Great stuff.

I was amazed that the Peugeot could even move with over 26,000 pounds worth of mods though.

We use kilograms to refer to the mass of the car. I'm rather suprised how a few of you don't know the british currency.

I was havin' a little fun with Satty, and wondering how long it would take for one of you guys across the pond to chime in.

I expected a bit more of a reaction though. How disappointing.
