I drove back 250 miles from the northwest last night. It snowed all the way from the M6 at Preston to Stafford. Pretty harsh conditions.

We've had sun all day, but cold and slippery roads. I love the way the M5 tracks, just keep the throttle pinned and steer even if it's nearly sideways. Never ceases to amaze me how forgiving these things are...

After the weather warmed up, I treated the M5 to a wash with my favourite gritty sponge...

Why are your siderepeaters mounted the wrong way? :confused:
They were fitted the wrong way round by a bodyshop who painted the front wings to repair stone chips.

I simply couldn't be bothered to swap them over.

That was 30,000 stone-chipping miles ago (10 months) and they're due another painting. I'll fit them the right way when the wings are resprayed again.
