what do you think, going for a new look this winter, it's the can't be @rsed cleaning my car look.





Just got back from Aberdeen last night, 400 mile round trip adn to say the roads were manky is an understatement. Need to get my winter woolies on and wash her. It is bloody cold though.

Was down at the Aberdeen v Copenhagen game. What a humping we gave them. It is probably the best I have ever seen Aberdeen play. Bring on Bayern!

:D I like it.

BTW, are those wheels gold/bronze, or is it a combination of the dirt and my crap laptop screen?!

Yep ,Thats what my car was like (Just think in winter we need a bigger screen wash tank just the same size as the fuel tank, lol) And no snow/slush yet.

My sister lives in Suffolk on a farm and its good long 1.5 mile trip down a single road dirt track to get there, Gutted when you have a clean car though ,her VW passat is brown/black/dusty, But one day it will be clean.
(Odd not having a handbrake on her car)

Think thats where Im going wrong as I drive with my headlights on all the time,Just want to be safe and seen as I drive "on the road of death A1307".

Another death last Saturday and the road will be changed from 60 to 50 MPH.(But people will still overtake).
You have to watch out for other drivers though.

As I have washed the car I will give that a try when I next need to.(To stop washer spray flying over the bonet from the lights)

Happy Christmas young man.
