    Lovely Cupra in a very nice colour @Bristle Hound - looked at the estate (ST) version of yours in the same colour before I ended up going for the S3. Loved my old 2006 SEAT Leon 2.0 TFSI Sport with factory-fit BTCC body kit (wouldn't have kept it for 10 years if I didn't), but the literal pull of 4 wheel drive was too strong for me after I drove both. Was v. impressed with the Cupra though, and that's a cracking example you've got there. I have a lot of respect for the SEAT brand and I do like the lack of 'snobbery' associated with it. I've had more negative comments about being 'an Audi driver' in the last 6 months than I had in a whole decade of being a SEAT pilot!

    I'm not a mixologist like yourself when it comes to last stage protection (I do muck about with snow foam mixes though - 50/50 Bilt Hamber Auto Foam/ Surfex HD being my current favourite). I take the view that a LSP product has to stand up on it's own two feet, and if it doesn't then there are other great products out there that do. I'm not a BSD 'hater', I have some in the garage, and I have no issue with the application or finish it delivers - it's just the 'grabby' feel it leaves on the paint that prevents me from loving it. I now find I'm struggling to use it up as I have other products I prefer.

    Gyeon Cure once a month and Done & Dusted for the weeks between is making me happy at the moment, but always happy to learn from the experiences of others like yourself mate and sounds like you've found ways to overcome the main drawback of BSD, so kudos!

    Still using t hese over Fusso Dark/KOG:

    BSD/V07 - still the best IMO
    BSD/Done and Dusted - Excellent
    BSD/Adams - Good in the summer
    BSD/Demon Shine - For use on others' cars, saves the BSD.

    @Tashfeen - This is the beading I was getting on BSD/V07 mix on the wife's old MINI

    [​IMG]

    Might be worth another shot buddy with less product
    @Jimbob76 - Thanks for the kind words my friend
    Don't talk to me about Audi drivers ... lol (only kidding, I think :D)

    I have way to many QD's and TBH likr playing around with the mixes
    Durability doesn't concern me too much as every wash its always another mix just like a QD.Haven't had a problem mixing the mixes as BSD is always in 'em
    Like you I had a bottle of BSD on the shelf & didn't reach for it beacuse of it grabby nature 'neat', but the mixes ahave solved that IMHO
    Give it a go buddy & let us know your thoughts
    @pxr5 - A man after my own heart ! :thumbs up:
    @q5man - Nice one - keep the pic's & thoughts coming :thumbs up:
    ^:sign spam:
    Your not allowed to comment as you haven't even tried BSD let alone a mix :p

    Nice day today so I managed to get the car done :) Half a bottle of BSD & half a bottle of Meguiars Gold Class QD mixed:

    It went on like a hot knife through butter ;) spray and wipe, no dragging and no buffing off, I'm very happy with the results for the effort I had to put in!...bring on the rain :D

    As I was doing it, a guy walked past with his girlfriend and said "I can smell perfume" then saw me on the drive and laughed "It's him" :whistle2:

    Thought I would try a mix I haven't tried in a while today
    50/50 mix of Sonax BSD & Adam's Detail Spray

    Haven't used it for a while. I forgot how nice it was to use TBH
    Great super slick glossy finish & the smell just wow. Coconut mixed with tutti frutti yummee !

    I had to ******* Darcy as she was having a lick of the paintwork after I applied it, it smelled that nice lol

    A few reflection shots after application

    I’ve recently used BH Double Speed Wax on my car. Would it be ok to use BSD/V07 on top of it after my weekly maintenance wash?

    thought i ask this here.

    We know that Beadmaker is glossy, but how does it compare to the gloss of BSDV7 ?

    Won't be doing the Beadmaker/BSD combo then ... :whistle2:

    Done the 50/50 mix of BSD & CP Reload quite a while a go & worked well on SWBMO old JCW

    [​IMG]

    Worked well enough for me :thumbs up:
