    Good spot Loz, as Si rightlymentioned the issues around the ethics of Chinese products, and I know it’s in the past but the Ze Germans were partial to a bit of slave labour as well, but if their kettles are homemade as the blurb suggests on their website, then I will give them a chance, and to be honest I put my principles aside when I bought an M3, so buying a kettle shouldn’t give me too many sleepless nights ;)

    In overdrive now, just found this website

    I should also declare that I bought one of the first T595s in an effort to prove to all my mates that it was as good as our Jap superbikes, and the English could compete ....... needless to say it wasn’t, broke down regularly as was a pile of cack, and left me stranded in various countries around Europe, which meant I endured 2 years of serious piss taking from said mates, that said, unlike them, I grew to appreciate how many beautiful places there are, which you learn when you have time on your hands sitting by the roadside waiting for a breakdown truck :)
