My 1M out of Hibernation, how about u guys?

Alright, I've been patient since just before Thanksgiving, when I put her away for the winter. Couldn't take it anymore and today's weather looked great here in Virginia!!!

So, when's everyone awakening their little beast?

Mid-May; I'm off on an overseas trip in 2 weeks, and it's not yet warm enough here in the mountains for summer tires. I'll save 6 more weeks of insurance costs, which will go towards replacing my evaporator, which I'm pretty sure needs to be done

Hit me up sometime! Let's do a ride to Skyline? I also have a friend with a 1M in MD that could join. Would be cool to get a few pics with 3 1M's 😁

I am planning on doing a trip next month with some friends... should be a ton of fun. My 1M just got some love... i massaged the leather with some leather protector, gave it a nice wash, also vacuumed it thoroughly

What leather protection/conditioner do you use?

Does it leave everything shiny or matte?

Thx!

I think its Mothers brand... and yeah, leaves it shinny. Not really a fan of that but I am not doing it for looks as much as extending the life of the leather.
