Was quite chuffed this morning to see the car I look after on the front page of a national publication in WH smiths.
Th car in question is an Estoril blue E46 M3 Convertible, quite a rare colour for this model and much sort after, this vehicle has been maintained by myself for the last year or so twice monthly.
The owner asked me if I would give the car some special attention ready for a photoshoot he'd been asked to attend for Junes publication featuring convertibles.
Was promised a mention in the magazine but didn't hold my breath, unfortunately it didn't happen, but still nice to see it taking pride of place.
