Gave it an evening speed wash before it goes into Lepsons in the morning for wheel refurb and new tyres fitting.  Tried the new Gyeon Silk Dryer Towel too.  Very good!

+1 for stunning!

That drying towel looks huge! Of the drying towels I've tried, my favourite is the Wo-Wo one. I like the fact that it's not too big, so no risk of dragging on the ground, and the double thickness means it's really absorbent.

Thanks. :smiley:

Michelin PS4S all round.  Had Conti 5Ps on last two cars now and they are brilliant but fancy a change.

It is a big towel, they do a smaller one but I wanted the bigger on as I like a big towel for the roof and windscreen.  I usually use a Chemical Guys Wooly Mammoth on the roof but wanted to try something new.  WoWo towels are still my favourites as I love twin layer towels but the Gyeon is very very good. Not better but just dries in a different way and is excellent for the big panels horizontal where water sits.  I will probably get the smaller one too.  My all time favourite towel is the WoWo wheel towel - it is just perfect.

Currently enjoying the delights of this.  It will not get the 'treatment'.  :laugh:

It's ok, a bit of fun actually.  I don't mind a crap car for a few days, makes me appreciate what I've got.
