    It's had a go over of raceglaze signature 55 wax. Is there a coating you recommend?

    Only took 15 minutes to get on the Mrs nerves about it :D

    If I was going to the trouble of correction, it's worth the extra to go a ceramic via your detailer. Probably a few hundred on top/it will be various options from them, personally I have had Gyeon MOHS on my last 2 cars including the 63 , which was Obsidian like yours ...

    Ah wow that looks SO shiny.

    We did discuss briefly but I told him I'm having some of the paint looked at (likely both sides will have some smart fixes in places and lacquered over entirely.) So will be inviting him back once that is done to ceramic coat the fresh lacquer.

    Looks really amazing, bet you're well pleased with the result, especially at that price. Who detailed it?

    I feel like this too but there's a problem. It's only by playing with the buttons that we find out what they do. Either that or RTFM & nobody enjoys doing that. I've read mine cover to cover several times but only really learn from prodding.

    Lol, I played with the buttons not long after I bought the car too, and set the winter speed limiter to 130. Couldn't understand why the car died at that speed. Had it on the dyno too and no faults showed :confused: AMF finally got to the bottom of my intermittent performance issue, but had nothing to do with the speed limit being set by me :rolleyes: I have learn't my lesson, speed limiter set to 'OFF' :D
