Well, I only have my 125 since 2 weeks now but the previous owner did not took very well care of washing her.

Although the car only has 8.000km's on it she is as dry as can be (never washed by hand or polished). Today I've started to give her a clay treatment followed by polish and wax starting on the bonnet and rear bumper. Tomorrow I will work my way up to the front.

So I hope by tomorriw afternoon she will be as soft as a baby again

Yesterday I dropped it off at the deal so they could check a noise coming from the auxiliary fan.
Also had them replace the lower steering wheel trim because it started to peel

Apparently there a was chunk from a pulley stuck in the fan
Hopefully I can pick her up today

The fuel light came on earlier so I lightly tapped the dash and said baby I'll get you some food later, and I did.

Yesterday took it to the dealership for a waranty covered oil change and they also fixed a squeeky rear brake by powerwashing behind the calipers for me.

I got through my break in mileage today. Took it in to have the oil changed and get it hand washed and waxed. I have been gentle during the break in time and resisted any WOT or over 4500 rpm revs. After the oil change I found out what this car is really capable of. All I can say is WOW!!! So my car had a great day today.

How are you liking the PPK1? notice much difference? I have all sorts of mods, but usually have my chip turned off, and I wouldn't mind having "off" as the PPK1

would be nice to have a little extra power and drivability over the big chips.

Power wasted it, Snow Foamed it, dried it off then used Menzerna polish 4500, Black fire wet diamond sealed and DoDo Juice Blue Velvet wax to top it off. All applied with Porter cable 7424xp.
She looks Deep.
In a week The 19" V713's wrapped in Federal 595 Evo's and the Exotics Tunning Splitters go on.

Yesterday on my way home I did something I haven't done in years....
I stalled her


Is it just me or is this car too quiet? With the windows up and the radio at a normal volume I cant hear it. There is too much sound deadening material or the exhaust isnt loud enough...lol

I think this is a good excuse to get a slightly louder exhaust
