Had a bit of a wash today after too long!

I'll admit it, I'm a lazy ******* when it comes to washing cars. But when I do put the effort in, I'm always pleased with the results.

So here are some pics to show off my black beauty... The paint condition is not great, and it will have a full detail at some point in the future, but it's looking ok for now

I'm terrible, and haven't polished or waxed it since I bought it :/

I actually have some Black Hole on the way, and I'll be putting a decent Autoglym wax on top of that.

These photos are fairly flattering... Up close, the paint is swirly as all hell.
