Re: Use of ZF 8-speed auto gearbox (BMW and other makes)

Re: Lane Conflict

Growing, but not acceptable unless the lanes have right turn arrows in them when they're OK to be there but not to be over (under) taking. So thoroughly anti-social. HTH.

Re: Clutch - heel & toe

You really posted it innocently meaning "where should I place the heel and toe of my shoe"? Get away with you! :D You should have posted something about how supple or otherwise your ankles are, because it's about how much you can pivot your foot from the heel in a vertical plane. I can't d...
