Nice car c87reed

Not bad on the old insurance
Now I'm into my 40's insurance is becoming quite bearable.

I just insured the Porsche for £160 a year, Clio 200 for £225 and my CR-V for £123

All fully comp. Porsche & Clio protected with full no claims, CR-V I have zero no claims on. (as they're being used on the Porsche)

BTT -
Bet your UP handles like a go kart and 50mpg is awesome stuff mate

Believe me, I did bail on a couple of occasions. I just parked it up in the garage and did a couple of hours here and there.

I am jealous of all the lucky bunch with double garages, with enough space to easily work and move around each side. My garage isn't a bad sized single, but once I get the car in alongside all of my c*** it soon becomes a squeeze and I end up having to move it in and out to work.

We also have a 5dr up! in a lower spec with the 60ps engine. I probably wouldn’t have really comsidered one had I not have driven my partner’s beforehand. She loves hers, it is a sound small car and feels pretty nippy for what it is. It’s pretty roomy inside considering the small dimensions.

Cool. See you have a nilfisk p150. How do you rate it? Can't decide between it and a Kranzle.

Well I ended up with a stupidly good deal on the P150 in the end. It was on on prime a year back at £250 and it arrived with a very slight crack (hardly noticeable) in the front panel. I negotiated with Amazon to keep it at a further reduced price of £200. So at that price it really was a no-brainer to have the P150 over a Kranzle. I reckon that the overall fit and finish will be much higher on the Kranzle machines but for me it would depend on the cost difference as to which one I went for.

It's been a pretty faultless machine to date, it has more than enough guts about it for detailing. If I was going to choose a Kranzle, I'd have the K10 with a similar flow rate to the P150. I've upgraded the hose on mine and swapped it out for a 15m instead of the standard 10m. A pressure washer dealer (a Nilfisk stockist) advised me that replacement parts, such as the seals, are a lot cheaper for the Nilfisk in comparison to Kranzle.

Thanks for that. If I could drop on a P150 for £250 I'd be all over it! However when they are around £400 they are getting close to Kranzle money and I can't help but want one! Lol

About as good as they price wise at the minute I think. CPC have them at the same price also.
