Thanks

Well… that was a close one!
Thanks to everyone who voted … not just for me but for everyone who takes part in this monthly competition and made this month such a nail-biting finish.

This now means I’ll have to keep my car in A1 condition, washed and polished as all times!

Well done on your win, and yes, you're now committed to the polish regime, at least till your SLK falls off the forum front page!

Hi @djtuffer
It was a very close thing all the way to the end. To be honest I wasn’t sure who was going to win until the last moment!!
Your car looks great set against that background. Go in for another month and I’m sure it’ll be a winner
Good luck
Mike.
