Another tip is get one of those sticky rollers from dry cleaners to go over it after vacuuming the hood to lift out all the bits before you use Renovo - great stuff by the way - use it myself

Is this a follow on from the Friday joke thread? Do that to a Zed and you should have it taken off you and made to drive a Smartcar!

I have the Halfords 240 mains one and find it best to use it to evenly spread the wax over the bodywork and then do the final polish by hand - you still can't beat a good hand finish if you pardon the pun

Oh and as for those plug in the mains type things we have had nightmares with them - if the electrical ring is of poor quality and the earth is not good they are rubbish. They also have to be on the same ring as well - this has been discovered by a lot of trial and error and they have never been a r...

They can be configured in 2 ways. 1. as a Wireless extender that simply rebroadcasts the signal around the property 2. as a Network access point where the box is connected to the router via an ethernet cable where ...

Just had the one advertised by Snatch fitted with his assistance and did Brum to Oxford in clock average 88.6 - what a bloody pleasure it was to drive it for the first time with it on - no movement or 'wind' leak plus it has the original BMW fitting kit.
