    Following on from this thread...

    Thanks again Mark...

    Today I finally got around to giving it a go on my E91 today...

    1st I gave the car a bit of a rinse with the pressure washer, then out with the Magifoam..







    Then a wash using the usual two bucket routine and cleaned the wheels with a brush and some wheel cleaner (thanks again for the wheels Vorny - I am looking after them for you!), washed it off with the pressure washer again.

    Next up was the foam lance again and some Curious from Autobrite...







    Even the dog was fed up by now....



    Left that to "cure" for five minutes then washed it off with an open hose...

    Amazing product the results speak for themselves...







    Dried the car off with a couple of cloths and dressed the wheels - job done!









    Will start to use the rest of the stuff that I got from the Autobrite open day and start claying and polishing/waxing (Very Cherry and then Addiction wax from Autobrite), but the results look pretty good so far to me....

    Got a call today from Paul at 1st class alloys - they are ready....
    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...t-they-t76278/

    Just got to get sort out a day off to go and collect them now, a couple of coats of Very Berry wheel sealer (Autobrite again) and we are away - desperate to get them back TBH, I missed them... Watch this space.

    AND................
    You knew that I couldn't resist playing with the new toys, so while they were out I gave this a quick going over... Wasn't even dirty (it's only four days old - but I couldn't stop myself!!!)















    To be fair, we paid to have the "seal and protect" system on the car and generally it's pretty good so I just gave it a quick going over to keep on top of it...

    "What did we pay all that money for seal and protect then?" She said.... Like that is supposed to stop the f*****g thing getting dirty.
