Update - Got a nice set of Belvedere alloys for winter. Swapped off the Bridgestone S001's they came with for my Goodyear UltraGrip's, then gave them a good clean as there was A LOT of imbedded brake dust on the alloys.

Then I coated them with Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour to make it that bit easier to look after. Also aligned all the centre caps with the air valve for OCD fun.

Been a busy weekend in the parish, decided I hated the silver disc hubs and stripped them right back and painted them satin black, then I fitted the Belvedere winter alloys after I coated them in Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour. Then I gave it a good clean as it's due it's service this week as it's about to hit 6k miles since the last one.

Topped up the ceramic coat with Gyeon CanCoat to get me to Easter before I do a full reapplication of a full ceramic coating pair.

Decided to go for a steering wheel refurb as I like my steering wheel slightly thicker and the old one had a few scratches that were annoying me.

Nothing too exciting.

Minor service back on December at 10.3k miles, and today had the VAQ diff serviced (every 3 years) at now 10.8k miles
