Not sure when the inevitable hosepipe ban will start, so gave mine a wash. Always scrubs up nicely :)
That looks absolutely top! Nice job :D

I reached a mileage milestone yesterday on the A14 on my way to Cambridge. (My passenger took the photo).

The car is still running perfectly. I will treat it to annual oil changes from now on.
Lovely looking car. We have quite a few F11's owned by Paul's;-) I thought I was leading the mileage chart for these at

Managed to get more on the outside temperature reading than the mpg reading for the first time ever averaging 38mpg over 20k.

Was too hot to post yesterday so did it today instead. I dont think the dash will report 42.5°C too often again in the UK, but may be common in some parts of the world no doubt.

Congratulations, I had a look around this a couple of weeks ago when it was in with BMR, it looked like a really tidy example.

It was nice to see it with no privacy glass, a panoramic roof and lighter colour interior. Really lifts it when compared to black with sunroof.

Cheers.

Stripes, blue, silver wheels…everything an Alpina should have.

I don’t really get the touring thing but yours looks like a great example.
