depends how you use it, i buff it off once applied, lasts around a month, i use 2 rags to buff it, fantastic results..

after each wash i just buff over it with the cleaner rag out of the 2 i use to apply it, brings it up shiny again, as said above, just re aply monthly

There is! (Well almost). C4 nano stuff is meant to be absolutely brilliant, linky below.

This stuff lasts for years, wont wash off, but its not cheap.

Now, I've just bought some Meguiar's Trim Detailer (http://meguiarsdirect.com/detail/MEG+G10810) as I'd heard good things from a friend. I applied it to the rear spoiler (is that what that's called - the black bit at the top of the rear window?) and it has come up an absolute treat.

I'll do the other bits later and hopefully get some before and after shots of the plastic.

I used to use that, but it tends to "streak" after being rained on or washed. Zaino Z16 is a lot better IMO.  :smiley:

I'll give it a go and see how I get on - my Dad wanted some anyway so I can offset the costs on him  :wink:
