you are not alone, i do that every 6 months. All the wheels come off 1 at a time and they get scrubbed down until they are spotless.

The wife thinks I am mad, I did this when I own a Golf V5.

i have heard there is a OCWCD clinic :dancing: I am they CEO :shakehands:

Hey tell me about it. I've had to slowly get used to taking the car out in ever increasing amouts of rain. It still really hurts though, and on a weekend i have to tie my hands and feet together to stop cleaning it. What's the point, you've got to enjoy it, that's what they tell me anyway?
I once got beaten in a concours by someone who polished their springs! He'd done 15K miles in a '94 corrado. Again, what's the point in having it if not to drive?

Might as well rotate your tires at this point, eh?
