What did you do to your R today?

Just back from the above, 1800 miles over 5 days, the R' never missed a beat, 36c daytime temps, 26c driving back through France overnight, she badly needs a wash (the car) due to insects!!!!

Superb roads, very light traffic. I drove the Furka, Susten, and Grimsel passes, The Susten is still blocked at the top due to snow.

The fact I was driving a right hand drive car I feel was an advantage when driving the mountain passes in some instances.

Here is a few photographs of the trip:-

Looks great.  Like the number plate style/font.  Need to get one like that, is it gel or pressed?

Thanks 😊. They’re 4D plates from utopiaplates 👍.

It’s amazing how the lapiz blue colour pops once machine polished. I had mine done (with ceramic coating) a few weeks ago. The lapiz blue reacts so well to polishing.


On yours it’s a pity they didn’t dry your brake discs after washing. All that rust is going to end up on your lovely clean alloys (love the colour btw, are these the gun metal grey pret reps?)

The R has been neglected today, taken the missus new motor to the coast, it's a nice drive to be honest definitely made a good choice

A good reason to neglect it!  Sounds like Mrs SMD is happy with her new motor!  😊
