looking good mate, what tyre dressing do you use

Turtle Wax "Wet'n Black" As it is a spray, I have a piece of sponge cut to the width of the side wall and spray it directly onto the sponge, then just smeere it round, that way no overspray goes on the alloy[:D]Just make sure you wear some gloves....you will end up with black stuff round your nails and on the fingers, it takes about a week to come off your hands and about a fortnight for the wheels!!!

Kev are you talking about this picture -

If so, there shouldn't be a bolt in there or so I've been told. Apparently a bolt is screwed in here to release the tension for cambelt (?) removal?

Anyone know for sure?

Firstly, The "missing" screw....is not missing as you said, I noticed it one day when I was filling with oil. As previously mentioned, apparently it is for tensioning, I only thought it was missing because the hole is threaded.

Secondly: The blue was tints which I had..up until February till I queried my insurance company about them and asked their position. They said that they do not cover any car with tints (and the "law" is that you should have no less then 70% for side windows. The blue tints only come in 35%, so 100%-Manufacturers tint(say 5%)less 35% for my blue tint only allowed 60% light through (therefore illegal and car not insured)Thought that this was too BIG a financial risk to be taking!!!!

Personally, I would have the tints tomorrow if it were legal, but as you said, people have their own tastes, I just felt it stood out more than the "standard" R32 or ones with the traditional black.
