Just got it - let see, 5 days from Germany to Vancouver, Canada - not too bad. However the package definitely took a **** kicking but I do not think the book is damaged. The wife has it in her hands now, she will wrap it without taking it out of the envelope so she does not know what the book is about (its pretty easy to figure out its a book...).

Cheers,

Mike

Open the site with Google Chrome and it will ask if you want to translate the page to English

Do they play football with packages? I´m shocked, even if 5 days is better than I expected! I hope that it is not damaged!!!

Been looking at some of the numbers, a quick question:

On Page 190 - 1997 Turbo numbers.

If you look at C02 (America) there are 739 pieces for (1997 Turbo NA) and 180 for (1997 Turbo NA) - what are the differences between these two numbers since they have the same column header?

Cheers,

Mike
