Haven't seen you in a while!

Just stand further back, looks great then  :tongue: :cool:

Haha that is definitely the answer! Cosmetic things will get sorted in time, mechanical stuff more important as obviously I do a lot of miles and depend on it.

Wow, still looking amazing, and on 150k miles? :smiley:

Yeah just over 150,500 miles now. It looks good in these pics but they flatter it. It definitely is showing it's age in certain places now. The Monzas are badly white wormed again now after they were refurbed in 2014. The front bumper and bonnet have stone chips galore and some of the lacquer is peeling on the front bumper. In addition to this it's still got scratches from where it's been hit while parked on tight roads in the UK and in Italy, a dirty football or something has bounced off the bonnet and left it's mark, and there are car park dings from careless people at the supermarket. Apart from that it looks good haha!

Well it looks great for a scrapper!! My MK7 looked great but there were plenty of stonechips and a few odd dings too.

Can't believe it's been nearly 2 years since getting the GTI - how time flies

Due to the current crisis and working from home for the last 3 weeks, I just haven't had the time to give it a good clean. It's actually been 6 weeks since the last wash (I know shameful), but last weekend with the good weather, I managed to give it a good bath and decontaimination with Autosmart Tardis, Iron-X, followed by a good mild clay.

Then applied Dodo Juice Lime prime with a DA, then two coats of Dodo Juice Purple Haze also with the DA. Pretty pleased with it overall, and the 19" alloys are still looking very smart with no white work or kerb damage at all.

Still waiting on my new pressure washer & foam gun so just had a couple of buckets to work with but seeing as the sun was out & I had a day off work it got a quick basic clean using poorboys super slick & suds pH neutral car wash & stoner invisible glass. Didn't travel anywhere for scenic photos so just have to crappy ones from my driveway. Also one from couple of days ago parked beside a colleagues Transporter camper.

Last monday I gave mine a wash followed by a light DA polish with Auto Glym SRP topped off with Bilt Hamber Double Speed Wax. Rain we've had today has brought out some nice beading.

^^^ I love a nice beading shot, that looks good.

I've just rinsed the dust off of mine, again.  It's been seven weeks since I last filled up with fuel, the car has just been sitting under cover and doing a few short local journeys, so I have occasionally plugged my CTEK battery conditioner in to keep the battery topped up. 

One day the madness will end.

Car has been with dealer the last 7 days getting paint correction & prepared for modesta ceramic coating which is due to start tomorrow. Took it out front of his garage this afternoon to inspect it in sunlight & I couldn’t believe it. Can’t wait to see how it looks when finished.
The wheels, callipers, inside wheel arches & front grille are ceramic coated just this morning. This guys attention to detail is crazy!
