    Nothing major, but I had a bit of a car cleaning day yesterday,..........getting the A6 all spanking for sale mainly (but gave the blue one a good wash aswell).

    The enginebay was filthy and dusty when I bought the car due to the previous owner's private lane that gets dusty in summer. During the week I removed all plastic engine covers, scrubbed them, soaked them, scrubbed them again and then used various products to bring them back to looking like new, stain-free and jet black.

    While the covers were off yesterday I spent a good 3 hours scrubbing up the bay itself. Many cloths and baby-wipes later it went from this...........

    via this..........

    The underside of the bonnet is absolutely like new with the grime removed......

    It makes the other engine look rather dirty now......

    I changed the number plates finally to the shiny new fresh ones and then washed both cars with Meguiars Gold shampoo......

    I'll carry on this week with it but there really isn't much to do to it now :)

    What's the 2.7t engine like Paul?

    Was thinking of getting an A6 and I've always wanted the 2.7 bi-turbo engine since it first came out in the late 90's. Have you had yours remapped? I can imagine it would be quite rapid with the boost slightly cranked up.

    Whereabouts in Horsham are you from? I'm sure I've seen your car in Crawley.

    If it wasn't an Avant, I'd bite your hand off!

    I'm a bit too young for an estate at 21, but I'm desperate to get an A6 2.7T, I've always wanted one and after the current fleet is sold I can get a nice one and mod the life out of it!

    Oi, there's nowt wrong with Crawley, I've lived here most of my life, and it was far preferable to South East London where I've lived! I guess you live in Colgate or thereabouts?
