Inspection 2, new front tyres (PS4) and a clean MOT. Also replaced the rear wiper pivot assembly which had finally siezed up.

Unfortunately I ran out of time so off to Black Boots in Chesham on Friday morning to sort out the tracking/alignment. Have heard great things about them and am looking forward to seeing if the stories are true.

Thanks guys, don’t want to advertise new cars till they are home and deal is done. So tucked up now.

Maybe I need some green stripes on the floor to continue the theme?

I finally finished cleaning my car for next weeks BMW Sommerfest as I am entering the Pride of ownership. I dont have any great expectations of winning but just decided to make a weekend of it as the main show is on the Sunday. I have won once or twice before and come third another time, but its more difficult as the vehicle is 17 this year and now on nearly 130K.

It looks amazing and even more amazing given the age and mileage. A credit to you and your ownership especially as it is black!

I reached a mileage milestone yesterday on the A14 on my way to Cambridge. (My passenger took the photo).

The car is still running perfectly. I will treat it to annual oil changes from now on.

Not sure when the inevitable hosepipe ban will start, so gave mine a wash. Always scrubs up nicely :)
