Same type of journey , also clean the lights , can't say I clean the plates in the week, maybe the alloys more often than normal because of the salt......Ive given up trying to clean mine. I do 60 miles a day on the motorway so its pointless. I clean it one day and its filthy again a day later. All I do now is clean the lights and plates.
Here's me thinking the reservoir on the Golf was huge. I've yet to have it run out on me and I don't re-fill that regularly.Also why, if the wipers have to be used so often, is the reservoir so pathetically small. My Rover's reservoir was over 6 liters in capacity (think it was 8 litres, actually). Poor design I think?
No, the capacity of my Rover was 6 litres. I believe the capacity of the Golf (mine, anyway) is about 3.5 litres, so it is rather mean especially for a car which demands so much use of it.
You are correct. It is do with the how upright and how flat the back of the car is. As a Focus is more angled at the rear, less dirt sticks to it as there is less of a (tail) vacuum being created at speed. The same vacuum, again at speed, is bigger on the Golf. This has been pretty much the case on most marks of Golfs.I'll probably get kicked for being wrong, but I'm sure someone once said it's to do with how upright and flat the back of the car is. The rounder it is, the more stuff that gets sucked around te back of the car sticks to it.
As the mk5 is "cutely rounded" (dont ask, quote from a girl I know ) - more sticks to it.
What took a week in my mk4 has taken 2 days on the mk5... I'm not the hugest fan of car washing so naturally I'm not happy lol
