    Many years this time of year i have been swapping winter tyres -> summer tyres.
    Usually when we have first F1 race of the year most of the snow is gone.
    Today it was -26celsius when i drove to work. Beast from east or i dont know what this is. I want summer. Now :smiley:

    I found out that there was swirl marks in right door mirror.
    I corrected swirls with rotary polisher.
    Then it was time for Nanolex SI3D Ceramic coating.

    Hello again!

    Today is 12 of april and sun is shining here.
    In fact, weather forecast says it will be sunny for 10 days.. Amazing. Nights are cold, this morning it was -5celsius.

    Traditionally 1. of may is good day to take summer vehicles for insurance and drive.
    Vappu is celebrated annually on 1 May and marks the end of winter. It is also celebrated as International Labour Day and is one of the biggest festivals of the year in Finland alongside Midsummer's Day and Christmas.

    After winter roads are in horrible state..
    See this video, maybe you now know why i dont like cup suspension..

    Look fullscreen and 720p or 1080p for best quality.

    Last week we had nice weather and almost +15 celsius in daytime.
    This week is return for normal Finnish weather: (+5 celsius and raining).
    Because slow progress of summer, i thought maybe i take clio for insurance after i come back from Italy end of May.
    It depends how this will go. I really dont have any interest to get any flying studs or rocks for my new windscreen or almost mint paintwork. There is still many cars with winter (stud tyres) in my area.
    In fact, it is illegal to drive with stud tyres this time of year when snow has been gone, but people are lazy.
    And then we debate why our roads are so bad... :expressionless:


    So, nothing new here. :flushed:
