    big tee. No i just put fuel in and drive it, it gets a service every 12 months and a wash once or twice a month & polish about twice a year but thats it, it's a tool so it gets used not pampered like some on here.

    After all they all blend in the same in a scrap yard.!!

    Yes, Had mine for 7yrs bought when it was 18months old.

    Change my oil & filter every 5k, wash it at least twice a wk, and polish & wax every month.

    Neighbours think im bonkers, but its my pride and joy. Not a scratch on it, and must be the shinnest flame red car on the road.

    Its garaged when not in use, and serviced by myself every yr on top of the oil change every 5k.

    So you carry on and treat it like a princess, and it will last ages.

    Same here, I've had my Sri 3 years now,spent loads on it in that time, alloys,spoiler,suspension,interior etc... I change oil and filter every 3 months, wash and polish every week or 2...if you look after your car it will look after you.. Ha ha.... In the 3 years I've had it, I have only had to change the rear discs and pads and last month a new auxilliary belt and tensioner.... Not bad for 3 years motoring
