First wash of r ownership

Well I have had the car a week now and still haven't been out a good drive yet due to the weather being rubbish here .
Today was dry so I gave it my first wash, just a gold glass and tyre dressing as it was too cold for a polish and wax , I did however apply some rain repellent to rear window to see if it clears the back window of rain ,
I took a few pics on the iPhone for just now ,

Nice one Paul

As a fellow Alabaster Silver owner, I recommend Autoglym SRP (cheap but excellent results) and Jetseal 109 as an easy thing to get applied even when it's too cold for a proper wax. They're both liquid based and very easy to apply/remove fairly quickly.

I tend to use this website:

Chemical Guys - Jetseal 109


It would be interesting to hear what the OCD cleaning types think, but my personal view was that you really need to put something over the top of your SRP as it's not particularly durable.
