My wife refused to wash the car today, apparently it was too cold, given our marriage vows I was left somewhat disappointed.

Bought a K4 in the black friday sales and it's still sat in the garage with the security wrappers on!

Really a mixture of no time and sht weather.

Anyone braved it today?

Couldn’t wait any longer. Snow has thawed to just the piles now so I thought it time to give it a go. KC Green Star sprayed all over and left to dwell the power washed off and blown dry. A massive improvement, but not perfect. I didn’t want to have too much water in case it froze and turned the drive into a skating rink. Very impressed with the porous drive we chose, the water drains straight through and the sun pretty much dried the rest.

A nice maintenance wash today. Love getting the car cleaned at this time of year. It doesn't take much work when it's prepped before winter and the transformation is always a joy.

I was going to jet wash mine today but there was a 3 car queue, I don't do queueing.

So came home for a beer and some spicy chicken wings in front of the fire. A much better use of time I'm sure you'll agree.

Gave mine a quick going over this morning, once the sun came up it was quite pleasant, a balmy 10c with no wind and warm water in the buckets
