Amazing how quickly the grime builds up!!! I nearly clayed mine today but had to refrain as leant my QD to a mate.

Ahhhh, you have the 'detailing' bug.

I went all mental on mine when it was Tungsten, even as far as wet and drying some of the heavily scratched panels and polishing them back again with good results. But the difference in shades across the car really let it down so i just had it all painted in the end.

Yeah i got into detailing when we recently owned a MK5 Golf GTi and spent literally hours on it every weekend, got a real satisfaction from it - people thought i was mental!!

The 5 didn't come up too bad to be fair, needs a good clay from the feel of the paintwork and was tempted to have it mopped once all over.

Ash - you have PM

Just gone out to the car this morning and there is some lovely beading on the roof - check it out!
