You can :
  1. Send chats : you just have to enter the text in the dedicated input field and then to validate it by pushing the return key ou by clicking on the OK button.
  2. Format the chats :
  3. once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list. You can also add empty formatting tags by selecting nothing and clicking one of the buttons/menu thus allowing you to add the chat text afterwards between these tags.*
  4. Access to the different channels : you can have access to different channels restricted to only some usergroupds or for specifics use of the chatbox. The different channels are accessible from the buttons on the left of the chatbox.*

    How much engine oil do you put in a 51 plate VW Golf GTi 2.0 8V?

    I have a 2001 (Mk4 i think) Golf GTi 2.0 8V. Yesterday i put in engine oil because the oil level warning light was on but I think I've put in far too much because when I put the foot down to overtake someone this morning white smoke started coming out the back. I pulled the car over, switched off the engine for a few mins and when i restarted the car and drove on to work with minimal revs there was no sign of the smoke.

    I put in 5L (the whole thing) which im guessing is far too much? it's the right kind of oil because i checked my manuel and double checked with Halfords.

    How much oil should i have put in and how do i remove the oil i dont need?
    I have to drive it home tonight, it's only 10 miles so I can't do too much damage if i keep the revs low yes?
