Gave mine a good clean inside and out today, looks and smells lovely! Whilst the Jag is covered in mud just taking up space on my driveway

You really haven't bonded with that Jag have you?

Wise move.  Your car is wearing a furry coat.  :laugh:

Had a little try of the out of my Vc n Blo the other eveing.  Got new R logo car mats and although am saving them for spring/summer, wanted to see if they were a good fit in the footwells and see the in situ.  So I needed to hoover the footwells.  All I can say is..............Awesome vacuum!!! 

The suction is phenomenal.  The footwells were full of gravel, thick dried mud, leaves and all manner of other winter crap.  Literally within 2 mins all gone, and I mean every speck, and with ease, no rubbing the hoover tools vigorously to get engrained dirt off or bits that have worked their way into the fibres, the vacuum just sucked it all up in no time.  Will try out the mini tools at the weekend when I give the rest of the car a good going over and will post up thoughts, but so far.......... I love this machine.  :afro:



It also has the dual dryer function and I pretty much dried off the whole car with it last sunday and just used the towels to dab up the remaining drops.  Great piece of kit.

Haven't yet tried out all the interior  hoover mini tools yet but will do soon and will then post a proper review of it up

Good to hear you're happy with your Christmas pressie.

I'll be buying the Metro 'Vac & Go' when it's back in stock from Polished Bliss.

I like that!
My back is also a tad delicate so that would be a great asset round the house.
Where would I buy one?

Slims detailing have their own online shop. £28 posted which I thought was great. Next day delivery too.
