    I wanted to use a sealant on my Glacier White S5 so i ordered the Werkstat Acrylic products and Menzerna polishing compounds which arrived yesterday

    I washed and clayed the car today so tomorrow will start on the paint correction.

    Ohhh very nice !

    it was a great feeling to clean my car yesterday and see her gleaming.

    I did think how the paintwork still looks great nearly 4 months after it was detailed, so well worth the time & effort.

    My 2008 TT was ibis white and it is a superb colour and MUCH easier to care for than many think.

    Best thing was zero watermarks after rain and it was easy to dry in hot weather unlike black or dark blue :)

    Look forward to pics.

    I hate a dirty car and get great pleasure from cleaning it,my last 3 cars have been dark colours which look great when clean but a bugger to maintain so this Glacier White will as you say be much easier to care for.Machine polishing all finished today every panel on the car was covered in swirls and spider webs etc found it difficult to photograph with the iPhone heres one picture of before and after of a section of the bonnet looking foreward to tomorrow to trying out the Werkstat Acrylic products.

    I'm looking forward to the summer and some nice sunny (dry) days.
    Took delivery of 5 mid November last year, so not really the bets time of year to take delivery but that's how it fell.
    The winter has not been that harsh tbh - just lots of wind & rain - so not too much grit / salt on the roads which is good at least.
    But yeah will be nice to see the car on a bright sunny summers day and taking her for a few good trips.
