A DAY IN THE BAY!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS

A day in the bay? What does that mean? A day in the detailing bay at Meguiar’s Belgium, a full day of spa welness for a car. Does that sounds a bit more familiar? When I arrived the car wasn’t really dirty as it’s been sunny and dry for over the last month in Belgium. It only had some minor dust on it so we didn’t need to go for the heavy wash. Although we started with the wheels, as you would start every wash of your car.

Let us be clear, this whole blogpost is not an ad, as you guys know I just love to support great brands and the people behind it. I do know Sven (owner of Meguiar’s Belgium) for over 13 years now and we’ve done many great things together. We both come a long way and the Meguiar’s products are just amazing. This is the brand that I’ve been using forever on all my cars, if something is great, there’s no need to change it. We started with this Ultimate Wheel Cleaner, just spray it on and let the product do his work. The products starts working and brake dust is coming off, you’ll see the product becoming purple.

With the Meguiar’s wheelbrush, it’s easy to clean the whole wheel behind the spokes!

Time to rinse!

Once the wheels are rinsed with the jetwash, it’s time to snow foam the car! As you guys know I really like snow foaming cars, it makes cleaning so much easier and safer when it comes to swirls and scratches!

And yes, it’s just so instafriendly when your car is fully foamed and white!

This Meguiar’s Ultimate Snow Foam is just released and I’m really loving it! In the past I used the yellow Ultimate wash & wax shampoo with hot water. It wasn’t really cost effective but it sure did the job – haha!

After snowfoaming it, it’s time to wash the car. By using the bucket with gritt guard and the Meguiar’s wash mitt, you eliminate the chance of swirls pretty much.

And this folks is why I’m here, the famous swirls and scratches which every car has…

On photo they seem rather small but the in real life they are a pain in my eye!

This is the product range that will make any paint into showroom condition again.  You start of with the compound, polish and finish with a layer of wax. As my paint wasn’t matte or dull by age, we had enough with only the compound and wax.

This Correction Compound does the magic!

As I already completed the full course of “professional” detailer a few years ago Sven refreshed my memory on how to work with the Dual Action Polisher and how safe it is to use.

With the correct products and know-how you really can’t do anything wrong. Some people still think you can polish through the paint or clear coat but not with the Meguiar’s Dual Action. It’s actually fun to do and it’s even more fun when you see the difference when you finished a panel.

After polishing the whole car (about 6 hours later with 2 people) it’s time put on the wax. We applied it with the Dual Action too! Waxed a whole car in just 15 minutes!

And finished the small corners with a manual application pad.

Time to let the wax cure and have a little BBQ – Jummy!

Once the wax is been taken off and the car is been detailed a last time with a ‘Last Touch’ spray, you can really see the difference of what a full day of work did (with 2 people that is). No more swirls, no more scratches and a deep gloss and amazing metallic.

It’s almost scary to drive the car now as it’s so perfect now! Be sure to check out my latest vlog to see some video of the whole process. If you like to have your own day at the Meguiar’s Belgium bay, it’s possible! Get in touch with the Meguiar’s Belgium guys and have fun!

Dubai 2019

by admin on / BLOG, LIFESTYLE, TRAVEL

As summer holidays were just so far away we decided to go on a little trip to Dubai with the 4 of us. That’s me, Margaux, Kevin & Elien. Departing from Brussels airport to Dubai International with a direct flight of 6h30 with Emirates, perfect as it is!

Arriving to our hotel and seeing this view, our trip couldn’t start any better to be honest! It’s better to spend a bit more on a good room/hotel as otherwise you’re stuck with a boring grey concrete building view when you’re on the balcony of your hotel – nobody likes that, right?

And as it was 36 degrees during the evening/night, we couldn’t wait to jump in our pool at the hotel!

As the G63 AMG is Margaux her favourite car, we decided to rent this boxy brick to tour around Dubai and get some cool shots with it. To be honest I was suprised by the power of this square shaped metal box with a V8 engine in it! Makes me want one even more here in Belgium!

Views in Dubai never disappoint and putting up the drone didn’t either! The skyline of this metropolis city of Dubai is just on another level, I’ve been to many places but Las Vegas doesn’t even comes close. I just love this place and his atmosphere, the luxury and new buildings motivate me a lot.

Quick desert trip with the G63 and these guys! We almost felt how it was to be walking on Mars! I guess it has the same sand texture and temperatures – haha! 44 Degrees in the desert was kinda hot but the pictures turned out amazing!

Of course we couldn’t miss out on doing some ByMargaux photos! Ps: Go check out here latest pieces in the collection!

Of course we did some pictures for my Kevve-Inc collection too! Got some exciting news coming soon on that by the way!

The G was so sick to drive in Dubai, it’s really G-wagon heaven! In our private garage at the hotel were I think 20 G-wagons, I kid you not! When you drive around the city you spot G-wagons everywhere you look, it’s just crazy! As it was ramadam when we were in Dubai, there weren’t too many supercars around as during the ramadam they aren’t allowed to showcase their rich lifestyle and should stay sober.

Always wanted to go up on the top of the Burj Khalifa and this is what the view is from the 126th level. Pretty insane is an understatement! Next time we’re doing this by day!

I’m so happy I could show my princess this amazing city and we’re already planning the next trip to Dubai & Abu D’habi, the countdown has started but first the Italy roadtrip up next!

Made this pretty long vlog for you guys too, it gives you a better insight in the whole Dubai happening! Enjoy!

Worthersee 2019

by admin on / BLOG, CARS, TRAVEL

You guys know that I love my roadtrips! The trip down to Worthersee, Austria is always in the agenda, for the 11th year now! As the GTI treffen is held there and I just love the atmosphere in Velden Am Worthersee it’s just a trip I can’t miss. Driving it with this fun thing makes it even more fun to be honest, as I told you already before with the Monaco roadtrip, the M4 is the ultimate driving machine, even for a 1150km trip one way!

And yes of course I got my sexy co-pilot with me so she can eat some miles too with the M4! It was actually the first time I sat in the back of my own car – ha! Letting those girls sit in the front was just a cool sight, you should have seen all the looks on people face when passing by!

This photo is always on my to-do list when I come down to the Worthersee event… the background is just so sick! We always have breakfast here as it’s a chill place with proper food!

On the Alpenstrasse there’s something going on… The top parking seems to be converted into the local gummi-platz and I’m not even mad!

 

Whoops! Kevin made me do it to be honest, I felt bad about doing those donuts! In the end, it was fun tho and got some cool video and photo footage of the donut!

When we had enough of the cars it was time to chill at the pool, with a sun around giving us 26 degrees we couldn’t wished for a better weather…

You know why I love that whole Worthersee atmosphere so much right now…? This tell a lot!

No better way to park the car than at the front entrance of your hotel!

And waking up to this view was pretty amazing! I forgot to take pictures of the hotel room but there’s some footage from in the vlog. (video on the end of this post)

I love my meat, and this rumsteak with garlic was just on another level, so good!

The M4 handles the curvy mountain roads so good, it’s amazing! This picture almost looks like a painting to me, I’m pretty sure I will be watching this photo over and over again when I miss Worthersee!

The roadtrip was even more fun with the 102 fuel which I found in some fuel stations! The M loves that!

BOMBER JACKETS ARE HERE!

by admin on / BLOG, LIFESTYLE

The merchandising is growing pretty well as you can see! And as I’m a big fan of bomber jackets, I decided to give these a quick run before summer kicks in. As it’s still chilly in the morning and evening these black bomber jackets come in handy! Beside that, they look pretty cool I think!

Full black, as in black zippers, black stitching and finished with a new orange colorway of the skull. Black & orange is a thing, right? On the inside they are finished with the same orange as the skull and more on the inside is that they have a little insidepocket, handy for you mobile or wallet. On the outside you can find 2 side pockets, perfect to keep more junk in (or just your hands, haha!)

They’re pretty warm to be honest and pretty good when it comes to stopping the wind. I love them and I’m wearing it almost every day since they were finished! Go check them out in the KEVVE-INC webshop and thanks for spreading the love!
