MoT passed, zero advisories, that is 8 years with 2-3 cars and my No-Advisory record stands.

Happy bunny.

Those reds look fabulous when they're properly wax polished, I don't think my silver one would be quite as bright.

Are you sure you haven't got 'OBSESSION' mixed up with your Calvin Klein Alasdair? :rofl2:

I searched everywhere on their UK site and they don't have anything called 'Obsession'? - They do have something called 'Oblivion' - but at £40 plus Tax for 200ml :shock: :shock: :shock: , I'll pass and stick to my synthetic wax! :-D

After some very rude words about the condition of my wheels ( :) ) I decided to spend an afternoon sanding and repainting them (tyres on-/-playing card mask method)
