Did you own any fast Audi's?
It's probably the only make of car I haven't owned!

Very nice! Used to own an e93 and the good weather spell last week certainly made me miss the convertible!

Where you see them mate you a link, I was racing the Aston Martin back home. To my surprise he couldn't get away from me until the twistys, straight line I was on his ass had a laugh coming home from it.

Did you see the Vantage spitting flames? https://instagram.com/p/BUFj-tthiQg/

There's quite a few photos on the Jacobs super cars fb and the page of the event ...the 140/240 remains understated so doesn't feature in too many of the albums! Image ImageImageImageImage

Cheers, maybe he was just playing with me, looked up the BHP for it and it's something like 560 :lol:

Was a good day out, would have been good to get a lap round the place, didn't fancy a half day at it, new breaks and tires would have been needed.

Seen that . Looks lovely although I always think of estoril as mx35i colour. Seems mineral grey and white are the mx40i colours.

Simple little pressure washer like a karcher k2 won't harm your paintwork. Snow foams like glimmer man stuff all available from procar carryduff if your handy. Davy will keep you right.

+1 for procar! Was in a few weeks ago and Davy was very interested in the 140.
I've a Karcher K2, does the job well and was cheap - but does feel it. Got it from homebase when it was on offer for less than £50. Argos/Halfords/Homebase/B&Q usually have them on offer at some point.

Autobrite Direct have good products as well and quite a helpful Facebook group also

Autobrite are great. I've a nilfisk washer. Was told they are good, it's been working great for 3 years. Think it was £80.
Anyone got a recommendation for pH neutral shampoo

I read Nilfisk slightly better than the Karcher due to metal parts in the internals instead of plastic. Where did u buy it?

Purple Velvet by Autobrite, Lather by Autofinesse, GTechniq G Wash, Orchard Autocare Bramley Bubble Bath - they're all the ph neutral ones I've used, I'm sure there's others. Not much of a difference between them all really, just price!
