    I won't even do that to my Hyundai. But all my cars are black. As for that brush???  Not what I would do. I don't even dry my cars to avoid the paint. I use the spot free rinse and then some speed to dry it off. 

    Regardless the sound of the v10 is awesome. Wish I had one but I would get arrested the first week. My silent turbo keeps me out of jail.

    RC:

    ... Car wash on Sundays? I had to drive 25 km for that because many regions in Bavaria do not allow a Sunday car wash. I am serious! In many German states, you cannot wash cars on Sundays at all, Baden-Württemberg, Porsche's home, is among them. Also, car wash is only permitted from 12 pm to 6 pm. No matter if the car wash is outside the city or not. ...

    Ok, i have to ask, why?


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    In France most businesses are not allowed to open on Sundays... That's what happens when unions and leftist governments take over. Restaurants are only open between noon and 2pm because labor is too expensive to stay open longer and taxes stop the owner from making money by staying open longer. Supermarkets are not open late evening either for the same reasons and you have to pay for any call to a service center even if you are a costumer. I am deeply surprised you don't know this since your political views lead DIRECTLY to all these "solutions", France is just 20 years ahead of the rest rest of the left political field in the world. Now you wonder why they have 12% unemployment? Oh and for by the way they also have minimum revenue for everyone... Not only that but high minimum salaries have created a perverse effect where basically the majority of people make between minimum salary and +20% of it creating no incentive to work more than the legal 35 hours week. Obama is going in that direction and Clinton will continue...


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    I use the same sort of car wash. I'm not interested in car cleaning, my cars rarely see a car wash but when they do I always bring my own sponge. Those brushes are a big no-no. enlightened

    Best comment of the year. I can actually pronounce it and it makes sense. Anyone want to top that?  Wow!!


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Well, I suppose it's not that different from places in the US, fewer all the time, that still have some sort of "blue laws".

    I always thought it was so quaint in CT grocery stores when they used to pull the little shades down over the beer at 6 o'clock on Saturday evenings. Can't have people boozing it up on Saturday night and not making it to church on Sunday as a consequence.

    Still, it appears to be a self service car wash, is there even an attendant on duty all the time?

    Neighbor just drove by. Jesus Chris that R8 sounds bad ass. Hands down. Have fun and put down the brushes!


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Although I do not share your political vision I have to say I don't like unions too.

    But: Problem here in Bavaria is the Catholic church. Friends who live near Berlin Are laughing about these problems. They are also laughing about those stories Christian told us with his kids and their religion classes in school. But you can believe me they have much bigger problems. As always and as everywhere religious people are the most hypocrite people. 

    And to start a new discussion about racism: we had a black Catholic priest here near Munich and his people made him to go because he was black.

    You mean to tell me that the reason you can't wash your car in Bavaria on a Sunday has to do with Sunday being the holy day of rest??

    LOL. Your son is really doing a number on your hood. indecision

    Honestly, all you need to do is let the soap sit a bit, spray it off, and then use a leaf blower/air to dry it. Very little reason to even touch the car unless there is something really caked on.

    It's white so I guess it won't be that big of a deal, but next time stick to using the brush on the wheels.


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Yes (in other parts of Germany it is possible)


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Weekends in Europe suck. For some reason, the days people have off are the days the stores are all closed or closed early. I was just in Germany for a month, and man, if you didn't have all your ingredients by noon, your dinner wasn't getting made. Even supermarkets close early.

    If you think it's bad now, you should have been in Germany a couple of decades ago before they liberalised store opening times.
    All stores used to stay open until 17:30h on the first Saturday of the month (i.e., the first Saturday after payday), but close at 14:00h on the other Saturdays. Saturday was the big shopping day back then because all stores closed at 18:00h on weekdays.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    In France business owners have been fighting to have stores open on Sunday's for two decades and have failed. They were opening and paying the fines for a while because they were making way more money by being open one extra weekend day but the government even closed that possibility. Not even right wing government have been able to make that one stick. And employees were paid overtime to come to work and it was done on a voluntary basis... Was kind of hoping the EU would push France in another direction with Britain how the example. That's gone now.

    One fun little known fact is that the USA is more unionized than France...


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    In Illinois car dealers are closed Sundays.  There was a push a few years back to open, but it was resisted--by car dealership owners, but for reasons that had nothing to do with costs.  Sunday was a big day for families to come and look at cars on the lot without a pushy salesman bothering them.

    Here an update is required : now it has been found that there was just ONE person who wrote several threatening letters to the priest . Its  a 74 -year-old pensioner who was then arrested.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Yes, but the priest didn't get enough by the catholic church and he left his position


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

      Yes (in other parts of Germany it is possible)

    But if its an old religious law, why is it enforced (if it is enforced)? how can a cop give you a fine for not resting on Sunday by washing your car if you are not bothering anybody or causing any harm?... I'm sorry but I find this too unreal... I mean you can freaking wash a gay parade's double decker open top bus in the Vatican on Sunday if you wish or do what ever you like on Sunday Smiley

    Wait, the law isn't that businesses can't be open, it's that people may not wash their cars on Sundays? Seriously?!


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    No, that's a misunderstanding. It's just that businesses can't be open. Privately you can do what ever you want.
