To ensure proper care, please observe the following:
Washing your vehicle
The best way to protect your vehicle against damaging environmental effects is regular washing and preservation. The longer grit, road and industrial dust, insect residue, bird excrement, tree secretion (e.g., resin, pollen), etc. remain on the vehicle, the more harmful their effect.
To ensure your car is cleaned thoroughly and the paintwork washed gently, please observe the following points:
Cleaning in the car wash
Add-on parts or parts that project beyond the contour of the vehicle may be damaged by design features of car washes.
To ensure your car is cleaned safely and thoroughly in the car wash, please observe the following table:
Automatic vehicle washes spray water at odd angles and high pressures, which are not seen in normal driving. Therefore, water can sometimes find its way into the passengers compartment during or shortly after the vehicle wash.
Dust particles on painted surfaces can damage the paintwork if not properly dealt with.
The matt effect of bodywork sections may be lost if not looked after properly.
The paint surface will dull over time due to weathering and should therefore be regularly protected with a paint preservative after washing the vehicle. This keeps the paint shiny and elastic, and prevents dirt from adhering to the paint surface and industrial dust from penetrating the paint.
