    what have you done to your car today ?

    No, I tend to drive fairly steady on the motorway anyway. I get about 50 going to work and 65 coming home and none of that's motorway. (More down hill on the way home).

    Think you have to leave it in auto too.

    Front LEDs and Bi-Xenon lights

    I have full LED's on my Leon, they're a class above anything I've ever had before. If you drive at night even semi regularly, you should get them.

    eBay cable and software?

    Yeah you need a VCDS 12.12 cable. Look to make sure software is included. They're usually about £10-20 +/- P&P. Just read the sellers feedback and take a punt. That's all I did. :)and don't expect it sooner than a month. Don't waste your time with fast shipping because it's not fast at all. X

    I got mine from Ali express, I haven't got the link, sorry. And yes, I googled the software and eventually found and downloaded it.

    Real World MPG - post your figures

    I use individual with the steering set to normal and engine to sport. And yep, now I've got a live and average MPG readout it's started to become a competition to beat myself each tank!!

    I find it easier and less frustrating to drive economically in sport mode. :)

    Number plates

    BMW Styling on eBay. Mine are definitely retro reflective/road legal and they laser cut the name/post code/BASU number on the bottom so it's far less visible.

    Real World MPG - post your figures

    I actually prefer sport throttle and normal steering. The sport steering seems needlessly heavy for my driving style.

    parking dinks

    I'd wait until the other half was back from work then go. They're at the front because families but more food than singles and convenience makes it more likely that they'll use the shop with spaces closest to the door.

    parking dinks

    Leave the kids at home, rather than dragging them to the supermarket, annoying everyone else in the process. There never used to be parent and child spaces, and I always managed to get in the car and put my own seatbelt on..

    parking dinks

    Why do children require extra wide spaces in the first place?

    parking dinks

    Why should someone with a child get an extra wide space next to the door? I want one to protect my car from idiots. I'd happily take an extra wide space at the other end of the car park if they were provided. I have no problem walking, I have a problem with my car getting damaged when I go to...

    I think there are age restrictions to use them officially!!

    parking dinks

    My parking priority is usually 1. Parent and child bay (sorry they chose to have children, they're not disabled). 2. Take 2 spaces. 3. Park next to a very shiny, far more expensive vehicle because they are usually looked after (never a mucky expensive vehicle though). 4. Corner/edge spot (half...

    move over polish, welcome carnauba wax

    I go with sealant for two reasons: durability and I have a metallic white car so reflections are poor at the best of times. Sealant gives more than wax.
