I hope you're happy with them. QuietComfort - does exactly what it says on the tin :).

I've only used the QC25 wired. I found the sound quality awful (tinny and distant). My B&W P5 on-ears are in...

I was never an advocate of QD drying (it was always just a clay lube for me), that's until I moved to a new house which has very hard water. Now it makes drying the car much easier.

So I guess it...

Nice. As a hot hatch fan myself I always liked the Saxo VTS but I have bigger than size 3 feet so I couldn't drive it.

It made me think of a more accessible Clio Williams (both in price and...

As above - You'll have trouble by hand. It's not impossible but it would take a lot of blood, sweat and tears just to begin to make a difference on a 30x30cm area for example and hand polishing is...

Welcome. Beautiful car. VW just seem to do it right these days. Always loved that colour too. It seems to go almost milky in the right light.
