New wheels!

Last weekend I was finally able to scratch my itch of owning a mk5 Golf R32. I picked up this beauty with only 61k on the clock and it is immaculate although needs a damn good detail/machine polish! Not a single scratch, dent or even a stone chip on the whole car. Just lots and lots of swirls!















So over the coming weeks the plan is to do a complete decontamination, followed by a one stage machine polish then probably Autoglym HD wax to top it off and give it some much need protection. There is absolutely no beading whatsoever at the moment!

That's a fine example of a mighty fine car.
Almost looks as if it's only had one careful enthusiast owner from new!
So glad it's landed in the hands of a DW member who will bestow upon it the care it deserves

That red '17 plate Seat looks OK but needs a wash - it's the only car I can see full screen

Looking forward to seeing the Golf
