Hi guys,

Just got a new C30 R-Design, very sweet!! Can anyone advise a basic step by step method for a basic regular car wash and what stuff to do on a more periodic basis? What products available in Australia are best to use on a new volvo car. Sorry for being a bit of a newbie...............but yeah, well that is what I am, never owned a new car before and want to get started in the right way with the most suitable products.

Thanks in advance

Start at the top (you would be surprised by how many people ignore that).
If you have a hosepipe, clean the worst of the dirt off.
Use a big sponge or cloth and warm, soapy water (don't get belief on proprietary cleaners, they're a waste of money - washing up liquid is good).
If you're being really thorough, open the doors and clean the sills.
Try to clean with water, it's not as streaky as cold.
You can dry it with a chamois leather but if you clean properly you'll only need to do the windows.
If you drop your sponge, make sure you get any grit out before you slap it back on to your shiny paint.
