for the products they seem great and would like to get my self some shortly

but just wish to check useages etc

stage 1,2,3 and Gold Class Wax

i take it you only use 1 and 2 and like thise post the scratch bits once and a while and then 3 and Gold Class Wax all the time

I have only used stage 1 once in 4 months on the S2000. I generally do stages 2,3 once every month or so and in between I use the Gold Class Wax(combo of wax and polish).

If you clean regularly e.g. once a week I do not think there is too much use for stage 1 that often. If your car is parked under trees there may be a more common need for the Stage 1.

I will probably use stage 1 twice a year.

Stages 2 and 3 make the car look perfect!

Using stage 3 by itself IMO is a bit pointless, use 2 and 3 or if lazy use Gold Class. Stage 3 only protects the stage 2 and will not add anymore shine.

I think the 3 stages with the Gold Class will easily last me more than 1 year.

Hope that helps?

Im sorry for not replying sooner, cant believe that I didnt see the questions after the post I made!!!

Amla with regards to your issue, would suggest washing and using the clay bar, it removes tree sap, industrial fallout etc and will leave your paintwork like glass.

You should try the Stage 2 and 3 you will be absolutley amazed with the results in comparison to Auto**ym I do my car the same as Moff about once a month. Then when I wash inbetween polishing/waxing I simply use Quik Detailer to give it that "just waxed" look. Only trouble is I go through so much detailer!! lol /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
