    burg #513 cleaned (pic heavy)

    so after my car sitting still while i was on holiday
    and yesterday being fine weather
    i decided to give it a good clean
    heres the before pics -

    and can you see how much dust is on the windscreen -

    typical burg wheels (minging) -

    so weapons of choice today were -
    Microfibre wash mitt
    Megs gold class shampoo (brilliant stuff imo)
    Megs smooth surface clay kit
    Turtle Wax ICE Wax (not that good tbh)

    So off to the Karcher wash point (just over the road from where i live) for the first wash.
    Washed using Megs gold glass and microfibre mitt and a fooookin high pressure hose


    ignore the wheels at this point as they got done later

    once back at my place car was checked over prior to claying
    found a fair amount of tar spots and other surface comtaminents
    examples -


    So claying began
    First time iv ever used clay but i must say it works well
    Found the megs clay hard to mould at first but it took off the comtaminents well.
    Wheels were then washed using soft brush, hot water and gold class
    Afterwards wash another trip to the wash point
    Once back home again i started on with the ICE wax
    Tbh its an absolut pain in the ***** and doesnt really do that much
    However used very sparingly it works well on plastics
    Anyway here are the final results




    Couple of reflection shots


    Always loved shots from the back end with the VXR badge

    Had to go to the supermarket afterwards so took a few more shots
    on the way -


    Stopped for a minute -


    At Marktkauf -


    All done for the next week
    However whilst cleaning i have noticed some swirl marks around the car so im contemplating buying a machine polisher next
    And some decent wax again
    Future plans are-
    VXRacing black 19s and a whiteline RARB (sat in the UK at the mo and im not there, got to see when iv got the time to go get them)
    Dbilas flowmaster and courtney pipes (sat in a box in the cellar, need to measure up and order some decent jubilee clamps)
    Glenn yale Heatshield, Batt & Fuse boxes covers (ordered, coming soon)
    Courtney Stage 2 remap (possibly LSD, when iv got the enough time in the uk)
    Thats all for now
    Comments welcome and apprieciated

    Looks good mate. Get yourself some Dodo Juice Lime Prime and Zaino Z2Pro, will give a nice oily finish to the white.

    Off topic, where abouts in Germany are you? My brother lives in Detmold and works in Paderborn (3Bn REME)

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
