Re: Dark grey 480

:D reminds me of the time I took out my 480 after it being off the road all winter. I'm waiting to pull out on to the A41 and what comes along??? A red 480 - we drove together waving and passengers taking pics all the way to town. It's bonkers!

Re: Dark grey 480

Ha! No worries Monkeysox, I figured you saw me too late, I doubt there are any 480 owners out there left who wouldn't react to seeing another wedge on the road. Funny though because I literally just said this afternoon that I always hoped to be spotted but never do! Today was a lucky day for us both...

Re: My Storage tips

My 480 stands for months at a time usually, so no different for it during these times, I just disconnect the battery, that is all. Never have any issues. Always runs and starts like it was run the day before :D

Re: out of hibernation for a while.

It's crazy, but since having my whole underside cleaned up and treated with POR15 - probably the best thing you can use - I have been more precious about taking my 480 out in winter! But honestly, after a jet wash to the under side all the crap just washes away and it looks beautiful again. I would ...

Re: out of hibernation for a while.

It's a long story Jeff, I won't go into it!! :lol:

As for the heated seats, I have actually never tried them and a fear trying them to be disappointed when they don't work! Maybe I will try them,I don't much care for heated seats so I won't really care if they don't come on :hopping:

out of hibernation for a while.

My 480 is making an unusual venture out in winter this week while my C30 is having her headlights split and painted. Dropped off the C30's headlights to first drop off in a relay up the country to get them to Newcastle. Ice everywhere, closed roads and now a stone chip in my windscreen :cry: but it ...
