    Ceramic coating paintwork?

    I tried a couple of the abundant cheap Chinese specials a while back 9H MrFix etc for a starter and they do seem to have done something I've not really paid too much attention to it and it's hard not to be psychosomatic over it but it does appear to be very hydrophobic, much better than wax at a comparable price appearing to be easier to clean and slightly shinier I don't know what the active ingredient s are but I assume either something similar or just a much cheaper version maybe like rain x or something, anyway applied it myself pretty quickly and easily, not half as shiny or magical as claimed unsurprisingly and I don't know how long it may last but would use again instead of wax as it does seem quite protective or upgrade to a proper ceramic so it's interesting to hear about some of the proper brands and how shiny/glossy they appear and whether you've all applied them yourselves and what they've cost?

    Maintenance costs against age/mileage trade offs

    Cheers for your input G yeah brakes is usually a good bartering opportunity for a cheap diy upgrade.. What about tips on spotting a modern oil burner particularly on pre-facelifts?
  9. Bit of a general discussion one this one I'm just curious to pick other more superior opinions on here!! What sort of mileage/ and/or age do people find maintenance type costs rise on celicas/Toyotas/generally? Backdrop: was playing with the idea of also trying to pickup a cheap preface mk3 mr2 post summer to play with too but interested in people's opinions generally I've had v high milers some with motorway in the past trouble and corrosion free till scrapped and some lower milers but not quite perfect, my own gen 7 s gone 120-140k with me with not a huge history and I've just had the usual common things rectified (tho thinking a clutch change can't be far away) What sort of things do people particularly look for on high milers/older cars? PS.apols not posted for a while been busy but still reading.

    Write Off Valuation

    What's the story and valuation of it Tiddles, not that experienced in this recently but didn't it use to be argue the toss and negotiate with them on their valuation of it eg FSH, any pictures/condition, bills, ccuk membership etc similar car ads, and hopefully accept their 3rd elevated offer?
