Oh no I know they aren't exclusive to BMs but they tend to around where I am to be show offs who couldn't quite afford a true sports car (doesn't apply to the diesel warriors), bear in mind there arent any motorways to cruise in Cornwall, haha although saying that the worst things down here at this time of the year locally know as silly season is when the city boys come down and ruin the karma with Chelsea tractors.

I don't think you can call modern diesel lazy... i too much prefer a diesel over petrol for many reason but some like the torque, torque is what makes a car feel fast and you don't have to rev the hell out of it to go.

 

The only one thing about petrol in my opinion where diesel struggle is the sound, nothing else, it takes alot of effort to make a diesel sound very sporty other than that, diesel wins for me

When all the Townies rock up and live in their holiday homes for the summer the towns and ports actually appear vibrant.

When they all bu##er off home again at the end of summer we're back to ghost towns again.

Maybe we are maybe we aren't :lol: (ingenious use of the word diesel)
I much prefer ghost town, the roads are easy the shops are empty and we get our clean beaches and countryside back, on the other hand men no longer have an abundance of females to twitch, it's time to dust the book of birds off. (+1 petrol engines)
