  1. Have you got any pictures? Sounds like you may need to do some polishing??
  2. Yes produced serval labels and very pleased with them. Not sure as yet how long they’ll last as not really done any detailing in this cold weather 🀣. But very impressed so far πŸ‘
  3. Just a question for all you new purchasers, Is anyone considering hanging onto their prets and fitting them to the mk 8 πŸ€”. Would be interested in seeing what they look like, presuming PCD and offset would allow it??
  4. Christmas detailing gifts 😁 perfect! I’ve been looking forward to a full wheel arch detail so these bits should help. Really sad but I’m so excited with my label printer as I’ll be able to label all my spray bottles 🀣🀣🀣.
  5. Looks like something created on Forza Motorsport!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  6. Merry Christmas to you all 🌲. And bring on 2021!!!!
  7. So..... This was the sight out of my front window this morning and just for a split second I thought my wife had taken me seriously regarding my Christmas wish list as the truck started reversing into our drive!! Then the driver obviously realised they had the wrong address and drove off ☹️☹️.
  8. I think it was your advice that directed me towards the ONR in the first place πŸ˜‚. But yes it seemed to make a big difference with the 'Born To Be Mild' I use, the wash mitt literally slipped off the car! I struggle to find it available much of the time though, I only have a very small bottle of it at the moment.
  9. Seems odd that we notice these things sometimes, less than 10k to go now on the fiesta before the big ONE!!
  10. Hi, not really 'R' related as this happened in my wife's fiesta. I was getting some new tyres fitted last week, and was sat in the car with the window slightly ajar in these Covid times while a couple of guys in masks busily fitted the new tyres when I happened to notice the odometer reading. Small things I know but it put a smile on my face and I even had to take a picture 🀣
  11. My current thoughts are, and have been for a while that I will keep the 'R' for quite some time as it's only just over a year old and paid for. Not sure it will ever become a classic to everyone, but It does everything I want so well when I do use it rather than my wife's diesel fiesta 🀣. My decision will come in the next 3-4 years time when the fiesta needs changing, what then??? It might seem strange at that point to pay a large chunk of cash out on another petrol/diesel car? But what will be available electric wise in another 3-4 years time? And if I do keep the 'R' indefinitely, what will be the cost implications? Some people I speak to think fuel may become cheaper or stay a relatively similar price due to supply and demand? But then as others have pointed out I'm sure the government will want to claw back some cash when a large percentage of the population have stopped paying road tax as they have gone electric? What about all the people who have older classic cars?? My neighbour has two mk1 GTI's, are they just going to become expensive garage artwork? So many questions..................☹️
  12. Managed to get some time to clean the R over the weekend for once! Came up lovely though, and some very satisfying beading the next day πŸ‘. Added some ONR to my wash bucket for the first time, WOW that sure is slippery stuff!!
  13. Hi Paul, Lovely looking car. I was torn between lapiz and Indium when I got mine last year as the dealership had two Lapiz and one Indium all side by side! But I went for Indium in the end πŸ˜‰. All the best for collection day . 1) Golf GTD mk7. Lovely car, but not quite as lovely as an 'R' 2) VW Performance pack rear spoiler lip (very subtle). 3) The grin it puts on your face when flooring it out of a corner 😁.
  14. You can request Autoglass fit a genuine VW screen, but they may ask your insurance company if that's Ok. That's what happened to me , and my insurance company said it was fine to fit the genuine VW screen. πŸ‘
  15. Hi there costanator. Lovely looking R, but loved the colour of Maggie πŸ‘πŸ‘
