Hey, my Ally is 10months old and has lost its sparkle, currently nearly at 10,000miles on the clock. I brought (waited for ages for one) K2 Karcher pressure washer and snow foam (btw half price at Halford
)
I am planning on deep cleaning him this weekend. any thoughts and tips??
Im planning on:
Snowfoam (leave to soak for a while)Autoglym shampoo (wash) + Polish glassTar remover on base side pannels (white car so lots of black spots, tar or brake dust)Spray off with K2ClayHD Cleanser(spray off rinse and dry)PolishWaxGtechniq Glass rain repellant (on all windows + glass roof) & Gtechniq silo seal on paint work
any advice would be great.

The K2 is a great pressure washer. I think it was over £139, but at £69 its a steal!
I got the CarPlan Demond SnowFoam and getting the Karcher snow foam lance for like £20.

AdamGlam79.. yes my car is fitted with the advance park assist from factory. I think from previous posts on here its hard/expensive to have parking sensors fitted after factory. worth a try if the Mrs wants them.

Im going to invest in mud flaps next winter! lol.
The white paint seems to dull in colour (if thats possible) since its polish and wax.. the paint looks like day 1 delivery shiny WHITE.

Get some iron out or similar fall out remover next. Iron is really noticeable on a white car.

I used gtechniq silo seal. it stops any fall out from sticking to the paint. also gives great beading and protection from sunlight UV damage.
