    Ceramic coatings

    Got to confess that I'm starting to side more with Jassyo06 on the coatings front that I thought I would. I was really impressed with GTechniq CSL and Exo when I applied it 18 months ago, but Exo didn't even last 6 months and so earlier this year I re-coated it with ExoV4 and that lasted about a...

    Loving it. It's quieter than the old one and seems to shift a bit more dirt than the Karcher K5 I had before. I just have to keep forgetting how much money I spent on it..! :) The only problem is it's now too easy to buy different bits for it. Like the shorty gun, quick release fittings for the...

    Bought a cheeky short gun for the Kranzle. :)

    Only a small outing this time round. Must say the Grey mitt feels much nicer than the blue I already have. The Gyeon Tyre is really good (thanks jassyo06) and I'm really impressed with the Dr Leather.

    Plastic B Pillar Swirls

    I did mine by hand. Foam applicator with some AF tripple. By no means was it perfect and I didn't put a great deal of effort in, but they did look better. Basically my DA is too big for those so I had to get creative. :)

    Yeah I had to have the hose reel, I could've saved quite a bit of cash if I'd not bothered but for ease of use I just had to have it. My old Karcher had the hose reel so I'd would definitely have missed it . Yeah, I need to remember to keep it on the wide fan or as you say it'll start stripping...

    Well I finally caved in and bought the Kranzle pressure washer I've been wanting for quite a while. I blame it on temporary insanity. They're not worth the money as there's no way they ever could be, but I can see a lot of quality differences between it and the Nilfisk P150 I bought before it...

    That's good then. :) I have a full set of wheel woolies but the large one is just too big for the S3 as it catches on the discs all the time. I just fine the incrediflair easier to use than a normal mitt as you can get your hands in easier. If it ever wears out I'll be buying another one for...

    @q5man - Remember it's best to throw away the microfibre cloths after your applied the CSL. I used the costco ones when I did mine as they were brand new, fairly cheap and I didn't mind throwing them in the bin. Basically the residue crystallizes and you can end up scratching your car if you use...

    I thought it was quite reasonable to be honest. It recommends 100ml of foam and then topped up with 500ml of water. This is enough for me to go all round the car including the wheel wells and it's definitely thick enough. I've left it at this concentration so 2.5l gives me 25 washes which is 64p...

    To be honest I quite like it. It foams very well and when I used it this Sunday the foam running down the car had a nice brown tinge to it as it lifted the dirt away. I don't think it's the most aggressive cleaner out there, but I'm happy with that so at least it's not attacking the LSP. Hope...

    Waxing your Car

    And the lord said 'let there be light' and then there was light. Jassyo06 saw the virtues of BSD and there was much rejoicing. Praise the Lord...! :D

    Waxing your Car

    I know these guys have to make a living and it's down to hourly rates but this seems somewhat expensive. 1. Basically a decon wash and single stage polish (not sure what level or quality) with a coat of wax. It'll look nice and you might get 4-6 weeks of protection based on your wash routine...

    FUBAR'D or alternatively known as a dealer wash. :(

    @Tashfeen - wow you're really going through it at the moment buddy, I can feel your pain and hope you get it sorted. I just can't believe how much they've f****d your car. What the hell have they done to the boot to get that much of a difference?

    @Tashfeen - It still amazes me they can do so much damage from one wash. I don't know how you could remain calm as that is absolutely shocking. I know the garages see this as a courtesy to the customer by providing a clean car, but I see it as pure vandalism and they should be dealt with...
