My god that looks nice Robbo1. Is that taken when it was new? Can't believe that is a 17 year old car.

Were there two colours of beige leather? I've always understood mine to be Lightstone but EVERY photo I see of other people's Lightstone leather looks much lighter than mine. I know mine could do with a clean but they don't look that dirty. Especially the back seats - the look practically new in terms of condition but still appear a bit darker than other Lightstone seats.

I've always wondered that. Just visible through the door (it's had a hard life from what I can tell though) -

I tried cleaning a plastic door panel 'properly' once - it looked like I'd bleached a patch, not sure what the original shade was, but the seats get cleaned with leather cream from time to time, they don't change from that milky-tea colour.

Yes a fair amount of time but I do enjoy detailing the car. Got to have it looking nice for the car shows we do with our local car club.

I used to go nuts cleaning my cars. Clay bars, multiple buckets, wash mitts, fancy polish, sealants, all sort of things for the interior.

I bought a dual action polisher and got the paint on my ST170 looking like a mirror. I'd take the seats out to clean under them, wheels off to clean the backs etc.

Then I found I didn't have the time to do it anymore. Found a girlfriend, then a kid came along etc. I really want to get back to doing things like that - I don't like looking at or sitting in a grubby car :(

I have more time as I’m an old bugger. Well we do see the kids and grand children a lot and I do work with my son. But I have the the weekends off so I have a bit of time. I do like to keep the car clean and also trying different waxes detailing sprays etc,

I bought the DA polisher because I took my car for an MOT at an Audi dealership my mate worked at. They "kindly" washed the car for me and left it looking like this:

It looked like this all over - like someone had gone at it with a brillo pad.

I've not yet used it on the P38 but this is how that scrubs up with just a wash and a wax:

Blimey, mine only got rid of the mud from the inside of the mudflaps from Marty's track after the radius arm weekend yesterday. That was only due to torrential rain through Belgium, Holland and half of Germany......

In an effort to make mine look 1/2 as good as Robbo's i've run it over with a DA with various compounds with varying sucess.
