    I get stuff from cleanmycar or something like that. Good prices and all the best products :smile: nice car as well very big jump.

    we found the same with insurance as my oh had a Clio 1.2 then got the r27 and was £300 cheaper :smile:
     
  6. I didn't get to choose mine as the guy that I replaced did so.

    I liked both of those number plates you've disregarded :tongueout:

    Mine is HY63 MKD I think which isn't too bad.

    Well picked her up last night, straight to shell and filled up with V-Power.

    So far so good, been very sensible, but feels great.

    Here's a few pics from when I picked her up

    Black with silver wheels is the classy choice.

    Looks superb.

  14. This colour with those wheels was on my wish list...stealth motor, just like my black Clio 200. My wife talked me out of it though, said it would be too similar to what I had.

    Very very nice though.

    Panther black is a great colour, looks fantastic when polished, my old Zetec-S was panther black.

    Photobucket seems to lose a bit of the image quality. But here are a couple from the weekend away with a trip through the peaks.

    One the misses thought was highly amusing

    New camera and the photography skills need some improvements.

    Loving the car though.


    Also can't recommend Mottram Hall highly enough, had a fantastic few days away. Turned up and Wayne Rooney and Rory Mcilroy were shooting the new Nike advert aswell so quite an entertaining afternoon.

    FYI, Flickr is a much better image hosting site. It doesnt rape the quality of the images near as much as photobucket.

    As for the car. She looks superb. I still can't believe I didnt like the "fish face" when it initially came out (Though I was the exact same with the old Clio 200). It does look nice and aggressive from the front, though still has a nice subtlety about it.

    Well I ordered some products online and had them deleivered in time for this weekend.

    Plan was to wash the car on Saturday... I started, get it jet washed, and then the rain/wind came, so left it for this morning.

    How it looked before

    Started on the wheels. Bilbury wheel cleaner and an EZ brush, couldn't believe how easy the crap came off.

    So on to the main, washed from the roof down, with the two bucket method (well one and a washing up bowl), did the shuts with a small detailing brush and some Citrus Power.

    Washed with Auto finesse lather and a lambs wool mitt, one panel at a time and rinsed. Then checked for any bits I had missed and went over those, I seemed to miss quite a few, I'm blaming the black car.

    Love the fleck in this

    Rinsed

    After that, dried the whole car and used my tested pot of DJ Blue Velvet.

    [​IMG]

    Buffed off and some beading and reflection shots!

    Still haven't quite mastered the reflection shots, don't seem to get much depth of colour from the car.

    And one of the tyre gel on.

    Hopefully she will be a bit easier to clean for the next few months now. Try and keep on top of it.
