    Hi, folks! - Had to fly into Heathrow yesterday totally unexpectedly...rented a 675 from a place about 7 miles from the airport for the ride up to Durham in the AM. Trouble is, I'm staying at a friends in Central London for the night & I can't get the bloody steering lock to unlock!! It seems that ignition barrels in the UK are different from US versions & I can't figure it out, none of us can!!!? + The rental place already closed hours ago, so they're no help.

    If anyone can help I would REALLY appreciate it, as I absolutely HAVE to be in Durham by tonight...it's after 2.00 AM & I can't sleep with worry.
    My mate Phil doesn't have a phone (total div!) but his girlfriend does....so could someone please call me & give me some advice on how to get this thing unlocked?
    Fortunately his girlfriend lives across the hall - please PLEASE call her at 020 7930 4832 - ask for Liz.

    Justin, I may be Irish but I did not come up the Thames in a bubble this morning. :lol: :lol:
    That joke was doing the rounds years ago.
    The other one of the time, was a number for Tony and Cheri, guess the joke has just got to California :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
