Oh I expect I want it! I want everything. OH says someone only has to mention anything at all and I will want it. Especially in black or silver. I want it. Can you ship it? FOC? Thanks. I'll pay you by paypal when the guy who paid me for something last month ... when his payment clears. Thanks so much.

You are thinking of the Mk2 Model which is outdated, read the opening post carefully, it says "BRAND NEW", so it has to be the Mk4 Model, which every fool and his dog knows has the burgundy button!!:doh:

Can you clarify if it is the Mk4 Model or not, as the price indicated is excessive if it transpires that it is the older Mk1 Model with the "green" button opposes to the later Mk4 Model with the "burgundy" button.???
