Don't forget to get your pride and joy protected (waxed or sealant) for the coming months. It really will help keep the car in good condition. And no, your bottle of autoglym in the garage isn't good enough.

If you are one of the many who tucks up your car under a blanket until spring, make sure the car is thoroughly cleaned before you do so, especially on the older cars.

If you want to know what to use/do for your winter prep, just drop me an email.

I'm not advertising, but just in case I get banned for trying to help again, then I will see you in a week from the ban starting and I'll talk through one of the many lovely (piss taking) gentleman on here.

On this subject of protective winter motoring.... has anyone here got a carcoon? or an opinion on the outdoor variant? Generally when I get my car it will e kept in my parents lovely double garage however, there will be times when I'm in Reading and it'll have to live outside (my drumkit is in the garage with no extra room in the house)

An Autoglym paste wax or liquid wax will see you though the winter months no bother. If you apply now it'll still be there come spring time when the weather improves.

I have to disagree with the above post, but if you're happy with that, then who am I to argue.

My car's being "valeted and waxed" by Works Service on completion of some bodywork repairs. Will that be good enough for a few months do you think? Or should I get it re-done ...

You can't go wrong with Collonite 845 Insulator Wax, which should protect you paintwork for at least six months IMHO

If you'd got a nice bug shiny garage, yours would've been done by now, but with any luck, the nice dealership types will let me do the car there. Then at least it will have a fighting chance whilest under the tree and washed with the normal gritty sponge.

Stupid iPhone!

The great outdoors is the only garage and protection the car has. That and a Rottweiler the size of a pony!

Can you not get a car cover Nick? That's what I do because although I have a garage, it has stupid tiny doors that I could barely fit my Polo through grumpy
