It's the same - 'Icelandic Grey' James :-D

Well, after getting the O/S/F calliper replaced, and the front disks and pads as well, my C5 passed her MoT without advisories.

Recently I spotted that the wiper action on my C5 was of a less than optimal standard. The wipers looked like they needed to be replaced. However, I had spotted (on the Internet) mention of a piece of kit that can 'refurbish' wiper blades. Simply put, what it does is to sand off the contact edge of the wiper blade by a millimetre or so (after a few passes), giving a smooth edge without any nicks. I bought one, used it on the C5, and the action is now clean and tidy.. Today I used said device on mickeymoon's Berlingo, and I think he was satisfied with the results. This is what I am on about;

EDIT; Updated with link to similar item from another seller.

That item isn't found as the sale was over 90 days ago. What is it by description?

The fourth one down is of the type I bought. I paid something like £3.50, with free P&P.

Very surprisingly - only a couple of mins, which is about all I could stomach on a good day!

Just about my limit too. Is it mandatory in the States to have adverts that shout at people?

As I understand it, denizens of the USA have so many TVs on, all tuned to different channels, that it takes somebody shouting to get through all the noise. Unfortunately the channels have finally cottoned onto this, so now EVERY advert has SHOUTING IN IT!
