    Just bought and tried some of the above results are excellent and the paint feels likes its just been waxed.. Really recommend this stuff if you don't have the time for a full wax and it smells amazing!

    Never heard of it and thought it would be ok but not like waxing but I was wrong. I suppose it only works if you wax regularly. I got to the point where I was doing it every weekend and this seems like the perfect option to keep it looking waxed without the effort. Gotta say it looks as good if not better then when I wax it :-/ yet to see the beading but I'm hopeful it's going to be good!

    I wouldn't normally go this over kill on a product but the shine is amazing in combo with regular waxing I'd say I'd struggle to find better.. Why didn't I know about this before.. And yes I admit it I sniffed the car :-/

    Halfords are doing 3 for 2 on autoglym ATM

    I you're liking quick detailers, I suggest looking into Finishkare #425 or Chemical Guys V7 spray sealant.

    Sounds like you know your stuff.. I know it's old school but always found the autoglym stuff the best in the shops..

    Where is the best place to get the above stuff?

    online unfortunately. All the main detailing websites sell it.
    Autoglym you're right, you can never go wrong with. It's all down to personnal prefernce really and what works for you. ;)

    Should try Angelwax's QED - Has just been voted Auto Express Best Buy Quick Detailer 2013. Beat every other brand and marques hands down......and its fantastic and alot cheaper than you think.
