The new fiat 500 advert says "suns out" when they obviously mean "sun's out".

especially during summer (i.e ICECREAM,SUNSOUT...). "

Well that's a pants explanation if ever there was one!

Stand up and be counted as a true pedant!

Go on! grin

A 1.2 lounge, in white. Was supposed to go back and get my side stickers but haven't actually got round to that bit yet. It is lovely.
