    Some of the names here are very interessting, here is how I got mine.
    A few of my friends started calling me revmaster due to my driving style and I added on the T for Thomas.

    mine comes from my initials, JP, and when I was signing onto my first forum, I was building a turbo project car. Boost was at the forefront of my mind.

    I'm not that keen on it anymore, but It's too much hassle to change it...

    Mine is a shortened version of one that I've used previously. It all started some time ago when I tried to use my own name to register on a site that had about a zillion registered users (ebay I think). Every version I tried had already been taken so I used my dog's name with some other bits added on. Now it's just the dog's name :D
     
  5. Sir Sidney Rough-Diamond is a character from the greatest British film ever made - Carry On Up the Khyber. The filmed stared Sid James,who is a kinda hero of mine,so that why really. The little face pic you see is of Sid.
    If you ever want to find out why the English are barking made and what English humour is,I'd recommend you track down a copy of the film.Be warned though, you won't have a clue what the hell they are saying or why its funny !

    This reminds me of when I and another buddy
    drove over to switzerland to pick up some
    M3 parts. We were sitting around during lunch,
    and these Swiss guys kept on saying some funny
    sounding word "mdrruuuuuuuuuu" in every other
    sentence (I only understand perhaps 20% when they
    speak), so Im looking at my friend thinking what
    the f*** are these guys talking about, until it dawned
    on me a "mdruuuuuuuu" is a "M Drei" which is
    German for an M Three. It only ocurred to me because
    I thought of Daniels SIG name, which is MDruu,
    but I never new what the hell it meant until I was in
    Switzerland that day. :) and BTW, Daniel, a lot of
    Germans dont know what it means :) I know
    because they've asked me, and when I tell them they
    have a big aha effect. Also, I sometimes wondered
    what you meant with your sig name "M-Fart" but,
    I guess we wont get into that one.

    John "call my car a MDruu and Ill kick your door
    panel in" :)

    I was curious where you got this name from, I think I have to get a copy of that film.
    You wouldn't have a link by chance ? I am sure a few other people might want to see the film also.

    Thomas :)

  13. I can't imagine the film was released anywhere outside of the UK,so finding a copy may involve using UK eBay. Without wishing to be rude, I just have a vision of anyone not from England sitting there watching and going,WTF ???? :D

    My original statement of it being the Greatest British film, was a slightly to tongue in cheek. The Ladykillers( not the Tom Hanks remake ) is in fact the best.

    I autocross my 320i a lot. Now it's pretty much purpose built for just autocross, but somehow I continue to drive it on the street.
