    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    Even buying new you can be assured stone chips/small marks etc are gonna happen and probably fairly quickly. I bought my car new a year ago and it’s littered in stone chips but it doesn’t bother me. Unless you’re up close and sniffing your front bumper like Jassy then you don’t notice them ;-)

    What Detailing / Car Care Products Have You Bought / Ordered Today?

    Just arrived today from China - another 2 packs of foam applicator pads. The 24 pads cost me less than £3 from eBay, excellent pads and do the job and for that price I don’t mind discarding after one use. They’re from China and take a few weeks to arrive but for less than £2 a pack which...

    Leather cleaning and conditioning?

    Always possible I guess. I think maybe I use too much shampoo, it’s like what you might think would be left if you cleaned something with a soap and didn’t rinse it. Next time I’ll try wiping it all down with a damp cloth to remove more of the shampoo and then dry it after that.

    Leather cleaning and conditioning?

    Yea pretty much what I do, its like either the shampoo or the shield doesn’t dry clear. It’s not terrible but in certain lights it is noticeable. Like I say maybe just a damp cloth will sort it.

    Leather cleaning and conditioning?

    I use valet pro leather cleaner and brush and colourlock shield from advice on here. I do find I’m left with streaks after following the method though. Probably nothing a damp mf won’t solve tbf but still.

    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    The aroma is identical to a ceramic coating? I may be crazy but I’ve never stuck my nose to the paintwork and gave it a good sniff :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    Gazebo

    Haha pretty much. Yea I think looking at it seems like it’s probably a bit impractical and/or very pricey. Could maybe manufacture something myself anchored from the house maybe but probably a bit of a faf. Best get myself a house with a nice big undercroft....I wish haha

    Gazebo

    Neighbours already think I’m a bit mental as it is so not sure how a gazebo would go down. I also wonder about the practicality cos it will probably move about in the wind and not sure how easily tethered these things are when in a driveway.

    Gazebo

    Not sure if this has been discussed much but does anyone own/use a gazebo to help with their car cleaning, and if so any pics/recommendations? Problem I find is that it takes just a matter of minutes from a final rinse and initial dry for the car to start building up with tiny bits of fallout...

    Alloy brush

    Yea I like my wheel woolies but was disappointed the smallest brush doesn’t fit in the little gap part of the 5-wing arm alloys. Gotta use a mf and pull through like dental floss. Anyone recommend a brush for this size, it doesn’t need to be anything special as it’s just for this one small gap...

    Alloy brush

    Wheel woolies for me but haven’t tried the others. I find the tiny brush not that useful but the calliper one is good.

    What Detailing / Car Care Products Have You Bought / Ordered Today?

    I really want some seal feed but I’ve drawn the line, it’s too pricey. I’d suggest a bottle would literally last me 10 years but still.

    What do you like about the ceramic coating on your car?

    All of the above. It makes the not fun bits easier and quicker, leaving more time to do the more rewarding finer finishing bits.

    Quality mitt for sure. Had mine a year now and it goes in washer every time and it’s still as good as day 1.

    Which car shampoo?

    There is no definition that needs to be upheld as to whether someone is detailing their car or just cleaning it. Suggesting ceramic coating is not for detailers is crazy, I’d actually suggest the opposite. It’s like saying a professional golfer shouldn’t have the best clubs because they are the...

    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    Yes totally this, my A3 after a year was fairly caked in fallout etc. But my S3 with this ultra on there is almost none! It is really really top drawer. And like you say, less dirt that sticks the less chance of marring.

    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    I had CSL + C2V3 on my last A3, ultra + exo is a different level. Because I didn’t have ultra on the A3 I can’t say for sure how superior Exo is, but I think it’s longevity is definitely better. When I dry the car I use a 50/50 mix of C2/water as a drying aid/QD to finish off the car and this I...

    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    Fair enough but like I say there are no visible marks on my paintwork, not visible under LEDs or sunlight, it’s in the same condition it was when it left the detailers a year ago. I actually don’t think it could be polished for any improvement because it is flawless to the human eye. And I’m not...

    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    If your paint marks so easily would you not benefit from a ceramic coating? I don't mean this disrespectfully but I am amazed that someone who obviously takes mega care during the wash process has to polish out marks so often. I know I talk about how good the Gtechinq Ultra+Exo is but seriously...
