    Time for a Spring clean.(WARNING!: JoJo's clean car content!)

    Not that I use my S3 much anyways, but since I have an afternoon free and the sun's out, might aswell give it a quick clean!

    After a quick vacuum, I finally got round to putting these S3 logo'd matts in! (Thanks Voorhees)

    Before(There's a hole in the original ones after 60k miles)


    After(they use the OEM fixing points!)


    Passenger side


    Not the same colour as the original carpets, so I only swopped the front ones, I kept the original rears in.

    Foam lance time!


    End result.




    Now I need a drink.

    That must be a magic foam lance, as your car looks dry and polished with added tyre shine in the after pic

    Looks very well. Do you have a link for the mats? They look great also.
    I find Perrier water by the litre bottle is better for the paint, less streaking. Lol

    BBS RC's, you've probably seen them on Mk4 Golf Anniversary's, the difference is, mine are 8" wide and ET32 offset, the Golf ones are 7.5" wide with a higher offset.

    Really handy for cars not washed often, softens all the crap up after 5 minutes, then jet it off and wash as normal.
