I know that the UK has different names and terms. Since I'm a lousy american, I have one question, WHAT is the "Boot" ? Please inlighten me to this, since I'm still learning how to translate the UK languae to my native tounge. Have any of you seen the new R GTI or the new Thunder Bunny? My thought is, that it's a "Honda Killer" . As you say, cheers. :smiley:

The boot is what I believe you would call the "trunk". From alot of the films I have seen it is where you lot put dead bodies, lol. Have a nice day

Rotfl, this had me in stitches  :laugh: :evil: :cool:
And I'll think you'll find it's our language that you've bastardised, but that's a different matter  :drool: :nerd: :grin: :cool:

It if can't be achieved with brute force and ignorance, then the Haynes manual will have to be read!
