"Does she burn oil?"


"Eera she would if she got it."





Most people who have decided to travel out of the country to buy a car and then import it and go through the process of paying the VRT etc., will always justify their decision.

Bought my last four cars in London. Saved quite a lot of money. Never had a problem, and much easier than I thought would be.

What's the point in going to all the trouble of doing something if there is no justification to do so?
