Washed the Saab today... (not dial-up friendly)

I'm not sure what it means that I washed the wagon before I washed the M3.

Still, as I haven't taken many pics of the Aero, here are a few...

Headlight *wipers* too? I didn't think anyone was putting those on anymore. Interesting.

Looks nice. I don't mind a little tire dressing, as long as it doesn't sling off all over the place.

Okay, I sucked it up and decided to do a quick washdown of the M3 as well (I washed the convertible two weekends ago and it hasn't really moved since).



For bonoboy:

Before-

After-



All done...

Both cars look very sharp!

I just cleaned my 330i and it looks showroom new, but I wont post any pics since you guys have seen enough. My winter wheels did suffer a few slight battle scars from this winter.

if your have fits about wheel balancing weights on the outside of the wheel......wait until you see typical british paint quality on your elise.

holy $h*t.

that is some funny stuff. i should have expected that from you.

now only you have to worry about is buildup of wax resdiue at the interface of the un-armourfended paint and the protected paint.

:-P
