It’s odd stuff, on plastics you see an immediate effect, but on paintwork it’s quite unimpressive when it first goes on. But as it dries it developes its gloss. I gave it a buffing once dry too. There are better products out there no doubt, but what I like about this is it takes very little effort to us, which I’ve no doubt the majority of us will appreciate
Pretty pleased with the result, its superb on the plastic trim
Got a break in the weather so broke out the Carplan No.1 Super Gloss that I picked up recently …
Ok, so I decided it was about time to give our MY21 R Design some i.d. I wanted something subtle but smart, and favoured the inside over the outside, and so opted for this …
Don’t think he was entitled to park there so some folks took it upon themselves to let him know 😂

Well that link doesn’t seem to work, but this video is well worth a watch. So let’s have another go …..
I’m sure we’ve all felt like Kate Moss at some point, but even Santa can’t work miracles 😉😆
We live in N Wales and would have to use Rybrook in Chester.
There are other options. You have Tyn Lon on Angelsey, or take a jaunt into england. Ours was supplied by Holdcroft at Stoke, excellent service.
And look better too
We’ll happily run this for 5 years, pip permitting.
I like the fact that it tells me the speed limits on the road i’m on, and gives a speed camera warning a good way in advance.
As far as the mood lighting goes, I wouldn’t know how many led’s are in there, there’s a noticeable difference between the high and low settings. The thing I’m a bit puzzled about is that there’s a bunch of colours to choose from, but I’m not really seeing any difference between them, that said I am colour blind, so it could well just be my shonky eyes 😳.
It’s in the dash, doors, footwell, and centre console.
A world apart from the XC60 we tried in 2016, Volvo have come on a hell of a lot in just 4 years.
Hi Eleanorsvoice, you managed to get any kind of deal offered?
What really surprised me about the XC40 is that when I test drove an XC60 4 years ago I wanted to love it but actually I hated it, couldn’t get comfy in it, and of course the tech was very much of the time.
The XC40, although a smaller SUV, is so much more improved. Makes me wonder how good a modern day XC60 would be, the seats certainly look to be a huge improvement on the old model.
Well done sir, it’s a tremendous motor

Interesting you ask, we had a look at the Rav 4, I kinda liked it, but for the tail lights. I did wonder whether the centre console would irritate my left leg over time. Ultimately Mrs Mac didn’t like it so never got it out on the road.
Mrs Mac has the Sportage very much in the ugly box, so that never got going.
We did take a Honda CRV out for a spin, it was a hybrid. Very expensive for what it is. Great for size but just dull for me, no enjoyment factor really.
I would have been interested in a Subaru Forester if they had rejoined the scheme, but as much as Subaru want back on, it just ain’t happened.
We have been very happy with how Holdcroft treats its customers hence we were keen to stay with the group if a deal was possible. I’m pleased to say they played the game.
I pointed out that their group supplied our current Santa Fe, have maintained it, it’s got almost 18k on the clock, just sailed through its 2nd MOT, and just had its 4 year service, and they could see it’s in superb condition.
As they get first crack at buying it then theres a tidy profit in that car. We took it from their Chesire Oaks Hyundai dealership, but their Stoke Hyundai dealership is literally just across the road from their Stoke Volvo dealership, and I think they could see the possibilities there. The Stoke dealership is over an hour away from us and I wasn’t shy of pointing out that I’d driven past two Rybrook dealerships to go to Stoke. We also went in on the last day of the month 😉
I would definitely encourage you to contact Synter’s Volvo dealership and make it clear that you are keen to travel and continue a positive relationship if the right deal can be agreed in return for your loyalty.
See how you get on, theres nothing to lose fella. Worst they can say is “no can do”, but if they value loyalty then there just may be a deal to be had.
Volvo have definitely made a good call on putting that facility in place
A 4 day test drive facility, who wouldn’t appreciate that eh?
