  1. Agreed - |I bought a six from TR Bitz a couple of years ago and I found the aftersales follow-up first class. Mind you, I think that as TR owners we are pretty fortunate in relation to the general good quality of TR specialists. Ernest
  2. Hi I have used Hamilton's outdoor cover or last 5 years - I have renewed after 3 years and have been very happy - very little 'rubbing'. But does allow condensation to form underneath when certain (mainly autumn and spring) weather conditions. Ernest

    Anti-freeze

    Hi all Winter coming on now and I was thinking about anti-freeze, my car has to stay outside - can anyone recommend a suitable/best antifreeze for 6s? - Car all as standard except for unleaded type head. Best Wishes Ernest

    Tyres again

    Thanks Stuart For these links and the recommendation - just hope that my local tyre fitters can obtain them. They could not get the wet-weather tyres I want to replace on my VW Campervan. Best Wishes Ernest

    Tyres again

    Thanks Tom for putting the Michelins in the mix. I am leaning towards 165s - currently on 195s. Best Wishes Ernest

    Tyres again

    Thanks all for the very helpful feedback - shame we can't 'try before we buy'! But on the other hand it looks like there are a range of tyres that will improve on what I currently have on the car. Ernest

    Tyres again

    Hi all Stimulated by recent exchange re . tyres I checked those on my 6 today and see some slight cracks in the fronts. I currently have Corsa 65 195/65s on rear and BF Goodrich 195/65s on front. The garage I use for tyres on my other cars seem to have problems obtaining some makes so - although I have seen the recommendations for Pirelli and other tyres on recent e,mails, I want to go to the garage with a range of best possible ones. So, are there any other tyres that member would recommend - I have the standard steel wheels. Best Wishes Ernest
  9. Hi Out for a run in TR yesterday - lovely! Car ran really well as usual but I noticed a slight whine that I assume is coming from the rear axle/diff. Is this normal or is it an indication of work requiring to be carried out quite soon? Any advice would be appreciated Ernest

    Car cover

    Thanks Peter I do have one of these but I was focusing on a full cover and the best way to protect the whole car, especially during the winter. Best Wishes Ernest

    Car cover

    Hi Phil Thanks for the heads-up re the 'tent-garage' - It looks good but I think it would just about completely cover my front garden!. Your comments on your own experience are reassuring - my 6 was resprayed by Rees Bros. of Aldershot and it looks to be one of very good quality. Best Wishes Ernest

    Car cover

    Blimey Mick...…..I didn't know we had a self appointed forum polizi!! I was being polite to Roger given that he is always so very helpful to members - but I am still considering the Dancover, and this due this partly due to two valuable members of the forum making the suggestion. Ernest

    Car cover

    Quite a range of options there Roger - I think I would want to inspect one of these prior to purchase but such a cover does look a possibility. Thanks Ernest

    Car cover

    Hi all I think there will have to be a 'Viking burial' with you Andrew and VUX, you both seemed to be 'joined at the hip' (or bottom!) destined not to be parted. Thanks for this interesting on-going debate re. car care - I guess I will just have to continue as now and take the cover off as much as possible. Then if/when respray required to have the car stored until the paint hardens - Would a 'wrap' be too extreme? Best Wishes Ernest
