Ron replied "no - fork 'andles handles for forks"

But anyway great shows them I particulary liked the cafe sketch where they had a conversation along the lines of "LO F U NE M" - "S V F M"

:D I know I am full of useless info :roll:
It is lucky that it seems BX 16v owners do have a sense of humour, puns about needing one are not required but dare I say we do tend to have the last laugh 8)

I have two ICVs sitting in the scrap pile. Can send you one for the cost of postage but cannot guarantee its any better than the one you have. We don't run them on our car perhaps one of the local 16v guys could test it on their car for you.

Hi Gary! Thank's for your help.
