  1. He has transformed the car. A few scratches are slightly visible etc but from where she was, to now, he's worked wonders. Lee is a perfectionist and a 100% top bloke. He's put his heart into it. Every inch is double coated ceramic. I think he will have a heart attack if I message him in 3 years to renew it, loves the car, never wants to see it again 😂 The alloys look insane and the colour match of my refurbed one is spot on! Be warned guys, not all F cars have self healing finish, mine certainly doesnt and it has been suggested to me only Sonic blue might.
  2. Thanks go to Lee for all his hard work. Looking fantastic given the condition the paint was in. Top job imho 👍
  3. Sorry, the T5 is the brand new XC60, it averages just over 30 mpg. The old bit I was referring to was our 05 RX300. Apologies for any confusion.
  4. My RCF appears to do better than both my wifes XC60 2.0 T5 and our (ok slightly old) 05 RX300. Shes costing me about £12 extra per commute (midlands to london return) than my 2.0 turbo Alfa Giulia Veloce. Worth every penny imho
  5. I had my Giulia ceramic coated from new, here she is after 1.5 years. Apparently the paint on the RCF is super soft and progress is hard 😕
  6. Seems like somebody has previously taken a polisher to my beasty and not done a good job. Shes giving Lee a hard time 🙁 Some badly touched up and sanded stone chips aswell. Reason to NOT let dealerships anywhere near your paint! Shes in the right hands though.
  7. @Big Rats former pride and joy is currently being tended to by expert hands and should be looking awesome within a few days following a paint correction and ceramic coat 😍
  8. I must admit I'm sold on the idea of a 10.25 inch screen 😍
  9. Noticed the judder for the 1st time the other day, took me back to driving my Giulia. That would judder virtually all year round. Made tight manoeuvring interesting.
  10. Check for corrosion on the Quad, wheels, wheel caps, boot lip internal welds etc Great cars, but not without issues and dealer service VERY mixed.
  11. @mr2lad has your unit rocked up yet? Where did you purchase it from? Cheers
  12. For me the RCF ticked all the boxes. When it was released I never thought I'd ever be able to own one. I dove an Audi S7, nice car but not for me. I considered a C63, but with numerous design issues (engine) and being notoriously difficult to work on, meaning big labour bills, a smaller fuel tank (plus lower mpg) and big insurance premiums I knocked that idea on the head. BMW (please nobody take offense) but not a chance. The car I really, really wanted was a facelift XKR, but it would have been older, cost the same money and had less practicality. A new Mustang was a 9 month wait, offered only small discounts and has some questionable interior plastics. The RCF is sensible in most respects, doesn't cost the earth to run, won't let me down, can be lairy when I want it to be and most importantly, it's different! I genuinely look forward to every drive and even just starting her up puts a smile on my face. I consider myself very lucky to be able to own such a car and realise its probably going to be the pinnacle of my car ownership, unless I get an LC500 in a few years, but by then we will be all electric 😔 Till then, ceramic coat to come, plus a few more upgrades maybe next year... can't wait 😍
