While I was waiting to pick up my grandaughter today from swimming, across the road at a main dealer garage, I saw the new vehicles wrappers pulled off, powered washed, then unbelievably opened the front & rear doors and stood on the plastic door trim and seat to reach across as far as he could to 'squeegee' the roof off, of water :eek: . Just got me thinking I hope they don't do this at VW. As someone on this forum a bit back said he didn't want it washed etc after the protective package been removed. Got me thinking.
Also guys which is best....'Chamois leather' or 'Microfibre cloth to dry off the car please, as I have always used a Chamois....
Thanks Chris :)

Had my R Line delivered as it came off the transporter. Dealer wasn't too happy as he couldn't sell the autoglm protection. My previous car had swirl marks all over. I normally use micro cloths and wash after every use.

I haven't used a chamois for years. I feel more confident drying off with microfibre and spray on autoglym Aqua wax as I dry off....Just my opinion, there are some expensive chamois around that are soft and pliable.

+2 for microfibre. Every other wash i tend do do a light spray of a quick detailer such as Sonax Brilliant Shine whilst the car is wet and then wipe off with microfibre cloths to give it a bit of extra protection too.

:) Thanks Guys for your comments, much appreciated......I will ditch my 'chamois' and go and get some 'microfibre' cloths and will also give one of those quick detailers a go over the autum/winter months. :)

Brillo pad has always worked for me - and as if by magic all my cars have ended up a silver colour.....well untill it rains then kind of a rusty colour......apart from the audi which always stayed silver..

So i recommend Brillo !
