    An ASN member and I use it all the time on EVERTHING bar the windscreen. Give it a go, I'll be mega amazed you are not amazed.

    Had to top up my rapid detailer, wheel cleaner and I'm ready to jump on some GTechniq kit in the future.

    holy s***
    A new tyre is cheaper :wink:
    £1.10 per ml. Silver is probably cheaper per gram.
    For that money does someone apply it for me every time it needs it?

    Curious how much will you will use to dress a tyre? A tenners worth? 50 quids worth?
    There are those days I just can’t be bothered and just slap stuff on and will end up using £100 on 1 tyre.
    I’ve been using the same bottle of car pro Perl for 3-4 years and still have at least half left. Think it was only £15.

    Autoglym Leather Care. I plan on removing the shine from my steering wheel and getting it back to a nice matte finish.

    Bargain to see me through the winter cleaning, to try and keep it looking shiny in the forthcoming dull and cold months.

    Nice haul you got there!

    You will find it more a cost of time than money when taking care of your own car.

    Be nice to see all your hard graft.

    Just a heads up. Amazon Black Friday has the autoglym polar blast/wash/seal on sale. Think it’s 25-30% off

    I stumbled across this site when I was having issues with the EGR and DPF. Here I am a few months later: swapping out wheel bearings, cv boots, upgrading to the honey comb grille, and a new head unit. Also picked up Trups' LED lighting kit.

    Most of the detailing products I purchased were based on jassyo06's recommendations.

    Much appreciated.

    5L of 1900:1 shampoo (best shampoo per John at FD)
    1L of Car Chem QD

    All came to £21 with free shipping. Absolute steal.

    Ye got a Macan.....WTF did ye cash in a pension ....or what...lol preferred yer Q5 te be honest....anyway l think these brushes verge on the slightly too aggressive side for using on alloys especially diamond cut or high gloss black alloys

    Haha.....I decided to spend some of the kids inheritance, as I’ve decided we’re only here once, so got to make the most of it!! Whilst I did really like my Q5, I wanted to change it before the depreciation hit hard and, as there wasn’t anything in the Audi range I fancied, I started to look elsewhere.....F-Pace, E-Pace, Evoque, Velar, GLC, Macan....and the Macan came out on top for me, so I thought...****** it.....let’s go for it lol!! :yes: If Audi bring out an updated Q5 in the future, then I may come back into the fold!

    I agree that the brush is too hard for the actual alloys, but as I use Wheel Woolies for these, this brush will be used to help clean the wheel arches :icon thumright:

    I've ordered a few things from Carchem after seeing Adam14's post. First time with them but worth a go at those prices. Shampoo, glass cleaner, tyre gel applicator and a couple of other things that I can't remember to take it to £26
