  1. What model is it you have? Xenon dont normally go yellow even when they are old. Most of the newer xenons are much better than the original ones now. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  2. Its grim and no need for it. Guarantee that its seen many local car washes and the paint is in a right pickle. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  3. I would say be patient and aim for the best car overall rather than age. When I sold mine it was an 07 but had 41k on the clock, it had hardly been run in. Just check for the normal is250 issues like brakes and water pumps. And my personal thing is tyres, if someone has put cheap tyres on then that's a red flag for me.

  4. To be fair when I picked up my mazda, the generation that I brought were well known for bad paint on wheels. When I first went to see it both rear wheels had gone at under 3 years old, but they said mazda had stopped doing replacements under warranty, dealers had to sort it. Had all four done at the dealers expense. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  5. Worth looking to getting some wheel sealant for them. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  6. Well done a great result. I'd still take the new ones to get painted though [emoji1787] Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  7. So the massive quote you had was for pads and discs including fitting? Its normally labour costs that ramp brake pricing right up as they charge a fixed labour cost to them although it only takes a short amount of time. What was the actual cost of the parts? Do you not know anyone who could fit them for you? Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  8. In all fairness certain wheel cleaners such as the highly concentrated ones at local car washes will ruin painted wheels not just diamond cut ones. There are so many people suffering with this issue even on wheels that have been coated in protective coatings although these can help. Good luck with it and if the dealer will support look for a really nice colour for the wheels. What colour is the car? Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  9. The issue is as mentioned above. Diamond cut alloys are not fit for purpose as all manufacturers suffer the same issue. You can only get them refurbished a couple of times at best so the best thing to do would be to get them powder coated or sprayed. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  10. Maybe one that's been in a slight rear end shunt and needs a few bits. Unlucky, I deal with theft on a daily basis and there really is nothing that they won't take Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  11. To be honest I have a sunglasses holder in my mazda. Thought it was a good idea until I used it and all I could hear was the glasses rattling about. Stopped using it immediately. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  12. Will be a polish. It's just full of coloured filler and is temporary at best. You would need to wax / sealant on it after but it would fail quickly. Best to just touch them up. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  13. Is it not worth looking at just getting the chips ect done with a mobile repairer? They are very good nowadays and can do localised repairs. I'd follow that up with a single stage polish with a detailer and it will be as good as new. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  14. Its awkward. Very awkward. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  15. Might be the sensor that fits in the plastic battery case. But awkward to get in. From the front of the car looking towards the battery it sits on the left. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
