Do you find yourself looking at your car in the reflection of the windows ???? ......confessional thread :)

Of course I do. There's a new-ish building on Swan Street in Manchester just before Band on the Wall, it has a long glass frontage and is perfect for a few seconds of self-indulgent ogling :p

Absolutely a 'must do', :thumbs: , but with extreme caution, of course.:D

Back in the mid-80's, when my then pride and joy was a Rover SD1 Vitesse (don't mock, :tut: - a very underrated car in my opinion), I was heavily rear-ended by a chap in a brand new Capri 2.8. He was so busy confirming his level of coolness, :rolleyes: , he only realised I was there when he saw his reflection and my reflection in the same pane of glass, :mad:.


Resting peacefully in that big car park in the sky, :(

^^^^ I like that a lot :)
Me too.

I was too young to drive when the SD1 was live and kicking but it was one of my aspirational cars at the time (along with, ahem, the 2.8 Capri :D ).

I still like the looks of the SD1.....

Why of course I do :D

Also if you stop behind a shiney vehicle in traffic you sometimes get a lovely sight of the front of your own bella :D

YES!! It is always a pleasure to admire the car in shop window reflections! I also like the SD1, the neighbour across the road had three in a row when I was a young child, and I thought they always looked uber cool!! They still do!!!

I used to do that where I lived before.
The ground floor apartments had full height windows so I could see the car in them.
I am sure the people that lived there though I was some freaky peeping tom spying on them, but I still did it :)

Its obligatory isn't it?
There is a block of flats that have mirrored glass on the ground floor just before a set of lights near me and its funny looking back along the row, everyone does it even people in Nissan Micra's and vans:lol:

Yes, I drive past a big Mercedes dealership just outside Ascot where they have massive plate glass windows. The traffic is often slow there so I turn to look at the car's reflection. They probably think I am looking at the Mercs but I am in fact thinking how much better the Alfa looks than a load of fat old men's barges.
