What water filter did you get? The water spots drive me crackers so keen to try and minimise these.

I got one of these

Also a water tester, but got that off eBay. Think it was £3.19 delivered.

I think a lot of people are getting used to the look of the new CTR now and it seems to be getting less radical now everyone is over the initial shock. I thought it looked great from day 1. I think it looks even better now, esp in the right colour.

I have some of the lacquer peeling off. Would you recommend I have this done? Any idea how much it is?

This won't cure that....if you lacquer is peeling then you'll need to get it sorted (repainted) first before applying a ceramic coating.

BeeEmm,

Thanks dude.

The guy I'm using is pretty switched on to be fair, they detail big boys toys all the time, and even brand new cars, he knows his stuff.

I love the washing tips above, I was with the detailer earlier who told me exactly as per above (even though he uses compressed air to dry) so Im going to get the things I need.

He quote me £750 for the polish, exo and crystal coating (5 years guarantee) but as I'm a professional videographer, I'm making him a promo for a swap for his services. Winner!
£750!!!!! Bloody nora
I'm either too tight or totally out of touch.......or both

Re my comments above on good value for money. But if it’s just an exchange of services then may well be worth it.
