Hi all, anyone got any help on cleaning a new Candy Red Focus TX. I usually go to my local hand car wash, but I am thinking the car is only 3 weeks old so do I need to be doing anything different to the Candy Red paintwork i.e. polish/wax,what types.

Any help would be appreciated

P.s Can't fault the car yet!!!! (2.0L powershift diesel, driver assist, privacy, 18"alloys)

Hi, I hand wash mine with a sheeps wool mitt using Simoniz car wash, rinse it with a hose then dry it using a microfiber cloth. If it needs a wax I apply Auto Glym's Aqua Wax before drying as this can be used on black trim as well. This is the same method I used on my 'Tango' Mondeo...

Ive used this Turtlewax enduracoat kit [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TURTLE-WAX-POLISH-Enduracoat-12-months-protection-/230698548962?pt=UK_Car_Accessories_Car_Care_Cleaning&hash=item35b6b47ee2"]Click Here[/url] for my car,
its a great kit brings out the shine and comes with a case to store all your cleaning equipment,

also Since your model is candy red you may also like these custom controls mate [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170729682920?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%3A80%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp4712.m570.l1313%26_nkw%3D170729682920%26_sacat%3DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1"]Click Here [/url]B)

Hi, that Turtle wax is good just for the box alone, however those heater controls are not for the Mk3 TX.
