You should add that in your signature

Maybe it's time for a poll - how long do you spend cleaning your Z4 and how long driving it? :rofl:
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey & 108Ms. Cruise, Storage and pdc. 325ti Sport as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

That's a great looking kit there, Pastry :thumbsup: .
I've been racking my brain trying to remember what polish it was that was being raved about on this forum a while back (I think it might have been Mr Wilks or Smartbear who was full of praise for it) - and now I think it was Topaz. Thanks for the reminder.
Yep, Topaz is the one👍🏻 It’s very quick and easy to use so great for people who want to drive their cars, instead of talking about it or cleaning them :D

Who would do such a thing Fred :o I guess it must be hatchback drivers as the sunshine is wasted on them :D

But I may even try it - I should have time as I don't have to scrub a pram-top! :poke: :lol:

I'm in that camp also. Although I must admit that the results after spending almost 9 hours cleaning it prior to last Saturdays meet did make me love it even more..
Nine hours cleaning? Stuff that - I haven't driven 9 hours in mine this month yet! (I may clean it later). :)

Even your neighbours are fed up with the noise of you polishing. Looks like they've decided to sell up :rofl:
