    That is pretty good. As someone on DW was saying recently, their chemists are as good as any, and most of the big brands have quite a high markup. Where did you get it from?

    is it not just silicon based though?
    i.e. does it look great until you have covered a few miles, and then does it attract muck like a magnet?
    it does look nice even if it may be short lived though!

    it does look really good! another product i'd recommend is Valet Pro Citrus Bling... you can buy a 500ml bottle for around £8. sounds a lot for 500ml but compared to other products that don't have as many uses its well worth the money. for example, i poured around 25ml into a 500ml trigger sprayer, filled the rest with water & use it as a quick detailer. even to this ratio it cleans & shines really well. beading on it was good too! i have to admit your pic's are impressive well done!

    first off car cleaning products are different to detailing products so that spray and shine is nothing to do with detailing, just because someone has washed a car and put a product on doesnt mean its been detailed lol

    personally mate i wouldnt use that product to clean my shoes let alone put on my S4 paint or any paint for that matter.

    splash out a bit and get yourself some good quality products and use the correct cleaning technique and make it shine like it should and stay shiny!!!

    these products are for the people who havent got a clue about car cleaning mate.

    p.s car cleaning and detailing are 2 different things, a lot of people think they are the same
