    Thanks for the tip! I used Ferecla by hand and it also made the problem worse! I recently used Auto Glym paint restorer which made little difference but a quick going over by hand with Meguiars Ultimate Cut on a sponge applicator helped to bring back the black gloss! The Ferecla left an opaque 'grey' finish that I was not happy with....

    thanks for the positive comments as usual Giles. :tongueout:roud:

    The black gloss parts are an absolute pain - don't know why this is.

    I might try the Meguiars too.
     
  4. Only the gloss black bits on the front...my diffuser looks brand new still. Such a shame the fronts go how they do. Ive got a million indentations from bugs in mine that i just cant shift!

    Car looks lovely, colour is fantastic!

    This is the reason why I use my 200 all the time,
    No matter how much you try to keep it clean, only summer use etc.
    It will always pick up stone chips, scratches etc.
    Mines 2012 and I'm up on 8K already, just enjoying driving it.
    Done a euro trip and everything already, such good fun to drive.

    I just use all the best stuff to wash and maintain the car,
    But drive it and enjoy as its going to get marks and it's impossible to stop without not using the car ever lol.

    I have to say - I'm shocked that this isn't a more popular colour.

    I love the Albi - It's really similar to the Subaru Blue on the B22 and P1 and my old 172 Cup Mondial Blue - it looks ace IMO on any sports car.

    cheers buddy

    funny you should say that. Been looking in to this for a while. Got the spoiler and bodyshop for painting lined up, and would do the fitting myself.

    Also looking at getting a set of Black Speedlines so I have two sets of alloys/tyres for track and road.

    Just depends on whether I decide to keep the car - unsure at the mo.

    Looks really nice, not sure if I will get the cup spoiler for my car as I think it looks a little odd on an albi blue 197. I feel is have to get all the skirts too. Haha

    Cheers guys.

    I have just added the stubby aerial today - it was either a stubby aerial or some tape that came with the spoiler to protect it from the longer aerial... great french design...;/

    Ordered the RS front badge today - £26 from Renault :smile:

    Thinking of wheel bolt covers now.

    Also still debating whether to swap to the speedlines - can get then cost price from a contact in Italy I know.
