Isn't Japan incredibly expensive?
Seems a great place to visit but from what I've heard it costs a fortune to get there, a fortune to stay there and a fortune to eat there. This is compared to the UK which isn't exactly a cheap place to live

I think I'll settle for the Scottish Motor show which is on in a couple weeks right here in Glasgow

Just got your email Dave cheers, still a bit of mystery...
Hope it arrives soon, may save my problems while I save my pennies for the new M-Troniks Cirrus which looks sweet especially since it has built in blue heatsinks that will match the Cuda
