Mini review as promised

Being a sucker for a bargain I'm always on the look out for something new & cheap in car Detailing
lol
Always been a believer you don't have to spend a fortune on Detailing products to get a fab finish

So I've ordered some of this (ended up with 2 as it happens) lol

Gave the Avant a little going over today
VP CPW pre-wash
Wash with CarChem's 1900:1 shampoo & dried off

1 coat of the the Turtle Wax Hybrid Sealant Hydrophobic Wax applied
1 spray per panel applied in straight lines then buffed off in a circular motion
After 3 panels buffed again with plush buffing MF

Tyres dressed with Megs endurance tyre gel

The Avant was 'naked'. It had nothing on the paintwork so I was interested to see how this product faired

I was amazed how slick it was & the shine was amazing for a product that cost me a fiver delivered

Good to see a cheap product that works.
I was in my local post office today and they had one litre bottles of car shampoo for £1.99, i have never heard of the make but my TJ,s bottles and labels come to about that before the product.

That looks good

Though I can never find the cleaning products on car parts for less

The trick is to find it on ECP and then copy the product code to the Car Parts site. AFAIK they are the same company

And carparts for less are so much cheaper

Spark plugs for my new car £16 each on ecp plus whatever discount they are offering today
Same plugs on cp4less are £8 each plus the discount!

Good stuff @Bristle Hound
Is that quartz grey?
I may try some as I have that colour

Forget that, it's Monza silver, I just realized from your thread duh!!

Very similar to quartz though

@Bristle Hound - great mini review :thumbs up:
On the back of this, I ordered from Amazon and they did 2 500ml bottles for 15 sovs delivered!
The online reviewers are loving this product and to be honest after watching you tubers try to destroy its hydrophobic properties I was sold :)
Will report back here after I have tried it.

I’m very impressed with this stuff but make sure you shake it really well and don’t apply too liberally. It won’t do any harm but a light misting is all that’s needed. Gloss isn’t stunning on the Daytona grey (not too surprising) but the effects on my wife’s white polo gti is stunning. Even she noticed !
Brilliant on wheels too (kerbed alloy now repaired you’ll be happy to hear :grinning: )

Top marks here also, used tonight just after rinsing and 1 panel at a time..... stunning gloss effect on a Suzuka grey. Not too much effort to take off but I echo @SiPie , less is more! View attachment 185625
View attachment 185715 A light spray and quick buff with Turtlewax yesterday, literally 10 mins
Pic doesn’t do it justice but at least you get a nice reflection of a Shark vacuum cleaner
Pleased to see its not just me who thinks this is a fab product
You don't have to spend a fortune to get a great finish
BUT if your chasing near 100% perfection maybe this isn't expensive enough for you ;):D

Very interesting thread, was about to take the plunge on bouncers si done and dusted until i seen this. Who would have thought turtle wax would be capable of producing a fantastic detailing spray :):respekt:

Has anyone tried applying to a wet car? I fear when I try to use it might be in bright sunlight...
 
I also bought the double pack from Amazon, however, after using it for the first time earlier this week, I found that when buffing the panel after application, it left a waxy smear in places.......do you think this was because I applied too much spray? I did use separate MF cloths for application and buffing.

@RobbieWebs - You won't be disappointed in it Robbie
So the big question.... does it take the crown from the previous cheap big hitter Sonax BSD ?...
@Taxboy - Easier to apply than BSD & leaves a slicker finish too
Altho' it doesn't bead as well as BSD from what I've seen
Ordered a twin pack from Amazon, thanks for the review BH...
@cuke2u - No probs
For the money its a fab product IMHO

I haven't yet but will be interested to hear from anyone who has

@AllanG - Sounds like over application to me buddy
I was spraying once per panel whereas with QD's I normally do 2

I have applied it on a wet car and whilst I was impressed with how it dispelled the remaining moisture, I definitely got better results on a dry car with slight smears in the wet that would not buff out.
It needed a re-wash of the car to clear these.
Possibly something I did wrong or a reaction with a previous product, but I’ll stick to using on a dry car.
Really good product though, if a little lacking in shine on Daytona Grey.
As mentioned earlier, stunning shine on wife’s white car.

Thanks for the information, unfortunately I have to do mine in full daylight, with no shade. Thus prefer to have the panels damp as any product like this can dry immediately on contact if I am not careful. At least if I rinse with the Raceglaze before, and sometimes I have to do this each panel at a time, the bodywork does cool down a bit. I still have to be very quick though.
Certainly won't be doing it this week, with temperatures due to hit over 31c. If I can get it timed right I really need cloudy weather but none is on the horizon. Plus we have Sahara dust in the air as well...

I think it was the heat of the bonnet that caused the issues with mine. Although it says ‘can be applied in direct sunlight’, I’d rather not.

About to acquire my 1st DA polisher (cheap version) am I correct in thinking this stuff could be applied after 1 stage pass with sonax perfect finish?

Just an update, cleaned the car yesterday for the first time since those pics were taken, so just over a month.

Car stayed relatively clean over that month with the exception of the wheels. Lower half of the doors had some stubborn dirt that needed a contact wash, but the top half, you could barely tell.
Car was still beading well, with only a few areas showing signs it was wearing such as the boot. Bonnet and roof were areas that lost little beading ability.

Well pleased with the results, especially at the price it was up for.

I love it, so easy to use, great on silver paint. I'm not too bothered how long it last as long as it lasts until the next wash. I topped it with Tac Systems Shinee wax this time to give it a bit of bling too. Not sure if that will effect it or not.
