wow i love that, can't say i'v ever seen an r estate in red before.

also i usually despise aftermarket wheels but they look very oem and suit the car as much as the pretorias do.

i haven't washed my pure white r for a month or so and this has spurred me on to do it in the morning

Thanks! The wheels remind me of GT3 wheels. Like you say I think they look almost OEM.

Be sure to get pics of your R when clean it!

Tornado R Estate

Havenít posted here in ages. Still lurk plenty though.
Carís had the usual maintenance washes.
See some swirls creeping in on the gloss black pillars despite a safe wash technique.
Once the weatherís a little warmer again Iíll give them another going over.

Got Carbon Collective polishing balls in a Black Friday deal.
So polished up my exhaust tips (some pitting remains) also some my back box.
Some pics of them and some post wash pics in general.

I have just used a rotary on my Octavia b pillars. It is wash technique but most marks are from closing the door holding the pillars. Scratches from rings and fingernails and general wear and tear.
