    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

    TURTLE WAX HYBRID SEALANT HYDROPHOBIC WAX
    £5.12 delivered from CarParts4Less
    https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/cp4...MI6LLyzsPQ4gIVzbztCh2P0g6TEAQYASABEgIZlfD_BwE

    https://www.turtlewax.com/en-gb/our-products/hybrid/turtle-wax-hybrid-sealant-hydrophobic-wax/

    Goes by the name - Turtle Wax Ice Seal n Shine in the US of A & Canada



    A few on here think John from Forensic Detailing knows his stuff & even he thinks its good too
    Looking like its going to be my 'go to' product for the Avant



    Ever increasing thread on DW too
    https://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=414366

    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

    A few pic's -
    (Before tyres were dressed)

    Going to my 'go to' for the Avant for the time being

    I don't think I'll have to wait to long to see the water behavior with this product lol

    Thanks for looking

    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.

    The TW product seems to be missing off both eurocarparts & carparts4less for some reason

    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! IMG_1888.jpg

    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

    So the big question.... does it take the crown from the previous cheap big hitter Sonax BSD ?...

    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
    @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
    @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.
    Cheers

    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?
