In 30 years of car ownership, I've never dressed a car's tyres.... but half tempted now! :)

Be careful which products you use as some with prolonged use can actively degrade the tyre.

2 extra questions, I should have answered the first myself when I went to the dealers but I forgot :blush:

Is there actually a gutter over the doors, like in The Olden Days, to stop water flooding in when you open them, or is it just an overhang?

What is it like reversing at night with the gangsta windows? My Renault Nissan has them and I can't see a thing going backwards in the dark- I even checked that the reverse lamps actually came on :whistle:

hi fit a couple of led reverse bulbs works a treat

Hi Gadget,

Did your Jim come with the nice mod grill already attached then or?

Thx.

Andy - I ordered the grill and other accessories via the dealer a couple of weeks before collection. They fitted them before I picked it up.

Well that's ok then!
I only mentioned this because I've heard of garages taking stuff off and actually not leaving it with the car/owner!

Any favourable comparison with a 2CV has got my attention! Bought my yellow '79 2CV6 for Fifty Pounds in Jersey ('87) and sold 4 years later in WA for $8,000. That $8k, is now worth $16k in today's money. I guess I'm really half way there for a new Jimny already.

Now where to order a matching cardigan with leather buttons and patches on the elbows?

I passed my driving test in my dad's 2CV. He had it for almost 30 years before he sold it. Loved that car. New Jimny is the best bits of a 2CV and Series Land-Rover (which was my first car) squished together.

Great review, thank you. I ordered the manual version, same colour - can't wait. Is anyone aware of a reverse (back) parking sensors available as a factory option? I was only offered a tow bar and two tone paint. Thanks.
