Are those definitely the correct bulbs for the front indicators? I could have swore they were PSY24W. Unless they are different from the non-fog light models.

Just I remember looking to replace...

That certainly has cleaned up well. Looking good.

Condition isn't too bad, considering the age and mileage. Looking forward to the updates.

What a difference! Great big screen. I've got the RNS 315 in my Altea which has sat nav, dab, sd and USB but the screen is much smaller. That screen size looks great!

My response is the same as most of the others so far - remove the coating. I had the same issue. So frustrating.

You could try the graphite though. That's what wipers come coated in when they are...

I've got Dunlop SP Sport FastRepsonse on my car at the moment and would have to agree that they are quite a noisy tyre.

I'd suggest a good brush/vacuum, then a weak solution of apc/water applied with a mop or sponge then rinsed with clean water and left to dry.

All glass sealants I've ever tried do this. It's one of the downsides of using a sealant on the windscreen. And one of reasons I no longer apply it to the front screen.

That looks great. I had one of those about 10 years ago, it was the PD150 model. Great car and one I wish I hadn't sold.

Full de-con, minor correction then a coat of Sonax Hybrid NPT. I'll keep that topped up with BSD over the winter.
