    I'm still not a fan of the roof spoiler as it spoils the clean flowing shape of the roof line.
    Carbon mirrors aren't as bad as I thought they would be though.

    As long as you're happy thats what counts though Tony .:)

    Like the mirrors (sort of) but could do withouth the spoiler. I do love your enthusiasm to always find something more to do to an already well sorted car. I hope you win/luck-in-to enough money to buy a genuine "supercar". Can't wait to see what you'lld do with an Aventador!!! :)

    Some of us have been stockpiling this stuff for years. I'm confident my car can survive a five year siege effortlessly in gleaming detail. And I'm still bombarded with offers from the various suppliers online. They won't sell me anything now. I was self-employed/freelance until February. Now I'm unemployed indefinitely. I'll be making McGuires broth in a month or two. Yummy.

    Really like that, mirror covers look great, you really need some nice number plate holders though

    You're not alone, I have a 12 bottle wine box full of stuff, plus a DA with all sorts of pads and probably a few other bits scattered around the garage, none of which gets used these days (health problems preclude that type of activity) so cars get a trip to Waves franchise at local Tesco's - they're good, careful and only use AG products (and they know I watch them like a hawk!!).

    Hopefully you have put money aside for a rainy day. I was also freelance/consultant for most of my working life and always made sure to have a reserve for rainydays. Thankfully, something like this never happened.

    I too will never run out of car care products. The shelf above that in the picture has a DA polisher, boxes of cloths, pads, windscreen buffers etc not to mention the buckets with the foam lance and 4 different wheel brushes.

    There is a fine line between looking nice and overdoing it!

    Don’t go for the panamerica grill just that little too far I would say.
