  1. Picked mine up with Prets, Contis, No DCC, and found the ride to be a bit harsh. Checked the tyre pressures and they were at 40 psi all round. Reduced to 36 psi all round and it made a world of difference. Its still firm, but doesnt crash like it did before
  2. Yep, but the results are not just in the shine, cleaning wise dirt leaves the car with prewash and jetwash. Water sheets off the car. I’m gonna do my wife’s car myself when I get chance, but it’s probably 3 days work cleansing, polishing and applying. Also Mohs + is only available to pro detailers, regular Mohs kit is about £100.

  3. £750 for new car detail with light machine polish, coated with Gyeon Mohs +. https://gyeonquartz.com/product/mohsplus/
  4. Anyone done any wear analysis on their tyres, at different pressures? I usually find manufacturers recommendations are over pressure, and result in wearing the centre of the tyre more quickly. I’m running Prets with Contis, nearing 2k miles, and the car was delivered with 40psi on the left, 41psi on the right! Car doesn’t have DCC, reducing pressures to 36psi has made the ride a lot better Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for posting an actual price, plan for me is a long term keeper, so £1000 for 90k miles is fine, premium for pre WLTP cars was too high compared to new. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was concerned about this, but got advice on here that a decoke every 30k miles would solve the problem, estimated cost £200. Bearing in mind the inflated prices of pre WLTP cars, I went with a new one, very happy with it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. No ambient lighting in the back, or the rear door sills Leather seat has internal side bolster edge made from cloth, not leather. Couldn’t get all the options I wanted unless I paid the government an extra £350 a year in tax Got my 21yr old son insured on it, and he keeps pinching it! WLTP change will mean longer term ownership will require de-coking On a positive note, the rest of it is amazing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Even if the cars are in the showroom, you can still get them to price match a Carwow or other price. I got 14.6% of my Golf R RRP - £39.5k Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Headlight polishing on a old E class, followed by rusty brake hubs on an 330d convertible, found a local detailer who painted the hubs. Looked at his wash process and found a link in his site to detailingworld.co.uk. In the old days we had Tcut and Colour magic wax... This is one area where things have really improved Prewash Two bucket wash Lambs wool Drying towels Air drying Ceramic coatings... Echo the thoughts on “me time” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello

    Welcome to the forum, I was a long time lurker here coming from an E93 M3, before ordering a new WLTP car. Wanted to keep it under £40k list so went with the following options: Leather Pretorias Sunroof Wanted DCC but wanted the other stuff more! Having driven it, it is spirited but not crashy over bumps, had a BMW with run flats before the M3 and that was awful. As a passenger I would say it would be better with DCC, but I can live with it. Sunroof is good to hear exhaust, and also lightens the cabin when the blind is back. I would recommend this. Pretorias - I would recommend these as well, although there is some concern that the OEM wheels are fragile and can buckle. The pretoria replicas from CM wheels are rumoured to be stronger albeit a bit heavier. Standard sound system in 7.5 is great, hear dynaudio is a good upgrade but I’m ok with standard, there is a retrofit kit that gets you near Dynaudio quality. Discover Pro - it’s possible to upgrade to touch screen new system I think, so you might consider this as optional depending on your point of view 7.5 - I would go this route if you can stretch to it, the dash, tech, safer placement of front radar for ACC is better. Just my thoughts, good luck with the search! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
