Gotta love the snow foam.

It's looking pretty good - very purposeful.  :cool:

A good machine polish will bring that black back to it's best.

Yeah I love it; thankfully since we moved I don't get so many strange looks when I use it  :grin:

Thanks  :smiley:  couple of the wheels need a refurb and then a good old detailing session with Grant @ Urban Details will be on the cards......

I just wish I could find some of the products that you guys rave about...I recently spend a whole day visiting various car wash places in my city (2nd biggest in Bulgaria) and, without fail, they all use dishwashing liquid.

No one had ever heard of snow foam, clay thingies or any of the other things you guys use.

In the meantime, my Golf4 looks like it has been dragged through the river...backwards!! Mechanically perfect, but looks like sh!t!!

Maybe it's a good thing that none of it's available, it will save you a fortune :rolleyes:

That's one way to look at it I suppose.  :grin:

It is a shame but kalimon's right - it's a slippery slope and can end up being a costly hobby, lol.  Looking on here doesn't help either!

Maybe you need to kick things off and start a detailing revolution in Bulgaria, haha!

Got the car prepped for Pistonheads Sunday Service at Bruntingthorpe while I had the time today. Usual routine + light polish with Dodo Juice Lime Prime and topped off with Collinite 845. If only the sun had come out properly!

Now I've just got to keep it this clean until Sunday morning  :laugh:

Wow! That looks superb. :cool: Collinite 845 is my favourite 'easy on, easy off' waxes. Durability isn't bad either.

Thanks! Yeah it really is lovely to apply! It's definitely a fave of mine too
