    Ronnie, I may be daft, but I'm not clinically insane ... £8K buys much more car

    Damn. That's a lot!

    This is part of the reason I paid someone else to detail my car (the other part is I am lazy). I have just been pricing up the bits to wash my car:

    Two wash mitts
    Detail brush
    Two buckets with grit guard
    Shampoo
    Drying towel
    Detail spray
    Wax etc...


    That's got to be the best part of £100. I am considering just paying a detailer to wash and wax it for me once every couple of months!

    I like a spectacularly clean car. Once you do it right, then the weekly wash and quick detail spray leave excellent results between the months the full on stuff is done.
