Gave mine a thorough vacuum and dust inside to finally get the horrors of having collected our Christmas tree in it from a muddy farm... The outside may well still be bogging having had no attention since November but I can ignore that, get in, annnnnnd relax :smiley:

Bet that feels better inside at least!

Mine’s still not been done inside or out, it’s now deep matte grey.

Some people pay a lot of money to spec a matt grey!

My DBP Amarok is that colour at the moment too. Tomorrow things may have to change.

I'm hoping to get around to cleaning mine tomorrow too. If I can be bothered. Strange thing is that although it is pretty filthy, it still shines under good lighting and looks cleaner in my work carpark than most of my colleagues' cars.

Did mine today as it was a nice dry day and not too cold (for January, anyway); 3 hours effort to get it looking nice and clean again. It won’t stay looking that way for long though!

It’s going very well thanks. Second service is due in just over a month, and I have my ‘Do not wash this car’ mirror hanger ready so the dealer doesn’t inflict the free complimentary swirls. :grin:
