Lovely.:thumbs:

My first car was an olive green 1967 Triumph 1300 so I've always had a soft spot for the marque.

I've got a soft spot for Triumphs too. I've had a TR7, a Vitesse and Mr PG has had a Toledo :thumbs:

And that is some shine :cool:

dodo juice prime lime:The pre-wax cleanser that breaks all the rules. With micro-abrasives to remove oxidization and light swirlmarks, cleaning agents to remove watermarks and ingrained dirt, and lubricating oils for slickness and gloss.

it cleans,polishes and prepares the paint for the wax.it is like a t-cut as it removes a very tiny layer of paint.(not much in my case as other polishers).you can also change is concentration by adding water to it.i found it brilliant and i strongly recomend it.

Great effort, good work!!!!
My first car was a Dolomite 1850HL, in Inca Yellow, with overdrive. It was so cool, except when I took my girlfriend (NZ International licence) to London in it, and it decided to have an electrical "whoopsy" in Picaddilly at night - no lights, very little power, but we got home, so - no worries!





She dumped me after that, and I thought the the Kiwis were supposed to be adventurous?

Now you're getting a bit carried away :lol:. Triumph had an abysmal reliability record and Mercedes hold the world record for mileage with a 240D which covered 4.6 million km (2.8 million miles)... Mind you, Mercedes did have some problems with build quality a few years back, so you proabably got one of those cars!

ok.now you are german and you own an italian car.they say that they have never reduced the quality of thier top of the range models.s-class and cl.the 600 is thier best car.i have paid 12000euros since the car got out of warranty.it is breaking down evry time i take it out of the garage!(remember it only has 15000km)currently it's at the mercedes garage and 10days now hte cannot solve an electrical problem. the dealership has send all the reports to germany today to help them out.i was expecting problems with the alfa but had none appart from the regular problems and service listed in the handbook.(at least the italians are honest!:D since mercedes(diamler)got there hands with crysler appart from going bankrapsed their cars have dropped in quality.the 240D you have said wasn't a car....it was a german tank.that is what i call a mercedes.and the 600 grosvenor was the best merc.
