Well, the Astra is now ready for the Winter.
Yesterday went into local garage for a service, overall costing just over £200. Nothing major wrong at all, only extra on top of service were new front wipers, £30! Amazing how much smoother it is to drive. Noticed that it doesn't now appear to be revving as high when cruising at 70 on the motorway. Used to be around 4000rpm, now cruising at about 3500.
Today, got day off work, so decided that whilst the weather was cool and it was grey and overcast it was time for its final detail before the winter sets in properly.
Used following procedure/products:
Rinsed then washed with NXT and mitt
Rinsed and washed again with NXT
Polished with AG SRP
Glazed with PB Blackhole
Waxed with Sonax VXR Wax
And the results (sorry for lack of quality, only had phone to hand!)
