Will try the wheel cleaner I currently use megs hot rims but its an absolute killer on the wallet i get through one bottle every 2-3 cars would like somthing that lasts longer than that haha
I'm not a snow foam lance user so can't really help there.

You can dilute the Bilberry as required down to 1:5 for light soil, so it can go a long way :cool:

I would try ag uds and then ag hd wax as it looks great on my black e46 much deeper than the srp method

does anyone else here use chemical guys all in one?

ive used it on black, turquoise, red, white, and silver so far. and i quite like it.

it seems to last well and gives decent results even by hand. finished with butter wet wax of course its booootiful :D


have got some megs 105/205 on the way to try them out too. shall see how i get on with them :)

This is a top thread, guys- I'm learning so much!

I've tried AG SRP - Megs Premium Class Carnauba Liquid Wax on my slate grey 307cc to great effect.

hoping to try my new AG SRP, EGP, HD wax combo on it very soon. MEANWHILE, I love the Carlack/Collinite combo - it's so much bang for your buck...

hello all,

spent the day detailing the car,

bmw z3m

silver

(pics to follow)

first of all i gave the car a wash with zymol shampoo followed by iron x on the wheels and bodywork.

was suprised, the wasnt many iron contaminates on the wheels or bodywork (clean car!)

then i gave a once over with a sonus yellow pad with mez 500 and 4000 (das 6 pro)

came out ok, but need to try a different compound/pad combination as the paint is very hard.

i then washed and dryed the car again.

i then used some zymol hd cleanser (pre wax cleaner) on the bodywork.

this stuff was excellent preparation for my wax.

treated the wheels to some 3m marine wax and the tyres to autoglym tyre shine.

good stuff.

lastly the first of 3 coats of zymol glasur wax (well impressed with this stuff).

sat and sun will add 2nd and 3rd coats of wax.

New favourite summer wax by Britemax Vantage, so easy to use, do the whole car by which time it's ready to buff off. Leaves a really glossy, deep finish which beads beautifully. Longevity has yet to be tested.

I'll take some pics this weekend when I wash the car and apply a 2nd coat.
