    Cleaned the car today...

    Just thought I'd share a few pics taken with the D80.




















    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    beautiful. is that basalt or regular black?

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    Once again, lovely pictures of a fine car! Its still looking nice after that expensive detail I see also...keep up the good work!

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    Beautiful. Jeez, sunny day there too

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    I did not manage to see one little tiny spot of dirt , and I really looked hard
    I do not have the patience to do that kind of cleaning... mine only sees the high pressure self wash...

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    Nice pics. Black is such a great color when it's clean. I just had my c2s cab, detailed, waxed, and sealed. I'm like you, I hate when my car is dirty. Even in SoCal, where it rarely rains or snows, it still gets dirty, especially dusty. I noticed sunshine there. Is it sunny often?

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    The word 'clean' is inadequate...

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    You missed a spot.

    It's Basalt. Looks like regular in some shots.

    I've done 14,000 miles now in 10 months so I guess I'm enjoying it. Told myself I needed to enjoy this car as opposed to owning a garage queen. I have loads of small stone chips on the bonet/hood which is doing my head in. However I'm still glad I didn't get the clear bra.

    Hell no. Hence the reason I managed to get 5 hours in. Apparently it's going to be like that all week.

    I wished I'd of had time to clay and apply cleaner fluid before the wax. But that would have meant 8 hours at least and the wife was already getting anxious.

    Gnil said not.

    Thanks for all the comments fellow enthusiasts. I still owe you all a write up regarding the DMS remap.

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    Fine job. Where do you live? Can you do mine?

    Seriously, beautiful car, nice to see someone also using theirs (I too do a lot of miles in mine - 10k p.a. appx). Going to Alps in 2 wks so the average will go up a bit!

    Hve fun,

    SoS.

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    'Cleaned' is not the best word to use, it's IMMACULATE. Great Job! Stunning photos too.

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    nice exhaust is that an after market product ?

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    Very nice.

    Looks like standard PSE to me.

    Great cleaning job ResB - must get started on mine if this weather holds.

    It is PSE, just polished.

    Hey John, the weatherman says it should hold all week. Thanks for the kind comments guyz.

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    wow, i was almost positive your car was regular black, not basalt black...your pics are a good argument in favor of basalt...

    Decided to clean it today.... so it's bound to rain tomorrow!

    Here's some photos just taken at dusk. Took them from my bedroom window - quite like the unusual angle....

    Nice!

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    John, Looks mint and brought back some memories. Before I got my car I had an image of yours gleaming like you could never imagine. It was in a similar position if I remember correctly. I would look at the image longingly waiting for my delivery hoping that when it arrived it would look like yours.

    Thanks ResB, that's nice to know.

    Yes, same location (home)... I think the image is the one on my avatar? Basalt really takes some beating when it's clean.

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    What's all that green stuff on the ground? 10 inches of snow due here tonight.

    Nice pics both of you. I wonder what the 0-60 time is with a trailer hitched up?

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    what interior color is that? :P

    Re: Cleaned the car today...


    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    I doubt it left the factory that perfect! And its on a black car, making it all the more impressive. It's inspiring yet intimidating at the same time - I wanna go do mine now, but how do you do as well as that?!

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    Simply gorgeous pics mate

    Re: Cleaned the car today...

    I haven't had any stone chips yet (after 5050 miles) in 5 months....I keep A LOT of braking distance between me and the car in front...
