Hi both. Basically a really really good clean and detail and ceramic coating. With my circumstances of living in London, then I dont have access to a garage. With my previous car, a 944T, I found that a car cover (an expensive one from https://www.specialisedcovers.com/ ) actually did more harm than good to the paint work. With autumn/winter coming I figured rather than a car cover for the R, I would do ceramic coating. I am aware of the pros and cons, but for my circumstances, I'm giving the R the best chance it can have I guess. Thats all I can do. Richard was kind enough to allow me to view his R before I bought my one (in same Basalt Black), as I was having pre-purchase jitters and wanted to see one in real life closer to home before travelling all the way to buy mine. Seeing his clinched it in my mind to go ahead and buy my one. His is epic huh. The condition of mine is pretty darn good I'd say (it was wrapped in blue for many years which probably helped keep it in shape) ... so I think it will be lite touch prior to ceramic coating...but I am no subject matter expert on detailing. I'd like to do a car cover, but i fear it will do more harm than good in the long run. Best regards Julian PS yep on subsequent washes. I have been watching videos on advice for that. I did use https://www.swankwash.com/ but now getting an outside tap sorted so I can do it myself! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
