    Waste of money IMO. Spend your money on a huge stock of decent detailing products instead.

    As said... forget it. Not worth it even if it were free!

    Bit late to the party on this thread, but no not worth £300 you can buy the kit for around £30 and do it yourself.

    Nah, def not worth it. Bought the Autoglm Lifeshine version myself off eBay for about £6 and put it on. Uttter, utter rubbish! Get yourself some decent products (I personally like Collnite 476s/845).

    You've actually been given the option of being bent over the desk! :)

    A polite 'no thank you' should do the trick!

    As above, get some decent products yourself for a fraction of the cost. Collinite 476 is great.

    was offered for free when I bought mine.....not even worth it at that price LOL. It will cost you just as much to rectify the scratches they put in it. Pay a bit more and get a proper detailer to do it.

    I changed from NXT to the Werkstat Acrylic kit last summer. Amazing difference on my Avus Silver A3! Check our Polished Bliss for the Werkstat kit.

    I haven't had chance to put any protection on my car. I clayed it last summer, its due again, so I will do again in 2 weeks time! Then put Jeffs Acrylic kit on, then I'll go over it with the polisher in summer and put some BOS on it (Swissvax Best Of Show) for when 20"s go on :).

    Cheers N8. :o.k:

    Ive used it many times, used to be a valeter, says it lasts for ages, its a load of rubbish, yeah the car absolutely gleams when its on, and the fabric protector smells nice inside, but DEFINITELY NOT worth the money
