Forgot to mention its a ttid twin turbo model with the hirsch 200 upgrade....the only mod I'd really like is the hirsch steering wheel which I have seen on another blokes car.....looks awesome....

It's one of the few cars I have ever had that am struggling to find fault with...

The economy to date hasn't been stunning at an overall figure of 38 to 39 mpg but that's probably down to quite a few short journeys of 6 to 10 miles over the tankful......

Will have to give that a go..to be honest I'm a long term fan of autoglym and was going to pick up a pack tommorow....might try your recommendation instead.

I'm looking for a good tyre shine and wheel seal as well if anyone has a favourite.....

Tried some turtle wax ice today that a friend lent me......

Terrible stuff,leaves greasy maks all over and never dries to a haze...washed the car again and used autoglym to fix it.

Will get some Megs in the future definetly

Thank you,

Both are beautiful dogs,uncle and nephew!

The cage is one made in Sweden and is crash tested to help dogs survive a rear ender hopefully

They sell them in this country via safedog

Not cheap but worth it when your 'kids' are involved!
