This is my special edition Cube. I've owned it for nearly 5 years. It was the first Rider edition to be legally registered in the UK. I've kept the mods to a minimum but it really stands out, especially with the factory extra bodykit.

Former car - no longer own this car41 updates 96 followers 9 mods2013-03-04 11:07:24The Cube has gone :(
Yesterday I sold it after over 5 years of ownership. I'm going to miss it a lot but it just wasn't any good for the kind of driving I'm doing now, things change a lot over 5 years. It's a shame I couldn't keep him and get something more suitable for the big motorway distances I'm finding myself doing these days but needs must.
I know it's gone to a real good home though and I'm hopeful that one day I'll be able to buy it back :)

Gave the Cube a clean and headed down to the Sweetshop Automotive meet yesterday in Bristol. First clean since last year and I can't believe how much of a mess the paintwork and wheels are in (close up at least). There are so many tar spots on the white paint, and quite a few chips. The wheels are quite marked too, especially after the incident with the broken wheel nut. May change the colour of the wheels if I get them refurbed.
Other than that I've done the usual thing of clean it and fall in love with it again haha. I may still get a cheap diesel for the motorway runs and keep this but I'm still open to offers.
Here's a photo I took from the meet. Notice I put some black THRLL stickers on the wing mirrors, which turned out quite good, and not as much a pain to fit around the curves of the mirror as I'd thought.

Former car - no longer own this car41 updates 96 followers 9 mods2013-01-05 22:36:42Bought myself a new bike rack today. Not really a mod but desperately needed! It's the THULE ProRide 591. Can't wait to get it on there tomorrow.
Former car - no longer own this car41 updates 96 followers 9 mods2012-11-29 13:50:05I got caught in a traffic jam on the weekend on the M4 due to an accident because resulting in a load of diesel on the road. Came out to my car the next day to find it covered in oily diesel. Any recommendations for cleaning products?

Former car - no longer own this car41 updates 96 followers 9 mods2012-07-31 11:47:23Gave the Cube a good wash over the weekend.
Then I tried out the new THRLL stickers I've had made up - thanks http://www.ubersticky.co.uk/
Which I'm quite happy about, definitely works better than the old logo.
I'll have a batch to give out soon!
Former car - no longer own this car41 updates 96 followers 9 mods2012-05-15 18:39:47So now that I have the cube back on the road the aux belts have started tweeting like little birds. Just ordered some new belts from http://motaparts.com good job I wrote the part numbers down from last time I changed them (08/11/2008). Total price £14.35 (including delivery).
I also had a mot advisory about a rusty front cross-member so had a chance to check it out on the weekend. It's really bad :( - BUT only on one side so it's still solid right now but I'm pricing a new one up now which looks like it might be around the £135 mark.
I'm hoping it shouldn't be too difficult to replace either, it looks like just a few bolts (not welded on).
Former car - no longer own this car41 updates 96 followers 9 mods2012-05-14 20:04:41Had a great time at Japfest over the weekend. I spent a good 4 hours cleaning the car on the Friday before and I'm really happy with how well it came up. I always forget how stunning the pearl white paint is when it's all cleaned up.
Here are some photos on my house and at Japfest.
and one with my THRLL sticker :D
