    everyone always ask about the name thing, im used to answering it, my first names Tamim but I go by my middle name mostly which is Elid

    and oh my god can I not wait until I get the car, I love it already, got a lot of plans

    Im looking to LPG covert it, is there anything in particular I should look for? I personally dont want the boot space to go so im actually wondering if it is possible to just do the little spare wheel one. Worth it? how much does it cost to do one? im hearing around the £2,000 mark.. worth it in the long run I guess

    Depends on the mileage you do really, takes about 2 years before it starts to pay for itself but seeing a 50p/litre fill up would be nice lol

    And the name thing...arabic?

    Got some guy at uni on my course called tameem al ahmad tamimi, long winded so we call him the doctor

    thanks guys

    I get told i look arab a lot but not exactly there, im Bengali.

    yeah I have heard that about the LPG pricing aswell, does LPG increase your MPG at all? or is it just that much cheaper to buy

    LPG actually decreases the MPG

    Have a search of the forum, Ian S had quite a few answers for me when I was thinking bout going LPG but decided against it.
