    Autoglym Paint preperation?

    Anyone else gone for this as an option from the Audi dealer? Anyone had it done and seen the evidence? i.e. how good is it?

    i've used meguiars next generation tech wax. works really well and very very very very quick to apply and very very easy to remove. gives a really good dark finish

    going to try gold car wax next time though to see which is best.

    That is really clean ajmackie. Might have to invest in some decent car cleaning products. If only it would stop raining long enough to get out there!

    Gutted for you. I live life on the edge every day and let the wife drive the car. Just waiting to come home one day and break down in tears on the drive way when I see the scuffed bumpers and curbed alloys. She is being good so far though. Fingers crossed...

    Someone did that to me with a courtesy car once and left a massive dent on the bonnet with their sainsburys trolley. There were 7 lines from the trolley as well as a dent. It was a Peugeot though so it didnt matter, plus I hadnt signed anything when i picked the car up!!! Long story, sh*t car, I hate Peugeot.

    I wouldn't let a dealer do anything that requires patience i.e. valeting, waxing etc.. they just employ some kid to do it for you out the back.

    Get the car home and wash it with fairy liquid solution (gets all the nasty machine applied wax crap off) then apply a good quality wax to it. Something like Meguairs gold class is good, something from Swissol if you're feeling flush.

    Meguairs NXT wax is great, but not that long lasting so I'd use a proper wax every couple of months or so and NXT in between to top up the shine. Using a decent wax also makes cleaning the car SOOOOOOOOOO much easier as the dirt has nothing to bond properly to. Ensure you use a decent shampoo to avoid stripping the wax you spent all that time applying. Meguiars soft wash is very good for this IMO.

    A

    PS: Autoglym super resin polish is a mild cutting compound (think t-cut) so dont apply it every week or you'll soon dull the finish.
