MegaLOL But it would look very weir.... interesting if a driver is used to hold the steering wheel from the bottom.

Question to Italians, do you watch The X Factor (UK)?
What do you think about contestant Andrea Faustini? He made it to the live shows.
I think he sings great

Also, he seems to have a great shot on winning the whole thing.

Maria Wasiak* and Richard Hammond. Or Richard Hammond and Maria Wasiak. I can’t tell the difference really.

A couple of weeks ago I had to get a new clutch, the old one gave up on a hill, and I still haven't got/gotten [mixed grammar thing from yesterday, I use both got and gotten without realising which one I'm using] used to the new one. It's really soft (it was very hard before, in comparison to other cars I've driven) and I can't really feel what I'm doing, it's very disconcerting and I keep stalling. That said I really haven't driven much since then, maybe I need to go for a couple of long drives.

I'm considering that too. After I've moved into my new apartment this spring, I ordered IP-TV three months later and since then I've watched TV just approx. 6 hours in total - in last 3 and 1/2 months.
I see now that I have much more free time even if I do lots of other stuff, mainly various sports (6 times a week).

Have gotten sounds very strange to me, almost never heard or read.

I do have a TV-set, but I practically never watch regular programming. I'm just annoyed by the amount of advertising. I mostly watch DVDs or internet videos (Youtube) on my TV.

Freewayjim's videos are amazing on a TV.

I think it used to recognize between Have got (posses something) and the present perfect tense of get.

I've got the car = I have the car.
I've gotten a car = I've received a car sometime in the past.
I should have used a different object as man doesn't get car very frequently But replace it with whatever you want.

I've seen it several times but it sounds very strange to me. But it has some logic though.

Long drives? I think the journeys where you have to shift a lot could be better.

Greetings from Luxembourg. This is a very nice town, and the people here drive quite expensive cars.

Today I drove for the first time in Belgium. There was a Belgium police car that entered the motorway in front of me and imeddiately spotted a Hungarian truck and pulled him over. They noticed my Romanian license plates just after they signed the Hungarian truck to stop

Trailer is only material thing. Good the driver is still member of a family.

It often happens the spring (pressure plate) gets stiff over time, but never notice it over time, then you replace and, wow...
