    Complete noob with this sort of thing - from quick google seems I will need a polish and wax afterwards? Is this correct and if so should I just get the ones the brand recommends?

    Plenty to choose from depending on your budget. The G3 wax worked well on my black car.

    Buy a pre wax cleanser Dodo juice lime prime light is a very good one follow its application by the book....ie dont apply too much at a time,dont leave on too long and you'll get excellent results form both the lime prime and yer chosen wax

    So ultimate compound > dodo juice > wax? Is there a preferred weather to do this sort of thing in - I'm guessing no wind, dry and overcast?

    Thanks guys and @josul is right it is the typing thumb and what a nightmare after you break it.

    Not sure how but slipped while coming downstairs Thursday night and broke my thumb whilst trying to save my ar*we from getting hurt. Only realised it 10 mins after when I noticed the thumb facing the wrong direction . So, closed my eyes and clicked it back to its original position, which I am really proud of myself . Been advised rest for 2-3 weeks, have another appointment tomorrow as x-rays showed potential damage to ligaments . We'll find out.

    @Tashfeen - Before any of the guff you've tried on the scuff marks I would have tried a baby wipe. Plain & simple
    Always find these work for me. A much cheaper way that using bespoke detailing kit IMHO

    Probs a bit late now as I suspect you've already done 'em
    Where Have I been? Been away on the caravan for another 9 nights. Away in a fortnight for another 10 nights too :D

    @S32B - Easy ...

    @Tashfeen - Flipping heck mate - I go away for a week & look what happens !
    Seriously mate, here's hoping for a quick recovery
    So we will be seeing a lot more of you on ASN then lol

    Oh & Dodo Juice Lime Prime is guff - I gave my last bottle away
    Go for Auto Finesse Rejuvenate - a way much better product IMHO
    But as we know, 'tis all a bit subjective this detailing malarchy ;)

    After a lovely nail in my tyre on the way to work this morning resulted in a whole new set of tyres being required I was in a bit of a foul mood. But gave the car a good old wash after work and think I've just about calmed down now.

    Any recommendations for products to sort out my exhaust tips? They're looking a bit dull

    Autosol and a MF cloth, if they've not had any attention since new (which I'd doubt they would have before you picked it up) then mine came up like new with the above! Now the soot comes off easy enough with simple shampoo.
    Easy to keep on top of if you tackle them with the big stuff first so to speak.

    Can see the shine on this pic when I done mine last week.[​IMG]

    +1 for Autosol and MF cloth although when I got my car it needed the 000 wire wool treatment first. Some pitting that wouldn’t come out but you have to look closely.

    Just had time before dark to give the car a quick rinse, shampoo, dry and window/wheel clean ! Due to rain today though :cry:

    Since switching from the S3 to the BMW 225xe in December car cleaning has been non existent as it’s not been cleaned since Feb!!

    Anyway a wee delivery on the way from @in2detailing will hopefully get it looking sparkly again.

    Sorry guys, it’s not that bad.....honest!

    My excuse is that the mother in law borrowed the power hose to clean her drive.
    Which I ended up having to do, so it was finding the time for that that delayed the power hose return.

    Will post some pics once it’s clean.

    Just told the wife to expect the delivery tomorrow and I’ve to get the grass cut and the showers cleaned before I even think about cleaning the car!
