Looking good Tony, nice day out, then get home to wash the S2, how do you find time to wash her when you need to spend time with the Le-Mans?

S2 normally gets washed before it goes back in the garage The le Mans you just cant keep clean in this weather and the A4 is just filthy despite being washed regular also!! The trouble are having 3 black cars is keeping them bloody clean!

No I think you'll find that we're the only idiots that wash our motors in the dark, and I'd hedge a wager that you'd wash them in the rain too, os when it's snowing a little. I've done this in the past and don't regret it, why have nice motors if you aren't prepared to clean them when you get home....mind you, I was told off by the neighbours last time I got the power washer out at 3am.....it's mainly more mature people that live near us anyway, thought the'd be sleeping, but a guy walking his dog looked at me like I was mental....then asked if I could do his too....cheeky barsteward, he was the local Police dog handler coming to see what was going on....

I DO it on purpose to wash mine in the dark, but not too many times the sparrow's fart time! When I walk around the village the neighbours cross the road....

I am the most pernikety person when it comes to cleaning the motors, hoping for some nice days to get the buffing machine onto the new beastie, gently of course, slow and steady. Gonna be in tip top condish for the next meet hopefully, well for leaving the hoose anyway...I'm hoping to get to Creiff this year with her, but might stick her on a trailer to keep the crap off her if it's a dirty day (ooohhh we all love a "dirty day").

7 sleeps and home (weather dependant)

I'm not sick of the photos, you just need to ajust the lighting / contrast setting on your camera.

Whilst the weather hasn't been as good as midweek its still been good enough to take my S2 out for a nice little late afternoon blast to one of my favourite areas and the roads were fairly quiet which is always a nice bonus here's a few photos not great as daylight was running out:
