    Quiz : Hello John, Got a new motor ?

    As happens every now and again, I have a new car so I'm posting up to see if anyone wants to guess what it is as these sorts of threads have sometimes been a bit of a laugh.

    The rules are simple. Post up a question which has a yes or no answer and I'll answer it.

    e.g. Does it have more than 3 cylinders ?

    I can tell you it is a car not a bike and that I'm quite excited about picking it up (either today or tomorrow).

    If you are one of the few people that I've talked to about what I might buy next, perhaps hold off on the "Is it a (insert car here) ?" question as that might spoil it a bit.

    Is nobody interested in the mechanics of it ? Drivetrain, engine size, power, colour, interior features, 0-60 ft times (for those who remember those threads)....

    And for clarification... its wafty but not boat-like wafty. More silky-smooth wafty. Steel fist in a velvet glove as the 200 adverts used to say.
