at least you can....

my mechanical knowledge is pretty much non-existent, always wished I had done some training.  My b-in-law used to work for Mercedes in Germany (once got offered a place in the McClaren F1 team..) and I was always in awe of his knowledge, bloody handy bloke to know when I was buying a car!
