    Hi guys,

    As some may know im fanatical about the way I keep my car... it gets washed twice a week and waxed once a week and after 2 years of ownership i think with constant polishing and waxing the finish is great.

    Iv always used Auto Glym but recently switched to Meguiars Next Gen Wax and have found it to be brilliant.

    Today i gave it a good going over:
    1. Took the wheels off the car to wash them thoroughly at the back.
    2. Washed the car with Auto Glym car shampoo then rinsed then washed again.
    3. Dried the car off.
    4..Coated the tyres in Auto Glym tyre shine and applied Autosol to the exhaust to get them nice and shiny
    5. Car didnt need claying as i did this a month ago so went straight in with the wax.
    6.While this was on i dressed the arches and polished the door shuts/creamed the leather/treated the hood.
    7.Buffed the wax off and went round the windows with Auto Glym glass polish.

    Im no detailer but took some good pics showing the reflection/finish on the paint!

    Sorry if this is boring but thought i would share

    Looks brilliant, looks almost as good as mine :p

    When the titanium silver is waxed, it looks fantastic

    Any news on the tints by the way mate?

    Oh really? - What you planning to get next?

    If you wanna sell it, would you sell it with the xenons on? - I want xenons but haven't really looked into it...

    I take it you don't have any error messages on your dashboard..
