    Gave her a clean up this morning - foam, rinse, light wash and dry with my “doggo” dryer. next wash I’m going to top up the coating by using the elixir QD. the angles on the side panels are crazy…

    The shape of the 5 I really like. Estate too. Funny though as I would have considered the 5 less flash than the golf estate!? 😂

    What’s your family truck?

    me too. Bmw do that well as any car de badged you wouldn’t really know what engine it’s got!! granted with exhausts you can figure most out but even now there’s nothing between 320/330/335d exhausts… whereas before it was single / double / split double. haha fair enough. That’s funny as I’m the opposite - I would far rather drive around in something small 90% of the time but have a box to cater for more stuff for the 10% big road trips… At the moment I am just hiring a big car for those road trips to get the space I need when I need it.

    lol well played!! I have been looking into estates since before covid!!! The world is conspiring against me getting one it would seem… haha the mk8 estate is still an option but at circa £45k it’s a tad pricey… 7.5R estate is around £20k less so quite tempting vfm and I know they’re good 😎 it would be the bargain option basically.

    As much as I need more space for “stuff” I don’t want anything too big - I’m thinking smaller but with roof box if necessary. rs6 etc etc are all too big. B3 is an interesting choice but I’m not going to go for an alpina. It’s m3 if I want fast or otherwise will be a 30/35d if bmw…

    I’m going to give it the winter to see how the wheels get on with all the salt and whether I give any kerbs a little too much attention… but hopefully not! if I do change them I am thinking gold - maybe the same frozen gold as the m2 cars, albeit I would actually want a gloss finish rather than satin, so not “frozen” gold, but meh hopefully you get the point lol.

    You’ll not get rid of me that easily! Haha. tbh I think the oem wheels are a really good design - as previously hinted I may just do a colour change. the exhaust is my primary focus for changing anything, although I am tempted to swap it in for an m3 touring so I can take the doggo out in it - effectively it would be “for the dog” loool

    yeah agreed. I was surprised as had assumed they’d work well but they manage to make the car a little boring… just need to get myself another golf then problem solved!! Haha

    Sat the bbs next to the car to see how they might look… not that they would fit properly. personally I think they worked a lot better on the golf than the Audi… wasn’t expecting that.
  12. damn I forgot about the hair dryer approach… would have given that a go had I remembered. I polished it out with Menzerna medium and a bit of final finish by hand. Then applied some QD elixir too up for the coating and all good again. that sounds awful for your car - I did find myself whining at the neighbours cat that he wasn’t doing his job and pointing at the results of his lack of effort on my car… then he started rubbing up against my shin and purring at me and I realised it’s a cat and Clearly the heat was getting to me as I was losing my mind! Loool
  13. Got to work on this etching tomorrow… been sat in the sun all week whilst I’ve been away 👎
  14. seen a couple of them in person now and they do look better in the metal imho. Bang for buck they’ve got the rs3 beaten - but I’d still rather have the rs3 (although I am keeping an eye out for the new m2)
  15. “lack” of low down grunt is perhaps a matter of perspective- it’s still rapid even if you don’t rev it out, it’s just very linear so really gets going higher up. personally I’d rather have a tame car low down and smash it top end when playing - makes it a better daily 👍 in terms of working the engine, dropping a gear isn’t that much effort and would be what I would do in my golf in any case so no difference there. that all being said, surprised they’ve not done a twin scroll turbo - would “fix” the low down grunt relatively simply… the linear delivery must’ve ha
