    4 days of severe anxiety about getting a ticket to go, then that will mark 2 weeks... Plzplzplzplz... :(

    If I don't get ticketed I'm definitely going to buy something stupid to celebrate... Like a personalised plate... :p

    D20 TRP would look good on the E30... (TRP being my initials) - Alternatively I always wanted E12 MKS for my old Corolla.

    I'm sure you can still get tickets from after 2 weeks, they still count. Or has that been changed?

    Assuming the addresses on all his docs are current and he hasn’t changed them recently, and they don’t charge with dangerous driving or anything like that then the NIP would be invalid. It’s very rare for that to happen nowadays though.

    Everything is up to date and hasnt ever changed.


    The law states it has to be delivered within 14 days.

    Had rude gestures thrown in my direction after a car behind me then went a different way at a junction. He had been occasionally on my tail and quite close, but I was more than doing the speed limit and often well ahead of him except when I was also held up by a car in front (I did wonder if it was because I was just a fraction too fast for him to overtake, no idea, it was on cruise control so I wasn't accelerating wildly). I can only think it was car jealousy (AMG vs a very old Honda)? I can't see what else I did wrong. Some crazies out there.

    I had pretty much the same yesterday from a truck driver - I was on a roundabout, correctly going straight on in the left lane and he was annoyed that I was basically using the roundabout when he wanted to come out!

    Tried a bit of making pink red and it came out really well.

    It's still a bit wet here but you can see how pink it is.

    And now it's red.. I'm super impressed.

    You'll probably find it will fade again a little bit overnight, then cut it again, polish again, then seal it with some UV resistant wax. :)

    That's the plan. I wasn't expecting it to come back but I was pleasantly surprised.

    My battery died so I stuck it back in the garage. Going to give it a proper wash tomorrow and then go full cleaning mode.
