    Drive it like you stole it for a few miles, Get it really hot and it helps to clean the cats and remove any crap.

    You would be surprised by the amount of emission lights it turns off.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    it means taking it out and thrashing it to clear out the cobwebs so to speak.. if you have coked up engine its a good way of shifting the carbon deposits

    Or, go into town, park in the middle of the high street, pick up a brick, smash an old lady over the head with it, throw it into a jewellers, grab some diamonds and then get in and drive home. That should sort it...

    Basicaly pretend your in Italy. Dont change gear. Dont stop at red lights and certainly dont stop at pedestrian crossings. Only slow down if someone flashes you and remember just because someone else is over taking the car infrom doesnt mean you cant over take both at the same time! To be fair the jumping red lights is more of a sothern Italian think, but the rest counts for the entire country! :-) Helps remove any soot build up etc
