    Take one bored student and a load of AutoGlym products = a shiny S3!

    Now that uni is finished for me ive been having trouble filling the time till i find myself a job, so took it apon myself to give the car a bit of a clean
    Id never used the HD wax before, and by the time i had finished i was knackered!! but it does am amazing job!
    So to kill even more time i did the interior this morning, cleaned the dash and cleaned and conditioned the leather, looks like new!! well happy!!

    Looking good!

    I can only imagine what the neighbors were thinking when they seen the tripod out!

    What do you use for your tyres?

    haha they have learnt to accept me and my odd ways!

    its just autoglyms tyre dressing spray, it keeps the tyres looking black for quite a long time, untill they get soaked, then needs a re application

    its one of the advantages of my course, am kept so busy with it, dont really have much of a social life so what money i do have, along with savings means i can treat myself to a nice car

    Looking very nice mate, the amount of time you spent clearly shows how many hours did you put in ?

    cheers mate!!
    i think it was about 3-3.5 hours on the exterior and i reckon another 1.5-2 on the interior
    its a real investment in time but when the sun hits it the shine is so deep the pictures just dont do it justice!!
