Finally got a chance to clean and wax the R, I decided to use what I had in the garage so AG SRP, Collinite 476S and poor boys wheel Sealant. Happy with the results but I forgot what a pain wax can be to apply and buff by hand. 🤣

I think to myself, 'I need to have a change from a bloody white car' (being on my 3rd currently). Looks through this thread, decide that Lapiz blue is without doubt, definitely the colour to go for. 

And then I see a white one. 🤤🥰😁😭

A predisposition to liking white cars!  
 

I saw my very first local local 8R (apart from

my own) this morning at a city roundabout and that was white and looked wonderful.

I just can't help myself! 😆 I want to change - to be different and unpredictable. Really, I do. But then I see a white car, in all its glory - the dark trim and privacy glass contrasting beautifully against the polar finish; none of the design detail lost, like many dark colours; the joy of added camouflage of minor scratches and marring... And I'm back where I started! 😂🥴

PS. You need to start an online masterclass / workshop on 'Taking photos of your Golf', Rebecca. I have, literally, not seen one, even vaguely, average photo of your cars. You'd cover getting the right angles, filters, the lot. I will sign up! 🙋‍♂️😁

Thanks Rob, this very nice of you to say. 😊  I’m no photographer though, although I did used to go to the trouble of using a a decent DSLR camera years back but now just use my iPhone these days.  No filters used, as always like to show the reality of detailing in detailing related shots but the odd tweak of contrast etc.  I do have a background of art education (painting not photography) so some of the old artistic eye training must still be in there somewhere.  😀

😂  Who can argue with any of the those reasons to go white or stay white.  😄

 

I understand your plight.  😄  I finally made the break from buying black cars last years after 20+ plus years of them (4 being performance Golfs).  It was like breaking free of a cult.  I didn’t think I could do it and for ages when speccing my Mk8R my fingers dithered over the box to tick for yet another Deep Black Pearl Golf, but I thought enough was enough and Lapiz (which I’d almost specced on my previous mk7R but bottled it) got the tick.  I love it!  💙

20+ years of black cars? BLACK?! 😲 I've had to get my inhaler out just at the thought of that! The dirt, paintwork marks, lack of design detail... 😨

 

'Breaking free from a cult'... 😄. There should be relevant support groups available... "Hello, my name is Rob and it is been 6 weeks since I owned a white car"

Not even loads of filters used... That makes it even worse - that means there is actual talent in there!
