Took wheels of gave them full clean and decon
Sealed and refitted.
Also did brake calipers.

With the valve in the 6 o clock position, the VW badge should be the right way up.  :wink: Now get those wheels off, and sort it out.

Doh! I knew something didn't look right, I'll go and do it now :whistle:
I actually noticed you can get centre caps with a red circle like they fit on clubsport, I thought they would look good with the tornado red...... then I saw the price £100 for 4!!

No need to pay that much. Look here - https://www.kunzmann.de/shop/en/wheels-wheel-hub-cap-chrome-red-vw-golf-7-genuine-volkswagen.htm - still a bit pricey but better :smiley:

Good to see you put the vw inline with the valve at 6 o'clock, some people might pick up on that :rolleyes:

It's all about the detail, and this is the detailing section after all.

A half-decent day yesterday, sunny and not too cold, so the car received a wash with Gyeon Bathe+, dried off with my BigBoi dryer, wheels treated with Poorboys wheel sealant, tyres with GTechniq Tyre and Trim, black external trim with Auto Finesse Dressle and windows with Stoners Invisible Glass.

A cathartic experience after the rubbish weather of the last month or so.
