    Default Car Wash & Diesel Spill

    I was going for a car wash this morning anyway, went to a garage I've never been before as I needed a car wash. We have an evergreen tree in our car park and it has decided to dump sap on my car in the last week so it needed a clean. Filled up the car whilst I was waiting, slowest pump ever, so was gazing around then all of a sudden, diesel peeing everywhere over everything. Shut-off didn't work! Not happy, I now smell of diesel! Anyway, pics!
    P.S. Last two pics the fog lights are on because I'd just locked it. Happy Light Show!

    Because I don't fill up in my office car park!
    This was after it had been washed and I'd parked up at my office about a mile away.

    Oh and Khalid, you are completely free to laugh at the poor job you'd expect from the car wash, being a specialist in this area. Look at the alloys and the pathetic attempt at getting the brake dust off. About all that's clean is the centre cap, which is nice!

    It needs a proper job, might have to take it somewhere and get it done inside and out, thankful for the factory tints as you can't see the boot full of suspension components ready to go on tomorrow!

    i never laugh at any one that takes care off there car . i find with alloys if they are bad then take them off and get them cleaned up , then a good coat off polish/wax and that will help keep them clean and the brake dust wont stick as much . khalid

    In this case you really would laugh, not quite as bad as some of those cars where they have a big dirty vertical line at the rear where the brushes have met, but not far off. It's been abused and unloved the last month or so, it really needs some TLC. Leather needs a bit of treatment at some point. Suspension needs sorting first.
