If you won the Euromillions....

Would you still detail your own car?

I was thinking about this the other day. One of my key purchases would be a house with enough land to build a cracking garage set up. Then I was thinking 'why'? I would have enough dosh to pay some of our great supporters and legends in the industry to do a full correction and protection to my fleet.

I always thought the first thing I would do with a lottery win and my new cars is block book KDS or White Details, or System Clense for a month and just keep the cars rolling in

However, then I rolled back on that and decided - yes, I would. I enjoy detailing for what it is, I enjoy the process, the tools, the products. So i'd invest in the kit and the space and have somewhere to detail and otherwise 'play' with my vehicles.

Would probably invest in some training courses with the best as well to enhance my own enjoyment

Interested to hear the thoughts of fellow enthusiasts!

Yes, i'd still have to do the polishing after every wash given all the scantily clad models i'd have doing the washing (with ***s - No mitts!).

Move somewhere hot and exotic where I wouldn't need a car and travel by boat/yacht to wherever I needed.

Oh, and buy a Russian bride!!

I never get past the increasingly weird and wonderful ways I’d hand my notice in at work. I’d give examples but we are a family friendly forum.

Im probably in the 1% of people that, if they won the Euro's, wouldnt move house. Id extend the garage and add another single garage on the side which would be a wash bay. Change the drive and just get mad with the house and car collection

But, yes, I would still detail my own cars!

Ha, that's me as well. Boxes of files here that I'd jumble into a right mess before handing back. 😂
