Washing Night

So, as some of you may know, I bought my RCZ R end of May with a mileage of 32500km. Now, it has 38000km after a few runs in the Swiss Alps and generally using it as a daily.
The paint was in quite a poor condition from the previous owner, so I had my R detailed and the results were really stunning.

Since then, I have washed my car regularly and been careful to use the right methods in order to keep it clean of scratches.

For the past few days, I haven't had the time to wash my car and so the dirt and insects really had time to gather but I went for a clean up just now. Man, this car is just stunning. We are a lucky bunch of people to be owning such a beauty!:D

Sorry, the pictures are all a bit dark. They were all taken with my phone, but I'm planning on having a serious shoot someday soon.

Cheers everyone and have a good week ahead.

And yet another washing night. I somehow end up taking photos at night most of the time. Gotta get some more day shots. I went for a ride in the Alps, where the R's potential comes to light. Getting it around curves is just amazing. Feels like it's on rails. And yet, my previous owner had some Toyo Sport tires mounted, which I will replace with the Goodyear Eagle F1s next season. So, I'm sure there's more I can get out of this beauty.😊

Looking great.

My R had Continental Sport Contact 5 when I bought it. They were also 96Y. Once worn out I went for the correct Goodyear F1 92Y.

They are softer and don't feel as good.

Michelin Pilot 4S get positive reviews from a lot of people. Don't get mixed up the the 4.

I have those on my 200GT. I’ve had it 7 years now, and tried various makes, but always top brands.
The Michelin are probably the best I’ve had.

The Michelin 4S will give you stupid levels of grip on the R. And low wear off. And they work beautifully in wet as well.
You can also give the newest GoodYear Assymetric 5 a chance. Those GYs should provide a bit better damping over bumps compared to the Michelins. But if you only ride on great roads, then go for the Michelin 4S.

Alright thank you guys, really appreciate your help. Some roads in the Alps are quite bumpy but I think I might still go for the Michelin Sport 4S. Certain bumps won't be damped even by the most forgiving tires and suspensions. :)

You can run those PS4s on just 2.0 bar (29 PSI) front. Won't hurt them as the RCZ R is lightweight. And it improves damping.
