I've had now since June, worst mpg 38, best mpg 54.3, any negatives? None whatsoever, I still climb in with a silly grin. Sync works as it should on my Xperia S, although the text side is a "no go" (not bothered about that)
Here's my 'beasts' spec.....


New Race Red Zetec S
1ltr 125ps engine
Full leather
Sat nav
17" alloys
City pack
Privacy glass
Heated seats
Front & rear mats
Zero Road tax
Full bodykit

No problems, I use a soft alloy wheel brush with wonder wheels, brush on, rinse of.
I've given it a pre winter detail, claying & applying carnoubra wax. It's been a long time since I'd done some 'proper' valeting, forgot what hard work it was :)

Would really recommend not using wonder wheels.

I used to use it until it ate the centre badges on my fiesta and I started to read all the problems it can cause being so caustic.

I use billberry now.

+1 for the bilberry

I apply bilberry and brush lightly then apply snowfoam and brush slightly more aggressively.

Hi

 

 Can someone do me a favour and measure the distance from the back of the front seats to the rear of the boot, with the rear seats down. I need to know if i can fit my MTB in the boot, otherwise I may have to get a towbar fitted.   :( Thanks.

Cheers Stewart.  I thought it might, as it fits in fine in my 02 Focus. Just want to make sure before I order a Rhino cover.
