    SuperGuard

    Anyone have any ideas of what this costs?
    Is it worth having on a phantom black car?
    Have been given a quote via email with this included but the price of this is not specified.

    by the looks of it, it is just a sealant, have you looked at getting the protection film for the whole car, it is very very good.

    do you have a brand new car?

    In a word, no, dont waste your time with it, Just buy some decent wax. Dealers charge between 250-350 for this and its not worth more than a tenner.

    Welcome to the site, use the search facility mate as there have been various discussions on this product, tbh it was regarded as worthless, get a good detail done to the car & with the aftercare you can do yourself cheaply it will look damn site better than this stuff for sure.

    Definitely don't bother with it. The kit you can pick up off Ebay for 20. Dealers charge anywhere between 250-400 for it to be applied. IMO and from listening to others the dealers cause more damage putting the stuff on....that was the reason when I was offered it FOC I turned it down

    my missus got a brand new ka, and got the paint protection put in, it basically is a thick strong sealant, it is good but i could easily have done this for her but i would have to kkeep topping it up, the main good thing about it, is that as they say paint should be fine for like 2 years, if a bird does its stuff all over it n marks it, ford will repair it free of charge!!!!

    I bet you look in the small print there is a clause that says that bird dropping must be washed off. We used to do supaguard and im sure it said that.

    lol, her ka is great, i made her get the gun metal grey, its a great little car, no better small car out there!

    n yea, there prob is summin in small print, but i remember asking loads of question about it n me being a fairly keen detailer, i wanted to know what it was, he wasnt to sure with what the product is, but he said they polish up paint n get it n good condition, put a few coats of this sealant on n each time they leave it on for a few hours. i asked if you can buy it off the shelf he said no, (i asked this cos zaino z2 needs to be left on for bout an hour to cure) its seems to be ok, but that may be because i keep cleanin it n protecting it!

    and a clay kit will provide you with a great finish and some great beading/sheeting. if your a newbie to detailing, get the megs kit, the more expensive stuff is good, but you need to think about what level of cleanin you need, as you can get harsh clay or really fine clay, you alos need to buy the lube separate!

    And you have to have used the aftercare products on regular basis to maintain the warranty. You're much better off spending half the money on some clay, polish & wax

    I use gard-x at work, and thats the same stuff, its a load of rubbish tbh, the sealant makes the car gleam but it doesnt last as long as the dealers say it does, and the stain gard for the interior is absolutely ****e.

    Thanks for the replies folks. Looks like i'll be giving it a miss then.
    Not got the car yet. Still hunting for quotes. Nothing 100% but I'm after a 3dr A3 2.0TDi Sline Black Edition and yep will be brand new. Having seen the options available I think I'll be going for Phantom Black.
    Thanks for the welcome. I've been browsing the site for a while, just keeping tabs on new developments.
    If I find the right deal then I'll be speccing matt inalys (think it's too black inside with the piano's), swapping the titanium allows for the normal sline wheels (if I can pursuade the dealer to swap as the pimped out look is not for me) and changing the grill to the facelift S3 grill (ala SEM).
    You may ask why have the black edition well, I would have went for a normal sline and added the xenons and drl's had it not been for the FBMFSW.

    Snow foam is great, everyone gives you dodgy looks. Yes you will need a pressure washer. Car detailing is very addictive, I find anyway. Once the car is clayed, buy some good sealant like zaino z2 or chemical guys jet seal n a good wax from dodo juice.

    For the snow foam you don't need a pressure washer. It is preferable but there are guns which just work off a standard garden hose

    But they really dont cut the mustard, there is just no thickness or dwell to the foam using them!

    yea, but the ones the work from garden hoses dont have that thickness that from a pressure washer does, the throw foam on but it just falls off, whereas with a pressure washer, it sticks to your car for about 3-4 mins

    as the foam is so aerated it lifts the dirt off of the car and loosens any stubborn stuck on crud, sounds like a advert for cilit bang lol!

    its what they call a pre wash, it aggitates the dirt and loosens it, and you then rinse off with pressure washer, it removes about 80% of dirt, it reduces the chance of your washing mitt picking dirt up and scratching it all over your car. i always use it, i use http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washin.../prod_326.html and this is what you use it in, you put a little bit of, say, hyper wash, and then the rest water, plug it in n then the water being pushed through the pressure washer, creates a vacuum which lifts the cleaning liquid and foams it up!

    Its actually a Venturi pump do you not add any shampoo to your mix?

    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washin.../prod_371.html i forgot to put that up too sorry (look at the pics)
    yea it certainly is a venturi pump, we have one at work, but we use it for totally different reasons and it is much bigger, the foam concentrate we use is made up from animal waste, smells horrible, wouldnt be putting that on my car!

    but yea, i use that meg hyper wash!
