  1. Never been a fan of white cars in general, but yours looks 👍 ace. Those bonnet blade thingies are getting more popular, too. Saw one on a caddy the other day and it sets the front off well.
  2. Completed the Q800 rear cam install, all wires tucked away behind trim. Then installed a wifi hotspot for the camera’s cloud features and the standard nav’s traffic/news updates.
  3. The old disks look like they’ve been parked in a field for a while to be pitted like that. 😮
  4. Showery day, but managed to get the front half of the Thinkware Q800 Pro hardwired in, connected to phone and cloud. I'll try for the rear cam tomorrow if the weather allows for the boot trunking to be removed.

  6. I’ve recently noticed a very minor whine from what I perceived to be the haldex on mine, so I had it cleaned at an Indy yesterday! It just so happens the fella that did the job has a Mk7 R (a very clean car too), he told me the gauze was a mess (at 25k miles). He said the oil is clear when it’s fresh, but if left to sit crystals appear! Those crystals are apparently what block the gauze and shaking doesn’t mix them back into the oil. He recommends fresh oil every 12 months, no matter what mileage is done - that’s okay for him working in a garage all day, but would be a pain for anyone else. I took it for a spin earlier and the noise has gone, so I’m thinking I caught it before any permanent damage was done. The mk5 Haldex system seems very sensitive.
  7. Finally... got around to putting the summer rubber back on. It’ll be nice to circumnavigate roundabouts without hearing the all-seasons screeching their way into oblivion at low speeds.
  8. I bought the O/H’s 66 plate Polo from them in 2017! I got a great deal, and found them to be very friendly people. I remember they had a dark blue R Estate there at the time which took my eye, but it had already been sold. It was scoping that car out that made my mind up to find one 14 months later. I wish Watford’s dealers were more like them.
  9. my 2 freebies were a nightmare! They didn’t change the pollen filter and charged £30 for the oil “upgrade” - which was returned after being advised here that Castrol Edge is the recommended oil. They haven’t even told me the Haldex oil was due to be changed 5,000 miles ago. I’ll take it to an Indy from now on.
  10. Pilot Sport 4 Vs Premium Contact 6 Vs F1 Asymmetric 5 for the 18” brigade …which I imagine is quite a few. 👋
  11. I’ll admit to going back a page to check it. 🖐 😫
  12. Those reflection shots are to die for! The panels looks like they’re melting. Congratulations, Becs! It’s a beautiful example not many will be able to reproduce. 🎉🍾👌
  13. Thanks, Greg! not a chance I’d trust that many people with my car. The ceramic coating means the dirt doesn’t really stick and I can literally run around the car with the wash mit and bucket after a good blast with the Karcher. 👌
  14. The 1 hour wash went well. before after
