I'm surprised when people "tick everying" to presumable end up way over £100K new that they don't upgrade the sound system too?

Re: Almost like an Alpina ?

I could have sworn I saw him pull out of my local coffee shop over the weekend in a new M3, dark blue, maybe tan interior - first one I’ve seen - rather good actually (purposeful I’d say) and the front grills not too noticeable.

Re: Leather

Update Will try "Colin" shortly too. The people in Somersham put me on to a chap (Simon at Cambridge Concours) - he looked at the photo and thinks the bolster was previuosly repaired hence the colour came off on cleaning. He's quoting £150+VAT to reconolise the bolster. Another approach is A&R Pound...

Grand Tour

Sorry if previously posted, but I recently got Amazon Prime and catching up on the Grand Tour (realising probably aired a long time ago!). Season 2 Espisode 3 I think - they do a piece about office lunchtimes - they set up a racetrack in a commercial estate and have two resident companies race each ...

Re: Leather

Interesting to see others using various soaps for cleaning leather. Personally I've only used Gliptone leather cleaner and found it is excellent.

Re: New B8

There's an easy top up of £1500 or so (maths not my strong point) for opting for the 23" wheels....

23" wheels... :think :shock:

Leather

Hi Any recommendations on process and products to improve the Nappa leather seat bolsters in my new (used) Volvo please? I seem to recall Gliptone leather cleaner getting some recommendations on here - would that be all I need? And is there a specific one? The top pic (1079) is of the driver's seat ...
