    i like sonus clay and zanio but most clays will do the job mate.

    the megs kit you can get in most places is a good start

    Edit. just spotted the mk5 on cream Bentleys is that the one off ed38 ?

    N8 knows the score lol ;) he is correct, had a few bits on it which needed tlc but apart from the minor stuff it's in tip top. If you didn't know it you would say it was never bumped, but saying that who dosn't know this car haha! Hasn't james got an audi a3 now?? Nay ( my mate the owner of the mkV) showed me a pic, it looked mega tidy ;)

    Well.... With it being quite a well known car he wants to put his own mark on it so probs, but i dont think he will go too far because alot of the current stuff makes the car something to remember. He should be all set for UD ill come see you for a chat ;)

    Haha! I'm the same don't worry i can't wait! Lol :) got the bra mainly for stonechips but looks quite tidy when you coat it in autoglym vinal care :) gives a nice shine. I used to hate the things but you dont see many cars with bra's on here so thort id give it a go........ There is probs a reason why no cars have them on here though! Everyone hates them :)
