I like that colour of machine. They always seem to turn out well and sell well too.

Looks well.  :icon_nod:

The "i" is independent. It is called Independent because the Dyson "i" models were sold by independent retailers, for example DC07i as a Curry's exclusive Dyson model
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Very nice! I have one of those to put together at the weekend, although mine is stickered up as a Full Gear, whatever that meant!

It means some extra tools came with it originally I think.

A good clean with fairy liquid and a good spray off the cheapest furniture polish that sainsbury or morrisons sell then a good buff up. :thumbsup:
