  1. Definitely worth sealing after all that prep šŸ‘šŸ™‚. Even the cheaper sealants works well these days IMHO. I'm amazed at how long Turtle Wax Hybrid Sealant Spray Wax lasts (i.e. beads) and resists chemicals as per the YouTube reviews.
  2. There are some lease deals being advertised at the moment with January 2022 delivery date. I know it won't suit everyone as you need to get a more or less base spec car to make it worthwhile. Even so a 2 year lease with Jan 2022 delivery isn't so bad at around Ā£400 a month IMHO. Car tax is all paid by the finance company too, If you're interested check out the last posts on last pages of the lease board thread otherwise just ignore !!
  3. I got 6 cans of this recently (click and then pay on collection option). I detail quite a few family cars btw so will soon use them up ! Tried one and it seems to work well ... quite a strong citrus fragrance which fades over the weeks (now two weeks and still smelling). Probably only best for those with stinky air con or cabin šŸ¤¢, but should keep for next spring / summer when air con will be back chilling ! https://www.eurocarparts.com/p/power-maxed-aircon-sanitiser-542772971
  4. https://www.vehiclesavers.com/car-leasing/volkswagen/golf-hatchback/2.0-tsi-320-r-4motion-5dr-dsg.html Different people have different ways of calculating "good" lease deals but I always use the "under 1% of list price per month" on a 3 x 24 or 3 x 36 lease (on 5000/8000 miles per annum) as a good enough deal for me. 1% of 40,000 is Ā£400 a month, so these are not too bad IMHO.
  5. Saying January 2022 delivery and not too bad a deal if you can live with base spec on a 2 year lease. 3 years is a bit cheaper and similar to Vehicle Savers. https://www.gateway2lease.com/cars/volkswagen/golf-5-door-hatch/8-2.0-tsi-320-7speed-r-dsg-4motion-VW023839.php
  6. Not sure if it's the same on the Golf 8 R but with my Cupra, changing the volume would affect only the main thing coming through the speakers at that time (give or take a few seconds). For example if I just was listening to music it would change the volume of the music. If I was listening to music and using the SatNav everytime the SatNAv started to give an announcement I could alter the volume of the SatNav announcement using the volume control and only the SatNav was affected, not the music. It also remembered the SatNAv volume setting the next time an announcement was made. Same with A
  7. Thanks for the info ..... I think that's what Mr "White Details" does too šŸ¤£ so you're in good company ... I'll have to give it a go next time šŸ‘

    Beading

    Yeah, and it also cascades down over the rear doors after heavy rain if you open a door !!! . My poor dad found this out after opening the rear door and getting out of the car ... the run off literally soaked him šŸ˜šŸ˜
  9. Looking luvly jubbly as usual šŸ™‚šŸ‘. Nice to have some sun too ! I don't often hear about Bilberry Wheel Cleaner these days, but I'm still getting through my 5l container slowly !! btw ...how do you keep your brake discs from looking rusty after a wash ?
  10. More choices now at CVL ... still look very similar to Gateway on Personal overall.
  11. One thing with tyres is they are quite subjective, depending on what you want out of them. Some want great dry handling, some want good wet performance, some want great feel and feedback and some want a good comfortable all rounder etc.... I find the videos on Tyre Reviews a good source of info as he goes through each tyre and gives his pros and cons individually for each tyre (plus he uses a Golf for quite a lot of the testing recently including the one below) šŸ‘ :- https://www.tyrereviews.com/Article/2021-Tyre-Reviews-UHP-Summer-Tyre-Test.htm the video
  12. My maths suggests the offers are quite similar for 15K miles per annum over 48 months (taking like for like years of lease) for a Personal Lease ? Probably slightly cheaper overall with Gateway, especially if you want metallic ? (cĀ£20 more a month with Gateway but cĀ£1100 less up front) for Personal :-
  13. Try the GTE manual ... same source. It works for me in certain PDF viewers. OK, I know its for the GTE but at least we can use if for general stuff like mirrors and its the best we can find out there so far for a full searchable pdf manual šŸ™‚.
  14. Hopefully temporary as only this last Summer on sunny, windy days (when renewable energy was abundant), you could occasionally charge your car for free at home with companies like Octopus Energy šŸ‘ https://octopus.energy/blog/ev-tariffs/
  15. Not too bad a lease deal .... metallic included .... but other than that base spec. https://www.gateway2lease.com/cars/audi/rs3-sportback/quattro-400ps-s-tronic-AU018603.php?id=673606487 I wonder how quick they will deliver šŸ˜
