    It's not that I mind doing it, it's more that even a quick wash, rinse and application of some spray wax is a couple of hours work. Not always feasible/possible with other family stuff going on, not unless I want an earful from the missus!

    aye family life happens and you cant always spend hours on the car. takes me about 45 mins to do the snowfoam, shampoo, dry and a spritz of kamikaze overcoat (my absolute favourite cos it leaves such an amazing shine). must try sonax bsd cos a lot of people swear by it and its about 1/5 of the price.

    waiting for a company to create an anti static product so dirt and dust and stuff don't stick to the paint - unlikely that'll ever happen

    Car looks awesome, proper batmobile. :thumbsup:
    Did you fit the Eibach Pro kit and how do find the ride? Erring towards these springs rather than ACS but don’t want to scrape the splitter.

    I had a local independent specialist garage fit them mate, I know the head tech there and he was a BMW for 20 years previous... I think they're great mate, I can honestly say they feel exactly the same as the comp pack springs ride wise evan when pushing on. I know some have said they're softer but I genuinely can't feel it, I think the height is perfect too any lower at the rear and I think you'd have issues with passengers.

    Could you forward details of garage and how much did they charge you? Think the ride height on the rear is fine but the front needs sorting!
    Is it 10mm on the rear and 20mm on fronts?

    Use a DI vessel for final rinse after cleaning car and no water spots and no need to dry!

    doesn't work if the water used for shampoo and rinses have turned into water spots already. yes you have to work quickly but it still happens. and yes I have a DI vessel
