That is pretty cool!

What's with the small alloys - they look like 16's, I thought all MV6 had 17  :-\

Given they appear to match, I assume they're OEM, or by request of the police?

They're trims.  :) And as I had them on an Astra I reckon they're 15" ....  :-\

... Of course, if you owe them anything, then they won't let you close it.  :-X

It took some determination to close a Barclay's credit card account that I'd not used in years!  ??? ???

....
The cars are unimportant, as we all know what they look like. And what they need done to them....

But some cars do stand out in the crowd ... no matter what the car club/forum.  :y

Finding first instead of fifth from fourth above motorway speeds will do it :D

...

I did that is a hired Sierra many many moons ago ..... but I was looking for 3rd  ;D ;D

I had a radiator's feed & return pipework altered last year & the plumber used plastic  ??? ..... it was done by the time I came home from work. I'll get around to replacing it with copper ..... when it starts leaking!  ::)

FTFY Andy!  ;)

Probably!  ;D ;D ;D

as long as there is 1 meter of copper pipe at the boiler manifold on the flow and return ,and you keep the central heating circulating at a sensible temp (70 degrees) all should be grand  :)
so don't turn your boiler up to "ELEVEN"  :o   ;D
The radiator is probably as far from the boiler as you can get. The plastic is mostly hidden behind the couch but I know it's there & I'm not keen on the idea of plastic either  ;D

Maybe you should just man up ::)

A mask and some antibac juice will suffice...

I would be more concered about the smell of wee, boiled sweets and Olay hand cream :D

Sadly I'm old enough to remember when it was called oil of ulay. :-\ :'(

Likewise ....  ;D

And when we had Jif cleaning stuff, Marathon chocolate bar, Opal Fruits ....  ::)

Thanks guys for all your feedback :-* :-* :y :y

Take your point DG about red;  I will go for silver or black, as you suggest, probably the one from ebay suggested by Andy B :y :y

Also understand what you mean Andy W about doing a thorough job.  I have the time to do it, so will! :-* :-* :y

Thanks all again! 8) 8) :y

It wasn't me .....  ::) it was Webby  ;)

You'd be better buying Hammerite Smooth .... it'll be cheaper (& IMHO the same)

I can't see 10 mm wider being a problem

It's  strange but at times larger tyres can be cheaper than smaller tyres.

Standard fit tyres on the mighty Signum are an oddball 215mm. They are hard to source and about 30 a corner more expensive than the 225mm tyres I replaced them with.

I wasn't thinking cost .... you asked if they'd fit  ;) You just need to be aware of the rolling diameter being too far from original otherwise you'll upset the ABS etc

The 17" tyres for the 17" rims I bought for my Omega were cheaper than the original fitment 16" because they were more common  :y
