    I do mine in Morrisons supermarket Silver drive-thru wash. I do beleive in the ultimate cleaning experience, after all the Silver service may not be the top one (Gold wash is £4.99) but at £3.99, I think it represents a good all round performance plateau and a long lasting shine and deep lustre for such a significant investment.

    All in, the process time is acceptible at around 4 minutes, although I do feel a bit tired after walking round the car at the wash exit to see if the under-spoiler area has been properly detailed, as previous bristle-wash systems have been less than satisfactory in this respect, though the new black-foam brushes are simply excellent in their cleaning power and shine delivery.

    All in all a very good result as long as you do the wheels before-hand with the £1.99 jet wash as this gives the ultimate in wheel cleaning.

    At £5.98 in total then, it isnt affordable by everyone, but then it is worth the added expense over letting the rain wash it, or next doors kids armed with a grit-encrusted kitchen scourer and a bucket of fairy liquid.

    I intend to post full pics after my next visit, and hope it doesnt encite too much jealousy over the finely detailed finish and mirror-like shine.

    :)

    LOL! I just thought id inject a wee bit of wry scots humour into the subject hehe.

    In actual fact, the day I picked up the car, it picked up 3 dents and 4 deep scratches / gouges from the aforementioned kids as I share a driveway with next door and now park it in the street!

    I do intend to get it repainted but not by some cowboy so when thats done then the detailing will begin.....but i'll probably pay a valet service to do it cos with my shifts and all that I barely get time to do anything.

    Thats if I dont change it but the credit crunch ****** means parting with loads of cash deposits now so still shopping around.

    The last straw was when the said kids turned up at the door wi a bucket o mucky water and a kitchen scouring pad asking if they could wash it.....the oldest was 9, I declined but gave them £2 to leave it alone and try someone else LOL

    So she wasnt counting on it taking that long by sounds of it. Defo got a bargain there. Your paint work was pretty swirly wasnt it, mine was but not that bad. Just make sure you maintain it now till you do it again next year. Im still gonna go over mine with the machine waffle, just lacking that deeper shine since I had the respray,its driving me nuts!

    So whats this young lady look like then...:eyebrows:
    Is she worth having round your house for 3 days,lol...?
