How small a world is that...I still play golf with the Qualitair (and other controlled air/fidge) lads in the NRGS
Accoustic foam may well go down well here for the guys that want to 'deaden' their cars...my old 900GLs was covered in the stuff (thank you I.S/IMI ;)) and was the quietest SAAB Ive ever owed :)
Anyway, back on topic...photos of my filthy car will follow tomorrow

It's a small world. Enjoy your golf, get your car as mucky as can be, and we look forward to the pics.

Valet Pro Ph Neutral in a garden atomiser, spray it over the car an let it dwell, then blast it all off with a pressure washer (as advised by Greg at Valet Pro...they don't use it as a snow foam, good job too as it fails miserably to fulfil that function) I know how and what to use Ben...I just don't like the thought of the car being that dirty lol

Are you ready...

This is my old 9-3, I owned it from '06. Sold it my mother in 2012 (wished I hadn't, was immaculate)
She wouldn't sell it back to me August last year, so I bought my black one.

Been to see ma and pa this afternoon...






Country lanes and living on a farm
