Looking after cosmetics

I was wondering what you guys are doing to look after the cosmetics of your pride and joy?

My wife is a little ruff and tumble when it comes to looking after some things, and the new M3 is proving no different.

Foot scrape marks on door sill already not even two months old , also new bout of gutter rash.

Just after tips and tricks to try and keep the second love of my life looking the best.

Look forward to your help.

cheers
Stilly

Don't talk to me about gutter rash... she's a good driver, takes care of the car, but there isn't a gutter in Brisbane that hasn't been molested by my wheels

Garage List
2014 BMW X5 30d  [0.00]
2007 E92 M3  [0.00]
I've had mine since November 2007, and I can count the number of times my wife has driven the car. She's scared to drive given my list of conditions (e.g. where she can park etc.).

Well just continue to let her drive it into the ground then!

I'm not sure what you're asking in the original post? Your missus negligent damages your car, either dont let her drive it, or train her to stop being a lazy human/bad driver??
