Next time I have some spare time I want to tackle my black Brera’s bodywork issues. Mainly surface scratches and swirl marks which are doing my head in, and I will probably be doing the entire car by hand as machine polishers scare me!
Had a quick look and it seems this Meguirs stuff might be...
I currently use Mothers Carnuba Cleaner Wax which works well on the car. I've tried Autoglym Super Resin Polish but find it leaves streaks and temporary stains in the paint. Not ideal.
Whilst the Mothers stuff works nicely, I want the ultimate shine, regularly. So I need something that...
Do you have the ultimate modified car?
We are currently looking for people who are interested in taking part in a brand new online series for Channel 4 about extreme modified cars.
If you think you have the best in Britain, then we want to hear from you!

Whilst discussing GTA suspension it occurred to me the 147/156 GTA is a flawed diamond - gorgeous looks, amazing acceleration, lovely interior and an engine to die for, but 'could do better' suspension setup and worrying NCAP rating.
That got me thinking about other flawed diamonds, e.g.
I have a 2005 156JTDM 150 remapped to about 185BHP.
I have recently started using BP Ultimate diesel, and the car seems to be producing less smoke on full throttle.
I use the car for a daily commute ( 70 miles on motorway/fast a roads ) so there is little chance of soot building up (!)
Right all looking good for the purchase of a black clover Gt next week.
So all eyes turn to the chassis. The standard stuff has to go. Eibach arb kit is a definite.
My last Gt had Koni FSD with eibach springs. which to be fair i thought to be a pretty decent compromise for fast road use.
On May 9th I am going to give my son, Sean (10yrs), the day off school and bring him along to the TI track day. We are going as spectators as I am barely making up the money to tax, NCT and finish the exhaust on my spider in time. Might even show up in the 156 :rolleyes: if I cant get...
I pulled on to a BP today. Needed fuel as running on fumes. No prices for BP ultimate displayed as is now the norm. Picked up the pump assuming the normal 7p premium on top of premium unleaded. No. Regular unleaded. 127.9 BP ultimate 155.9. Have a ****ing laugh. I only noticed after £10 went in...
I am considering ordering the Racechip Ultimate for my Mito 155HP.
The company claims I will achieve 200HP and 297Nm.
Has anyone tried this mod? If so, was it worth it? How much faster does the racechip make the car? Any issues?
Ive not been a member here long, having only owned my red GT JTD for about a month.
I was previously an Astra Coupe owner for 7 years, so have always been a part of the Vauxhall forums.
One thing im struggling with is finding ANY wheels that suit the GT. I know anything is possible (as...
