British engineering at it's best and still going strong.
Well done John.

British engineering is still the best. Its just a pity that the vast majority of Brits are unpatriotic and buy foreign.
Makes me cringe when I see war veterans turn up at various functions in German cars. We have become the most unpatriotic nation on Earth.

Thanks for all the comment everyone. Tracey I couldn't agree more. It is interesting that the "German" Mercedes F1 cars and engines are made in Britain!!! So much for German engineering that gets talked about so much.

Fantastic machine

I discovered today that all 4 cylinder BMW engines are made in Britain. Its not enough though.
I agree with Tracey regarding lack of patriotism in this country.
