you recently changed the cabin filter too didnt you?

our altea suffered from this but after fitting a charcoal filter it went away.





i washed mine yesterday too - its been living on the drive all week and actually been getting used :shocked: so was due a clean.

found a golf ball next to my car too so think some little sh!t has been up to no good - a small mark on the front wing polished out no problem though :wink:

Noticed that a dog had p1ssed on two of the wheels.

It's due a clean this weekend as it's been living outside for the last month as my garage has been full of the Mk2. I can't see me getting round to driving that, so will probably take it back to my parents house meaning I can start pampering the 6 again.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

seriously considered giving it a good clean... did not materialize in the end as it's been 30 degrees down here for a couple of days now so lost my appetite in the end :whistle:
Next: looking forward to next-gen GTI, probably not 4 baby seats though :)

It's done this from day one. I just have to clean the screen regular as its like looking through fog when the sun hits it.

I should have washed mine mine but was lazy and went to do some sorting of my workshop instead. Mine got stone rashed on Tuesday and I have noticed a few chips on the bonnet off it.

Spent ages scrubbing the brake calipers as I noticed they were a bit dirty the other day when I had a puncture repaired.


What do you guys use to clean the honeycomb bits on the front. Can't get mine 100% clean using a small brush.

Prior to that a couple dozen warmed over VWs

Small soft child's toothbrush works ok.  Have used small detailing brushes which were next to useless, but life's too short to worry about getting it 100% clean  :laugh:
