  1. Just started using EX-P on my Pure White R & so far seems to be pretty good. Used Poorboys White Diamond Polish /Glaze first, then 2 coats of EX-P, leaving each coat on 60mins before buffing off. Love how easy EX-P is to apply & take off but no idea how long it last yet - 4 weeks now and beading really well. Might try wax on top next time.
  2. Welcome to the forum. Never been to see any races abroad, but sounds like your a big fan. Must be great atmosphere. Always preferred racing to watching but I try and watch anything closer to home such as Tour de Yorkshire, Tour of Britain etc and hopefully will get to see the World Champs in Harrogate this year.
  3. Nice bikes, great roads to ride on in the Lakes. Done a few TTs over there myself and also the Hartside Hill Climb.
  4. Just changed to AXA from Churchills, who had virtually doubled in price. Its all online documentation to keep costs down, seems fine but no experience with dealing with them claims-wise.
  5. Here's a link to the UK Gov Planning Portal on car parking sizes, basically 2.4m x 4.8m https://www.planningni.gov.uk/index/policy/planning_statements_and_supplementary_planning_guidance/spg_other/parking/parking_standards_considerations.htm I work for an Architects & we usually work to 2.5m x 5.0m, but I have seem some parking that's squeezed to fit in an extra bay or two, usually due to something going wrong with setting out on site.
  6. Up in the Scottish Borders this weekend. Visited St Abbs which is a tiny fishing village with a small car park just outside the village itself. Low & behold, a Lapiz blue R which I parked beside. Came back to the car a couple of hours later and another white R just parked across from us.
  7. Thanks Rebecca, I'll try that. The scratch has just about polished out. but the chip is showing up white.
  8. Tried a search on the forum but could not find anything...........Does anyone know if there is a suitable silver touch up paint to match Pretorias in the darker silver. Just found a stone chip & scratch on one of my rear alloys.
  9. Last car was a Focus ST2 in Deep Impact Blue........great on smooth roads, really sharp handling, but extremely firm ride & hated rough, uneven roads. Great Recaro Bucket seats, cramped cabin compared to the Golf. Attracted swarms of teenages in Corsas.
  10. Great pictures ! Only 3no. Golf's for me : 2001 Mk4 1.6 in Red 2006 Mk5 GT 1.4 TSi 170PS Twincharged in Red 2018 Mk7.5 R in White
  11. Yep.........thats the one - is it your car ?
  12. Seen a White 7.5 R with Black rear quarter panels north of Newcastle at Cramlington a few days back, not sure if they were wrapped or painted by certainly looked a bit different anyway........anyone on here ?
  13. Looks like your crank thread is cross-threaded on the photo, but your pedal thread looks fine ? Did your pedal unscrew itself when you where riding ? Think its a new chainset / crankset unfortunately, but be careful screwing that pedal back in, in case there is any damage on the thread.
  14. Here's mine 7.2kg of carbon fiber.......equipped with Campagnolo / Deda / Vittoria / Look / Fizik
  15. Deer are bad news & can cause serious damage - a friend of mine hit one in Kielder Forest, Northumberland & wrote off his car. 2 months later, along the same road he hit something & was knocked out, only coming around when a passerby came to help. Apparently he had hit a Deer which had come straight through the windscreen & knocked him out. The deer managed to get back out the car and run off but left him covered in blood & fur. As you can imagine, his insurance company tried everything to get out of shelling out again, but he had a witness & deer fur as evidence.
