Over the last three weeks this poor car has been subjected to carrying shedloads of stuff for our house move is so grubby both inside and out that it looks like its neglected, has done many many miles ferrying is round to our wedding, family dos and quietly ticked over 192,000 miles last week. 

So today we went for a run for our pleasure and ended up in the Peak District. I thoroughly enjoyed driving it up snake pass. We even had some AS meet up as we bumped into @Ghosty in the pub!

It truly is the most capable car I think I’ve ever owned! 

Tomorrow I might even wash it!

The sporty looking Hyundai is ace, I was all over one on the forecourt of the then dealer in Little Bushey.

The Toledo went for some wheel alignment therapy at Formula 1 Auto Centre and the guys were ace, they loved the Toledo and oooh'd over the simplicity of the mechanicals. 

Steering much more pleasant and will take it back in a few weeks to have a free check and tweak of the tracking if required, no need to book, just bring it in :)

i meant the plates on the car but hey :P

Plate pics will happen.  I've had to order them as they're a daft size. 

There'll be a post in the grump thread when it comes to fitting the rear plate. Looks like the rear light panel has to come off.....

No, he has a hybrid finish on the car, and doesn't want to damage it. Perfectly sensible, if his routine is correct a good foam and rinse will do, but finding the right product is hard so as not to strip the finish. Then there's drying to avoid marks. Hence the big blower. I used to use a 1992 Hoover Portapower in blowing mode, haven't got that anymore but other vacs with blowers exist. Dog grooming dryers are popular too

I miss detailing... Must do the zx soon, I've got enough stuff I think for a full go over
