Talking The weekend has started early ; )

Well after spending a week correcting the paint on my new (Well to me it is ) baby, I couldn't not drive her any longer.

The sun was shining at work so I escaped on time and ran home as fast as poss lol. I know it's silly but as I opened the garage i had butterflies in my stomach and was so eager to get out in her. I can't believe what this car as done to grown up arse lol. I'm like a kid all over again

Anyway after stating her up and going for a quick photo stop to capture some of my work I went to her new watering hole. By the time i had a nice full tank of Tesco finest I went for a blast into the country. I F'ing love this car!!!!!

Getting used to the toys and never get bored with how these things deploy their go

Man she draws a crowd. it's like being in my old Noble all over again. Well the short trip turned into a big one lol. She's now in the garage and waiting to be used for work tomorrow. Can't wait for 0500 hours (Normal start time for me : ( ).

Here's a couple of pic's. Any excuse I know lol

Just out of garage and ready for blast off!!! Well once warmed ; )



Quick photo op before she gets dirty lol

Maybe she draws a crowd because you've done such a fantastic job making her shine?

Looks great.

Funnily enough, I just noticed you've got a Skoda Fabia VRS and an R35 GT-R too. Small world.

Thanks Adam

CT17, yeah got a VRS which is a cracking little motor. I thought you had one after seeing a post recently where you stated you had a front wheel drive Skoda that had 200 bhp or similar. May I congratulate you on your choice of cars lol.

Looks bloody lovely - I was going to get a black one but may have to check a red one now.

I used to have an E46 M3 in Imola Red and that really suited the colour too - non metallic but just worked for the body shape.

Having not seen a red one in the flesh, would you say that your pictures do the colour justice?

Looking good mate

I never considered red even though every other car i've ever owned was red. If i had seen one looking as good as yours though i could have been swayed.

Fingers crossed for some good weather at the weekend. I'm supposed to be heading out early doors for a trip up to the scottish borders all being well

I think the pic's above do mate but not always. Seems that bright light really shows the colour off when taking pics. If I'm honest I have never been one for a red car. Blue's my fav!! But I see a MY2010 last year at a meet and couldn't believe how well it showed the lines off. I hadn't seen another for a year until I rolled up to view this one. Lets just say I was in love straight away and the rest is history.

Got lots planned for the weekend so I'm sure she'll be dirty by Sunday night lol.

Hmmm, that's how I felt when I went to see the M3; I better go and take a gander at one.

Post some photos after Sunday, who doesn't like dirty pics after all...

Can't day yet mate, but it took a while to correct. I'm sure any colour woiuld have been the same. I'll let you know after a few careful washes ; )

Oldbob - Funny you should say that as a couple of mates said similar today lol.

Now I don't want to bore everyone with my constant Blogging, as I'm aware I'm probably in the Honey Moon phase. BUT all I can say is that I'm in LOVE

I took her to work today and she just keeps getting better. What a [email protected]*kin' package. Can't see me ever selling at this rate especially as it has sooooo much potential tuning wise

Out of all my cars this has impressed my pals the most, and who can blame them ; )
