@Supa Koopa - 'Tis great stuff. You won't be disappointed SKBecause of Bristle Hound I have some Valet Pro Citrus pre wash on it's way to me.
I know the feeling. I've the same colour in an A4 b8.5. When it's clean it's great, however shows every mark. I've used Blackfire Polish and Seal on it. It's really good but I've fine swirls which can really be seen under fluorescent light. When the weather picksup I intend doing a paint correction on it using a da polisher and meguairs ultimate compound. Will then use the Blackfire p&s again. One product I did use recently was Sonax Extreme Brilliant Shine Detailer. The beading is unreal. Used it as a drying aid, a light spray on each panel and wipe off. The results are epic. Few videos on YouTube regarding this product. Eurocarparts have great deals on the Sonax range. Free shipping. Check it out. I bought a few products, glass cleaner, interior spray. German technology you can't beat it. . The detailer gets brilliant results even thou my car needs correction. After that all I can say is the two bucket wash, pre foam (bilthamber autofoam) works wonders and try to keep the swirls away.Think a pressure washer is a must for the prewash, get as much dirt of before touching the paint with shampoo. Drying aswell ( difficult unless indoors) will reduce any water spots. The joys of a black carI'm usually a bucket and sponge with triple wax (because it was on offer) and dry it off then showroom shine after. But now Iv got my b7 phantom black pearl I think I need to up my game and need educating. Any help guys?
P.s I don't have a pressure washer...yet lol
2 larger buckets so that my grit guards fit. Bilt hamber clay bar - regular. Also ordering bilt hamber auto wheel cleaner soon. Bilt hamber recommended by a detailing friend.
Need to get a wax and polish. Any recommendations?
