    Get yourself to Costco and buy a mahoosive bag of microfibre clothes to remove the wax, they can be reused after washing - but generally I use three or four of these to remove the wax from my cars - they do get very clogged

    They are about £20 for 40 (or something like that)

    You can buy a smaller quantities from Asda, good value too.

    Looks like Primrose Hill? My 850i lives less than a mile away in Swiss Cottage.

    Lovely looking car.

    Hey Johnathan, are you the blue one with 'easy' in number plate?

    Or ...are you on the hill (I won't mention street names here to be safe) that starts near where Richer Sounds is?


    If you ever want a meet to talk shop / good mechanics /audio upgrades / any other 8 related matters, just PM anytime. Be a pleasure to meet any neighbourly 8ers.

    BB - Lovely job on the car.
    Just bought a Dodo Juice DAS 6 - for early xmas gift to myself, so hoping to give that a go at somepoint.

    A quick question where did you get your Throwing Stars referb - mine are starting to corode and need doing.

    Thanks

    8 Series -a car I have always wanted.
    Now I just need to buy a petrol station to run it

    Sparky - I went for the cheap, 1 day option, paid £160 and regretted it immediately as the job is clearly not up to scratch. (very minor flaking / bubbling already apparent and i won't return it as they would only do the same job again).
    I was offered a proper Throwing Star refurb by a well known 8er that was only about £60-80 more, but he wanted the car for up to a week - i turned this down because i didn't want to be away from my car for that long, but its looking like very good value indeed to me right now. PM me for details if that option interests you.
    The more expensive option could also entail powder coating the star cover, for not too much extra ££s. They look very good with a graphite star on them, ask here if you want me to post a picture (can't find the pic right now but can do if asked).

    Thanks BB.

    I have been told Paint and Spit and Polish are very good.
    Yours look great in the pic if that's little consolation.
    Just had the roof and nose on mine done. Chips away in Cambridge.

    PS see you on 8's forum.

    What did you get done on the roof Sparky?
    Just a respray, or was there any corrosion where roof meets front screen?

    Actually, when I went to Costco last week, they now have the 36 pack of microfibres for £10.98!!!
