    Yep I've heard of the rainwater trick, we're surrounded by trees and the water in the butts looks far from clean - think I'm going to need to explore some for of filter system because this has got to be the best option going forward and its free

    Did I imagine it or did you share your H&K settings in a post at some point - I can’t seem to get it right, perhaps I’m tone deaf lol Can you share again if you did? I guess it is a personal task thing but if I start by mirroring your’s then at least I’ll understand what you think ‘good’ sounds like.

    Anybody in hard water areas experimented with water softeners to remove the minerals and allow the car to dry by itself without white deposits?

    @Monkeyfinger @Andrew530dmsport Thanks both. The approach of not looking at the stone chips whilst washing is not going to be easy but alas necessary. The suggestion of the 3M or Xpel Paint Protection film is something I'm going to look into not sure of cost etc and I'll want the chip or chips sorting first but...... I suspect it isn't just the vehicles in front throwing up grit and the like, single carriageway road with f'in big dirty lorries heading in the opposite direction chuck out a fair amount of road crap too. As for the active cruise - it really does show quite how poor UK driving standards are, not only do you get the idiots who think nothing of pulling into the gap often after they have switched from the outside lane to inside and completed the undertake, but also those sitting in the outside lane doing 60mph who don't move over because your not on their tail flashing the lights......... Hay ho if you hear of anything relating to the Paint Protection film let me know. Thanks again both...

    530e - fully charged range monitor thread

    By way of a contrast I've spent £450 on fuel and done 2500 miles at a shade just under 33 miles to the gallon. All of the miles have been done using petrol - no matter how hard I try I can't get mine to run on the battery
