    Just a word of warning here, if you've got the Bridgesoaps on, be really carful as you're scrubbing them in - especially in the wet!

    They take a fair while to bed in and warm up and even when you've done this, they're not fond of the wet especially, with the chasis being so rigid.

    Ignor at your peril ;)

    The FR TDi is a fab car, I have one in black but I think I got the bad apple as its been in the dealer for a total of 4 weeks a different times in the 4 months of ownership for different issues. Tha main 1 being the EML! Just my luck, now thats fixed I still have steering probs, car doesnt drive straight and its already had a wheel balance/alignment within days of ownership from delivery miles!! Hopefully it will be cured soon.

    Oh... Just to say, when getting a courtsey car push for 1 to the equiv as what you've got.. they give in eventually. I had a yellow FR when mines was in!

    Just a quick note to say I love my car !!!!

    On lates this week so both journeys are nice and quick on the M1, but the journey home is great with all the red lights on the dash. Just fitted a brand new Micro Road Pilot as I couldnt figure out a good place to put the Origin B2 I had.

    The car has come with Pirellis on it P6000 I think, taking it easy at the moment anyway.

    Like you love the car and the red dash - even though dials can be a bit difficult to read.

    I have P6000's with a Bridgestone spare - do you think I should take this up with the stealer? (bit odd I thought and this note has just reminded me).

    Isnt the spare a space saver though - so there isnt too much they are going to do about it. Checked mine, at least its a proper steel wheel though and not one of those orange bycicle wheels.

    I am definitely going to get another wheel locking nut for each of my wheels, will feel a little safer when there are two types of locks on each.

    Hmm I can see there a screwdriver(?), jack, towing eye, locking nut key and crap wrench.

    And a place that looks like it should have another towing eye???

    Ahh yes, can see it now. Never tried taking them off.

    Is there a special tool to get the little caps off the nuts on the cupra wheels? Off to get a set of mcguards or whatever they are called in addition to the ones I currently have.

    Parked next to another FR in the car park today, a Plat Grey one.

    Great isnt it, I am now looking for excuses to go out in mine.

    My next questions is that I have seen many people upgrade their rear wiper, and to be honest mine is crap also, it seems to miss a bit and smear.

    I am looking at this, is this the one that every is going for?
