ALLROAD detailing questions...

Congrats on the allroad!

For the bumpers and fender trim, I'd go with something like Vinylex or
303 Protectant,
test somewhere inconspicuous first to see how it goes.

I like Lexol for leather- the cleaner and the conditioner, use both to
keep the leather
nice. Helps to have the car hot when you apply- summertime is always
good for that. Apply
in excess, let it sit for a few hours, then wipe clean with a clean
cotton towel.

If the roof is not waxable, maybe Vinylex for it as well- has some UV
inhibitors to keep
plastic in decent shape, not as greasy as Armor-All.

Subject: ALLROAD detailing questions...

I need some tips on detailing my new Allroad. It seems this car defies
typical logic when itcomes to keeping it clean.

#1 The paint will get Maquires, but what about that flat black roof?
What to use there? Dealer said no wax!

#2 how about the plastic, flat black bumpers and fender trim? I'm not
worried about keeping it clean, just keeping it protected and pretty.

#3 I've never had a decent car with leather before, what's the trick
crap to keep it nice?

Thanks in advance!!!
