Sounds as though you are happy with your ‘new' car, I am really, pleased with mine. You asked if anyone has any good hints or tips, the best tip I can give is to read through all of the past postings on the club forum, even if it is not about your model.
I bought my car in December so it wasn't too difficult to remain indoors and read them. Perhaps it could be something to do on a rainy day.
Thanks to the great folks who take the trouble to contribute to this forum, I have found out about a lot of things; from explanations as to how things work – or don't, because they are not fitted to my car, to where to find and buy the bits and pieces that we all like to add.
