  • Big winter clean + *pics*

    Me and a mate decided there was way too much salt on our cars and mine hadnt been cleaned for 2-3 months so we gave the cars a clean.

    Because i had left my car so long between cleans the wheels were really bad and the Z4 was really really bad.







    cars were then soaked with snow foam for a long time including under all the arches. rinsed and then dryed.




    My car has about 8 layers of collonite and so i really couldnt be bothered to do anymore waxing!




    Oh and gave the interior a little clean too



    Once finished we both went for a drive & i have to say, the beemer is almost exactly the same on acceleration as the VXR which i was pretty suprised with considering its 270+ bhp and mine is completely standard. We then swapped cars for a bit and apparently the astra is pretty scary!

    Anyway, sorry for boring anyone!

      To be honest i think this is a testament to a detailed car or protected lets say because really you shouldnt even need to rewax with that amount of collonite on and the afters shows what a wash and quick detail can do , looks fantastic..

          I know what you mean. Ive done that much porep work now with my VXR and thanks to your advice have a decent routine going so i can literially wash and dry and it looks like new each time. However i still tend to add a layer a wax etc every now and then to keep it topped up.

          Oh, both cars look fantastic btw.

              thanks very much! tbh its only because of you and your detailing expertise i know about anything like snow foam or collonite! Its very true though... a quick snow foam and nice gentle wash with a good mitt, rinse and it looks very very clean!

                            Very easy, well i think it is, the better quality carnuba wax you get the easier i find it is to apply and buff of. Go for some Petes 53 or 50/50 Carnuba wax.
