    I use either a dilute solution of Megs APC or Race Glaze Alcantara cleaner... and Race Glaze leather balm... plus of course the usual debobbler

    Think il give that Race Glaze a shot iv heard a few people go on about it and I'm running low on my foaming stuff, it also always makes me edgy wetting my seats in case they go wrong.

    Karl is that exhaust lube on your fingers lol.

    Cheers Andy I still have bits to clean on it lol, and yeah I agree the Disklock wont stop anyone but its just another visual aid to help deter people. If they want your car they will take it whatever you do I just feel every little helps that's all.

    Goin to get cracking on the car at 8am tomorrow as I'm off work. It's going to be a hard slog to get it clayed, polished, and interior done, then packed and up to the campsite for 17:30

    Anyway, a few pics.



    After a wash she was back in the garage and dried:



    Wheels off:



    Calipers cleaned:



    Oh look a grey wheel, not black!



    All together. Will tyre shine tomorrow too.

    Westy how comes you've got TT alloys not orginal S3? pal.

    Hoping mine will get washed today (a.k.a I hope it rains). Not too fussed really, just as long as no one starts telling me how long they spent cleaning their car!

    Is it just the dodgy reflection in the door panel Dane, or have you been piling on the pounds?

    Wheels off to clean and seal (Meg wheel brightner and Poorboys wheel sealant)... and yes I did clean and detail (303 Aerospace protectant) under the arches


    Engine bay (303 Aerospace protectant)...


    Interior... (Poorboys natural looking dressing, Race Glaze leather balm and Race Glaze Alcantara cleaner)


    ...and after a snow foam and wash, a full machine polish using 3M Ultrafina SE and 3M blue waffle pads... topped off with Jeffs Werkstat Acrylic...




    I ache all over now

    Hmm, not bad.

    Only joking Paul, looks fantastic. Just noticed you have "full length" rubber seal strips above the headlights as opposed to the short ones - did you change them for a reason?

    Old ones fell off while Blade were cocking up the warranty paint work on the rain channels.... the long ones are what was listed for the car (apparently)... I was gonna cut them but never got around to it
