That's why we drive the way we do: we're all totally lost!

Maybe its the warmth from the hand, maybe its just the few minutes and the battery has recovered a bit...

By the way. One display says "Pioneer Team 2007 Prices" and shows a whole load of cups and trophies. Is 'prices' German for 'prizes'? --- or is it a wonderful misprint?

And...

God, I bet it was noisy! I'd love to see all the gadgets, but I couldn't stand the volume! Looking at the pics is nice and quiet

And... I think your colleague looks much nicer than the stand girls!

Oho! What a misprint, I hadn't realised. Shame on those we-are-always-so-superaccurate-Germans!

It was actually super fun! Yes, it was loud but in a nice way, no bumm bumm bumm that you thought your ears were falling off but clear powerful sounds. Quite enjoyable!

Please allow me to explain she mean boom boom.
In German Boom is spelt as bumm.

Honey, bumm in English is pronounced as bum. Like backside.

Looks like she's feeling Indian already!

I'm gad there wasn't too much bumm bumm

Models on stands may be all the perfect shape, and all that, but one can never get away from the 'plastic' impression all that posing causes.

(Suppose I should give one the opportunity to prove she's real after all )

Sorry for pecking on your grammar, but it does seem that you are losing it badly these days.

Also bumm bumm is perfectly alright since we also say kumble, kum kum (the dots that go on our women's forehead) etc. We cannot take 'english' stands only when it suits us, we got to accept the other ways of the script as well. J/K.

This Brit think that the "Boom Boom" of one of those living-inside-a-speaker-housing car set ups is nothing like the kum kum that women (and men) put on their forheads.

How do you pronounce Zoom? I'd say it almost like zoo with an m on the end --- and boom rhymes with that. (Uhhh... I think there's some subtlety qrong with that explanation, but it's well past my bed time!)

Please do sir!

I, for one, would like to know more details about it.

Thank you.
