    Having had mine cleaned by the dealer prior to collection . Never again.
    Went elsewhere to remove all the marks and added a gtechniq ceramic coating afterwards.
    Dealer has agreed to foot the bill for the damage which is good . Sticker on the dash moving forward to say DO NOT CLEAN.
    Maybe a bit OCD but I would rather have a dirty van than let other people wash it.

    Just had mine coated with the Williams ceramic coating and a top layer of wax for a nice shine. The coating is supposed to last 3 years and the wax re done every 6 months. Have to say it looks better than when I collected it 12 months and 27k miles ago. Beaded up lovely in the rain today.

    Getting better at this foam lark and getting me detailing skills better. I have only done me van twice from new as this time of year i find it pointless with the sh@t that's on the roads. Keep washing can do more damage than good especially if it not done right and im no expert. I had a good coating put on it when it was new to help protect the paint so when the better weather comes it should still be a good finnish.

    White does look great when it's clean though!

    Jeez @StudleyGlass what have you washed it with, you've turned it golden! That must be some pretty awesome shampoo, either that or your middle name is Rumplestiltskin.
