Just a random thought and almost certainly not original but are we on the cusp of seeing manual transmissions start a long decline and, to be fair, CVT's and conventional automatics?

You are correct,  certain car makers have dropped manual transmissions, Mercedes for one,  but nothing to boast about for transmission innovation, just the same old "slushmatic" torque convertors and complex  multi-speed epicyclic gearboxes they have been using for decades, just a bit more sophistication in the control electronics  and so many gears the vehicle struggles to decide which gear to be in , at least that is my impression when I ride in a Mercedes taxi,  When I work book me a  taxi I'm happier when a Prius arrives

I've just found a site called www.auto-date.net that shows the 1.3 engine changing from multi-point indirect injection to direct injection in the 2017 facelift, not sure if it's correct ?

I've tried the same technique with the sugar soap but not with the same success. Must be the sugar soap I used. Just Tesco's.

Fitted Michelin All Seasons tyres to Jazz there years and 18k miles ago.
Not much difference in summer grip (had Michelin Energy Savers) but excellent in snow and mud..I go along single track roads a lot and passing places are so muddy that 4x4s with summer tyres get stuck..

Only very noisy on a few roads with corrugations: have to slow down as noise was painful.

I expect to see 50k miles from a set (Michelin Enery lasted 30k miles)

I have just read this:

https://www.fleetnews.co.uk/news/fleet-industry-news/2021/05/18/more-than-a-thousand-stolen-catalytic-converters-recovered

"Over a five-day period last month, officers and partner agencies made 56 arrests, visited 926 sites, stopped 664 vehicles, recovered 1,037 stolen catalytic converters and 297 items of stolen property; and identified 244 offences."

Good to read some action being taken against this problem. I'm sure it's the tip of the iceberg, but good news nonetheless. :D

CAT burglars always been a nuisance ----

For the outside glass, especially windscreen,   https://www.travisperkins.co.uk/cleaners-and-wipes/4trade-sugar-soap-solution-500ml/p/844597

Went into Travis Perkins for some CT-1 sealant and saw it, thought I would use it on shower screen, worked so well I tried it on windscreen of car, used one of those washing up sponges ( the white non-abrasive ones not the green or brown type which can scratch steel ). Scrub on with damp spongy thingy,  it makes a foam, leave foam for 5 minutes and wash off with watering can or hose.   Decorators use sugar soap to clean down older paintwork before repainting, gets all the old Mr Sheen wax and nicotine stains off..

Not really, because it's rather padded.

Sure, yes. I would like to modify the tilt system to get it more straight, but I didn't find the way to get into the mechanism.
This could help.

The outside of the windows get cleaned after every wash, but I never seem to get round to doing the inside. Makes such a difference.

I give the Carplan stuff a nod because it is at a bargain basement price but delivers good results.

The problem with so many products on the market, is finding good stuff. I've bought the odd expensive product in the past, only to be disappointed. Interesting to read your suggestions.  :D
