Well no matter how I shake it I won't be fitting my sound card to my new build. I thought I may be able to wangle it, but the fittings from the GPU will pretty much rule it out 100%.

So I got a U7

PC Part's etc are hold for a while.

I have been after a new car for a while now and saw this last night, and got it this morning

It's really nice to drive, got a turn of speed on it and it's got abit of noise although that needs working on

Stereo need's some work as currently no hands free or audio streaming but I am thinking of getting one of the Android head unit's for it, and already looking at replacing the silver outlined grills with solid black ones and replacing the silver 16" alloy's with some 17" or 18" solid black ones.

It's a 2011 BMW 320D

I am really impressed with it, you can just feel and hear the quality in it.

I had a 2.0TD Mondeo and it just didn't feel right, despite sounding ok mainly due to hearing the turbo spooling up when accelerating.

It just constantly felt like it was going to stall in 1st gear unless I was at 3.5K RPM, and it just had no gut's it was that slow that an old banger of a transit van that my brother sometimes has to drive, left the Mondeo for dust despite being fully loaded and a shed on wheels.

This thing though is a whole different monster, when I left the dealer I had to go to a petrol station to put some fuel in it, and I put my foot down to get out of a junction and it just threw me and my dad back in our seats and just took off.

Going for a drive later, as I need to get use to driving it for when I am driving to work given the motorway is full of roadworks and the normal, roads are as well so don't want to get in to a smash but getting a dash cam as well.

Doesn't matter that your Beemer needs a few fixes, you can take care of that and what a car you'll have once it's all done!

Very nice car.

Just finally completed Assassins Creed Unity, Syndicate and finally Origins and loved them all, I know pre-ordering in general is a no no but I'm in love with AC so got myself the new AC Odyssey regular edition on Uplay.

Should refund that and get it on CDkeys... it's cheaper. I wish I could but it's EU only so it's invalid for me to buy

I pre-ordered it on Green Man Gaming but for Uplay as there's also the Steam version but considering you have to launch Uplay anyway I just bought the Uplay version from GMG

Only just seen your reply mate, and I'm jumping straight to CCNA since part of my Uni was the entire CCNA curriculum without the final exam so most of the work is already done, I just keep choking at the exam prices
