    I thought about this the other day,

    but was thinking putting how much how much each of us spend on bits and bobs and have a running total just to see for instance the amount of money that is spent on cars monthly or something,

    but I was thinking that might be daft as people don't always like to say how much they spend

    Have yet to do this in my car.

    I cracked one out up its exhaust. But it's alright because I waited for it to cool first.


    On a more serious note, I haven't done anything today because I'm waiting on a new pair of Dual Optics - and I just got a PM so they've probably just gone in the post.

    Spent 5 hours taking all the wheels off, cleaning polishing and sealing them, blacked the tyres, and cleaned the calipers. Took it for a 3 mile drive just after to dry the discs, and when I came back the wheels were covered in brake dust. Excellent.

    Drove it round some back road with the back box off. Was fun as its dry, but my ears hurt.

    Also ordered the replacement exhaust.

    Dropped it in for a service and some recall work this morning, it will be having new revised back lights fitted, they are also testing an Intermittent fault with the sat nav (basically froze for about 10 seconds once and i'm being a drama queen in the hope they'll load on the 2012 sat nav to cure it)!

    Get it back tomorrow.
