properely wash 996

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to wash a 996. What I am concerned about applys to all new cars and newly painted cars but should be useful to all anyhow. What I want to avoid are the swirl marks that occur over time when washing a car. (Mine is black and I can really see the marks) Since it will be painted soon, i want to avoid the marks from occurring again. so - what is the best "wash" method to use. Thanks

For 40 cents a gallon, I use reverse osmosis (clean drinking) water, to avoid water spots, of course. about 5-8 gallons will do it. after lightly using a dust brusher to get any gritty stuff off, then a pouring of one bucket of water, then wash it with a little bit of good car wash soap in a half bucket and a clean white cotton t-shirt, then rinse it off with another bucket and another clean white cotton t-shirt, then dry it with the best cleanest chamois I can find in the cabinet. but I'm a newbie and this is my first Porsche, a dunkelblau '99 996 C2. I'm in love.
