    Recommeng me a good detailer in East Yorkshire

    I've just taken delivery of a new A3 cabrio snd didn't want to pay the rip off from the dealer for Gardex treatment, preferring to wax the car myself. However I'm concerned about the fabric hood.

    Kerb view dipping function - can this be retrofitted?

    Can the kerb view dipping function on the passenger side door mirror be retro fitted? I had this on my last car and it was really useful for avoiding any kerbing of the alloys but my new car is from stock and doesn't have this as a factory fitted option.
