    Driving into work this morning at 6.30am :( and approached a cross roads controlled by traffic lights as you do.

    Lights were red on my side so I slowly drew up behind a Mercedes Vito which was stopped ahead of me whose hazard lights then started to flash.

    Imagine my surprise to see a guy slide out from beath the back of the van into the area between my front bumper and his rear one!:eek:

    He was trying to do a quick repair to his exhaust apparantly:dk:

    Did you dip your oil? Maybe he was stealing synthetic oil to sell in China!

    Had he been there while the Vito was moving? Thick foreign accent? :)
