    Decided to show some love to the latest workhorse by giving her a good scrub inside and out!

    Japfest I presume?

    EDIT: On second thoughts, looks like it isn't.

    Did the Porc in the background give it away? :D

    It was the Bromley Pageant this year. Haven't done Japfest yet.

    Parts are fairly cheap and plentiful, lots of choice too. The cars are very reliable.

    Fuel though. Well I tend to average around the 25mpg mark but then I do drive enthusiastically. I have managed 36mpg on a run to Bournemouth and back.

    With the better weather, time for a bit of work on the track car. First track day on the 20th April.

    Full service, oil change, new plugs, new battery. Add new intercooler, 4 new slicks, pads, etc etc.

    Not the best then, I average 25-30 driving at good speeds, around 40 when I take my time on duals/motorways

    Just purchased a new (second hand) car for myself. Porsche Cayman 3.4S manual 6speed in Cobalt blue with all of the upgrades you could want for comfort :)

    It will ultimately replace my Civic which loves money being spent on it but im growing up so that will be the go to car from here on

    Project cars in the future may include a mk2 Mazda MX5 just to keep the tinkering side of me happy and the Porsche working :D

    Pics tomorrow

    Didn't enjoy giving the dealer £150 for its first service though, usually do all that myself lol

    Well jell. Pretty sure that's just the car that I would have for a weekend car, if I could only justify a weekend car :/

    I thought you were being exceptionally clever, and I liked it, until I realised that wasn't a Duster :/
