Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Best update your profile Andy, NAs for the win? You've flogged one and supercharged the other right?

Also if you have actually bought an Oooooodi as you call them I will cast the first stone lol

On the forum home page your user name appears in the top RH corner. Click on that for a drop down box & select my profile. That page then allows you to edit :)

I'm not so sure it will accept typo's though e.g. Audi :sofa:

A sad and reflective moment this morning. Before the start of my regular Tuesday morning (ice) hockey game we all gathered at center ice for a minute of silence to think of the victims of the Humboldt Broncos disaster this past weekend.

 

I realize that this forum is largely UK centred, so there will not have been the extent of media coverage as here in Canada and many may not know what I am referring to. In brief, the Humboldt Broncos are a Junior A hockey team based in the small town of Humboldt, Saskatchewan. Junior A is high level hockey for players aged 16 -20. As is the norm for this type of team, they were travelling by bus to an away game when the bus was involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer truck carrying a load of peat moss. The team bus was carrying 29 souls, of whom 15 are now dead and 14 injured, some critically.

 

Odd as it may seem, a group of old guys (age 55+) playing hockey on the west coast feels this tragedy deeply. One of my teammates is from that part of the country. Another friend recently left the team because he moved to Saskatchewan; a family member of his was the head coach of the Broncos and lost his life in the crash. Others played Junior hockey in their youth and have spent countless hours on similar bus trips through the Canadian winter.

 

As a hockey player, and a Canadian, this tragedy has touched me deeply.

Tried removing some smoke tint from the rear lights, internet research says carb cleaner is good.  So, I now don't have smoke tint on the rear lens, but  I have a cracked rear lens and it's not attached to the body of the light.

Still don't want to wipe it down with an abrasive cloth. No Leather or anything mate! Gonna invest in a hose pipe (the old one is perished) and a squishy plus a nice leather and some soft cloths

Kimbers what you definitely don’t want is a leather you need a drying towel, two buckets with grit guards and a set of wheel woolies 

leathers scratch the hell out of paint work

I just want to wash the car! You know, Soapy water, a sponge and a quick wipe down, I don't want to start my own valetting business!

Have a look in the detailing forum, have a read up and you'll end up with a shinier, better car for it 👍

No, it was on the back of an AA recovery truck.

No. I believe it was on a hill with the tailgate open to the prevailing tailwind. Soooper silent mode.

:o:o:o You used the 'S' word. Go stand in the naughty corner, right now.

Microfibre, or better still lambswool, mitt and nothing else, otherwise you might as well have a cleaning kit that comprises of these..............

@Bibs Personally, I wouldn't be using that microfibre cloth in your ValetPro photo there - it's touching the ground so is only fit for the bin!!!!!!!
