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.

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.

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.

Made the leap of faith today and bought some Carbon Collective goodies. Been keeping an eye on them for a while, and the 20% off was all I needed to make a few purchases :racer:

I like most of their products to be fair. Very good quality.

Ordered one of these EZ Detail EZGO Go Brush for cleaning my wheel arches :icon thumright:

View attachment 212749

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:

Works great on the arches, that is all I use mine for. Have softer wheel woolies and other for the alloys

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
