    IIRC, you did mention a few months ago to not mix different products together especially SF and APC as each loses its cleaning ability as well as effectiveness. You keep changing your mind @jassyo06 ... Lol and keep confusing the lot here

    Depends on how filthy the car is, I have used between 1:10 - 50/50. And BH is my go to product with occasional use of Surfex HD as a PW. Imho AG stuff is guff and not worth spending money on. Having said that, I do use their metal cleaner for exhaust tips

    Same as me mate. I tend to use about 100ml BH to 600/700ml water, give or take. Like you find the cleaning power much better.

    Merry Xmas

    Well said, I have never got to 50:50, maybe 1:3 at most. I just find the thinner solution. Pulls dirt off better than the thicker foams. That said, Gyeon foams like a b*stard and is pretty good, and smells good too

    Sadly though @X3man, I now own a 3-Series (330d, 245ps) as well. Bought as a daily a few months ago as I am now doing around 500 miles a week :wtf::scared2: and didn't want to clock up miles on either the S4 or A3...

I am itching to wash both the cars as I have not washed both in a little over 3 months :puke2::wtf:. I need to order quite a few bits and thought I'll ask before placing the order ...

    Bought quite a lot as haven’t done any proper detailing in over a year. Had to renew my microfibre buffing clothes (from Ragmasters Uk)

    various compounds and drying towels (mycarcleaning, based in Newcastle)

    Also bought a Milwaukee M12 polisher/sander for smaller more localised scratches. Paint repair guys at work have been showing me how to get the best out of them.

    just need to find a day when i have nothing planned, which is gonna be hard with a 4yr old and a 9month old.

    I dont see the point of wet coat Essence mate as once diluted it's the same thing and same price as the normal wet coat ,l would go with a litre bottle of normal wet coat but for more durability apply another product on afterwards like a good quick Detailer

    Cheers mate. I've ordered Hydro2 along with Cure instead of Wetcoat essence as can't be bothered with applying it with a mitt/MF . Planning on topping it up with Cure for longevity. Also, ordered 0ppm Race Glaze for a final rinse as water is very hard in the area I've just moved to

    I had a 3 series. Stay away from cheap tyres. Goodyear eagle asymmetric F1 transformed the car when I had mine.

    Cheers mate. I put Michelin CrossClimate on as soon as I bought the car. Having said that, I will be getting rid of it as I am looking for either a 1.6Tdi Golf or a Passat. Smaller engine and better fuel economy

    @Pinky1959 @Rich76 @X3man - H2Go is still my fave window treatment, however for that price I thought I'd give it a try
    Its only for side windows mind
    I can always pass it on to my son if I don't like it

    For anyone considering a Cordless DA you May want to hold off for a few weeks.
    I was shown a ShineMate cordless DA before Xmas.
    It was a prototype for testing but it looked a great piece of kit.

    Price I’m told is going to be a lot less than the Flex offering too.

    Ordered a Das-6 Pro from clean your car. Aswell as some Scholl 1 stage polish. Both get good reviews and my little battery handheld polisher is good but struggling to do bigger areas with it.
