    Evening all,


    Well after cleaning the 135i and S3 yesterday, I thought I’d treat the Cali’ to some TLC today.


    This is the order of how I resulted in perfection... ;)


    Jetwash car
    Spray Bilberry Wheel Cleaner on wheels (4:1)
    Jetwash wheels
    Snow foam car with TW Big Orange
    Jetwash car
    Hand wash car (2BM), using Eurow sheepskin wash mitt and Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo
    Jetwash car
    Dry car and wheels with microfibre towels
    Dry panel gaps with Honda HHB25E leaf blower
    Dry with microfibre towels
    Dress tyres with CarPlan Instant Tyre Shine Foam
    Polish car with Autoglym Super Resin Polish using a Meguiars applicator pad
    Remove polish with Meguiars Supreme Shine Microfibre Towel
    Wait 10 minutes
    Seal car with Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection using a Meguiars Supreme Shine Microfibre Towel
    Wait 1 hour
    Remove sealant with a Meguiars Supreme Shine Microfibre Towel
    Stand back and enjoy the view!


    Now here’s some (far too many) pics for you all...

    You have gone over your limit on Photobucket matey, think it cost about £25 to upgrade to the pro account.
