Have it a long overdue wash.                  

Well I couldn't wait to clean the car for pics in the end.. I'm absolutely chuffed with how they look. Was worried about the grey on grey to begin with but I am very happy.    

Had the R lowered and my wheels fitted.

Apologies for the random question but can anyone recommend any good bird sh*t remover?

 

I’m sure @Booth11 has got some recommendations.


Very topical since a feathered fiend splattered my roof and windscreen this morning as I was driving down the motorway.  
 

I use a Quick Detailer for bird strikes as always have some to hand at home or in the boot of my car if mobile.  I soak a soft microfibre with QD and then lay the wet cloth over the bird crap until it lifts away without any need to scrub at it.  I use Chemical Guys Spoed Wipe or Bouncers but any QD will do.  Alternatively just soaking a cloth or paper towel water and then doing the same works.

Looks great Neil! 😎  And brings back memories. Lol.  I hope your beloved dog is doing ok. 

Haha. Thanks Rebecca.  Still catches my eye and admiring glances.
Ziva the Schnoodle (Cross Schnauser/ Poodle) doing ok.  Not brill. But ok.  Nearly 12 weeks post op.  Will tolerate a 20 min walk, a 15.  Then Sod this😂

See Vet in 2/52 and likely some Hydrotherapy for her to follow.

(Nice drive to Hydrotheapy Clinic tho, so….)

Hey Paul.  Hello there.  Hope you are well and life is being kinder to you.  Great to hear from you, man. 
You’re not wrong.   My R is a real garage queen.  Just hitting. 6500 miles, turned 3yo  in March.   Every mile a treat. 🙏

I’m sending positive / healing energy & kind thoughts over to you  NZ.  They will take a bit longer to reach you than Rebecca’s as I’m further North. 😀

Stay strong, stay well mate, to keep going.

Had mine in to a local well known garage for DSG and Haldex servicing which hadn’t been done prior to me purchasing.(goodwill gesture). Luckily I was within my “60 day no quibble warranty” and I had also asked them to check coolant loss and knocking from passenger wheel. Turns out the thermostat housing and a hose were leaking and the brake pads/calliper were somehow loose? This car by the way had just been through the garages workshop a month ago😖. I reckon for their prices I would be a grand lighter out with the warranty. All fixed now though but highlights the shit service from AC. Doubt that’s been through a thorough pre-sale inspection.
