Drips from door mirrors causing limescale stains

Hi, I have a 2016 RRSport and notice when washing the car water runs from the door mirrors for ages after washing/drying the car.

I noticed limescale lines from mirrors to bottom of doors, only way I could get rid of them was to carefully T-cut the area.

Has anyone else found this problem, didn't have it on my earlier 2010 RRSport? Arrived - RRSport 2016 HSE SDV6 HSE

Yes, much more of a problem than my earlier 2 Sports. RRS2 mirror casings seem to store water like sponges and release it at will. Sunroof tracks/seals do similar and are able to drip water on the windscreen surprisingly long after a wash. I have seen the marks on the door too but haven't paid enough attention to see if they disappear at the next wash though. Current: MY16 RRS2 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, Carpathian Grey & Santorini Black Sliding Pano/Ebony & Ivory 2 Tone

That's when you need to get the leaf blower out, to disperse all the water from the nooks and crannies. Works a treat Thumbs Up 2003 BMW M5 - 5 Litres of V8 Optimax Slurping Goodness in Carbon Black

I find an airline is best (if you have one of course) also great for cleaing difficult areas on interior!

Do your final rinse with water through a DI vessel, you don't have to dry any of the car then and any water that runs out won't stain. Nanocom Evo
