    Just the standard Brembo ones. I did think about M1144's or DS2500 but couldn't justify the price.

    £40 absolute bargain! Although personally I'm a fan of the newer style logo rather than the old :tongueout:

    What kind of monster are you... you clean your car and don't take pictures for us?! :excited:

    It was just getting dark as I was finishing off and the condensation was settling. I will try my damnedest to get some pictures tomorrow. Roll on Summer when I can detail till gone 8! I was actually quite pleased with how it came out, as normally I am finicky about every minor defect etc.

    Nothing majorly related to what I have done etc (but kind of)

    When I was looking for new pins for the front brakes, I realised that these calipers aren't Renault specific and that they are used on many different cars (different look, but same design/operation). It turns out that the Alfa Romeo Mito also uses the same caliper design and the pin kit from Mintex fits, and is over half the price.

    Not much this week, normal clean for tomorrow (which I will take pictures of :tongueout:)

    I did however go for a drive over the Mendips and down through Cheddar. Very quiet and nice weather for a change allowed me to take some pictures.

    I must admit, I like that one but this one looks better to me

    So gave it (another) clean today. It badly needs a machine polish on the passenger side as it takes the brunt of hedges and dirty country roads. Who says snow foam doesn't do a thing! This was Krystal Kleen Detail Blizzard Xtreme. Awesome stuff, and this company makes great cleaning products. I would thoroughly recommend them.

    I love summer as it means the car stays cleaner longer but I'd bei lying if I say I didn't like winter, in that it gives me an excuse to wash it and see all the rubbish being removed.
