    Supaguard, how long does it last?

    Hi, I bought an A4 1.8t Sport Cab from Audi dealer 2 years ago, I was mugged into paying for a treatment that meant I didn't have to polish my car, it is called supaguard.

    I wondered if there is a way I could take it off and give it a proper clean, you know.

    yup, best bet for stripping supaguard or any other waxes is washing up liquid.. make sure you coat the car with something else same day though as paint will be fully exposed.

    I bought a Meguiar's smooth surface Clay kit. What a stuuning finish! I only looked at clay becasue of this forum, as I had never heard of it before. It is the best finish I have seen on the car, even when they put Supaguard on it.

    I polished it with Meguiar's Quik Wax. How often do I need to wax it?

    Halfords had an AutoGlym Clay Kit, with a £3 reduction to £21 as there was a "part missing". I did look, it was the Clay bar that was missing. I reckon that is the main part in a kit called Clay bar kit! Muppets! Mind, if it had been a tenner I would have had it.

    Anyway, what do you think of Meguiar's?

    Yep, I thought so, tyre cover, alloy wheel cover, gap insurance, supaguard ( Teflon coating at Landrover dealer lol) furry dice insurance, warranty cover, when will it end!

    I looked at a car at the weekend, car was £16000, the "sun or snow" insurance cover totalled £1600. That's 10% of the price, straight into the dealers pocket. And the price was £3000 over trade price to start with. "need finance?" No, 4WD off!

    haha yup.... makes me laugh how they can offer a 3 yr warranty on it when the hardest Carnuba wax probably lasts 8 months tops!!?? if that.....

    I remember our valeters applying it, never did it properly and always had plenty to take home for themselves afterwards, complete rip off. I think id only ever take the scotchguard for the carpets, the rest id bin faster than i would a dirty nappy

    If it was guaranteed against any stone chips, or any supermarket trolley scuffs, then it would be a product worth considering. But £400 so you "never need to polish the car" is a total rip off. Blokes at the top of my road wash it for £8, that's a hand car wash every week for a year.

    Why don't they try and sell something usefull, like an upgrade on the alloys, or a handsfree kit, or a satnav. That's got to be more useful than tyre insurance ffs.
