When I was asked by our utilities saleswoman to clean her car.

I expected her 2003-4 Audi A4 cabrio.

Opened my bedroom blind this morning to see a 2017 2.0 diesel BMW X5.

But wait for it. It’s had some, er, well decals applied.

First things first.

Walk around.

Started with the engine as the rain was spitting so thought I’d do that and then see what the weather was going to do (needless to say, it’s still spitting).

Before.

Cleaned.

Dressed.

Wheels done, car degreased and then snow foamed.

Washed, pressure rinsed, snow foamed with sealant and pressure rinsed (not been able to dry as the weather, as said, is still spitting).

Exhaust tips polished and loads of nooks and crannies cleaned out.

Finished, or finished as far as can be while it’s still spitting.

The piggy bank with coins decals aren’t my thing, but hey, not my car
