    Default Washing a new car.

    Hallo there. I got my new Vectra 10 days ago. We have very "dirty" weather and roads in my home area these days. The road’s are being "salted" to prevent freezing, and the salt sticks to the car like white glue!

    If you want to keep your car clean, you have to clean it almost every day!
    Well, I don’t clean it every day, but I have already washed it tree times, and waxed it one time. The dirt is almost impossible to remove!

    I am a little bit concerned of the paintwork of my new car. Is there any way I can damage the paint by washing my new car too often? I got a feeling that the dirt is damaging the paintwork more than the washing.

    What do you fellows do, or think about this?
