You've probably already lost £10k in depreciation with all the miles you've put on the car!

1.Home- South Manchester (well Stockport area but we don’t use that word!)
2.Ex wife’s home (East Staffs)
3.Kids (reside as line 2, except for weekends)

Ex wife likes to tour the world, currently Dubai (wtf would anyone go there unless they had to!) So next 10 days if I go home and back the school run is 140 miles per day Sad leaving home before 6. Today I could only face half so typing this from the local farm shop, where boredom is setting in...

Of course respite at weekends Thumb Actually no there isn’t! the eldest is playing footie Saturday in Coventry nooo and Sunday in Hilton nooo And when he doesn’t, he’s referring in Burton on Trent nooo
Herman yellow could actually reach 30,000 miles Grin

Hmmmm I agree and I keep telling mrs SBSP the same. I have my eye on a nice set of Carrera S alloys with a new set of winter Michelin’s, expensive though the SBSP bank account is drained, and Santa ain’t coming this year nooo
So you run yours throughout the winter? Do you apply the ACF yourself?

I ran it off and on through the winter a couple of winters ago .....not when there is too much snow down as they are so low the front end does a great job of clearing the roads for the rest ....i have never had any issues with the conditions , traction is never an issue , onl6 clearance if it’s a real Scottish Highlands type winter but TBH we don’t get them like we used to !

I put the ACF on the KN myself and will be doing the Turbo next week ....lots of cardboard down is the trick until it stops dripping then dump it .....

I ran it for long enough to see how dirty I could get it before I cracked .....!
Pretty clatty was the result .......!

Traction is transformed with winter tyres ......night and day ( or should it be winter & summer .?)

Bought a set of 991 19’s with nearly new tyres earlier this year from a nice chap who had sold his GTS ......

Gosh. Looks so different without the black trim. Makes the Yellow look flatter. Unless you just flatted it?!

How long did it take to mask it up?
