what a bunch of tossers!
i am loving the A55 at the moment, no idea why someone would do this?!
Someone needs their arse kicking!

Does anyone really leave decent krabs on lower-offs?
Just because their temptig doesnt make it ok.
I'd love to hear these guys or girls justify there actions. Proper f**kwits.
It is baffling. Tony Stud has glue in's apart from one expansion bolt and someone has pinched the hanger! I would love to catch someone doing it....
