Hi All,

Time to introduce myself, and show off the new pride and joy. I've recently picked up my brand new 1.4T Capital LE in white and have been loving it! What a cracking little car, especially compared to my old fiat panda!

Little bit about myself, I'm a 20 something year old student doing a BEng in Motorsport Engineering.

Look forward to getting stuck into the forum and falling more in love with the car. Hope the picture has uploaded on down below.

Looking really smart, and nice colour. If you need any tips or hints on detailing and keeping it in top shape then just send a message.

Thanks guys! Ghoman, sounds good. I've really wanted to get into detailing properly but up to now havent had a car worth spending money on proper cleaning stuff and the time. I'm waiting for a pressure washer to come and get some snow foam to give it that first wash. White is beautiful but man does it get dirty quick! Nice VXR btw!

Ironically, Black cars show dirt more than a white car..

i think silver is the best colour for not showing the dirt

Nice looking car!

Had black, red, white, silver and blue cars and I agree silver is the easiest as it doesn't show all the muck so fast. Black was a [email protected] to clean and keep clean

This is why I'd never have a black car! It would drive me mad every time it got the smallest amount of dirt on it! My Ibiza is white snd still looks clean when it's filthy. I only realise how dirty she was when she's been washed! The E is gonna be shiny rock!

My limelight green is a great colour for not showing dirt. Even covered in filth after 2K miles of driving she still looks vaguely clean, certainly doesn't look dirty like many colours. It always amazes me how much filth comes off when I wash her because she doesn't look that dirty. :)
