Following on from the previous editions:

Winter 16/17 - https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&...

It's time for the annual dirty car thread.

Some good entries last year, but think the i30N was the most impressive



Mine is going well so far, having just returned to Southampton from Minehead in filthy weather.



Over to you.

Mine had its last wash last week. It’s already filthy I’m onto a winner. First hurdle I’ll be booking it’s service very soon and they always wash it.

Dammit, saw a REALLY dirty 330D yesterday but didn't take a pic. The rear windscreen was clean where the wiper was and otherwise totally opaque. What should've been a blue car was brown. Honestly had me wondering where the fk they'd been driving it.

I'll get a pic of mine at some point.

Here's mine. About 3000 miles worth coupled with living in the country and even a bit of minor wading in the floods recently (still some twigs stuck in the front bumper). I was going to spend last Saturday cleaning it top to bottom but someone drove into the back of it last Thursday (you can just about see the dent in the boot to the left of the SEAT badge and the ding in the top edge of the bumper) so it'll get a full detail and paint correction while it's away being fixed next week.

My other half's CLS was in a bit of a sorry state. Over 2 months of driving although being silver the car itself didn't look too bad. The wheels were pretty indicative.



Thankfully I gave it a wash last weekend.

So following the pic above of wife’s Touareg 60miles after a valet I decided to get it washed... again. So what happens... well the lads ex rings up in a muddle saying she’s stuck in a field. I ask how far in is she, around 2 meters she tells me .

Needless to say her car is smothered head to toe and ours, well it looks like a 4x4 should, again rolleyes

Best pics I could take in the dark earlier

Did you ask her what she was doing in the middle of a pitch black field? hehe

Indeed. How on earth did she end up there, and why did you help an Ex-girlfriend?

Ended up having to use some muddy single track roads last night, adding more filth to the XC70. Coming along well.

Not for me? All links in the original post work and all pictures are showing?

A whole load of them parked in a mates field and had a camping thing going on, it rained all weekend turning the field into an absolute bog..the land owners 4.0L jeep managed to get them all out except hers which had sunk until it was bottomed out by last night. Couple of small snatches and diff locks in low ratio and we had her out. Summer tyres are not the one for mud though... I was sliding around like I was on ice !

She’s my sons ex girlfriend and a lovely lass, everything is friendly between them so helped when the phone rang.
