  • Cleaning the VXR - for normal people

    There have been a few threads regarding keeping the beloved vxr in concours condition, involving spending 4 hours, 3 times a week.

    For the rest of us (maybe its just me), I want to give the car a clean with the Karcher jet washer about once a week (ish) and then give here a wax once a month. And do all this on products that don't cost the earth. although I would like to use good quality, ie not own branch fairy liquid from Wilko's or poundland.

    So what prducts do you fine people recommend, bearing in mind its a jet washer I'll be using.

    Ta all.
