Same here. Although I wished mine was DSG this morning after stalling it. Very embrassing.

Another trip out at the weekend following the snowfall. Can’t wait to get photos here in Summer. Even managed to get a snap with my mates drone, which has got me wanting one. a1f2d9e33d8e9ef0ea80bdb1de770277.jpgddf1e185ed3c2c6eef235644db3fcc01.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Lovely choice of alloys! You’ve made me want some instead of Ultraleggeras! Are they lighter than the Zolders / Omanyt’s? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Not posted for a while. Biggest change is the wheels as one of mine cracked and had a set of Oz Superturismos sitting. I was waiting for summer and was going to refurb them for shows but needs must and fitted them as is. 398ba3dd904f534317b73ed2e26d2284.jpg685298e0848fe28e4be9b57f6c3787c6.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Lovely photos, I'm desperate to get out an machine polish my black R32, but weather has been too hot and having 4 year old twins has scuppered any opportunity to get out with the kit. what polishes and waxes are you using on yours?

Thanks rtbiscuit! As far as polishes/waxes go, I tend to give it a proper 2 bucket wash including snow foam before (still not convinced this does much haha). I’m currently using Soft99 Fusso wax and find it to be decent, just apply very lightly. I think all waxes will be decent, what’s important is the prep stages e.g. proper safe wash (2 buckets), clay bar/de-tar, wash again, then polish and wax. There’s plenty info on the likes of Detailing World and Clean Your Car. If you can get the paint in as best shape as possible before polishing /waxing you’ll leave yourself the best finish possible.

As I'm sure most of you will know, that's the car up for sale. It has been a pleasure being part of this forum during my ownership - the amount of knowledge that is in here can't, and never will, be rivalled.

 

If you know of anyone looking for a MK5, 3 door, black, manual R32 please let me know good.gif
