Nevada White Leon Cupra 300 First Detail

Hi all

I picked up my brand spanking new Seat Leon Cupra 300 last week. Its a 5 door, manual transmission, finished in metallic Nevada White. The surprise however was the free inclusion of the 'virtual cockpit' which had previously been an expensive extra

After a 200 mile round trip to collect from Seat IMG in Warrington it was already looking a little sorry for itself. In true British fashion it decide to snow that same day scuppering my plans of a good Sunday cleaning session

So all week I have been itching to get some protection on the car and keeping a very close eye on the weather hoping the forecast was right and for once the Met Office was spot on! Perhaps even a little too sunny

Armed with a mixture of products I have amassed over time I used the following:

2 bucket wash method
AF Lather Shampoo & AF Microfiber wash mitt
AF Iron out applied and allowed to dwell
Clayed using Valetpro blue contaminate bar
AF Aqua Deluxe drying towel
Poorboys White Diamond Glaze applied x2
Buffed with edgeless Koreon buffing towel
Dodo Juice Diamond White Carnauba Wax x 2
Buffed with edgeless Koreon buffing towel
Autosol metal polish applied to exhaust tips
AF Crystal applied to all glass
AF Satin applied to tyres
AF Mint Rims added to alloys

Most of the products had been previously used on my Sprint Blue S3 but with the drastic colour change I had opted for some specific items to enhance the white paint. It was my first time using Dodo Juice products and I was please with the ease of application. Buffing was a little more stubborn but I think that was down to the sunlight speeding up the curing process. Its also sends you loopy buffing a white car

As these threads are boring without photos here are a few afterwards

Next will be a full detail and protection inside but for now here is a quick pic of the virtual cockpit

Nice job my mate got one about 6 months ago wth no "virtual cockpit". Did they throw it it, make a mistake, or is it a standard now?

Top quality work, I actually prefer the looks of these over the Golf.

Ooh very nice - do like a clean, glossy white car. Used to have an A5 in white and loved it clean - pity it never seemed to stay that way with our weather ...

Enjoy your new motor and the virtual dash looks nice

Thanks for the comments guys! I know it will take some elbow grease keeping it clean but I love a challenge!

The virtual cockpit has been made standard kit for the Cupra since the start of the year so I was one of the lucky ones.

Cheeky beading shot this morning too after some rain:
