Do they remove the numberplates to clean on the bench? That's real attention to detail :D

Looks like there's some nasty green growth on the rear window glass - that will be a bugger to get off ;)

Id be interested to know what the cost of possible paint correction work is like Nige... Someone quoted me up here for £300 including a ceramic coating afterwards... Which seems steep incomparison to what you're getting!

He charged me £130 in total to do the outside of the car and the engine bay :thumleft:

The Interior didn't need doing as I can get Toyota to Hoover the car out next week on Thursday 30th August when the MOT is done :giggle:

Ceramic Coating I had put on my car lasts 12 months, but you can get up to 5 years :!:

There and back is on 1.5 tanks of Shell V power for a GT86 averaging 46 mpg ;)

Wow. That looks like it has had a layer of glass applied to the bodywork.
Very nice.

You don't half do some miles! Fair play to the gt86 returning decent mpg on the motorway etc
