You can get the Meguiars on Fleabay or locally, Halfords. It's @ £11 - £15 depending where you get it from. I tend to apply quite regularly, but I think you should find it stays pretty effective for the duration between washes.

Crackin look on ur wheels DK, I notice ur alloy wheel badges are mint too, are these the 60mm size for 19's thinking of ordering a set from amazon.

To be honest, I’ve never checked the size, they came with the car. I will try to measure them when I can :eusa-think:

Check eBay there are original ones 60mm for these alloys Peugeot offer two options for this wheel one is full plastic the other is plastic with an alloy cover these are the ones that the lacquer finish fails but they are the more expensive.

How are you finding the Nexen tyres?
I had them on my 508 GT and thought they were pretty good.

Only had a test drive for 15 mins m8, as I don't pick up the car from garage until Sat, although I didn't hold back on test drive and I felt they gripped corners well and as its Glasgow it was raining.

Garage refurbished wheels as two were kerbed and 2 were flaking and rusting a wee bit, renewed all the rubber too but he never told me the price ? Could u tell me as I don't know, I only know the wheels were 80 quid a corner. :thumbup:

When I bought 4 last August they were £97 each for 235 40 19. The same size as RCZs take.
I was more than happy with them on my 508. They wore well and performed more than adequately with 200 BHP and 340ftlb of torque through them.

Cheerz for that that's good to know, I only do 4000 miles a year so I should get a few yrs outta them and the fact they were refurbished was another wee job I didn't have to do... :clap: Just cant wait to get in her and try them out on a nice long drive.
