    Really want to wash it, but the roads around Derbyshire are so dirty there seems little point... might just wack her through a jetwash, take the worse off! Still, shes doing me proud

    I hate my cars when they get dirty, but love it when they are "really" dirty like this, you may aswell leave it for a bit longer

    I am with you chum. I washed mine, spent ages getting into all the nooks and crannies and within 1 hour!!!! it looked like it had never been touched, now I plan a blast with the P/W myself until the muck & bullets die down from the roads.

    Mine was the same until Monday. Got the pressure washer out, then the 2BM with Dodo's finest and a lovely dry off with their super soft drying towel. Just been out and washed it again this afternoon, looking sooo much better now.

    That's a proper colour. Either really, really mucky outside so it looks like it's done a rally stage or spotless. None of this in-between stuff!

    Must say, does look just as tasty dirty as it does clean though

    My Astra was filthy so washed it the other day. Wish I hadn't as I found a big stone chip on the front.
