    Worth doing when you get results like that, the paint and alloys have come alive. Great job and best of luck keeping it that clean.

    I have the last week of March off and intend on giving mine the full hit, full detail, hoping my S3 pedals will turn up by then and may remove my SLine badges. I also want to find the 'OCD Clean' sticker that a few users have on Detailing World.

    Aaarrgh! So much want to get out and detail mine too but the weather is just rubbish. How much longer before the winter finally ends? Right now the car's covered in ****, which is playing havoc with my OCD tendencies. Definitely got to get an OCD Clean sticker - where can I get one from?
