Thanks to Magick for the T50 mod, it inspired me to get a pair and mod - happy I did.


You living out in the Western Desert or something?

Confusion with °C and °F, perhaps?

Ick bin ein Kanadian:D I work in celsius and i'm old enough to have been brought up with the fahrenheit scale. (worked in Kelvin too but lets not go there.

 

112 F is still near as dammit to 45 degrees and as the song says "The Western Desert lives and breathes at 45 degrees":wink_face:

 

Wait a minute, :eek:I thought you were banned?

37 years ago I had two years of high school Deutsch. This tells me that you should have written: Ich bin ein Kanadische. However, *I'm* not a Canadian, so I should really say: Du bist ein Kanadische.

Old Mr. Budnarowski would be so proud... tongue.gif

Apparently spell check does not extend to Deutsche.:D Kanadier would be the current literal. However as you are using the High German Du, your useage may in fact be more appropriate.

I converted it to Fahrenheit especially for our US friends as they were using that scale (unless they enjoy 70 - 80 Celsius with a light sea breeze :blink: ).

What do you want?

is that :-

 

was wollen Sie?  or,

was willst du?

 

The first is formal, spoken to a stranger/acquaintance, whilst,

The second is spoken to a family member/close friend.

What does this have to do with cars and/or audio gear? tongue.gif

I suppose you've all seen the info on the 2015 Z06, particularly the power numbers. Sitting down? They're; 620bhp & 650 lb/ft of twist, courtesy of GM's new LT4 supercharged powerplant. That's right past 458 numbers and into MP4-12C territory. They're claiming a 2.7s romp to 60 and 10s in the 1/4, while making over 1.2Gs on the skidpad. All for under $100k. Again...

I didn't make it much past: "Zwei Bier bitte." At that point, I figured I had learned everything I needed to know.

Holy poop, am I seeing that right. It actually has a 7 speed standard tranny. No Paddles???? Wonder if it's a Paxton or Roots type SC.

 

The again, it's no Z28.......:wink_face:
