Right, where do I start? At the beginning I guess. As many of you know I finally hung up my uniform last year and I started a new job with a healthcare company down south. We did have a plan of working in the UK for a while before I got a job as a consultant, we would then move overseas and I would work from Croatia. That didn’t really work out so it looked like I’ll be staying in the UK for a few more years yet. I had a decent lump sum squirrelled away to buy a house overseas but now it was sitting in the bank doing the square root of nothing so I started pondering a 911.
However, and as much as I like 911s, I couldn’t bring myself to do it because I simply didn’t want to lose any more money in depreciation and so my thinking was to buy an expensive toy, play with it for a year and sell it on with as little loss as possible. Less running costs obvs. That really narrowed it down to more exotic stuff like Atoms, Caterhams, classic cars and so on. I can’t really remember why I...
So just paid a deposit on this beauty, which I'll be collecting on Saturday (fingers crossed)...
I'm sure for many, it doesn't come at all as a surprise - if anything more of a surprise that it took so long!
Essentially I am still very happy with my Macan but a mixture of wanting a change, needing a bit more space and coming across the best specced Cayenne I'd seen in 6-9months of loosely looking, meant that I grabbed the opportunity with both hands and paid my deposit this afternoon after the car first appearing on the OPC website on Saturday.
I've enquired on about 4 Cayennes in the last 9 months. Each of them being nice, but hard to get too excited about. So out with @Harry's "where there's doubt, there's no doubt" line, each of them sucessively got kicked into touch. But there was something in...
Back in February I decided to give the Carplan No1 a try.
CarPlan was not very high in my list of proven detailing product manufacturers - if I'm honest I used to scoff at most Carplan stuff, preferring to buy much more expensive products, but after hearing a few good reports I reckoned it was worth a try - nothing to lose, etc.
This was in preparation for our twice a year trip to the Balkans to visit our relations in several countries.
Of course Covid 19 arrived and we haven't done any significant journeys this year.
This was a major clean-up after the Winter, so I washed and polished the car as usual with a whole load of Autoglym products - Polar Blast - Shampoo and Conditioner - Super Resin Polish - Extra Gloss Protection - followed by a once-over with BMW Nano Wax.
Normally that would have been the job finished - but now it was the turn of the Carplan No 1
It's simplicity itself to apply - it's water-thin and needs no effort at all - just spread it on with a microfibre...
