I got on "ooohhh weeee" out of my little girl today when I floored it around a car and the IDE screamed into life !

Even my 4 year old has taste !
My mate has an IDE and I'm sure he wouldn't agree- he's never done changing pencil coils and injector rails and all sorts. He'd be cheaper with a dci with a runaway turbo !
