Re: Buying a late 2007 118d

Re: Noisey Alternator / Bearing

Hi mate

It could also be a worn out aux drive belt which could be making the noise and/or one of the idlers so would be worth checking out.

Re: Waxes, Sealants and Hybrids

Very informative James, thank you very much. I have always used AutoGlym Ultra Deep Shine for my car.
I want to try this C2v3 Liquid Crystal and would you say to use that first then apply my wax/polish after?

Thank you in advance.
