    Caliper colour change - ideas needed

    My S3 8v (daytona Grey) has red callipers and i'm bored with them after a few years. I reckon the Porsche viper green is too much for a man of my mature years. Is yellow just as bad ? I reckon it would show up well against the paintwork. The turquoise-ey blues and the like don't do it for...

    Decent garden hose for use with PW ?

    Hi folks. My garden hose has sprung a major leak so looking for a replacement for use with Karcher K5 compact PW. Standard Hozelock hose has served me well but age has caught up with it. Ideally looking for replacement that won't kink so easily but some I've seen online aren't recommended for...

    Pad wash recommendations

    I was looking for ideas for polishing pad cleaners. Chemical Guys and others do bespoke products with matching brushes which look good but then I saw Jon (?) on Forensic Detailing demonstrating cleaning pads with APC and a toothbrush. Seemed pretty effective. Anyone else use that method and...

    Clearmount Questions

    I have recently bought a Clearmount to hold my iPhone 8 plus. It comes with both magnet and cradle. Do the air vent covers pull off easily to allow you to fit the cradle and also does anyone have a recommendation for a phone cover that is sturdy enough but will still work with the magnet ...

    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    First wash for a while - been WFH for 5 weeks so car has hardly moved. Neighbour over the back had been using some kind of concrete cutting saw or something and the dust is hellish. First step was to head to local Morrison’s to use hot pre wash and cold rinse (no brushes to be clear !) to...

    The question no one is asking about Ceramic coating

    Danny RS3 - you say " proper maintenance and the occasional decontamination at least once a year with tar and iron remover is necessary to keep it performing, and using a “top” up coating of an SIO2 based spray sealant will extend the life and performance quite a lot". I had always thought that...

    Gyeon Wet Coat Question

    Thanks V6. Doesn't having to apply with MF kinda defeat the point of Wet Coat ie it's a spray on and so much quicker than hand application ? I'd also hesitate to apply it other than as per the maker's instructions. Any ideas for a fix ?

    Gyeon Wet Coat Question

    Finished my car with GWC after a wash on Monday. The car is ceramic coated so it was really just done to produce some beading. I rinsed off immediately as per the instructions. Got in the car this morning (not driven it since Monday) and noticed what look like white spots on the windscreen...
