Pollen Woes

Don't know how many of you are experiencing this, but came out to this in the parking lot today (it was fairly clean 12 hours prior)...

This crap is really bad in Germany. Starts right about now... And with our black cars, this is unfortunate. My clean car OCD will be on OD.

i am totally pissed about this. I had to park one of my car outdoor for couple of hours and the car looks just like that now. I am going to have to wash the whole car down. But on the positive note, i will strip everything off and do complete swissvax system on it. Which i have been meaning to do but now forced to do.

The closest solution that has worked for me but still sucks as it takes time. One of the cars have OptiCoat. When this happens all i have to do is rinse the car off.

All in all as others have said - welcome to Spring time.

meh, it doesn't bother me too much. I just get the car washed every now and then. I don't see the point in going overboard in being OCD with car cleanliness and detailing during pollen season. After all, it's just going to get covered again.

Pollen season happens every year. It should come as no surprise. Resist nature all you want....

Thank goodness I have a garage.

Sucks, but not much can be done about it. Just think of it this way though, it's early this year.....get it over and done with now rather than later.

i breathe that in everyday, I start the day with a horse throat with all the sneezing.

All that is pretty easy to wash off, you just need to rinse the car, it won't stick.
