cleaned my car today
Mixing jetwash (their foam, my mitten) with EcoTouch cleaning. Meguiars Ultimate Trim restorer, Glass cleaner and NXT wax.

PS - after uploading these pictures my 'attachment' bar is completely red now (more than 5MB), does it mean I can't upload anything else?

Go to User CP, under the "Miscellaneous" heading near the bottom in the left column there's an option "Attachments" From there you can delete your previously uploaded files. This link might work https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/profi...ditattachments

Heres a car i did a couple days ago, gently polished(with Rupes 21 and Menzerna SF4000 )to remove small swirls and dealer installed holograms.
LSP was a coating from Carbon Collective.
I see alot of wayyy to shiny tyres, and imo the shine achieved by Swissvax Pneu on this car was just right.

Assuming that doing this on my phone has worked, below you might see pics of my wife's Volvo.

There has been a move upmarket since my inaugural victory in this esteemed competition. Car shampoo is now from Tesco. This was followed with a going over with the clay cloth and a polish with Autosmart Platinum. Trim and tyres done with Autosmart Highstyle. Looks ok to say it's a 12 year old Volvo with 140k on it.
