FULL FAT
Previous | 12 | Next

I thought this was a PHism but I saw it on here today with mention of the FFRR if you need to differentiate between a Range Rover and a Sport can't RRS be used, they even call clios FF when talking about cup packages or something. Calling normal coke Full Fat Coke is bad enough FFs.

Why would RRS help if you're describing a FFRR?

Oh b*llocks you're right

It is how they are referred to by the owners of FFRR, RRS, Disco3/4 etc etc. :?

Ergo it is correct.

for examplification

I've seen the Disco3 and 4 referred to as D3 and D4 recently. Without context I thought the posters were talking about small diesel engined Volvos.

They are badged LR3 and LR4 in the USA, but I agree - D3 and D4 is stupid. Sounds like something Rev would have said. ;)

I might start using the term semi-skimmed as well if it bothers you that much.

Because if you're describing a Range Rover RR is enough, I presume FF started to distinguish between that and a sport.

I would counter that RR isn't enough, since it's no longer just an RR; RR is now a brand (including the Ewok, the FFRR and the RRS).

Rev is correct, of course

:lol:

I swear you have an insult monitoring system running on here. 8)

It is just forum talk though. If you see someone driving a FFRR and tell them' "hey that's a nice full fat range rover you have there" they'd probably punch you in the face :lol:

How about not having a sig at all?

Impreza WRX STi Spec-C V-Limited Toshi Arai Edition/ GTR/ Panda 100HP Pandamonium/ 316d

Until recently I thought that the FF part meant the V8 petrol version, for some reason :?

Well I agree with you.

As do I.

I've also heard it used to describe non cup equipped Clios.

It's used to describe the full fa...sorry, the normal RSport Clios. So mine was a FF with Cup chassis, not a Cup.

Well that's just daft.

Yeah. I think it should be Full Fat for non-Cup equipped cars, semi-skimnmed for cars equipped with Cup chassis, and skimmed for Cup cars. :D

it would be better, though the fact they already have names also helps...!
