That looks great Henry11, the sun brings out the colour really nicely. I haven't seen a Tiguan in that colour myself as far as I can remember.

Perhaps there is an alternative career waiting for you as a car valet.

Thanks for the kind comments guys, tbh didn’t spend too much time doing it. I too have never seen another on the road. Top tip I was given years ago, when you clean your car dress the tyres, no matter how good the paintwork looks, if tyres not dressed it won’t look as good.
As for career, I’d be in a wheelchair if I did 2 back to back! Like to keep car looking good, but sometimes body doesn’t allow, thank heavens for pills! Lol

I must agree that dressing the wheels (for me) is essential, and one of the first things I do.

Snow foam
Rinse
2 bucket method wash
Rinse
Dry tyres
Dress them
Then concentrate on the bodywork ect

Ok ok not the first thing I do but the 5th 😂

Ditto myself - clean wheels are like wearing clean shoes .. no matter what the rest of the outfit is like (within reason !) it’s those that provide the bottom line on appearance.
Agree that’s a great colour - wish they did an R-line in red.
You should also post those pictures in the gallery section !
