Great looking car! Love those wheels (but they are a PITA to keep clean, yes?).

Thanks!

They are the same as the MK1 GT3 wheels ... a pricey option for the 01.

They actually are not that difficult to access and keep clean. Trick is not to let them get too dirty!

I bought a Meguires polisher a while back on ebay and finally put it to use on Fri on the LE. Clay bar, light compound to remove swirls, wax, and sealant. Four rounds of removing residue made me 1 tired puppy Fri night. But she looks like new!

If the first 3 steps provide 10hp, is the sealant worth an extra 5?
