    Ist Wash

    Forum Key Rings
    One full week of ownership, 200 miles and first wash.

    Was just going to be a quick wash and dry, but turned into a snow foam, wash, dry, quick detail spray.
    Washed really well, dried like a biatch .
    Found all the bad bits i think, stone chips, deep scratch on front valance, bird crap burn marks on the roof, scratches on boot and drivers door.
    Going to need touch up paint eventually, def needs a clay and compounding, but other than that don't look that bad. Have to remember last car had 3 1/2 years of TLC.

    From experience it always escalates from just a quick wash and dry 😂
