Achem Hi-Shine
« on: 18 May 2017, 10:48 »
Hi all,
Does anyone know of places other than Achem direct which sell Hi-Shine tyre dressing. I have been quoted silly amounts to post to NI. For 5 litres the carriage is more expensive than the product!  :huh:

I think you can only buy it direct, but worth asking Neil from Wo-Wo on here as I believe he might know. Why not give them a call to ask.

Thanks for your reply Booth11 :smiley:
Hopefully Neil will see this at some stage. I have emailed them and asked but they couldn't tell me apparently!  :laugh:

I'm not aware of anywhere that sells it - however TK Maxx did have some Quarts tyre dressing which is the same product.

Confirm what Neil says.  I previously used it branded as Quarts and currently as Achem Hi-shine - exactly same great tyre dressing.

Why don't you buy some of the snow foam too to spread the cost of shipping over the two bottles?

Snow Storm Extreme I think its called?

Just had a look at that snow foam and it says it's high ph, will that not be bad for the cars paint?
