Not a lot today other than a trip to the station but I must admit every time I go out of the house I have a smile on my face as I go to get in to drive it!!

Can't wait.

I hope you started to think about getting paint protection if that's something you'll be interested in since getting it done right after taking delivery gives you the best case scenario. Some guys take it to their detailer on the day of delivery, some wait weeks after.

Keep us posted on when it arrives.

My Prestige-trim XE is camera shy, so no photos. But it’s British Racing Green, and in my opinion needs to be kept super clean in order to get the full effect of how the color changes in the changing light.

Once every six months I take the contaminants off the paint, mirrors, windscreens and moonroof glass with a clay bar and Griot’s Speed Shine, use a really old citrus-based cleaner to strip the residue off leeboards and aluminum wheels. Then once dry, I seal the paint with Nufinish polish, apply Mother’s Plastic Polish to the door mirror covers, plastic pillar trims, Blade-antenna Pitot, and headlamp lenses. A fine glass polish is used on the moonroof glass.

The entire process is done over a two day period, take my time, no rushing to break any schedules.

That was my activity this weekend… Shined so glossy, I thought Morpheus, Trinity and Neo were gonna use it in their next Matrix movie.

Drove about 20 minutes into my commute this morning---and got splashed by filthy water pouring down from some construction work on an overpass,… had a robin try to BOMB me with what comes out his back end (yeah, the worm he ate must have had Exlax in it).

And all this week will be on and off showers in NY.
Not the glorious rain that turns into a thousand sparkling jewels on freshly-treated paint. But the kind of smog-blown rain that just leaves grey spots all over your car.

On the bright side, with the polish you painstakingly applied to your Xe, the grime should just slide right off with a quick rinse or clean before looking new. THat's some dedication I don't have when it comes to car detailing.

I can only imagine how upset I would be especially after putting in all of that work! Do you also clay bar it once every six months? With all that prep and sealants and wax put into it, I doubt it would need much after a 6 month period of time... of course depending on how often you wash it for maintenance and what not

Well, it's good to know that you will be able to keep it secret. I think it's really an exceptional one. To be honest, I'm curious about it
