    Slim's 10% off weekend?

    Hey! Thanks for the tag. We will have Valetpro Pre Wash back in stock Tuesday, so I've tricked the system so it shows as in stock now to buy. Hydro2 Lite however won't be in till late next week or the one after. Happy to do a similar magic trick if you are ok with a slight delay in getting a...

    Ultimate Compound, Swirl X or...

    As has been mentioned above Meguiar's Ultimate Compound with the matching microfibre pads is a good option, then a finishing polish or wax. A better option for deeper swirls and scratches is Meguiar's 105 & 205 compounds. Be slightly cautious with harsher polishes though, modern Audi paint is...

    Engine bay cleaning

    That's a good point, the use of a pressure washer is more suited to newer engines, that have a lot more protection of those sensitive areas. So, yeah to be on the safe side using an APC through a spray bottle will help you control things better. Rinsing off with a hose will give you less risk...

We put together a video with Auto Finesse on how to clean an engine bay with a pressure washer & lance should you wish to go down that route. See...

    Quick detailers

    Some of that is crazy cheap, worth a shot just for that! It's a good point, some QD's offer very little in difference from the next. Ones that stand out are Dodo Juice Red Mist and Chemical Guys Vintage Speed Wipe. The latter being just lovely to apply for a quick high gloss finish.

    Traffic Film Remover

    Quite right. If you have a good layer of protection from a quality wax or sealant, the snow foam process can be really effective. The less time coming into contact with the car the better for avoiding light scratches or swirls, snow foam on a protected surface should do a lot of the work for you.

    Gliptone leather cleaner is excellent, I'd also recommend Gtechniq L1 for protection. :)

    Jet Seal over wax coating?

    It does look good! Yeah, you should be ok. Meguiar's paint cleaner will have taken off the last of your previous wax. Jet seal will last you a long old time as well, especially with two layers. Ready for winter!

    Pitted A pillar trims - why and how ?

    I use Carpro PERL on my S1 for rubbers & trim. It works on plastic, engine bays, rubber & leather (Hence why it's called PERL!). Keeps the colour nicely, offers a good protective coating and it is nice and easy to apply.

    Alloy Deep Clean - Products and Advice?

    I'd second that, it's the best selling wheel cleaner we have - for very good reason! Ironx will tackle most of the job, it's PH balanced so won't damage the wheels either. However, given the strength of it, i'd recommend something like Valetpro Bilberry Wheel Cleaner for regular cleaning &...
