New here. First post - 2017 Scirocco R

Hi all. New here. My names Andrew and I'm 28 years old. I work as a body shop estimator. And this is my 2017 VW Scirocco R in Urano grey.

Washed with all auto finesse products.

AF snow foam
Jet wash
AF lather hand wash with lambs wool mitt 2bm
Rinse
AF aqua coat
Rinse
Dry with AF aqua towel

Wheels also washed with lather in a third bucket. Along with AF wheel cleaner.

Car also has a few coats of AF temptation wax. And tyres dressed with AF satin creme.

Interior done with just a hoover and AF interior cleaner for now. Car only has 1200 miles on so far so nothing major needed interior wise yet. Although I do need to get the leather protected.

I'll let some pictures do more talking.













I have just bought some spare mirror caps to paint gloss black. And am doing the badges gloss black to match the grilles. And will be getting some H&R lowering springs next month too. Then putting on my private plate.

Thanks for reading.

Welcome. Beautiful car. VW just seem to do it right these days. Always loved that colour too. It seems to go almost milky in the right light.

Good shout on the springs. I'm shocked at the arch gap they've left on an R badge. You could host a dinner party in there.

Will look the mutt's nuts when it's dropped a little

Very nice, it looks really good in that grey, the wheels look great as well.

You need to get the photos up once its lowered

Cheers for the welcome

Colour isn't to everyone's taste but I personally love it. Keep getting asked "couldn't you afford paint on it, had to come in primer?" .

And the wheels I like also, But even been 19s the arch gap is still silly big.

Looking forward to getting the springs on. Then a remap in a few months too. Should see around 330/340bhp then. Although it is nippy enough at 280 for now.

Very clean and shiny I'm a fellow Rocco owner, I do love the shape of them so much.
