    Time to Change the Company Car

    Start in the Spring with a really deep clean & full detail including clay, polish then sealant - could probably take 6 hours!. That lasts me over the Summer where I will probably only do it every 3-4 weeks (quick wash and top up with sealant so 30-45mins). Once the weather starts getting bad (rain) I'll probably do it every other week. By topping it up every other wash keeps it going.

    G30 530e Msport Arrived Today

    Do it yourself - it really doesn't take that long but preparation is the key.

    G30 530e Msport Arrived Today

    Nice, what colour is that? I saw a 530e on Saturday and it almost looked purple, really nice colour imo.
  5. Had exactly the same problem with mine - it ended up going back into BMW and the whole roller section was replaced.

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    Glad you got it back and all is OK now. Regarding the automotive OCD, I'm the same - we had to drop the OH's car back into the dealer yesterday due to an issue with the service lights and brakes. It made a refreshing change when they actually asked whether we wanted a service wash after the work was completed - I politely declined advising them of the GTechniq that was applied to the vehicle, and they understood perfectly.
  7. Not sure either. I know we've dropped them from our company car lists.

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    That's probably down to parts supply & logistics after VWG changed their providers and are suffering as a result.
  9. Unless you spend mega bucks the spec is poor.

    Glad you got it back - they tend to park them up for a few days and watch them in case they have trackers. I always leave my keys out on the side - I don't particularly want thieves breaking in my house, ransacking things for the keys or worse still threatening me, my wife or kids.

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    Shocking - I always plaster the job sheet with "Please do not wash". I used to have a sign hanger for the rear view mirror but lost it when I changed cars - that always does the trick.

    Fuel Tank Questions...

    I put fuel in, the engine uses it, I fill it back up. About all I'm bothered about. @535i Andrew I put 67 litres in the other day!

    Sun Protection Glass - Watermarks

    Yeah and follow up with their Fast Glass. Both great products IMO
  14. Booked it back in with the dealer (via lease company) as the parcel cover is starting to creak again. It was done under warranty before but I suspect nothing was actually done!
  15. Yeah had to do the volume right up on the L1 but just can't fathom it out on this XA2. Try again tomorrow.
  16. I'm trying it all over again! Worked just fine on the Sony Xperia L1. Changed to Xperia XA2 - doesn't work. Nothing, no sound, nothing. Running Androind 8 Oreo Only want to listen to podcasts.

    Detailing advice - claybar?

    I'd go one step further @535i Andrew considering the OP is new to claying, and purchase a Farecla G3 Clay Mitt from Halfords. It'll be slightly easier to get to grips with than a traditional clay bar setup and good for the first timer IMO. But i guess it's personal preference at the end of the day.

    Bonnet bra fella! No more stone chips......................
  20. That's the way, but I'm already entitled to a reasonably well specified 5 Series / A6 et al.
  21. I'm keen on an electric car - had a test drive in a Tesla Model 3 a couple of weeks back, but I'd be opting out of a full maintained and fuelled company car scheme and taking the allowance. As much as I can see the benefits, I just can't get the numbers to stack up in my favour!

    Time to Change the Company Car

    It's a great product. For many a year, I jumped on every bandwagon there was going with detailing. I tried hundreds of products but got to the point where I generally didn't have the time and wanted a product I could just wipe on, then walk away. I started with Optimum OptiSeal but quickly moved to GTechniq when they were launched. It really is that simple.

    GTechniq C2v3 as it's known. Yes use it all the time along with the majority of their products. Great stuff - you'll get at least 6-9 months durability off it without any form of prep. Clean the car, apply and it bonds.
