I'm calling it German flu.

Usually when the garage whore gets cleaned, it's a fast and painless process. Mitt glides over the paint and soon after I'm microfibiring to minty fresh. German dirt (unlike French dirt) clearly doesn't want to give up easily. However, phase one cleaning now complete.

The garage whore enjoyed the trip and so did I. Nice to meet some of the forum legends here, many of whom I had started to think, were actually not real people- just sophisticated software impersonating someone!

Hi Joe- that was a while ago. Glad you like the car. I saw Dean at MBW a few weeks ago too

I'm feeling left out of the highway man-flu epidemic.

Went at the German grime on my car today with a jet wash and 7 litres of Iron-X. A couple of small war wounds she now wears with pride. Other than that, normal service has been resumed, and relax.

We can cuddle next time I see you. I'm rarely sick but I felt rough for the whole trip. Are you sure it wasn't....11 litres of product used to clean the car? Laughing

I must say fellas - respect where it's due. My favourite car in all these photos has to be Mohitos "REN 993" beast - absolutely stunning!!!!!!!! (and that silver arrow motorway snap is beyond EPIC)

Zingari's 964 Anniversary comes a very close second (minus the "Janet Frazer" model donning the Barbour attire blocking the view).

Thumb I was caught off-guard Embarassed

I must admit I'm warming to Phil's blue/red combo although the accelerator pedal only appears to have one position - on the carpet judging by the speed on the autobhan what

Thanks mate! So that means it's on the upper end of your pricing scale . . . done all its dough at 25bags!

One unexpected bonus for me is that, courtesy of my lactose intolerance and the continental love of cheese/butter/milk, a suit that was getting a tad tight now fits me perfectly again despite all the Cheers
