I hope you realise what you've just done.

JB is the spiritual home of the spellin an grammur elite....the gates of Hell and wrath therein will duly open when they read this error...it gets worse, you've also included a top of the range marque, an Audi, so there will now be an outpouring of cost analysis from the many owners on here....which will duly morph into performance .

A missing period is also troublesome. Especially in the COBOL language.

Some years ago the local newsagent (in Hook, Hampshire, if my memory is correct) had an advert for a Triumph Spitfire in the window.

It was handwritten and the wording went along the lines of “Triumph Spitfire for sale. Low mileage good body lady owner regularly serviced”.

But what about the car, one had to wonder!

I hope the owner keeps it washed and waxed.

Meanwhile in another part of my brain:
The mighty comma... turning a Billy Joel song into a Beatles song.

I am the the Piano Man.

I am the Piano, Man. Cuckoo cachoo.
