Do I hand wash?

Do I hand wash?

Postby Alanwarrocc3 » 31 May 2016, 07:08

Hi all I am due to be a proud owner of a 59 plate cc3 on Saturday have heard quite a lot about roof problems.
Can anyone tell me if this is indeed a cause of concern and what I can do to stop this happening.
Also is jet washing the cc okay or is it best to just hand wash?

Thanks alanwarrocc3

Hello all just a quick question for anyone out there picked up my 59 plate cc3 in Isis burgundy purple not a colour I would have chose but defo different.

Hi alanwarrocc3,
Congrats on your purchase - no matter what colour, they always look good when clean and sparkling - I ended up with the Argento Silver (which was my last choice), but still love the car. 100K just passed last week, and not a drop inside. :) Look after those roof seals - plenty of suggestions here as to how to keep them supple - and yes, avoid jetwashing. I've not put mine through the carwash, but others have - I think the ordinary auto carwash thingies don't have too powerful a jet.

Yes, the lights on the dashboard stay on for about 10-15 minutes after locking / leaving the car. Makes a lot of people comment whe they first get their CC :lol:

Enjoy the summer :D

I have jet washed my CC a few times mainly to remove crap from under the wheel arches. I mainly wash it by hand on a regular basis.

I jet wash my car all the time and I haven't had any issues with it.
