    Hi

    Probably a daft question but is my lovely little Copen going to be ok in a car wash? I know it's lazy but I'm a busy bee!

    Thanks:)

    I thought the handbook advised against using an automatic car wash. Can't find it though.
    Your better off going to a hand wash place.

    hopefully soon a new grey copen!
    from experience - the car paint is not exactly the strongest stuff around - I would advise getting it hand washed and not using pressure washers!

    And it's so small even Mrs Badger can clean it without using a stepladder/cherry picker. Just rub it over with a flannel :D

    I did it once not long after having the car and its actually false economy from my experience. The car being so narrow didn't get cleaned on one side. yes the brushes touch but only just and more tickled it. The wheel bushes didn't reach either.

    Every time I try to rub her down it seems to rub her up the wrong way :eek:

    I love this thread! "Oo Matron" comes to mind! :eek:
