Not much in it between Reload and Gyeon Cure. They both did the same job for me. I just found Cure was less likely to streak on black which obviously won't be an issue for @A4A4.
To be honest after a couple of applications of gyeon on 3 different cars, gyeon really is a fancy quick detailer and to get the best from it is, use it on top of ceramic coating where it's being applied to the ceramic and not the clear coat

Nice, so that is on top of your already ceramic coated paintwork?

Impressive beading, would be good to see how long it lasts.

This is very true, but with the "protection" should come off easier than normal water marks...hopefully

It didn't on the Scholl + CP Reload 'protected' A3 (it rained the next day) and I washed the car twice. I had to use CP Spotless with a MF cloth and washed the car the third time to completely get rid of them.

And it is raining again in Oxford and tbh I am slightly nervous now to find out if my Fusso coat that I applied to the A3 behaves the same (hope not)

Luckily the 'spotting' has come off with one easy and quick wash. Still reserving judgement on how the CP Reload performs. Early days yet.


Also find when driving faster pulls the beads off

Time to give the Alloys a brush up.

Used BH alloy wheel, then washed then applied angel wax bilberry wheel wax sealant.

The smells, thought I mistakenly used pot pourri refills instead. Both smelled lovely. LOL

Here are the pictures of the results.

Angel wax sealant pot will last for ages, used only a tiny amount. So will top this up on the next wash.

Really pleased with the results, Alloys looking really shiny for the age hence never been refurbished.

Bit late to the party but got to say I am convert since trying synthetic sealant for the first time.

Synthetic wax sprays are the way forward for me.
Amazed by the results with very little effort.

No more carnauba wax paste!

This was my take on cleaning & detailing using this combo


CEA05FDD-47B8-487A-AD56-226B49140B1E.jpeg



Overall this cleaning haul gave good results and the car looks great and well groomed again . It also didn’t break the bank. All for around £100 and enough product left to do all again many times over.


Only things l would consider changing when l used it all up ( don’t like wasting money) would be to try a different polish, shampoo and wax detailer.



The rest of it did what it supposed to do.

Regularly washing and the odd mix detailing spray top ups should keep it looking smart until the car is due for its next polish in a few months time.

What did you apply on them tyres @A4A4. Is it just the 'wet look' or actually 'wet', looks .


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

A quick fix over spray off simoniz back to black tyre shine. ( on offer at Costco)

That photo was taken 4 days ago so after 4 days of driving later this is how it looks like today . Still got some wet look.

4 days of no rain has helped but noticed also the wheel sealants applied are holding off most of the brake dust . Guess that’s down to the nice weather too.

Not touched it for 10 days now so be interesting to see how easy it is to get clean again, as l don’t have ceramic coating.

Not sure about this ‘ceramic coating’

So what are the benefits having a ceramic coating application?

Basically It replaces your cars paint surface with a ceramic glass like surface, and in turn dirt and dust won't adhere to it as much as say on a wax or Sealant mate

Hey thanks for the reply. I guess ceramic coating will be easier to keep clean if it repels dirt better but seems a bit steep in price.


So going to try and leave mine for 2 weeks then just rinse, wash, rinse, towel dry and finish off the drying with edgeless MF cloth.


I want to see how it looks with the products previous applied to see how quick & easy (or not) it was to get gleaming again.


Before thinking about ‘ceramics’ and if they are worth it for me.

Rained off and on here again so unable to clean the car again today. Getting withdrawal symptoms.

It has now been over 2 weeks since 2nd coating of reload and it seems to be doing its job.

Still Beading & gleaming for now
