I buy mine from Vauxhall, their tradeclub stuff, not optiplex.

This time of year it goes in neat so i can keep the screen clear even wehn very cold outside.  Should be down to -20 iirc

Always seems to be £10 a box of 4x5 litre
I shall ring the dealer this week, see what he has :y.  I wasn't aware there was a TC one.

I've tried both and Opticlean is so much better - cheap on TC
I have used Opticlean for years, seemed cheap enough Trade Club. As said earlier, I was charged £20 for 1 5 litre bottle of Opticlean at Bellingers |Grove, who used to be my handy Trade Club supplier in my Senator days. Are you sure it is £10 for 4X5 litres?

Mine do 2, Opticlean, or tradeclub screenwash, didnt go into the garage today to grab a bottle, will try tomorrow

General Car Chat / Re: DPF regen

Personally I always drive until the regen is complete.
I find it fairly obvious when its happening, but I know others think theirs has never done one!

Mine has a great habit of starting a regen after 30 miles, when I am now 2 from home, leaving me to drive in circles for a couple of minutes until it finishes.
It normally manages this after a night shift when I just want to go to bed
Law of the sod is alive and well!

General Car Chat / Re: Bmw run flat tyres
« on: 04 February 2018, 18:25:11 »
Ive heard of people being refused an AA / RAC visit for  puncture if youve removed them.  Dont get it myself as you dont pay a reduced premium for having run flats
But you don't have a spare to go on...

Exactly, they say you shouldnt have needed one.
But with RFT, the owner should be able to get to nearest tyre place in event of puncture. So if fitting non RFT tyres to RFT car, you will always be stranded in case of puncture. So the AA/RAC etc are quite within their rights to refuse (to attend for free) IMHO ;)

My point exactly....making the OP aware of a potential issue if he no longer has run flats.

(but should they be able to refuse given they dont do feature based pricing, its one size fits all, is another question all together)
