Been too cold for me to even think about washing my car but found a new business has set up at my nearest filling station. 2 local guys now doing hand car wash and did a good job on a very dirty Elan for just £4 . Result ! :bananasex:

Yes on the angle, No on the other... Didn't you notice it before? was pissed when I bought it 4 years ago but it's solid as a rock and I can't shift it - even removed the clamp hoping it might come loose but hasn't budged. It's got a horrible plain tailpipe with a sharp edge and I bought a nice one with a rolled chrome end from ... er ... a nice lady at Brands (Katherine or Stef ?) a couple of years ago but so far I haven't been able to fit it. Good news is I can't see it when driving and it's sounding nice (getting empty?).

I, too, was probably pissed when I last saw it so, as I was at a jaunty angle, it probably looked absolutely normal :drunk:

I can thoroughly recommend the full stainless Piper or PNM systems if you want to pull the burdz :-D

..driving from Combe Martin to Tiverton via the B3358 / B 3223

OK, we were in Jen's 'puddle jumper' but it was a brilliant drive across Exmoor with no traffic.
