For those of you that are finding this winter weather a bit of a pain at the moment be warned, the police are around and about.

Driving home last night through Stratford Upon Avon only to get pulled over by a police spot check area outside a hotel!!

They checked over the car and everything was fine but I got told off about how dirty my number plates were!! So with a slapped wrist I travelled home and cleaned them the same night and here's the pics today:

Just thought I would let you guys know that as the Policeman said 'Dirty number plates are not clever'!!

Parking up at work today I noticed I couldn't read my rear numberplate anymore! When I left home it was dirty-ish, but not that dirty! My car is almost as dirty as yours, or probably will be by the time I get home tonight!

I'm taking it to the jetwash this evening and will clean it properly at the weekend.

What does it say on the Golf under the offside rear cluster? Looks like a sticker...

Agree the Bora Oettinger kit looks sweet though, even dirty!

Golfturbo - That's one of my work mates Escort, it's a real beast.

the_equalz - Thanks mate, can't say that she is looking her best in these photos but she looks good cleaned up!!

MikeTDI - If only I had some 26" Giavanni rims!!

Cat1.4 - That Golf is one of my work mates cars, he is from Belgium and his family run a VW repair centre called Muylle Rosalere.

They're only saying it to try and catch you speeding [:p]

Absolutely. Cameras etc are not much use with dirty number plates [:D].

Think hit + run, uninsured driver, stolen car, etc

Don't be so quick to jump on the police at every turn, they do a good job (sometimes [:p])
