Spent four hours polishing and glazing my newly-washed car in time to shoot over to Heston Services on the M4, to meet MissT16. Unfortunately it started raining bucketloads on the way, it was like driving through a river in places on the M4. Grr, not a good start!

MissT16 and Mr PoPo (as a passenger, no wild purple Golf - but watch out for him at the next meet!) were already there. "Why are we doing this..." I asked - but the rain had stopped long enough not to get my camera wet.

Despite more rain and traffic we were 30 minutes early for meeting outside Harrods, about ten others were already lined up. It wasn't until 10:30 that we finally left, leaving behind the anxiety of being parked right next to a bus stop and being in people's way.

I was already having trouble keeping up with the leaders of the pack and by the end of Regent Street I was already lost, so decided to go my own merry way, remembering that the first stop was to be the London Eye. I didn't find anyone there, so decided to carry on with a personal assignment - to photograph the Lloyd's building, if I could find it! I didn't, and was feeling tired enough to want to go home.

By chance I caught up with Gti Fly on the way home, then decided to join the convoy again.

It wasn't until past midnight I took any more photos. The next thing I knew, we were in the car park under That Famous Old Ship in Greenwich. Here are the partners in crime responsible for this outing...

Much tyre-screeching and turbo-whooshing ensued. Childish but fun [:D] Note to self: get car with turbo.

Ibiza Angel's cute Golf in disguise, with brand-new rims just fitted earlier in the day, and check out Faisal's gorgeous deep-dish rims in the reflection - the jammy sod didn't get a drop of water on his ride (or did he hide around the corner and dry it off before making an appearance?)

Great little video mate, just trying to make out who was behind you there, might have been myself? I knew you have a V6 but I suspected a bit of jiggery-pokery had been done with the exhaust, it really does sound good. Maybe I can get my sound recordist mate Matt along to the next meet and have him mike up various cars. Some mad shots in that video, I'd have been paranoid about dropping the camera out the window!
