    The detailer advised that there are many products on the market that could do a reasonable job, but it's all down to training and the paint preparation.

    Luckily I got the guardx thrown in for free by the dealer. I'd have been gutted if I'd have paid full whack.

    Drove to Glasgow and currently sat waiting for Slipknot to come on stage at the SSE Hydro.

    No pictures of the car as it’s covered in road salt and all manner of dirt so here’s a few pictures of the supporting act Behemoth.

    I heard they were banning all clothing with spikes! Hope you have a good night @Maypack. When are you heading home?

    I changed my wife’s FR Black to have Purple but the colour on the infotainment screen looks different to the Digital Dash and Door Cards whereas yours look the same.

    What parameters did you change?

    There’s two parameters,

    Colourlist
    LIN colourlist

    The latter requires gamma correction, as what’s perceived by our eyes differs to the values you think you’ve set. Hence why orange may look yellow until you apply the above.

    I’ve changed the colours in both of those parameters to read the same for the shade of purple that my wife wants but for some reason the infotainment screen colouring looks different. I’ll double check it when I get home later.

    Cheers.

    Certain colours will need altering on the LIN list. What have you entered? And what colour are you getting? Try a lower number on the blue channel 1/2 the value you entered?

    Yeah they’re good, not cheap and better to go when quieter.

    I usually go for the special but it’s like £69.
