    I've done about 800 miles so far. Even though it's the same car really, it feels completely different. Feels more responsive, sharper, the brakes are much better (I didn't have BBK on the last one). The exhaust actually sounds half decent for a stock exhaust. I heard it for the first time before when out of the car and it does sound good! It can still be improved though ;-)

    Is it a 'mud bar' opposed to a clay bar?

    Why isn’t the Dirty Car White? As @theoldboy has said his does look like it will win dirtiest car.

    The Clean Car is Blue as it represents imo the OCD detailing groups outlook on cars.

    I feel as if you’re not putting as much effort into the dirty car as you are the clean car

    Are you biased towards clean cars

    Well I think it's hit a nerve haha

    I'll give you my reasoning, I hope it helps lol The car came in Red and I only have a White Primer so no base coats lol So it's either another Blue car which isn't going to happen lol or red as it came...

    I feel that I need to mention that this colour choice by no means describes the blanket of the colour on here lol

    So in other words this dirty car doesn’t merit the work that you’ve done on the clean car
