United Kingdom 2009 Discovery 3 TDV6 HSE Auto Santorini BlackDiscovery 3

Just in case anyone runs out .......

http://www.businessballs.com/acronyms.htm

Hundreds of the Censored's. I use a subset (the funnier ones) as a warm up on teambuilding and manaement days. Taking the airline theme try ALITALIA - Airplane Lands In Turin And Luggage In Ancona or BOAC - Better On A Camel.
 D3 HSE MY09, auto, Santorini Black, Black leather, Black windows ... black IS the colour ...
Golf Mk6 GT TSi, Red - supercharger and turbo - the pocket rocket!
Gone but not forgotten:-
D3 XS MY08, manual, Java Black, black leather
1999 TD5 XS auto Oxford blue
1994 300Tdi auto Niagra grey


Life is a voyage of Discovery ... now where did I put the map and compass!

When there's room in my D3 for 7,
Climb in here Joe we'll soon be flying,
I can go just as fast with 7.

When travelling on Trans World Airlines, it’s best not to ask the stewardess if you could try her T.W.A. tea.

Delete and ban as appropriate.
 Brute force and ignorance, the D3 does the rest.
