    I drove through a huuuuuge mud puddle on way home last weekend and took a diversion via the local hand wash place just to get the most of it off.

    I completely forgot about the sticker at the time until I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the pressure washer approaching.

    happily enough, the sticker is still well and truly in place :)

    Well, I'll see how it holds up. I realised this morning that because I have the external one, my rear windscreen wiper now catches it with every pass. If it comes off, I'll get a new one and go for the lower-right of the rear window outside of the wipers arc.

    They stick pretty well me thinks! I didn't hold back when I pressure washed it so i'm happy

    You still using Avalanche? I don't find it sticks to the car very well, I wonder if I'm getting the ratios right...

    I haven't even got onto the avalanche yet... that's the free autobrite one (well, free with the lance). Can't work out, is + on the lance more foam or more water?

    Haha I'm so glad it's not just me... I saw white foam coming out so I just left it lol mines on full + currently... It would be more ideal if it wasn't as watery as next doors car isn't that far away... I haven't got time to clean theirs as well...

    I use the AutoBrite stuff and it’s a nice covering I get. I must have my lance set just right

    Needed to make sure I had front n back stickers for the photos today. Ok, @Jimbobcook how's my positioning? Keeping in mind, I wanted it to be in a different place to yours!!! LOL!

    It's off centre but straight, acceptable.

    Did the front look weird for a while lol I'm only just used to mine.

    :dance: Yeah, I would have liked it centered. But the support for the splitter is in the way.

    I'm still thinking "I wish I could have it in the center" LOL.

    Can you not just fit it in? It's hard to know when you have to judge it because of the backing paper.

    Now it's on I doubt you'll get it off very easy lol its gone through 2 big washes

    Yeah, in hindsight, it may have fit. But, after the 5 hours washing the car, the light was fading and I had to get it on quick. So thats sticker #2. Wonder what the interior one would look like in the front A!? How many you got on yours now?

    If you want to move it I would do it soon although you've waxed now so maybe not a good idea...

    I have 2 spare external stickers left... I may get the white one on the rear diffuser or something then I have a red one left I think... no more internal ones... may have to get some ordered

    Sticker #3. So stupid question, are the internal ones some kind of transparent friction thingy or am I supposed to remove the transparent bit and leave the lettering like the external ones?
