The 'nibs' or 'spikes' serve 2 purposes during manufacture, firstly the holes the are formed in allow any air present in the mould to escape and secondly they give an indication of how full the mould was on curing, they all have to be at least 3mm long to prove that the mould was full. they then serve no purpose and will probably be worn off the first time they are 'gently brushed against a kerb!)
Technial name 'sypes'

I think you are referring to sipes (Sypes) which are the little slots in winter rubber.

Checked and current technical term is vent 'teats', personally I like them, nothing like a new set of rubber!!!

I've had Pzeros fitted with these spikes cut off obviously in the production process but with the base still visible you'll never get these rubber spikes removed totally unless you use a Stanley knife blade then you risk shaving a little off the sidewalls l have similar spikes on my factory fitted Pzero R01's on the TT

There is a specific tool for removing the 'vent teats' and this is both easy and effective, I will try to get some info, watch this space.

Is this teats,spikes or whatever they are called that bad or annoying to you guys? Can’t believe there’s a tool to remove them.
It’s one of those things that I’ve never cared too much about it or go to the extent to cut them off.

outside of a stanley blade, for which you would need a steady hand, a nail clipper would probably do the job, but as @AlS3BE says, not something I have ever really worried about or done

Good knowledge @Potterswheel - 'brushing off' the 'sypes' on a kerb isn't a technique I'll be employing (I know that's not what you were suggesting :sadlike: ). Think I'll stick the old girl back in the garage and wait for them to evaporate...

'Teats', lol - I'm definitely calling them that from now on. Nail clippers aren't a bad shout.

If 3mm indicates a full mould - then I've got some donkey's **** teats on mine :tearsofjoy:

Had a spare hour this evening, and it wasn't raining for once, so pulled her out of the garage and ticked off a couple of little jobs...

Finally got around to de-nibbing the new set of tyres. Before...

1.jpg


And after. Much better...

Then, the cheapest performance mod there is - correct tyre pressures. I do these regularly with a RING cordless lithium-ion tyre inflator. No messing about waiting in the queue at the supermarket, or plugging into the car's 12v socket - it's decent bit of kit, I use it a lot on both our cars. Recommend.

Stows nicely (in it's little case) in the gap under the front passenger seat of the S3 as well...

4.jpg


...then, as it's only been driven once since the last wash a fortnight ago, and has been tucked away in the garage since and was just a bit dusty, she had a quick tickle with the old Ken Dodd tickle stick, and a quick once over with quick detailer...

5.jpg


Before back in the garage, just in time before it started raining. Again.

She's just had her 4th birthday, and just ticked over 13k miles. She's no garage queen, I just live close to where I work, and I haven't even had to go there much this last year. Have a couple of decent road trips/weekends away planned with the boys though in the next 2 months (lockdown easing permitting), so looking forward to stretching her legs :blackrs4:

Lovely looking car and like your cordless tyre inflator but my ocd can see you need to clean your vc. Too many streaks and what looks like a paw print on the right side.

A pair of wire cutters mate - perfect for the job, stretch out the 'teat' and snip - you can get really close to the sidewall using these. I'm such a child - the word 'teat' does make me snigger :blush:

Cheers buster, don't forget the roof rails - a Sportback doesn't look right without 'em IMO - still very happy with the car after 3 years of ownership, just need to drive it more!

You're not wrong re: the Virtual Cockpit mate - it's a disgrace and you're right to pull me up on it. Will get that sorted pronto (you've shamed me into it, lol).

cracking job as always mate, that S3 looks the biz!!! Thanks to you, I have had a cordless ring on my amazon wish list for about 18 months, must pull the trigger at some point ;-)

Thanks Nev - definitely recommend the cordless RING tyre inflator, bought it in a grumpy old man rage when I was sat in a queue at the supermarket petrol station, watching a complete flute take 10 mins to do their tyre pressures while chatting away happily on their phone. So got on the phone while I was still in the queue, ordered one via Argos fast-track click and collect from the store on the same retail park and a few minutes later I was on my way home - don't miss garage forecourt tyre checks in the slightest!

As I have 4 months to wait for my car I thought I'd try some head to head wax / sealant tests on my bonnet to work out what Im going to do when it finally arrives.
First up my winter favourite Collinite 845 V's one of the new ones - 303 Graphene nano spray.

I clayed, polished and wiped down the paintwork with Bilt Hamber cleanser to give the test the best shot, both are really easy to apply but the Collinite was slightly easier to wipe off and oddly when giving the bonnet a final wipe over the side with the 303 gave more resistance to the microfibre than the other side.

Happy to report back on longevity if anyone is interested ?
I would have posted a coupe of pics but I ran out of detailing tape and ending up using some PTFE tape instead and it looked a bit noddy :)

Always good to get real world experience of longevity or otherwise of LSP. The problem with a lot of the YouTube reviews is they will tell you how easy it is to apply and doesn't it look glossy but seldom is there a follow up. Some do I know Detailing and the Beast is running updates on Turtle Wax Ceramic and Grapheme wax

I used some Fireball product l purchased a few years back it was expensive about £70 can't remember its exact name but it beads/sheets water/rain like nothing else l have come across that includes gyeon ceramic coatings but it doesn't have their durability but it does give a great glossy finish even on guff turbo blue just a pity you can't purchase Fireball products anymore in the UK

Any wax on a Red car looks the dogs mate,as you know l have the Fireball Fusion wax its actually more expensive than the Enigma...its not worth it as durability is not the best,Fireball Nano coat is far better in every way,so when mines runs out i'll be on the look out for something similar..Fireball coating wax is one of the best products l have ever used...gloss and especially beading are off the scale and perfect beading lasts about 3 weeks. or even more if applied on top of Nano Coat and Red doesnt suit that car....much prefer it in Silver Grey or Black
Fireball Nano Coat @jassyo06?

Gave the Golf its yearly deep clean this week. Used mainly used TJ’s products with A* results as always.

Full decontamination and the finished off with his ceramic wax. For ages I’ve not waxed by hand but this stuff is well worth the effort. Typically the next day the birds used the car as target practice but after using a big of QD spray it came straight off with no etching. On the bumpers I used that new graphene spray from turtle wax

Can confirm this works really well.
Best c.£15 spent for car cleaning - it’s incredible how quickly it gathers hair from boot carpet.

Spent a lot of the last two days, correcting, and then ceramic coating wife’s new Abarth 595. Nice paint to work with to be fair. Used Flex XFE-7-15 with hex green pads and Sonax perfect finish. Then used black finishing pads with Gyeon Q2 Prime ready for the coating. Coated with Gyeon Q2 Pure. Love this stuff. Nice and thick so single coat, and flashes quickly (especially outside!!) so can be wiped off without too much effort. Tomorrow onto the alloys with GTechniq C5 and will dress the tyres and protect interior.

Awesome but having owned 2 Fiats one a nice metallic blue bit like Scuba blue 2005 it was ok.... but the other was a Grande Punto Abarth 2008 was in a flat red paint.... it was guff and very high maintenance but then again Honda's Misano red was even worse same with all cars from Japan/Korea German clear coats are far more tougher

Thanks mate. Would imagine flat red could be a bit of a nightmare. Will let you know how this maintains, but so far having used Pure (your recommendation!) on a couple black car’s (which as you know are a nightmare themselves) they cleaned up pretty easily…but didn’t stay clean long . Really looking forward to
My white silver JCW for maintenance. Even contemplating getting it done by a pro, using Carbon Collective Pro Series 9H, or for extra could go Gyeon Duraflex. But I may change my mind and do it myself. Felling a little jaded having done two cars in a week (father in law’s countryman and now the Abarth).

Ouch…£900 notes. Out of interest I have got a quote from a detailer who could do my new car before collection (they work with dealer for timings etc).

£650 for usual single stage and Carbon Collective 9H Pro range, or extra £150 for Gyeon Q2 Duraflex (5 year vs 3). Considering this or doing it myself with Pure or maybe MOHS. As you say it is the time. Took advantage of the good weather this week to do the Abarth over 3 days…1st day - decon, wash, correction. 2nd day - re-wash, panel wipe, ceramic. 3rd day - alloys, tips, interior. Estimate in total I spent 10-12 hours on it, but then a tiny car . Contemplating getting a rock awning (pop up gazebo) at some point to help with shade/rain etc

Could just do bonnet and fenders one day, and gradually do the rest, but can imagine hard to motivate when you are not loving the car or colour. SO looking forward to being rid of black car (still have Cooper S that I will shift before new one arrives)

Top effort Nev - looks great, and looks like a very satisfying colour to detail!

Grabbed myself a right little bargain this week. I’m lucky enough to be able to garage the S3, but even so, once she’s been detailed and tucked back in the garage, a week later, without any use, she’ll be covered in dust, pollen and spider poop. I’ve fancied an indoor car cover for a while, but a proper fitted one can cost silly money. Found a universal fit cover from Cosmos on Amazon for £32, and thought it was worth a punt at that price. It’s ruddy fantastic! Stretchy poly-cotton with a VERY soft inside and size medium fits a 2017 Sportback like a glove. Ok, so it doesn’t fully cover the side sills at the moment, but thats only because I currently have the roof bars on. When the bars are off (99% of the time), it’ll cover the side sills. Comes with a decent little storage bag as well. Will only use when the car is 100% clean to avoid dragging dirt over the paint, but she can go a week or two without being used after a detail so this will do a job for me.

Top effort Nev - looks great, and looks like a very satisfying colour to detail!

Grabbed myself a right little bargain this week. I’m lucky enough to be able to garage the S3, but even so, once she’s been detailed and tucked back in the garage, a week later, without any use, she’ll be covered in dust, pollen and spider poop. I’ve fancied an indoor car cover for a while, but a proper fitted one can cost silly money. Found a universal fit cover from Cosmos on Amazon for £32, and thought it was worth a punt at that price. It’s ruddy fantastic! Stretchy poly-cotton with a VERY soft inside and size medium fits a 2017 Sportback like a glove. Ok, so it doesn’t fully cover the side sills at the moment, but thats only because I currently have the roof bars on. When the bars are off (99% of the time), it’ll cover the side sills. Comes with a decent little storage bag as well. Will only use when the car is 100% clean to avoid dragging dirt over the paint, but she can go a week or two without being used after a detail so this will do a job for me.
