Haha not on the DB9. Think ABBA if they had decided to become prison guards instead of a pop band smile

Today was just topping up with 1/2 a litre of Castrol as I checked from cold and was just below the minimum line... all this due to giving a good blast at Rockingham on Sunday.

Next job will be to drive and see if I've brought on any rattles lol

Its been over a month since my last drive, and that was a short run with passengers. Started thinking about lack of use, should I keep it, perhaps get something cheaper/older to sit in the garage.

Working from home today, late lunch and the sun was out, so went for a quick spin on my own. No more dangerous thoughts, just gotta drive the damn thing more often - life affirming!

Not quite today but tackled this the weekend after I got the car. Not quite sure why the dealer thought it was acceptable to send the car off to a new owner with the steering wheel in this state but an hour decontaminated it and reduced my chances of Ebola, Sepsis, HIV etc tenfold.

After watching plenty of videos on YouTube of people with various ideas of how to do it, I just got stuck in with a wire brush and a bottle of Dettol...

Wire brush??? Wow.

Looks ok but I was told to just use a micro fibre cloth in washing powder water and gently grips it around the rim twisting back and forth. You might lose the fibres if too rough.

I’m joking, I used a nail brush and a very light mix of Ariel liquid and water.

I'm too excited to wait til Monday but I'm booked in with Bamford Rose for their 25bhp upgrade (N400 update with High Flow 200cell cats) Noise power and a sharp map cant wait for some wow factor.

For your Alcantara wheel... Head to Footlocker and get the suede cleaner foam use a microfibre to apply and it will come up fluffy and clean wink

Made it to the opening (yesterday) of Caffeine & Machine. A decent AM turnout with some unexpected examples.

Of course, you should keep that, superb!

I wanted to get down to the Caffeine and Machine opening, but it's half term and my wife is busy with a new venture so driving down for the day was a no no, anyway the roads were well salted up here since Saturday so my Vanquish is hibernating in the garage.

It was gorgeous. The interior looked fantastic - even through glass.

Spent the weekend driving around spectacular roads in mid-Wales, some great drives, especially up here on the around ranges.
