    I'm off on holiday tomorrow, so spent yesterday prepping the car for the trip. Having noticed that the aircon was beginning to smell musty on startup recently, I popped down to Halfords for a Comma anti-bacterialogical aerosol "bomb".

    I decided it would be a good idea to remove all the bits n bobs before I set the thing off, and whilst emptying out the passenger pockets, I found what at first looked a hooked tool for removing centre caps from wheels. Closer inspection revealed it to be a fossilised banana!

    No wonder it was smelly in there!

    I give my car a quick hoover out every week. I use one of those hand held Dyson's its very good and is up there with a proper mains hoover. It means it only takes 2 mins instead of 20 mins every few weeks..

    PS. I have a 13 month old so know about pancake crumbs and the like..

    Excellent, especially since fitting an RS4 rear anti-roll bar!

    We stayed in Rothbury, and spent the time exploring Kielder, and the Border towns such as Hawick, Kelso, Berwick-on-Tweed etc. Shame it rained.

    Thing with that is... I like to eat in the car, ESPECIALLY on long trips, and while i dont have kids, i can just imagine the outcome should you tell them "daddies eating, your not"
