Yeah, I'm a bit of a clean freak with my cars.

I removed all the wheels and did the following.

Wash wheels with car shampoo.
Tardis - Tar and glue remover
Rinse
Iron X - Iron particle remove
Re-wash
Clay
Rinse
IPA wipe down
Layer of FinishKare 1000p Wax.

Also washed all the arches etc and also treated with tardis/iron x. Waxed any exposed paintwork inside the arch and waxed the callipers. Treated the plastics with g303 protectant.

Makes keeping the wheels/arches much easier now and I'll probably repeat the process in October ready for winter. Haven't had chance to go over the car properly as I'd like due to the bloody weather
I salute you sir!

If my Mrs would let me spend time cleaning the car to that degree I certainly would.

Here's a few pictures of mine after a recent scrub up.

Very nice indeed both :-)

I still wish the 120d had a twin exhaust at the rear.

Undecided what to do yet with regards to getting one fitted. I may see how much a standard 125d back box costs and see if I could get one fitted along with a larger diffuser just for the looks more than anything. :-)

Hallo to everybody! I am gong to order the 116i with the M Packet and I just want to ask if I should put the M brakes or not... Optically are very beautiful, but costing 600€ make me think also about how useful they are.. What do you advice me?

I must admit I specified the brakes for their looks as much as anything. The brakes are great but can't really offer any comparison as I haven't driven another F20 without them. If I had to choose between say between the mp brakes or the HK stereo for instance, then I would go for the HK everytime. Fortunately I have both

Hope this helps.

I have an M Sport 116i, and I use the car also for track days. The regular brakes are very good, and they have not faded on me yet.

The regular brakes are lighter, which is better for performance and comfort. They are also cheaper to replace, and offer more flexibility when it comes to choice of wheels.

I am very pleased with my regular brakes. If I were you, I would spend my money elsewhere.

Have you checked the Variable Sport Steering (test it first, if you have the chance) + instrument panel with extended functionality?
