    @Regy53 - are these all automatic these days?

    I really hope you’re keeping the plate!

    Yes r tronic iirc, lightening fast I think the best gearbox I have ever driven. I had a manual v10 last year but after having that for a bit the manual does get a little laboured and you soon miss using paddles imo

    I know a gated v10 manual is a dream for most and it really does make it a drivers car I suppose if you use it for any length of time I found myself bored of changing gear in trafffic etc

    Sign up to a trackday then. Far fewer people on track and a way more relaxed experience.

    Also get yourself out in a ring tax. I've been out in two so far. An e9* and F80 M3. It's amazing what a well tuned (suspension) car and experienced driver can do around that track!

    Hi, search 9H ceramic coating on Amazon, cost £6.99 in a little blue bottle, you get the pad and applicator. The bottle is enough for 1 full coat.

    Plan for the summer is to wet sand the car and do a full machine polish and reapply.

    It leaves a almost gloss glass type finish. Bargain really.

    Road noise must be fun, although it is a van, so road noise is probably quite high anyway on the motorway :p

    Overall not as bad as I thought it would be, motorway at 70mph slight noise increase, its pulling away and coming to a stop it seems to be noticeable louder.
