So another update to show you, is about the mirrors on the A1. I have been running CF ones for some years now. The work done by that guy was not the best as it seems, since through time, the fabric lifted, and got some white marks, even though the car is kept in parking at all time when not driven. However I thought i'd do something different.

So here goes.

Scrubbing with a toothpaste, wipe over and then compressed air. Then dress everything up with something to keep the plastics hydrated.
