    You may get some unwanted attention with a very dirty number plate.

    Put mine in to get a hand wash today, looked OK when the guy finished with it (did not bother to get it shammy dried). When I got out the car later (and it had dried) I found out they must have got Stevie Wonder to wash it (loads of bits missed).

    Moral of the story – do it yourself

    Did mine today. Had left it for 3 weeks cos I hate the cold, what a mess. Car is gleaming now but the alloys are covered in embedded brake dust, sods law I ran out of megs alloy cleaner after the first pull of the trigger.

    dtm your car looks very simular to my car (washed a week ago but has done nearly 1200 miles)but you want to see my truck its supposed to be red but three weeks of no wash off and running day and night you can imagine!

    might spoil them tommorrow and do a full fleet wash both cars and the truck!
    but then again the pub may be calling as it my day off!!!!!
