  2. Club logos appeared today. Nice touch with member name built in. Had to come in for a coffee to settle my nerves, as could hardly hold onto the steering wheel, that much speed now in 'er, since fitting those stickers!

  3. Answering this on the basis/assumption that this is just the foam that is contaminated . . . Have you tried using the 'Swarfega' hand cleaner? As this is specifically designed to remove oil/grease from your hands then I would expect it to be OK for the foam.Try a small area first though. I use it to remove oil/grease from Cotton/Linen fabrics without damage.To get the best use you need to rub /massage the Swarfega into the item then leave it for 2-3 hours to do it's work.Wash out with warm soapy water ( i use the green blocks of household soap for this). I accept that there is a smell to the Swarfega, however this is removed when washed with the soapy water, just repeat if the odour is still there. You may have to repeat the process to get all the oil out but it will get it. Most import thing is to massage the swarfega in and LEAVE IT to work on the oil, if you just wash immediatley it will not work. Last point to mention is try to avoid getting swarfega on the leather as it will happily remove all the 'good oils/waxes' from the leather.If it gets on the leather just wipe it off asap and apply leather balm etc. I suggest you only use Swarfega, would avoid the other cheaper/unknown brands. Hope this helps with the problem

  4. One of thhe best things for absorbing odours is sodium bicarbonat (Baking Soda). Usually this is sprinkled on fairly liberally, worked into the item gently (maybe with a soft brush) and left overnight. Then vacuum it up. May need a couple of repeats. Has the oil staining come through the leather to the front surface? I also googled 'How to remove smell of engine oil' and a number of products came up - including the Dr Beckmann Stain Devils range. They have one for Lubricant & Grease and another for Odour Remover. Also one called StressNoMore professional strength for dried in stains and Odour Destroyer (although I have not heard of this one). Only other option is to ask an upholsterer or car trimmers for their opinion.

  6. Just my 10p worth, as seeing the same chat on the mx5 forum. e10 was brought out in Japan in 1998, so I think it's safe to assume, any jap built car from 1998 on will be perfectly grand! Saying that, I've noticed that my 2004 svt mx5 defintely gets more to the gallon on the e5 super, than the new e10 95 octane!
