    After much debate and consideration Mrs Moggy finally decided on what she wanted, so the search began. Finally all the main boxes were ticked by an advert from Douglas Park in Glasgow so a quick phone call saw us agreeing to head up there on the saturday to show them the trade in (Fiesta Ecoboost 1ltr) and test the new motor. Deal done, and it was back on the tuesday to collect and bring it back, dropping it straight in for some detailing work.
    We asked for them not to wash it, so there was a bit of muck and quite a bit of fallout on it, but it didn't take much work to get it looking like it should do, along with a few cosmetic touches (thanks to Ed @Cotswold BMW for the grills and rubber mats) then coated with gtechniq crystal serum ultra . So here it is, my other 2 series :)

    Plans for this already in the pipeline are:
    Fit the F770 dashcam that I took out of the Fiesta
    Install an Autowatch Ghost security system
    Install a heated steering wheel
    Enjoy the mpg when we go away as it gets about twice what my M235i does :)

    You detail your car to within an inch of its life.... then let the cat sit in it....

    Hes very good, he only scratches at three locations where he is encouraged to. I wouldn't if I thought he might start using it as a scratching post
    Thanks Kev

    the car looks great, I am not a big fan of orange but that example looks nice

    I am another one that would have to ban the cat from the car after all that detailing work, Sorry Moggy

    I wasnt a fan of the orange when she first mentioned it, but its growing on me.
    Dont apologise, I know how it must look, but hes very good. I was sitting in the car in shorts and he jumped up on my lap from the drive, no claws in the leg etc. we dont leave him in unsupervised, and he doesnt go in often, but when he does he usually has a quick look then goes to sleep.

    I was apologising to Preston for banning him from the car :)

    I have seen some some very nice M cars in the Sakhir orange but i am not sure i could ever go with the orange but still think they look good

    Typical, two ways of reading it and I go for the wrong one :)
    I still very much prefer the mineral grey but its not bad

    I said in another tread recently that i had 2013 120D coupe as a loner for a week, it was pretty much a new car with 300 miles on the clock and it was a very nice fun car to drive and i loved every minute of driving it and used to come home from work and take it out for a spin just for the sake of it, and i am somebody that always likes big car with the likes of mondeo,s the E 60 and now the tank that is the 5GT but i loved the 120D coupe which became the 220D coupe

    I drove a 120 mile round trip in the 120D coupe to buy a two new wash buckets from wickes so it shows how much i liked driving

    I also like the colour of your car it does look very good (y), I have just shown your pictures to the missus to see what she said and she has gone all Gansta on me saying that would look nice in Black with black wheels now i wasn't expecting that, she also loved the 120D coupe we had and if we ever needed a second car the 220D coupe would be high on the list

    As Preston likes to sit on the arm rest in all the madmoggy fleet then maybe we are being a bit hard on him banning him from his favourite perch, I am allergic to cats and if i had to share a car with Preston i would be sneezing and rubbing my eyes within five minutes so i find it very hard to share my space with cats
