Just see your pic. What a great picture.

Thanks mate, bit of infinity wax and then infinity Detailer and an iPhone 7 in decent light lol. I love the red in the way it can be so different in the lights. Could say that for many colours and I have mineral grey and Estoril blue which I both loved but the red has really grown on me as was not a fan a few years back.

I’ve only put sealant on my car. You have inspired me to do a fresh detail but now with wax for that glossy wet look. I think MR needs that to accentuate it’s fine metallic flec.

Cheers.

Spot on sir. I used sealant on my last BM but a ex valeter that I know said the wax and Detailer much better for the paint etc etc and you can work with it more. I am converted now lol

Just picked up my new MG m140i Shadow to replace my 16 plate VO m135i

I love the grey but I'm already missing the orange.

What are you not keen on? I've sort of got bored with mine, the opportunities to have fun with it seem to be diminishing, with the increase in speed cameras, potholes etc :(

Interesting video, I'm not sure I can even think of an argument against the comments and points raised.
