Whatever you do make sure you don't visit me at work, you'll be overcome. 500,000 car tyres under the same roof. After a while you can't smell them anymore.

That goes for _almost_ anything :-) Those plug in air "fresheners" are a pet hate of mine - aside from the repulsive stench they emit, they give me an almost instant pain in the back of my head. I'm sure they damage your brain somehow :? Surely only people with damaged brains would willingly buy them a second time :-)

Cheers,

AJ

Hi Al How the devil are you? :D
I didn't notice the new smell with my Conti 1.5. But the 1.9s are so nice. Yep a mate came round Saturday. My 1st visit since she went. And he caught me sniffing my rear tyre :oops: His face was a picture (they are clean tyres) :shock: :lol: :lol: They smell just great. Just picture it. You meet a guy in a pub he says do want some thing wide, black(or white but extra for that) come in different sizes but you will love the smell -high as a kite. Pc plod will say its a class A drug and lock me away :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Sorry off to bed spent all evening bleeding Maguras :oops: :(
