    Giving the Courtesy Car some loving ...

    Since I have a C7 out on loan, I thought I would give it a little clean since I'll have it another couple of days.

    Only 1200 miles on the car so the body is immaculate as you would expect.

    It was good this afternoon so I have it a good wash and a hoover and gave the dash a wipedown

    - Bilberry wheel cleaner, left to dwell then powerwashed off

    - Snowfoamed using Valet Pro, left to dwell then powerwashed off

    - Washed with Turtle Wax Zip Wax(?) using a genuine lambswool wash mitt using the two bucket method

    - Dried using a Megs Natural Chamois

    The car had zero wax or any sort of polish etc so it was a blank canvas.

    I felt sorry for the car, it won't get a good wash until its sold as I assume it will get a sprinkling with TFR and rinsed down.

    As with every car I drive, I treat it like one of my own as its how I would like my car to be treated.

    Dwelling:






    Finished Result

    Oh yes, every car I have out gets at least some minor attention.

    I treat each car I drive, like my own so hence the snowfoam and the attention to detail

    Only 1200 miles on it too, just under a month old.

    compared to the 2 month old a5 sportback i once had out this one is actually immaculate! the a5 had 4000 miles and was covered in holograms and nasty swirls!

    Na wouldn't ever trash a car that wasn't mine, I have too much respect for my own and would hope mine is being treated in the same way this one is

    Same with any proper hire car .. never trashed and drove like it was my own.

    7 out of 10 cars are company owned so most are driven by people that do not really care and do not bother to look after them, so that leaves 3 car owners who have bought a car so are more likely to look after it and keep it in good order if only for its resale value.
