    Vehicle : Insignia 1.8 SRi

    Trim : VX Line Red

    Engine : 1.8VVT

    Year : 2011

    Default Spent a few hours on the CR-V

    I know it's not a Vec or an Insignia, but was quite pleased with the results so thought I'd stick a few pics of my good lady's CR-V on. It passed it's 1st MOT yesterday without so much as an advisory, so decided to treat it to a good clean today.

    Hand-washed with zip-wax car wash and rinsed.
    Clayed with Meguiars clay-bar.
    Snowfoamed with Magifoam and rinsed to get rid of clay residue.
    Chamois dried.
    Removed a few minor marks with Metallic T-Cut.
    Coat of Meguiars Gold Class Liquid Wax.
    Tyres done with Meguiars Endurance Tyre Gel.
    Inside thoroughly cleaned and hoovered.

    Comments welcome!

    (Sorry pics aren't the best, it was just a few quick shots taken on the iPhone)

    Cheers guys.

    I do like a black car when it's all nice and clean and shiny, but the upkeep on them is a nightmare. I was gutted when my wife insisted she wanted the CR-V in black, it's a big bus to look after. Mind you, was even more gutted when it only had 2,000 miles on the clock and some silly woman ran a red light and walloped right into the front corner of it!

    EDIT: And yes, it was very warm today, be fair to say I worked up a fair sweat getting the polish back off it!
