  1. Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer normally on offer from Euro Car Parts for about £8. Lasts about 6 weeks but very easy to use and the water beading is immense Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

  3. Ever been asked the question has the vehicle been altered from the manufacturer specification ?? Sent from my XT1032 using Tapatalk
  4. Me too. Back in those days you could have issues if it was imported from outside the EU e.g. Cyprus as it was difficult to get a certificate of conformity. However on a pre owned vehicle shouldn't make any difference Sent from my XT1032 using Tapatalk
  5. You will also need to inform your insurance company that the car is no longer standard spec. Some companies may increase your premium Sent from my XT1032 using Tapatalk
  6. Which is true if you had the £40k originally. If you had bought the car and say for example its worth £20k after 3 years. Its still cost you £20k to own Its just another way of financing a car and may not suit everyone Sent from my XT1032 using Tapatalk
  7. Its on your Michelin Primacy thread [emoji1] Hopefully I've copied correctly http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/index.php?/topic/125982-Michelin-Primacy-HP-ZP-tyres Sent from my XT1032 using Tapatalk

  9. Thanks for that always good to get real world opinions Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  10. Cleaning the car this week I noticed some bubbling in the lacquer on one of the wheels. The question is do I go for a smart repair or a full refurbishment. The smart repair will be more convenient but I'm unsure how long it may last. A full refurb will mean being without the car as I don't have a spare wheel (runflats) Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  11. I don't think there are many "bad" detailer out there. Some seem to be better at certain things than others e.g. are you looking for a good drying aid or to add more shine or just an all-rounder. Currently using EZ Car Care qd seems a good all rounder to me good at lifting bird poo and adds a bit of shine Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  12. I would suggest Dr Leather wipes but you mentioned you are getting colour transfer from the wheel. Is it actually coated leather or alcantara Sent from my XT1032 using Tapatalk
  13. As for care I'm not certain all dealers have the kit so will sub it out. I know the local Merc dealership does. If you have any concerns personal recommendation is the way to go along with lots of before pictures. Ensure your wheels are clean before you get the tyres fitted to stop the dirt masking any damage & check thoroughly before driving away as it makes it easier to argue the fitting caused the damage
  14. Well to be more accurate the valeter at the dealership did. I'm afraid I don't know what tyre dressing they used. I do know that they used a vile deodoriser. Car stunk of strawberry milkshake and I had to drive home with the windows open ..... But that's another story [emoji1]
  15. Some pics as requested. I cant' really comment on how effective the rim protector is as it's not something I've ever considered when buying tyres so have no experience to draw upon I'm afraid. As can be seen it does have the star
