During the winter the car has only been cleaned by a high pressure cleaner (after a spray of soap foam). I was curious to see how it would look after a hand wash (bucket and sponge). It has been parked outside in the snow and driven on dirty roads with lots of salt.

Very pleased to find that all the dirt, including tar and asphalt spots, was easily removed using just the sponge and a mild soap. I gave it a professional detailing treatment including a ceramic coating (Gtechniq Crystal Serum) when we got the car one year ago, which seems to have worked very well.

Still looks like new 😎

The car looks fantastic after such a harsh winter, saw that thread you posted of it buried in snow. When you had the ceramic coating done, did they have to do any paint correction? Seems like a great investment.

They did do a paint correction first, even though the paint was in pretty good condition. Any flaws (swirls and scratches) would be very hard to correct after the ceramic coating is applied.

No fault in the paint jobb from factory was found.
