Well I have heard of and used Splitfire spark plugs in many older cars including Alfa Romeo engines from the 1980s. Last car I used them in was a 1995 SEAT Ibiza GTi 2.0
However have not used them in a 147 ...assuming that is what the mechanic was talking about

Re: huLLo...;-)

Based on my impressions of the poster I'd hasten to guess that this spit-fire thing is one of those go-fast 10 cent resistors they sell on ebay or one of those magical, power inducing filter cones that get hawked on late night T.V.

Of course it could also be this: http://www.hotrodsetc.net/menu.html

19 inch rims? Are you mad?
And you are 17? Isn't it illegal to drive?
Custom Wide bodykit? Please don't give it the corse/saxo treatment

Well... I do wear sarongs at the weekend from time to time, but David Beckham says that men wear them too

This has absolutely, surely, definitely, got to be a wind-up, right?

If it's not, then I would give the following advice, in order, on the things you're thinking of doing:

Rims: Don't, you'll ruin the ride.
Bodykit: Don't, you'll look an idiot.
Spit-fire: Don't, you'll look like an idiot who is on fire.

I think that pretty much covers it...

Re: huLLo...;-)

Also, the word 'Aight'. You know that the Ali G character was ironic, yes? He's not actually supposed to be cool. He's taking the mickey out of white people trying to be black. It doubled the irony when all the white people who were trying to be black watched his show, completely missed the point, and took him on as some sort of holy icon. So, copying the words he uses kind of makes you look stupid.
