Hello!

Postby buchaille » Fri Nov 09, 2007 8:14 pm

Hello comrades!

Just bought an '05 1.8 Icon today - my fiance thinks its a birthday pressie for her but since I drove it this morning ITS MINE!! Mwwwwaaaahhhhaaaa!!!

Seriously though, it seems like an amazing wee car, we are both hooked now. Driving a 2 tonne Pajero and an old Merc C180 seriously underprepared me for how much fun could be had on 4 wheels.

Anyone have any suggestions as to how we can clean the soft top and keep it in top nick?? Is there a link somewhere on this forum?

Cheers guys.

buchaille :D

Hi enjoy it (if you can get it back)

Which one is it? choice of 4 colours and 2 engines

If it is a cloth hood it will need a shampoo and waterproof

Autoglym do a kit

Will need to invest in a cleaning kit then, want to keep it tip top and dont have a garage.

That old saying:

"A 5s for life not just November/xmas/sping/summer/winter/etc" springs to mind; best fun you can have that's not on 2 legs :wink:
A 5 in a garage is safe, but that is not what 5s are built for ...........is it?

Congratulations. You will likely end up having two like us...I tired somewhat of losing fingers when picking up Mrs's car keys.

If your excited about your new car before you get it,
and...
after you get it you find yourself parking it where you can look out the window at it from the house or your work.
Then...
You have bought more than a car, you've just bought a change of life. :D

And Linda (Mrs DouglasH) will agree to that!

The partners of we AC's have to have a patient, tolerant streak built in.

Welcome to the forum Buchaille!

Welcome, you will enjoy the car tremendously.

Colin: re: The partners of we AC's have to have a patient, tolerant streak built in.

May I tell Linda B that it is compulsory, and that you said it?
