My New S2000 After A Bath!

Here are some pics of my new 2009 Moonrock S2K Roadster during and after a clean I did this weekend. I have also just finished running her in so this weekend has seen my first real VTEC experience after my FN2 left me

Enjoy...

Pre-wash snowfoam

Wheels cleaned with TW nano-tech and Meguiars brush then rinsed again

Dried using Meguiars waffle weave microfibre

Bilt-hamber autobalm application began

Yeah it's good, does get heavy though when wet, also care is needed around badges and wipers etc as the wookie can shed some of it's fur at times and get hooked onto things!

I've noticed that too and it can soak up half a bucket of water in one dunk.

Ooooh JP that does look good. I was parked right next to one like that today.

I have to say that seeing them with black interior is unusual and I think it actually really suits it.

Thanks angie, yes I thought it was going to be all black but it has some nice red stitching and I think I actually prefer it now.

No I am still in the same place, it's just Bristol were doing the car 8000 cheaper than G&M so I thought it was probably worth traveling for

Still haven't decided whether I'm going to let G&M loose on it for servicing etc.

Grand Prix White is okay in the photos, but when I collected my car a white one was next to it and it isn't anywhere near as nice as I thought.

Secondly the white is a GT100 limited edition which is 5000 more than what I paid, just for a different colour!

Very similar, just goes to show people that say the FN2 should have had 220 or 240BHP know very little about cars and just care for the numbers.

The S2K handles better and the ride is far better though.
