It will be the Fieldmaster with all electrical wireing and the second batterie. Front and rear lockers will be ordered as well for sure.
Regarding the colour I will probably take a red one with black roof. So I can alway see which one is mine :)
I wonder if anybody else likes the red metalic colour?

The engine is the hardest part. Till yesterday I thought I will take the petrol engine as the millage will not be to high. Otherwise I can use the car easier for long distances if it does not consume to much on the highway. So right now I think it will become a diesel.

Nevertheless there is no wrong decision with the engine in my opinion. Both are very good and have their own strengths. I will enjoy whatever I choose.

The red INEOS has chosen is a lovely shade IMO. I'm not normally a fan of red cars, but "Queens Red" is very nice

That's a very good statement, I agree: "Klagen auf äußert hohem Niveau" nennt man das wohl. ;-)

Welcome to the Forum ...

...und viele Grüße aus dem schönen Odenwald ?

BTW: Can you tell why they at blacklandy.eu completely removed the Grenadier thread? Had it become too threatening?

There is a Grenadier-thread at the Off-Topic subforum. All posts will be deleted after 60 days.

emax is far longer on this forum than i am. I did not know that there was an emax on this forum when i chose my name. It was quit a suprise to see his name after looking trough some posts...There is a "max" as well here, so it can get quite confusing for everybody...Nevertheless my Avatar shows the most beautiful red TD5. This is quite unique!

That's a real photo? Not photoshopped? Wow, looks awesome, indeed! ?

As far as I am concerned: No.

My nick is an acronym to the honor of the emacs editor which I use as a software developer. My swiss-army-knife for developing, compiling, debugging, editing and for countless other things under linux. And for me, there is absolutely no higher decoration for a tool than "swiss-army-knife". Not kidding and not flattering on you.

I have been using this editor since 1992, and though I am learning something new about it really every single damn day, I have after 30 years(!) just scratched 5% of what it is capable to do. That deserves a tribute and hence my nick.

The comic tells a lot. It's however a hard-core-insider joke. ;-)

well the meaning of my name is far easier to guess.
The photo is real beside the whitened number plate. No photoshop needed this beautiful evening!

That's nice to hear. And than you know what I mean ?

... and probably understand the comic ;-) .


BTW: I only use vi once on any new machine: to configure my emacs.

@bemax

When you sell the TD5, please let me know. Maybe I get unreasonable. Not kidding.
