I think you’ll find Touareg drivers do actually own the road :lol:

We bought it from Audi drivers who’d got a cracking deal from BMW drivers back in the noughties.... :mrgreen:

To be fair, when i arrived home with the garden trailer, it was to take our recently deceased washing machine and some rubbish from the garage, 1 x load tops. Claire spotted an opportunity and 5 x additional loads of garden clippings (read first dig out hedgerows, chop down 6ft high bushes and shrubs...) ensued... :roll:

I was told last night, that she may have found a little bit more to go to tip... thats this weekend gone south too... :|

Like the Borg say on star trek, 'Resistance is futile', ill cave and be a good hubby, knock 7 bells out of the garden (it cant grow back if its 20 miles away :| ), do the only 2 x forms of gardening i can tolerate, 2 stroke and 4 stroke ;-) and then she'll leave me be to play in the garage :D

Got me thinking now - I was going to give my BBS 13’s all over silver...but maybe not now.

TBF, they’ll be in “most of the old paint removed and mixture of previous primers” for Curbs as it’s low on the priority list. :mrgreen:
