    Red is the best colour by a Country mile when at its best on most cars IMHO. Just needs a little more TLC than other colours to prevent it from blooming.

    Says the man with a Cosmos Black Z3 :whistle:


    hence why Ferrari use it

    Black is a really good colour... until you go back to the car 30 mins after polishing it to find a nice layer of dust has settled on it.. doh!!!

    I got bitten just before we went to Florida last September, the day after we got there my arm was blown up and very red and painful. Got some gel from pharmecy took almost a week to go down.

    Always carry some lavender oil with you, if you get bitten by a bug, put some on the bite. It will help ease the pain and help the bite to heal. Lavender oil is an natural antiseptic.

    Just picked my GoPro up for the first time since last Sunday and realised I'd set it recording shortly after our little group set off from Red Gate near Nuneaton and then forgot about it. I have 2h 40min of video :whistle:

    The first 30 mins is our journey up through Leicestershire, briefly on the A42 and then over to Shedshed (where at one point there was a Z4 Coupe going the other way :eek: - I've no idea if it turned around and headed in the right direction ). There is our arrival just as the gates opened, parking up and lots of other cars streaming in. Quite a few cars being de-bugged and lots of people wandering around and looking.

    Its all too huge to upload anywhere anytime soon, but does anyone want lots of interesting video to watch instead of watching Corrie and Easternders? :D

    Probably me going the other way in the Z3 Coupe, I flattened my battery pitching the tent using the headlights! Got started with the very kind loan of some jump leads and an Alpha Romeo (thankyou!), then had to go for a brisk jaunt to charge it up enough to start later on. I made it back eventually!

    That's a great relief. We were worried that some poor misguided soul was inadvertently heading in the wrong direction. Hope you enjoyed the rest of the day after getting sorted.
