right so now have a ctr and the paint it pretty pink, namely the noticable difference between bumers and car lol

without a full blown detail and using cheapo products, what is the best method to brighten her up?

also my mate has a machine polisher he can lend me, am i wise to do this after never using one before?













p.s i am not going to be any of these overpriced dodo thingys so am hoping for advice as goodwill....

I'm taking my Leon to my local valeting place for them to Valet and machine polish for 75.

Once they have done that I will just polish it with autoglym SRP once a month.

You want a decent result but are not willing to pay for the products or expertise? You sound like my MD
