I was filling up my newly washed lazer blue 111R yesterday - to be honest it does look brilliant when it is clean ( so that's twice a year then) when a guy started a conversation - it went something like this
him "That's a great looking car you got there"
me "thank you very much"
him "is the performance as good as the looks?"
me "how good does it look ?"
him "it looks absolutely fantastic"
me "nah - the performance is better than that!"
