  1. Can you switch the halo's (drls) off permanently? Didn't think you could.
  2. Another big fast estate :)

    850 R Estate in here: https://www.goodwood.com/grrc/road/news/2018/4/from-cl500-to-850r--flagship-hh-sale-bargains/
  3. Autoglym Polar Blast snow foam - recommendation

    Personally I don't use snowfoam but that looks a good product.
  4. CarPro HydrO2 (Lite)

    ^^ looks great. I do much prefer the M Sport front bumper/valance. Mine is an SE and it just doesn't look at nice iMO.
  5. Another big fast estate :)

    A must for an Ultimate Q Car. Not many kicking around on Autotrader at all - just one which looks OK - 53k miles, £8k
  6. CarPro HydrO2 (Lite)

    Any pictures of the finished result? I've not tried a Farcela Clay Mitt but heard good things - I'll probably try one on the F11 replacement later this year. PM sent ref Aquapel
  7. Wheel cleaner

    Pretty much as above I'd say. I use Autobrite Very Cherry Wheel Cleaner which works for me but my wheels aren't generally too bad as they are protected and coated so the build up comes off easily. If you've got really stubborn brake dust it would be worth investing in some "Dragon's Breath" (https://www.valetpro.eu/Wheel-Cleaners/61-/Dragons-Breath) or any form of fallout remover.
  8. ^^^^ do like that style of alloy. very nice
  9. Pointless BMW accessory of the week

    I agree. I wouldn't want to leave my road bike on the roof whilst I was in the services unattended. This would make sense in this situation but as @Seesure comments not really very good for a MTB.
  10. Towbar for F11

    Long shot but looking for a towbar to suit F11 to tide me over the summer.
  11. CarPro HydrO2 (Lite)

    Guess it depends what you are looking for but preparation is the key with any product. I tend to top it up after every wash so haven't really had any issues but I can see what you mean. Problem is the size of the cupboard because if it's big you'll spend a fortune on filling it up with stuff you then never use. My advice - get used to a system (range of products) and stick to it !!
  12. CarPro HydrO2 (Lite)

    Gyeon Wetcoat is only £10 so relatively cheap. GTechniq C2v3 will give you longevity - 6 months I tend to find. I use Gyeon in the winter and GTechniq in summer. RainX doesn't last that long either. I use Aquapel - supply in the UK is tricky, I've imported from US before. One application will easily last 6 months.
  13. Detailer Recommendations

    http://www.beautechnique.co.uk/ I've used Scott before - great guy. Based on Loughborough but does travel.
  14. CarPro HydrO2 (Lite)

    I don't use Hydro2 but Gyeon do a similar product - Wetcoat. Actually did my car at the weekend - rinse with pressure washer, wash with GTechniq G Wash, rinse again, loosely dry off and then apply Wetcoat with a mitt (gives better coverage), rinse with PW to activate then dry. I always dry afterwards because otherwise you end up with water spots.
  15. Conversely, I'm the other way - I don't really use CC at all these days. Traffic is generally too heavy and you are constantly having to adjust. I had ACC on my Superb and it was very good, I would spec again if available. Limiter on the other hand is great in roadworks as you say.
