    Phil3 your right there mate. Tried a few but really rate the gtechniq one. I had a synthetic lambs wool one but found the bigger bits of debris use to stick to it like the proverbial to the blanket, quite tricky to keep debris free.

    I got one 2 years ago mate still looks great but l decided a few months ago to get a new one and twice the mitt of my old one, it's larger, deeper pile and feels a bit more quality

    Do a better job in the first place. If you're missing bits, you're ****!

    Daytona is no harder to wash than any other, and shows way less dirt. OP it sounds more like improper wash technique to me.

    Clean wheels with Wheel cleaner and assorted brushes
    Foam with Bilt Hamber foam and let dwell, take detailing trust to badges, grille and crevices
    Rinse thoroughly
    2 Bucket wash with any decent shampoo and a chenille (noodle) wash mitt or quality microfibre wash mit.
    Rinse thoroughly
    Dry with a plush drying towel

    Stand back and admire

    I'm on my second Daytona A4.
    Hands down easiest to clean and look clean for longer even when it's bogging..

    This is my second car in Daytona grey & i don't find it any harder to keep clean. One of the best colours around & Grey cars are now the biggest selling colour.

    I think the a3 models wear roof boxes and those style of alloys very well indeed 688B355D-0038-4D80-BD12-57BEE38FFCDF.jpeg

    The problem with Daytona Grey is that when you get it clean enough it becomes nearly invisible to other road users :)

    And a gratuitous beading shot :). Got to love that pearl magnified in the droplets!

    Remember this pic well. Just a great combo, and the roof box really works well with the rails :icon thumright:

    Sorry mate, it's been raining non stop since I got it last October - not had a chance for some proper pics. If there is anything specific you want photos of though I'd be happy to snap some for you.

    That was my point, but thank you captain obvious :)
