    yes that is the approach that l took with mine as well and l take it back twice a year for full decontamination and ceramic top up makes maintenance washing a whole lot easier

    Twice a year? They only recommended one a year when I had mine done.

    yes they do but l do get mine done twice. once as we come out of winter and the summers go back on and then late October just before we go back into winter
    it is just me being lazy and getting somebody else to do all the hard work for me on the winter prep detail

    The lad used something like those and then went on to buff it all over.
    The wheels are going in to be done in ferric grey as soon as I get back working again

    and I agree black is awesome for the tome it’s actually clean

    (y)

    yeah, thats why my IS200 way back was the last black car I had, loved it, yet when i looked back to admire my handy work it was already dusty.
    Mrs Mc's Mini black roof drives me nuts.

    the flake in the paint really pops in the sunshine(y)

    the BMW ruby black is a nice colour that can look black in dull light and a deep red/burgundy colour in the sunshine
