    Anyone else sick of this weather?

    Kind of annoying for Toyota to release the Supra in September really.

    Haven't had much time to drive the car especially with the weekends being cr*p too

    Not long before i put it away for winter. Gave the car a clean last weekend, lo and behold dirty again from all the wind and rain.

    It has been pretty crap since getting our cars for sure!
    I given up up holding out for any sunshine. It's filthy at the moment. :(
    Only managed 430 miles so for.

    Shelsley Walsh breakfast club this morning, still pissing down.

    Will be using it all year so will get underneath as soon as possible and coat
    as much as I can in ACF50. Then just stop worrying about it!! :) :umbrella:

    Yeah I get that. I've done about 450 miles in mine. Trying to only be out in the dry, but been caught out a few times. Really loving it so far and looking forward to have it run in and in the warm and dry next year.

    3000 miles here. Crap weather but I just blast it with the hose when I can. So far no real issues. Front end feels a bit more 'twitchy' than I expected but I'm told this is not uncommon in BMWs either so I guess it's just something to get used to. Thinking about moving to Spain for the better weather. We'll see.

    Did you use anything special when cleaning? remember reading something about cleaning products have to be pH neutral, only using pressurised fine water spray at present.

    Mine will be garaged at EOM until next April.

    Mines fully PPFd and ceramic coated so I just used a PH neutral snow foam and the same stuff works as a soap too then rinsed off and dried with an airblower and soft towel
