Re: Which

I have some Autoglym SRP and it seemed to work well on my last car but not used it yet on the 500.
I am currently using Autoglym High Definition wax (on the 500) and very impressed with the results.
Car is defo easier to keep clean and a nice shine too.

my dad swears by autoglym[been using in body shop for over 10 years+],but he says the new turtle wax[ICE] is great and dosnt mark windows/rubbers ect,and makes wheels+tyres look like new[£10 out of a1/halfords]

ps ,ice dos,nt leave that white chalk resendue ,and easy to put on take off.

Don't use it but then I take my car to a jet wash - stick £3 in it and I wet, shampoo, wash off and then whatever wax is in the jet wash and whatever time I have left it gets put on the windscreen...

Polishing is something I just can't be bothered with...the results do look good but the effort required in my view doesn't make it worthwhile...I'm a lazy sod - I like my car to be clean but I can't be bothered if it requires effort...which is almost the opposite for my bike - not fussed if it is clarty but it has to work flawlessly!

Having got into detailing this year, my collection is growing steadily. I originally had some 3M products and since the start of the year I've added some Serious Performance, Meguiar's and Autobrite products which include 10L of snow foam
Depending how long I've got to wash and polish depends which products i use. I'm hoping to add to the collection again over Christmas, possibly some Zaino and/or ClearKote

either buckets of water OR the pressure washer if I can be bothered dragging it out! I am still using halfrauds own shampoo (bought it when I had the Punto not knowing any better), then SRP, EGP, some kind of alloy cleaning gel/spray and tyre dressing to make it look new again

But I have Auto Glym fast glass and Auto Glym Tar remover in the post along with some microfibre polishing towel things

I wash, clay, wash, polish, wax

If the paint is losing its shine, I use the machine polish on it .
