Not too late, 20 past midnight as I write this. Just off to bed now as
it happens. Funnily enough, about 3 weeks ago I dreamt someone had
crashed into my RS4 and driven off. When I woke up and realised it had
only been a dream I was really chuffed.. until I remembered I don't
even have an RS4... just the S4.. hehehe
