Loving the BMW pal.

The noise and power are so addictive but it never really gets released.

For such a powerful car, it's a breeze to drive around town at 30mph and then really comes to life when you open it up. The pop's bangs from the exhaust are quite chavvy but bring a smile to your face.

The weather has played ball so far this year so the roof gets put down at every opportunity.

Just got to try and hold onto it for longer than the typical 9-12mths that we normally own a car but I can't see me getting bored any time soon.

Really nice job, just finished a golf tsi convertible which was also in white. This customer just wanted two hours work so it was nowhere near your standard, and the car was 5 years old.

Great result, and very thorough.

Point taken on not letting the dealership wash the car. Last time I took my Golf in for a service at Sytner Huddersfield I saw them 'wash' another customers car with a sweeping brush, picking up the soapy water from the puddles on the ground.

I told the receptionist that I didnt want the car washed, why not she said, they are professional valeters.

Cracking car there, and some very nice work.
How did you find the C5 to use, it's something I've always wanted to try on my wheels

It's just the lack of machining I've managed to do, and the fact that those wheels scare me how much they marr, so I'm dubious about how a waterless wash will affect it

Got Carpro ech2o to use tho which is meant to be good

Thanks very much

It's my 2nd time using C5 and its a surprisingly a doddle if you know what to do and not do

You need the wheels off and indoors ideally, and completely spotless throughout

Good lighting is key so if you have a friend who can hold a light, as that's the only thing you can do to see where you have been. It leaves a very thin film behind so you are relying on the shimmer to see what you have left to do/missed

As soon as you apply to the face, immediately remove with a short pile mf, then do the barrels

After you've done all 4 wheels you need to chuck the cloth as it crystallises hard, and then not get them wet for 24 hours to prevent water spotting

Other than that it's easy and gives great performance
