    So I go to drive my car earlier today and I find my car looking like it's just had a few laps off-roading. And it's not just my car, nearly all the cars on my street look the same. Have you guys experienced this?

    It's sand that was picked up from a sandstorm in the Sarah's IIRC and it got blown over some parts of Europe, I was very annoyed as I washed and clay barred my car the day before

    Happens quite often, we had it in Sheffield.

    Make sure you pre-wash and two bucket that **** otherwise u might as well sandpaper your paint.

    I was thinking the same this morning when I went out to my car (haven't driven it since Sunday). Spent 3 hours on Sunday morning cleaning and waxing it too!

    Was going to wash my car on my day off tomorrow until I came out this morning and it was turning a nasty shade of orange, bloody dust :(.

    Remember to snow foam your cars before washing chaps!
