Used Pela 6000 to do my first oil change using extraction method. If the technique is good enough for MB main dealerships, then why scramble around on my back removing undertrays?! Managed to extract 6.5l in 20mins or less.
Even if it leaves an amount of old oil - the ease of the job means that it can be done more regularly. Also there’s always going to be some old oil left in whichever method. Overall v pleased with the new method.
Also broke a clip on dash trying to find a mischievous rattle… great. Car due for passenger airbag recall swap out so hopefully the disassembly and reassembly will sort the rattle.

Washed the sahara dust that had collected on the car after the last shower:doh:
This is what you can expect if you buy a black or dark coloured car.
That is without cleaning off the incessant bird crap deposited on the car every day.

When did that fall, all we have had is constant sunshine and a temperature of 22° :)

Nothing today, but I have spent 4 days cleaning, polishing and checking things on it since we picked it up on Tuesday lunchtime.

Actually I lied; I took the wonky back numberplate off again to check the thread size on the original three remaining Rivnuts.

Might finish off the DA polishing tomorrow as I've still got the bonnet and roof left to do, but it's looking good so far:
