    Haha, that's spotless compared to mine - not sure I could actually bring myself to point a camera at it.

    I will confess right here and right now that, to my eternal shame and possibly ostracism of the forum, mine hasn't been washed at all in the three months I've had it!

    I'm actually extremely anal when it comes to washing cars. Car washes are a total no-no and I won't even let the dealer do it - I do it myself, properly with twin buckets, grit guards, wool mitts, pressure washer, foam lance the works. It's just that it takes a while to do properly and I've not had the opportunity to do so yet. Once this foul weather clears up I'll give it some love.

    I cleaned it just before we had the snow, knew it was probably a wast of time due to the weather but couldn't help myself!

    I know what the problem was with the door speaker. Dirt penetrating the paint and getting into the back of the speaker ;-)

    Mine is pretty awful now too, this week I've managed a roundtrip of Somerset to Surrey to East Sussex and back home via Birmingham. The car doesn't feel appreciated right now so it will get cleaned at the weekend. Before and after pictures to follow! ;-)

    haha.

    I am still waiting for my amalifi white to turn up, the first thing i want to do is, get some sort of paint protection on it. Not sure what really, might get someone else to do it. I know there is this one product but forgot the name, has numbers in its product codes and starts with G i think.

    just seen the following on Money Saving Expert.com. Was thinking of getting something on my Amalfi White when it arrives. Does anyone have any experience of these sealants???


    new car , paint sealant rip off
    not really sure if this is the right section to post in...please move if need be


    i thought id share my 16 years motor trade experiance with you, most car dealers will try to sell a paint protection/sealant package on new and used cars, often costing £200-300 or more


    most of your £££ goes into the salemans pocket, and the paint protection warrenty is worded in a way that you will never make a claim from them...yes its a rip off!!


    so....dont buy the sealant package, use a good quality car shampoo often and wax your car 4 times a year (more if you can), that will protect it just as well for £25 a year in products

    thanks mate.

    i already own the werkstat Acrylic set (shampoo, polish and seal). You can see some info here: Don't You Just Love The Werkstat Acrylic! - Detailing World

    This was the stuff i was talking about Gtechniq C1
    Exterior Coatings // G|Techniq

    or the C2v2
    Exterior Coatings // G|Techniq

    some pics in use
    C2 v2 small review and pics.... - Detailing World

    they also do this: Exterior Coatings // G|Techniq

    also for the glass G1
    Exterior Coatings // G|Techniq


    more of there range: Exterior Coatings // G|Techniq


    some people have also mentioned:
    Cquartz 30ml KIT - CarPro UK // Car Pro Professional Car Coatings
    Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 Permanent Paint Coating Elite Car Care

    Might just pay someone else to do it tbh.
    The reason was to stop light scratches and to make it easier to clean, if that makes sense.
