    Tyres looking super lip glossy. Going try some of that when my bulk buy off 'back to black' spray cans are all used up.

    Love those alloys rim style for easy cleaning. Always found the 5 spoke rims the quickest to keep clean.

    Sore back eased off and I cleaned my car today. That woolie wheel brush is good.

    By the way, saw tyre shine mentioned. Anybody used Megiara Endurance tyre gel stuff. Best there is for me.

    @Evil Derboy - There’s a couple or 3 of us that like megs endurance tyre gel @q5man @Tashfeen
    I’ve tried quite a few tyre dressings in the past & always come back to the megs tbh
    The durability & looks of it work for me

    Just don’t ask the grumpy @jassyo06 as he thinks any product other than he uses is guff ! lol

    I'm in the same boat. Tried loads over time and ended up coming back to the Megs. It's best I've tried.

    and... yes strange that you should mention @jassyoo6's attitude to towards products... I have noticed a certain editorial tone... :grinning::grinning:

    Well off the top of me bonce l can list 4 tyre dressings that are far superior to Megs Endurance in every way Tac systems tyre gel, Gyeon Q2m tyre dressing, Fireball Tyre wax, Autoglym High performance tyre dressing and another one worth a mention is Car Pro Pearl undiluted. ..... Megs is too oily and does not cure hence its a Dust magnet, its old school but who am l too say what's a good and guff product?

    Make sure you prepare it properly before applying the ceramic coating or the low frequencies from that thing will throw the ceramic straight of

    If I was you I'll just apply 'BSD' and sit back and admire not only the shine but extra bass that it will produce

    @jassyo06 on the other thread you mentioned about the fuel flap on your S3. Is the issue that it is temperamental and won't close after you've filled up the fuel? Mine (A3) just started doing that where it won't close everytime.

    Didn’t really bother much with products on my old B6 as it wasn’t in that great a shape body wise but I’m getting together a nice selection of products now thanks to reading your different posts thanks guys.

    Bought a few bits today,

    Dodo Juice leather sealant
    Purple monster 1800 gsm towels
    Bilt Hamber auto wash
    Bilt Hamber alloy wheel cleaner
    New bucket and grit guard

    Going to try the Carplan Demon Foam when I can get to Halfords to pick some up, only had the car 3 days and it’s filthy so it’s first good clean next Monday.

    My fuel Flap mechanism wouldn't release the flap, it stayed in the closed position ,so they forced it open and cut off the end of the spring loaded nodule that rotates to lock the flap mate

    Received it yesterday and had a quick blast. It's not as powerful as a Sidekick, but I wasn't expecting it to, to be honest. Yet to try it on my car, but with the quick fiddle I had yesterday, it will be suitable for wheels and shuts etc. It couldn't do the whole car, but nor could the sidekick (which I'll try to fix at some point - hopefully just the motor brushes, which thankfully PB sell).

    Well l phoned them and described the condition of the thing....they offered to me give £50 off if l kept...so now l am £50 Richer.... pardon the pun...lol............out came the 12 mm throw mini DA with a very soft polishing pad one you'd apply a wax with....plus Menzerna 3800...took ages...changed the pad to a orange polishing pad ....Job....done....stunning finish it left....l cant emphasise enough if yer into machine polishing you need one these mini Dual action machines..............so easy to use and l think they give better results than the Big uns....simply because you can control them better and its easier to perfect yer polishing technique
