    Two great conversations this week. On Sunday I took her for her fortnightly valet. Tried a different place this week, the boss came out and spent twenty minutes telling me how lovely my car was and 10 minutes trying to get me to accept 5k for her.

    Then I took her for her MOT today, advisories x3 , one my fault (disconnected airflow meter as I'm waiting for replacement) other advisories were bush is showing minor wear and two "very very minor" oil leak on NSR and OSR back plates, not contaminating brakes. The chap behind the counter said that whilst testing it all the mechanics took a look at the car, especially underneath because they were amazed at the condition of the car and he said it's like a new car and he can tell it's had money spent and been very well cared for. He also tried to buy it!

    Very proud owner here, shame I am going to take it to a pay and play on Sunday. Lol. Guess I will have to have it properly cleaned underneath and wax oiled afterwards because I intend on covering her in mud

    Its not the underside you need be concerned about its inside the chassis rails as you simply cannot get all the water/mud out.

    That's true but she hasn't been off road before and given the general condition I'm certain it's not an issue at moment, but as you say, following my play on Sunday I will need to make sure it's thoroughly cleansed afterwards

    For the amount you paid for it , I would expect a vehicle in exceptional condition...........:D:D

    Now it is just a matter of keeping it that way............:)

    That the one in sibbertoft? That was my first ever off roading trip in the D2, took me half an hour pressure washing the chassis rails till they finally drained clean :)
