    I assume you mean this stuff: Greased Lightning Showroom Shine
    I wouldn't use it on my buckets let alone a cars bodywork! How can you clean a car safely without washing it? Answer: You can't.
    Even when you wash it using a pre-spray, snow foam, pressure washer, two buckets and lambswool mitts you will still scratch the paint because of the contaminents still present in the water and in the air.

    Basically, its a load of crap!



    Might be alright as a detail spray in between wax applications after you have washed the car properly but I doubt it

    I have used it in the past when I first got my A3.
    I quickly made sure it went down the ranks and eventually I gave it to my dad to use if there ever was fresh bird bomb on his Car. Apart from that I wouldnt use it at all.
    There are more better products out there, however nothing beats a proper wash and wax. There are lots of detailing sprays that can help "top up" a car.

    I use G Techniq which is something Ive started using, else prior to that I used the Werkstatt kit and/or Dodojuice Red Mist.

    Thanks for info Rikster23
    I know you guys going say i must be mad using this stuff. At mo i use Halfords | Turtle Wax Colour Magic 'Plus' - Black 500ml Because it's coloured i find it hides small chips and fine scratches well and i get car looking good.

    If i use somethink like Autoglym Super Resin Polish because its white, It makes chips and fine scratches stand out.

    Know of Somethink better but coloured?
