So this weekend I found some more time to play with the car. Firstly it was treated to a decent wash, albeit still no clay bar, polish or wax (that'll come later this month). Then came the Z3M mirrors, conveniently from an Estoril Z3M, and some overdue tyre shine. http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a...
