Maintaining my Audi A4: Things I do/have to take care of my car

I’m not a believer in getting my car scrubbed & washed daily. For stubborn stains, there’s the waterless Optimum No Rinse & Wash.

Upkeep… and then some more

The Audi genuine accessory Four Rings car cover greatly helped to keep the A4 protected from nature’s elements.

The car cover is made from a breathable and flexible material, and the reinforced edge provides a perfect fit for the cover to highlight the lines of the A4. The material is quite soft to handle, inside out.

When it comes to general upkeep, in the last 8 weeks since we got the car, it has been washed only 3 times. Not a believer in getting it scrubbed & washed daily. The daily gentle dusting is taken care of the good old Jopasu, both inside & outside with separate dusters.

And if there are some stubborn stains every now & then, then there’s the waterless Optimum No Rinse & Wash (ONR, popularly called) to the rescue.

For washing, have taken an AMC with Glosswerkz. Extremely satisfied with the way they have handled my A4. Went for the 3rd wash yesterday.

Overall it’s a very therapeutic feeling, I must say, to view the car getting cleaned.

And finally, that retro, vintage glam look:
