Long time since I posted anything in here. This was yesterday afternoon, the cloud formations and sunset caught my eye, just thought I'd share it with you.

hi willpower.
the car looks really good  :)
the wheels look like new , have you had them refurbed ?
with 100 k on the clock the car looks like new on the photos.

my car has done 87,000 now and the daily motorway commute is taking its toll with stone chips to the front bumper and bonnet.
rear windows tinted black,carbon fibre pillar trims,stainless steel scuff plates,led interior roof bulbs,led number plate bulbs and piano black handbrake lever handle + leather gaitor.blue alloy tax disc holder,badges painted metallic black,silver painted dash and console,carbon stubby aerial

Thank you Newbs.  Yes 100,000 miles but cared for and looked after.   The wheels are 6 years old, the last set (of 3 sets ) that I managed to get out of Mazda just after my warranty ran out. Cleaned and waxed weekly.  There have been a few stone chips on the bonnet, but I have repaired them as soon as seen.  Polished and shiny for the MOT.  I believe a clean polished car gives a good first impression and sets the mind of the examiner. Psychology at work  LOL .   Thanks again.   :)

I'm only halfway there but given you were on 109 in January I am most definitely catching up!

Strange how as time has gone on diesels are now the less long lasting option.
