JULES’ BMW 335i

RUN THE HOT WA­TER, GET THE SHAM­POO OUT AND PRE­PARE THE TOW­ELS. YES, IT’S TIME FOR MY AN­NUAL CLEAN…

No, not me. I shower ev­ery­day (well, most days any­way). I am of course talk­ing about my E92. And to be fair, I wash her a lot more than once a year. It would be crim­i­nal not to. But I do like to have one massive an­nual clean­ing ses­sion, where ev­ery­thing gets a good old-fash­ioned spit and pol­ish. And as it’s the de­tail­ing spe­cial there is no bet­ter time to get stuck in. To cel­e­brate this I de­cided to treat my­self to a new de­tail­ing kit and some high qual­ity mi­crofi­bres from the gods that are Meguiar’s, which should see me through the 2017 show sea­son and be­yond.

Meguiar’s have one of the largest prod­uct line ups in the busi­ness, and it just got big­ger with their new Mir­ror Bright range (see page 54 for more info). I wanted to give this stuff a go, mainly be­cause of the cool brand­ing, but also be­cause I know it’ll work per­fectly. It’s Meguiar’s af­ter all.

Other jobs this month in­clude fit­ting some new, pressed-metal plates and re­plac­ing the front drop link (cheers Midge), as it had worked its way loose and threaded the bolt.

Keep­ing it clean

Yes, it did bloody rain the mo­ment we had fin­ished the valet! Typ­i­cal

New drop links are al­most as shiny as…

… Midge’s per­fectly round head

Good work, Jules. (Hold on...)
