    Scratches on Interior plastics...

    I hate piano black for this very reason, I successfully removed some faint scratched from the instrument binnacle in the A7 with Duraglit! Was recommended on another forum so I took a punt and it worked well. I have also had good results in previous cars with PlastX

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I've been lucky enough to never had a broken spring, but would only replace when they broke as there is no real rule of thumb for longevity. If the shocks are worn then obviously those would be replaced and the springs checked but as it's metal fatigue there is no visual check that would show anything other than rust. I couldn't replace just one though for reasons above.

    Mmm, a 8/9 year old spring will have different characteristics to the new one, that coupled with the fact it's nearing end of life based on the broken one I couldn't replace just one.

    Do you not replace both? Ref the courier I have parcels delivered daily and the only company I've had issue with are Yodel, they are atrocious, in fact I ordered a couple of iPads for Christmas presents from John Lewis and they were delivered elsewhere. When I called JL they were also pretty unhelpful saying they needed to speak to Yodel before they could refund, but guess what...Yodel weren't answering the phone. After stamping my feet I did get a refund but told JL I would buy elsewhere as I will never use Yodel, had i known they used them i wouldn't have shopped there.

    Does it really make that much of a difference, I've towed a caravan in the past with about 6 different cars on std fans without issue.

    You do come across as a pretentious little prick.

    To be fair, anyone can pop out and lease most cars nowadays.

    Spooky, my new tub of heat shrink has just been delivered this morning.
  13. Wheels look good, great wheel holder too, it it OEM?

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    Indeed, and scary what gets regurgitated/shared etc without fact checking and then how quickly it gathers pace nowadays.

    Yes, similar to dishes soaking I reckon but a quick pre was does the same imo. Detailing is really a personal thing but I see little value in a lot of it or any ROI as some of it combined with your time (and time you could be doing other things) soon adds up. Again, all just imo of course.

    battery charger/trickle charger what to buy

    Aldi are doing a cheap charger at the moment for £12.99 says it's auto trickle. Be interested in the real world difference between this and a comparable v/A CTek.

    ^^ +1 I also remember reading somewhere (possibly on DW) that it has little/no real world effect. I also bought a 5l tub and never got round to buying the gun after reading it.

    Are you sure that you're not one of the old gadgies who keep seeing accidents in their mirrors?...
  19. I'd put a shiny new pound on the dealers kicking the arse out of this and claiming for new parts when they are sent away as "checked OK".

    battery charger/trickle charger what to buy

    I've just wired up the ctek direct to the battery terminals on the kids picanto. Easiest option imo.

    This couldn't actually happen, could it?

    It's headlined to get clicks, I've seen similar doing the rounds on social media. My F11 had a speed limiter and I loved it for the average cameras but it was obviously set by the driver so irrelevant in the respect they want you to believe.

    F10 boot release switch in footwell.

    I used a fine sharpie on the passenger heater fan switch, the wife's nails scratched it with a similar amount of damage. That's even easier as it's a straight line, the fan one is all curved. When I'd done you honestly couldn't tell and this is in direct line of sight. Shit photo but this was after

    Probably derv and oil brought up to the surface with the recent warm weather

    Swap out the F10....?

    Out of those and depending on the engines (personally I'd only look @ 6 pots) I'd be back in a 5. Keep us posted and good luck

    Parking brake switch

    I'm sure I don't need to say but I'd use a plaggy trim removal tool.
