I'm taking delivery of a new A3 in Daytona Grey in a couple of weeks time, and have been wondering about some form of paint protection. About the only decision I've made so far is not to take the dealer up on their overpriced Lifeshine offer. I was considering a Gtechniq treatment, however have recently seen some suggestions that this is easily damaged if not always washed with Gtechniq shampoo. I never use cheapo hand car washes, but equally living in a London flat do sometimes have to use a jetwash or something. My priorities are more paint protection and ease of cleaning rather than absolute show shine. Does anyone have any suggestions?
