Thanks!

Anybody got any good wheel cleaning/preservation tips for forged alloys?

Aside from not kerbing them...

Hats off to you for name checking your dogs - as the owner of a recently deceased Black Lab, the mention of a Hector and Wilson brought a smile to my face!

Good on you!

Why would you want to do that unless you own a Turbo S? Sounds a bit like people putting M3 badges on 316's to me!

Congrats on the new Turbo though buddy. Basalt looks fab when clean! Just had mine completely covered by paintshield.co.uk to keep it looking tip top.

Thanks - I was considering a paint shield covering did you go for the ahem, full frontal or the most prone areas?

I was going to go just for the full front, but in the end I had the whole thing done, and a paint correction (got rid of a few swirl marks before they applied the shield). I'm really pleased with it.

Sounds good - did it take long? I guess with the whole car being done you have no line where the shield stops?

I left the car with them Monday @ 3pm, had it back, Friday 2pm.

There is one join on the whole car which is on the C pillar. It's evident in this picture because the light is right on it, but i think you have to know it's there to be able to see it in normal light, as it were. You can just see where the film goes around the bonnet badge in the other picture. If you're having the full front they wrap it round the back of the front wings etc but if the half-front there will be a seam on the bonnet I expect.

Google is your friend, unless that was a dummy for the elephant in the room?
