iuse, turps on arag for tar spots/removal,

some say thats not wise, but it works for me,, ithink is included in the Mix of Most car polish anyway
so carnt see it doing any harm,

for bumper trim and plastics, ifind Baby oil does the trick but it only seems to last aweek or so before it dulls off again,

I couldn't afford it if I wanted too. I'm looking what? £2,000 for yours maybe? Then an extra £500 insurance for the 110 :|

£2000? I wish. If I thought I could get £2k it would be gone already. Back in September when I was supposed to be getting that 520i I wasn't even looking for that much. Is it really an extra £500 for the 20bhp on insurance though? That's shocking!
