Dirty 1M Pics - Post Here

So we have all seen a thousand pictures of pristine 1M's but it's time to show the reality of driving. I took a couple friends up to the Dragon's Tail earlier today and since the weather was awful I figured it was a good time to start this thread. At times during the drive the rain was coming down so fiercely the wipers on full speed couldn't keep up. Needless to say it was a fun time sliding the car around (and making one of my friends puke - outside the car) and since it's the middle of the week we hardly saw any cars. I tried my best to get the car very dirty but this is the best I could do. I know some of you guys must have better pics of your car after a track event that will put mine to shame but here's my contribution, for now.

I may go find a Georgia clay road tomorrow to up the grunge level.

That's still decent, Dan.

Mine became so dirty that pictures would be NSFW. VO hides well dust, dirt and raindrops. However there are limits, a bit like women who have put up so much make-up that you could easily write "dirty" with your finger on their cheeks. My alloys have now the poor man's gunmetal look too: no painting or coating but they simply underwent the free of charge "brake dusting process".

Here's a close-up of the rear bumper in its rough urban jungle habitat.
