It looks like the paint is in good shape. How do you keep it that good over the years?

I used to use Zaino and an occasional clay bar to keep the surface pristine, but lately I just do an annual wax. Darker colors like NFR and Berlina tend to look pretty nice when clean. My car was garaged most of its life too.

I have a clear bra on my front area which is pretty peppered and dull but there should be a pristine bumper beneath.

Congratulations on the milestone, your car looks remarkably fresh! Your next target should be 477,800 so you can say you've driven it to the moon and back.

This is impressive to say the least

What’s your cold start routine? How long do you idle the car for before driving off and how do you drive it until operating temp? Curious to know.
