Re: New FR sport 1.5Tsi Black magic

I'd prefer the Irish set up, my FR also has chrome trip, seems a bit out of place. Minor issue tho

Re: Ateca with Cross over styling pack and side steps

..and I'm the opposite. Can't see the point of side steps on a car that isn't that much taller than a standard car. Too much like a 'wannabe' 4 x 4

Re: Hi Everyone, I'm thinking of getting an Ateca, Advice please

Only time will tell I suppose. I really think BMW are massively overrated and still project themselves as somewhere above the mainstream when in actual fact...they are the new mainstream. I've had a 120d (years ago) and now have the Ateca FR 150 TDi. Chalk and cheese vehicles but I really like the A...

Re: Ateca Owners Don't Do The "Nod"

Blimey, I can think of nothing worse than nodding or waving at every other Ateca on the road, imagine driving a Corsa? You'd need to see an osteopath daily to sort your aching neck

I'd try a local specialist exhaust manufacturer, no idea where you're based but as an example.... http://www.zorstecexhaustsolutions.co.uk/ North of England http://www.profusioncustoms.com/custom-stainless-steel-exhaust-in-devon/ SW England https://www.powerflowexhausts.co.uk/Powerflow-Sittingbourne...

Re: Need a set of Tyres

Size of tyres ? Google is generally your friend. Just have a look at all the usual sites, Oponeo, Black Circles, Cambrian Tyres, My Tyres etc. Then try your local tyre place and see if they'll do a deal, Costco also sell tyres and are often pretty cheap (Michelins mainly) Some are simply mail order,...

Re: When should I renew Ateca

Blimey, I'd be keeping it for a good few years longer (I do wonder if dealers actually mis-sell diesels when potential owners do such low annual mileage) Just on depreciation, it has cost you upwards of £1.20 a mile to run.

Eurocarparts have their usual ##% sale on....a pair of Brembo discs is £74.99 or £112 incl new matched Brembo pads (Discount code is Bank70) Dealers don't do themselves any favours with the prices they charge (or when they give you a price that you baulk at, then they reduce it for you !

Re: Cleaning products

It was a tongue in cheek comment I'm afraid. I used to spend a fair bit of time and effort cleaning and polishing/waxing cars only for them to be filthy 2 days later so a quick rinse off every now and then will do for me....using some autoglym once or twice a year.
