    Hi cheechy. Have you a recommended product? Cannot see anything on ebay as a stand-alone products (not part of a restoration kit). Some international sellers are selling UV film but are these legal (and many are tinted).

    Edit. Another search finds Meguiar's Headlight Protectant 296ml on ebay for 12.03 including postage.

    Fuel Consumption for 1.4 TDi 75 SE: <sorry deleted - will try to reinstate>
    Mostly A(T), A or B roads.
    Was 62.5 mpg with Pilot Primacy Michelins 185/50/16 18V
    Then 58 mpg with Pirrelli P6000 Powergy but they are much quieter.
    Next 62 mpg after 5th gear change to 0.65 (Skipton) & remap of +20 bhp (Stealth) on a 4,000 mile European trip.
    Now Toyo Proxes T1R - also quiet.
    Changed matt black slatted grill for the glossy black smooth grill.

    Uv protection is via any ESC or sealant really but the key is really ensuring you keep it topped up regularly just like the bodywork.
