Pity he’s not more local to Manchester, though could be useful when visiting the in-laws😄

Mine passed it's MoT today and had an aircon service. They also checked the sunroof drains which were fine. Will get the krytox out soon and lubricate the seals.

Today I've been trying to sort out a few stonechips that had started going rusty on the bonnet. Unfortunately Halfords don't do Oryx white so will have to order some. In the meantime, I've treated the rust and once dried coated in vaseline as a temporary measure to keep the weather off.

Weather makes washing the car a pleasure again.  First good wash since I got the wheels tidied up

wheels look great against the grey, you can get a nice sparkle on that colour, and it doesn't look to bad when dirty if you are lazy over winter. :whistle:.

Bit Jel of the sunroof tbh, its the one option that didn't come up on many cars when i was looking.

Lovely looking (I’m biased). Just cleaned the door seals on mine with some Liqui Moly Gummi Pfledge.

We're at that point of the year where you're cleaning just to get the bugs off the windscreen...at least we can wash at night now.

Had a puncture repaired. Was in Norfolk visiting family, left and got about 1/2 mile when the low pressure warning pinged on. Very impressed with the chaps at Kwikfit Kings Lynn. 30 mins and all sorted. They checked all four tyres plus reset the computer. When I went to get in the car though the fob battery had given up, luckily I keep spares in the car.

I'm retiring soon and fancy something different but everytime I go out in the TCR I keep thinking I'd be mad to get rid. So many positives with the only negative the gearbox and most of the time it's very good.
