I'm well aware of the 1.8's spitting head gaskets like nobody's business which is a real pain as they're the most popular ones second hand, and I can't afford to insure a 2.5 V6!

There's something about the way the facelift models look that just sits right with me haha, plus after seeing the sort of power my dad's old completely standard 1.4 Rover 45 used to have compared to my K12, it's just so tempting... That and the handling/braking on the 45 was awesome with the sport pack so can't imagine what the MG version would be like.
 
ooooohhh o_O ....that tail pipe would look sweet on my baby :cool:
....but AC3's is out at the end of the month.... :p Special edition is £80 y'know LOL

Nothing wrong with buying Collector's edition games. I have two of Sonic Generations! http://i.imgur.com/Uxin1.jpg
I think that safely explains the profile picture haha!

Fair enough! Thought I might have being dim, I'm thinking of buying another Xbox sometime soon, as I sold my last one after I got bored of it, but Forza Horizon, GTA V and the NFS:MW remake by Criterion look way too good to pass up!

Aha! It is a remake! I thought I was going crazy when I seemed to remember owning Most Wanted on the 360 already!

And yes, my Sonic fandom is pretty strong... I've imported every Sonic mega drive game from Japan, and Sonic CD - http://i.imgur.com/JKlod.jpg , which is really hard to get hold of!
 
....that does explain the avatar/pic rather well James :p
I'm very much into Assassin's creed..... I have every game (including PS3, couple on Xbox, PSP, NDS and even PC)
only a few Special editions plus the official hoodie/s sent over from Canada...and t-shirts...and toys LOL
*is a geek* and I love it!

I have an old Sega Saturn and "Sonic and knuckles" was my favourite on that, Love Sonic 3 on the Mega drive2 :p
...it's not the same on the PS3 Sega collection somehow :(

Tchaaa you can pick up an xbox 360 (or dare i say PS3) rather cheaply now (pre-owned at Game or HMV, even ebay or a boot sale...etc)
...I don't think i could go without mine any more...I use it for watching my Blu-rays too as it's hooked upto my surround sound system (another £30 bargain!)
My original 60gb PS3 got stolen in a burglary a few years ago and i had no idea it would get me that upset
...to have to re-complete AC1, AC2, GTA4, Tomb raider etc etc all over again <_<

Emulation never is as good as the real thing. Although it lets you record videos of yourself being a massive geek...

I wasted many, many hours on the original Most Wanted on my PS2, got all the way up to owning an Aston DB9 and being one level short of winning the Beemer that's on the cover and couldn't do it so gave up haha. But Criterion's Burnout Paradise has to be one of my favourite games of all time, and so criterion's mad flare added to the need for speed pedigree is going to be amazing.

Mmm, looked it up on Amazon and you can get a 4Gb one for less than £150, but to be honest if I where to buy another 360 I really ought to buy a TV haha, which I was planning on doing anyway and almost did until I realised I have literally nowhere in my room to put one.

LOL ...I had very much the same problem for a while...
had a crappy 28" CRT TV and an old metal high sleeper bed with a futon under it, so...
To fit my 32" FullHD LCD sony I had to change the stand it's on, so i can fit more on the shelf with the TV/under it, and had my dad put shelves above my TV on the wall...
as well as a unit next to it and a tall unit on the other side. We ditched my old bed for one with a slightly smaller footprint and bigger gap underneath, to cram full of stuff, then moved it into the corner by the window
swapped around my wardrobe and drawer units and put a bunch of shelves on my other wall...
I have literally no room in my room it's so full of stuff. the only bit of wall space left has a painting on it...and i mean painted on the wall itself, not hung on the wall ^_^

I don't have anywhere to hang my Assassin's creed limited prints or my fantastic new limited edition Avengers movie poster i spent an hour framing up the other night!

...I'm a girl so i have lots of clothes and handbags...but i'm also a geek so i have tonnes of books/dvds/games/cd's and I like to paint...so under my bed is crammed with paints and canvas'! I need a whole second room just for my crap ideally, can't wait for my brother to get kicked out...again... XD
You can barely even see my awesome cowhide rug for all the crap :p

I think my room would be huge if i wasn't basically a compulsive hoarder *facepalm*

Do you have any wall space...Hang the TV on one of those kinky brackets? ...perhaps?

Ah see my room was designed to fit it's purpose, with my desk, bed and cupboard I have just short of enough floor room for someone to lie down with their feet sticking out the door. And I'd have a TV on my desk but I'm too much of a nerd and already have a 24" and 22" screen hogging up all the space haha.

Oh dear....I guess you could hook it up to a monitor...won't be the same though :p
I think i'm quite lucky with the size of my room...it was my brothers...he moved out...I took the room...he moved back in and got stuck with my old room ;)
probably about 12 foot by 10...ish I do have a desk too...not that i can get to it (is also covered in stuff, and full underneath too)

...I really need to have another clear out, but much like my dad i pick something up and say...oh, that'll come in handy one day LOL

Yeah with my old 360 I had a VGA cable and speaker adapter to hook it up to my monitor but it didn't work very well and was a right hassle most of the time so it just didn't get used. I know the feeling of having lots of "handy one day" items littering my room, I fear to open my cupboards these days for what might fall out.
 
Those germans, they're crazy!

On a completely different note that's only very vaugely linked to the thread title, if you where looking to squeeze a bit more power out of a K12 on not very much money, what would your recommendations be? I'm trying to find something to stop me shopping up and buying an MG ZS for the man-points :)
Just rob a bank
