    Tyre Price???

    Tyres are they 205/70R15 CP or C rated tyres as CP are quite expensive compared to C rated. I know I am buying 2 x CP in a few weeks time

    What a bargain, I think !!

    DFDS didn't book our return from France ,Calais to Dover on 10 April so went straight to DFDS at the port. They quoted E 146. Drove into Calais to use internet and got same crossing for E 105:thumb:. Moral of the story is book early on line and get it cheaper

    Ah That will explain the streaks on the car windscreen. I had some Fenwicks cleaner and B/D over so I gave the car a once over and as I didn't leather it after there were streaks on it. Lesson learnt!

    Just used B/D for the first time and so far the results look OK. Does it get better after every application or is that the best it will be?
