Gearing myself up for this afternoon's Grand Prix, (excuse the pun!), in Abu Dhabi. It has been such an exciting season with the new points system, a rollercoaster ride with the leader board changing every race.

Let's end the season with a bang.......Here are my predictions of the outcome of todays race:

P1. Lewis Hamilton

P2. Jenson Button

P3. Nico Rosberg

Sebastien Vettel - DNF

Fernando Alonso - DNF

Mark Webber - DNF

Ha ha ha ha, of course my predictions are in a perfect world and based solely on how I like to see it.......would be nice, lol, but then, stranger things have happened!

Whatever the outcome, wishing our boys the best of luck, and roll on next season...I for one can't wait!!!!!

My BMW headlights have been suffering UV ray damage for a long time, the lenses were white & cloudy, making nighttime driving a nightmare, plus they looked awful. I tried almost every garage in the area, all of which told me there was nothing I could do except change the headlights, a very costly operation! I looked on the internet, found certain products & advice all of which failed & the problem got worse. In France, where I live, you cannot get replcement lense covers, and to have them shipped was costly too.

But then one day whilst out driving, some kind of bug hit one of the headlights and left a clear patch. When I felt it it felt greasy.........I had an idea!!! When I got home, I rubbed some cooking oil, YES YOU READ RIGHT ORDINARY HOUSEHOLD COOKING OIL, on to the headlights with a cloth and PRESTO!!!! It worked....I couldn't believe it, they are now shiny & look like new, and it didn't cost me a thing!! And because of the layer of grease it protects against further damage. A few days later they are still shiny & clear, maybe I'll have to put on some more oil if it rains, but hey, it's far cheaper and easier than having to replace them.

If you have a UV ray headlight damage problem, I recommend you try my idea & see for yourself!! Good luck!

PS. Not sure if certain headlight covers have a preference to which kind of cooking oil but I used sunflower seed oil!!
