As we don't seem to have one, and I've actually cleaned my car today, I thought I'd start a clean car thread.

So before:

Today I cleaned my car Picture1_zpsce2a2903
Today I cleaned my car Picture2_zpsa78f2482
After attacking with Karcher's finest, got rid of a lot but was clearly baked on:
Today I cleaned my car Picture8_zpsdb7316bc
Today I cleaned my car Picture3_zps8c25eb6a
Today I cleaned my car Picture4_zps53561be3
Today I cleaned my car Picture5_zpscf59cb02


Front wheel during:
Today I cleaned my car Picture10_zpsd576aa05
Today I cleaned my car Picture11_zpsfba30466


Done:
Today I cleaned my car Picture17_zpsed955d0f
Today I cleaned my car Picture19_zpsdd195f17
Today I cleaned my car Picture16_zps44059bf9

That'll do until MITP I think!

Looking good. Mine is in the bodyshop having the door repaired and hasn't been washed for nearly 2 weeks. So it'll be done at the weekend when I get it back.

I've told them not to. I prefer to do it myself. I've seen how bodyshops and dealers wash the cars and it sends shivers down my spine thinking about it.  pale

I've seen it enough never want to experience it.

I keep my car too swirl free for those wash meisters

If you don't want the dealer to wash it, as well as telling them, I'd also stick a note to the steering wheel. Often valeters don't see the job cards, and when it's busy, they'll wash the car before it goes in for service, so the technicians haven't read the special instructions. They'll just go in the service key cupboard themselves and work through the cars present...

Today I cleaned it.  Again.  More than likely the last clean it'll get this year as December is busy!

Before, it actually looks cleaner than it was somehow:
Today I cleaned my car Picture13_zpsc9434354
Today I cleaned my car Picture14_zps7c72237f
Today I cleaned my car Picture11_zpsb9eab60f

After:
Today I cleaned my car DSC_5785_zpsa3e05f5f
Today I cleaned my car DSC_5790_zps31eff17c
Today I cleaned my car DSC_5797_zps09178cd5

I've taken a few cars to those guys before - I think they do a really decent job for a hand wash place and reasonable too Smile
