Talking My first clean...

Today I decided to give the car a proper good clean as the sun was out.

Not really into this detailing stuff so wasnt sure how to go about it.

So

2 Bucket wash
Clay Bar
Polish
Wax
Wheels and tyres
Windows cleaned

Was pretty impressed as managed to get alot of the swirls out of the bonnet, still got a few little scratches that are really annoying me that im going to keep going over, can anybody recommend anything to get scratches out of black cars?

Anyway, this was the result -










Need to get myself a decent camera I think!

Nice!

The houses and garages look like Married Quarters? SFA in modern parlance.

Looks great i do like black, but that isn't a standard 320d exhaust.

Nope, it's a standard system but I didn't like the tailpipe so got a fabricators to chop it off at the back box and weld on these ones and a new bracket, did a good job at a good price.
