Filled up the washer bottle again (5th time in 3 months) and have taken fuse No36 out to stop the headlamp washers working as I am fed up with filling the washer bottle. Also checked oil, coolant and tyre pressures.

Now I know what I'm going to do today, good thinking Batman.

been racking up the miles in the 35 due to father in law being taken ill, what a car to eat the miles having done 400 miles in it on Sunday and another 300 yesterday

error of judgement yesterday was not taking my 500 TA which is equipped with winter tyres having got caught up the the snow in Kent and Sussex on M2, M20, M26 and M25 last night on the way home, despite car running in full Stage 2 and given i managed to never come to a stand still the car just coped admirably and linear throttle map meant it just reacted as i wanted, its looking sorry for itself and snow is now melted from within the arches (where it froze)



now its finally settled i am coming around to the TSWs lol

I drove past it twice during the day and could see it sitting there.

Sun was shining so had fun with the snow foam!  Gave it a good clean, air in tyres, topped up windscreen wash, coolant and oil level check

Tell me about it!!   :angry:

I just soaked some bird sh*t off mine, (should learn not to park it under trees), and they must've eaten something nasty - I've never had marks left on the paint afterwards, but three splats have left a dull mark on the body work.  Damn things!   :undecided:
