Finally got a chance to try out my new Pinnacle products.

Pretty happy for a first attempt. Oh, and the bars look better on a shiny treg, too!









Pinnacle Souveran wax supplied by Motorgeek.

About four hours in all, including inside, wheels, tyres etc.

Conditioning and waxing the bodywork probably took 1.5 hours.

Needs a good sealant on top, in my opinion. But I don't have any to hand.

Jeez.

you know what us women are like.
It's our job to come in and say "look you've missed a bit"
Think I will need to buy some of that polish for Allan to try certainly makes the car look top dollar.

Just been looking back at some of the older pics of my current treg (sad, I know).

This was the car on the day of delivery:



And this was taken today:



OK, so the light is somewhat different. But it really looks to me like the new wax makes the car look even better than 'new'...?

Maybe it's just my eyes....

Tints and bars definitely an improvement tho!

Looking stunning....and I agree that it looks a deeper blue today than before.

One question...who did the tints, and how much??

(Actually, that's 2 questions
)

A local fitter in Swindon did the tints. Did an OK job, but left some minor scuffs on the paintwork and window trims which I had to buff out.

But then, it only cost ?300.

Pentagon in Reading did my previous tints, which were better, but also ?250 more.

I have a very light tint on the fronts, a mid-tint on the back doors and then a darker tint on the rear quarters and hatch. The rear doors look a little darker now that we have sun blinds fitted for the baby boy.

PM if you want the Swindon fitter's details.

It might sound a lame question but are they T.U.V approved?

I can't see how they are secured in your pics but if you use the roof bars to hold a heavy roof box like wot I do, then you need to be sure its secure.

To be honest, I think there is little to choose between the long bars or the cross bars when it comes to appearance.

Some chod asked what the difference is in fuel consumption...if you have to worry about that while driving a brick around, then you have a budget problem!

They're OEM Porsche units, so can't imagine they're not TUV-approved.

3 heavy bolts each side. I've put my full weight on them to test and they don't budge.
