And there was me thinking another recent post I've seen is NSFW.

That is still one delicious car.

I've decided that red is my new favourite colour for cars, you seem to be able to get a really good, deep shine. Good effort, that man!

That is an absolutely lovely image Phil! A definite contender for a 'Citroenian' front cover, or the home page for the newly re-jigged BXClub site - assuming that happens one day! :D

My challenge car goes off to pastures new tomorrow, I shall miss it, but the stickers are staying on for now as the new owner likes it that way. I will be spending tomorrow morning polishing and sorting the rev counter before I wave it a tearful goodbye.

S'alright Mike, it's camouflaged. The gray and green effect will make it blend in perfectly when parked up near greenery somewhere, like zebra's, distorts the outline for predators so they can't see where it is.
Perfect for vandal or would-be thief deterrence :lol:

I thought my car was looking cleaner. I presumed Tim had borrowed my keys and paid a visit to a all night auto lavage!!;)

Hey, if it's all right for those supermodels when they appear on a front cover, then it's got to be fine for a scruffy GS! :wink:

Everyone knows that it's the best colour, although I may be slightly biased.

I washed off the French dirt yesterday, and it doesn't look too bad. Note the shiny black towbar! :)
