Hi from Newcastle. Just got a S V6, loving it! Anyone got any suggestions for cleaning the grill and air vent trims?

Welcome kv13batt.
No tips from me, as not mine has not needed cleaning yet.
What colour, or post a photo, in case I see another V6 while visiting family in Newcastle in a few weeks. :shock:

Use an all purpose cleaner (APC) spray on, agitate with a soft brush and wash off with water.

Can't say I've ever had any great problem with keeping the grille and vents clean . . just waving the pressure washer wand at it from various angles seems to keep them sparkling, only using plain water too - my car doesn't even know what snow foam is, we never use it!

After a passage of time I have noticed there can be a build-up of green algae in some of the harder to reach places, such as around headlamp fittings, rubber window seals, even along windscreen wiper blades and in body panel joints, etc., so here's a practical tip: occasionally I use an old soft bristled toothbrush just dipped in a bucket of plain water and run it very gently along these to loosen any accumulations and then just spray off and wipe clean; it brings them back to as-new condition without any more effort than that.

Enjoy your new car - photos will of course be required! :D
