Gave my baby the full Meguairs treatment inside and out at the weekend and it's been sitting in the garage all clean and gleaming. Problem is, I need to go out but it's raining and the roads are wet and I don't want to get my baby dirty. My girlfriend says I am mad and it's only a car............ only a car !!!
Am I mad ?

Gordo :rolleyes:

If you're mad, I am too! I cringe when I have to drive my car in the rain. I know the back side will get filthy, if nothing else.

Mad as me.....it snowed last weekend..but the streets are still sloppy and then there's the sand...no...Benny can rest inside clean and comfortable in his heated garage until things get better. I have other cars for these conditions.


Peter...good thing he never had children...in Denver

mad is when you have just washed it and your driving along and out of nowhere a puddle appears - you sweat - take evasive action like its bambi standing in the road and nearly hit a tree :D

Yeah, annoying, but one thing with the MINI that soothes those thoughts away is the fact that the MINI is meant to be driven. Driven hard and driven well. If you look at it that way, some scratches, paint imperfections, water spots, etc. won't bug you so much. I think the MINI manual or unauthorized manual states, in general, the same idea.

yup, know that one (maybe not hitting a tree, but certainly swerving to avoid puddles!)

Not only are you wise to keep Mini out of such bad conditions, but you've just gotten some excellent exercise. I think you're doubly smart!! :D:D

Courtesy of www.dictionary.com:

'Mad' can be defined as:

1 - Angry; resentful.
2 - Suffering from a disorder of the mind; insane.
3 - Temporarily or apparently deranged by violent sensations, emotions, or ideas: mad with jealousy.
4 - Lacking restraint or reason; foolish: I was mad to have hired her in the first place.
5 - Feeling or showing strong liking or enthusiasm: mad about sports.
6 - Marked by extreme excitement, confusion, or agitation; frantic: a mad scramble for the bus.
7 - Boisterously gay; hilarious: had a mad time.
8 - Affected by rabies; rabid.

How many do you qualify for? ;)

Does moving your MINI around outside the house (during the winter) so it stays in the sun (keep it warm) count?
