    car cleaned... (pics) think i want a wheel change???

    cleaned my car today with g3 detox then give it a coat of g3 resin wax afterwards... got a good shine to it ive been thinking about changing my wheels over the last few weeks and ive decided i definately want another set of wheels, think ill stay with 19s but want something a bit out of the ordinary, something wide, maybe staggered fitment... been looking at few different range rover 19s but not 100% on anything in particular, really like atheo 19s off a touareg, 3sdm looks amazing too... just cant make my mind up!!

    this afternoon..

    Is the rear quater a diff shade of red to the bumper or does it just look that way in the pic?
    If it's got tits or gears it's gonna be expensive.

    yeah ill be investing in a buffer i think, had a little go with the scratch removal and pad when i first bought it on a little scuff... it took AGES to remove a light scratch, did work though just dont fancy doing it by hand when a buffer will do it it minutes lol!

    You know it mate!! If you know what your doing you can skip the claybar and use a cutting compound on the buffer then switch to a finer polish and a softer buffer head, I DO NOT RECOMMEND DOING THIS IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE MOPPING CARS THO!

    ive got no experience with cutting and buffing to be honest mate, all my other cars so far have been primarily to go quick, but after i bought my a4 i wanted to get it looking fresh and gleaming, it does have swirls and minor scrathces all round (probably from drive through car washes and bad polishing technique) got a mate who knows a thing or 2 about detailing so bought this stuff ready for when ive got a bit of knowledge on the job with me, dont fancy ruining my paint lol!!

    Yeah stick with the clay mate, keep everything nice and wet, if you hear a 'ziiiiiiiiiiiiip' like sound STOP and clean everything and start over.

    car cleaned... (pics) think i want a wheel change???

    Cars looking very nice I've just changed from 18" to 19" ch on my a4 b6 cab and I love them. Always been my fav wheel from ten years ago but never had a car to put them on. I looked at so many. Here's mine on ch's



    I think lm's are nice wheels too but you will see allot with those too. I think you will get that with any wheel.

    Like the look of the car.

    The alloys looks smart, you could just refurb them in a different colour?

    3SDMs always look awesome, people argue that they are overdone but personally i wouldn't care as they look the nuts!

    Cheers mate, I've not seen any cars with 3dsm's as yet, I agree they do look good! Really aggressive with the width and curve on the spokes, good do with some photo shopped on mine see what they look like!

    Thanks mate, yours really suits the ch's, I still like mine but just recently a fair few people in my area have put ch or lm's on there golfs, a3s, leons ect... Maybe I inspired them haha! Just fancy a change really, would maybe keep my ch's for winter wheels

    Can't remember if there was a spec name to the coilovers mate, got them from deemon Tweeks with a nice discount... Brilliant suspension! Apparently made in same factory as kw with same materials just a whole lot cheaper, my ap's have kw stamped bump stops too. Best coilys I've had tbh

    Do you have a good stretch on the tyres? Really like the look of them mate, Be good to see what they look like with coilovers, wide and low! You got plans for suspension?
