So, after a few requests, here are a few pics of my MCSD F55

Had it almost a month now and this weekend I treated the new family member to a double wash with snow foam followed by a polish and a wax with dod-wav orange crush. The dodo wax smells great, but it difficult to apply as it fades into the car's colour so quickly... particularly when you've been lazy and didn't start until 3pm on a winter sunday afternoon.

I also polished and sealed (with poorboys) my summer wheels which are now snug in their bags waiting for warmer weather.

I'm currently using standard loops (which I really like) for my winter tyres. Which incidentally have handled brilliantly in the small amount of snow and ice we've had recently.

Enjoy!

What's with the yellow caps on the black wheels when your wheels are silver?

Thanks for all your kind words peeps - really liking the car and I'm adamant I'll look after it.

As for the black wheels Donna - these are my summer tyres and wheels. I've gone for orange caps to link in the VO paintwork - reckon it'll look good!

Hey Sunster, great pics :)!

Just out of interest, are the wheel caps the yellow or orange option?

Thanks.

It's the orange ones. Neither are an exact match, but the yellow ones are a bit too acidic to really link with the VO (which in my op looks quite warm yellowy depending on the outside/ambient light.)
