Smile It's been a while..

My detailing addiction has been muted somewhat over the past 3 years, mainly because I decided to lease a grey Golf, which I simply failed to fall in love with.

However, last week, I had a new arrival. A VW Areteon in Tumeric yellow (hopefully my attachments have worked?!). The colour is not to everyone's taste, but I love it+the car. They're relatively rare right now, as was the CC that they essentially replaced.

Along with the new car came a very large delivery from cleanyourcar - among the new products (to me) are Poorboy's White Diamond and VC-yellow (I'm a long-time user of VC-red).

I look forward to spamming ya'll with my efforts over the coming years!

Hi and welcome to DW

Looks a lovely car, as you say, rare at the moment and dare I say, the colour looks nicer in the flesh than the photo

Enjoy yourself here

That’s a tad harsh. I have the same car in Pyrite Silver and it turns heads and drops jaws everywhere it goes. At night the lights are a thing of beauty.

Well thats my opinion. It feels like a golf in materials. Hard plastics/cheap feeling. U dont have to agree
