Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

Firstly let me preface this by saying, no, I do not work for Autoglym.

After using Meguiars and Mother's Canuba Waxes, I decided to give Autoglym's Ultra Deep Shine a go on my Black Alfa 156.

What a spectacular result!

By far a better shine and finish than anything else I've used. Real showroom quality.

My six-year-old Alfa looked like it had just rolled off the production line.

And the best part about it is that it's a one step application. No need for other resins and polishers before application.

The only minor drawback is that it was quite tough going removing the wax by hand.

Well worth it though.

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

i'd agree, and i've tried all sorts of stuff too. I'd call it a lazy one step option that makes mildly tired paint look amazing - not good for restoring old stuff, but great on new stuff. the trick is to take the haze off a panel at a time, otherwise it's staying there..

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

Well I've always used the autoglym range & have had very good results but I'm now moving on to new territory with other waxes that others have recommended I was given a website called detailed obsession & they have quite a few new to me products on there so I'm giving it a go so to speak.....

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

I did Clare's GT today with AG UDS. Used the mains powered buffers to apply and then took off with microfibre. Very good results Top Tip - apply sparingly and leave to dry for c10 minutes Easy to get off then

If I had the time I would have topped it off with EGP or even better, the HD Wax which is megga So easy to apply yet so easy to buff off. As far as I'm concerned it's the ultimate

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

I've used it on mine and it is ok, but it leaves shed loads of dust. I had to polish on then polish polish off and then dust it with a microfibre.

Simon - agreed - if I have time I'll shove EGP on the 159 & GT - otherwise its Aquawax - I am addicted - smells like Hubba Bubba gum!!!!....Also the HD Wax is jizzmatic.

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

never really got on with this stuff, i like the SRP and EGP , but tried the UDS on my black R1 and agree its hard to remove although once removed it did give a good result and shine, not as good as i thought it would be.

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

I used UDS on my old Alfa 156 with amazing results. It looked great and better than showroom. Not the easiest to apply/remove but far better than some. If some find it dusty it means you're applying it with a trowl, apply sparingly and you won't get these problems. Must give the GTA a coat!

Personally never tried Zymol, I think it's products are too expensive.

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

Never been a big fan of AutoGlym stuff. I've used Megs Gold Class for ages.
Swapped to Dodo Juice (Blue Velvet carnauba wax as the 156 is black) this summer and currently well happy with the results!

Detailed Obsession do Dodo stuff as well - they're a great site for detailing products. Migh be worth a look.

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

....well, here in my country there is a lot of fuss lately about Meguiars and Mother's products. Being an AutoGlym fan, I thought I should give Meguiars a try, but honestly, I can't even compare the results with AG, the latter is by far better and also cheaper

Too right it isn't, although there are a few who remain "uneducated" - there are many better products available at a similar price; Chemical Guys for one.

I've got a wide range of products from various manufacturers....... only just got my first CG products though, the speed wipe and the synthetic detailer in US gallon size, I use alot of quick detailer type products!

Got them from this company who are actually based in Scotland - carwashnwax - for 50.

Only used the Speed Wipe so far and I'm very impressed, it even smells of strawberries!

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

I use Autoglym because its avaliable from the local shops ane i dont have to faf getting it off the net. I do find it a great range of products. I use SRP, UDS, Gloss Guard, and if im feeling lazy Aquawax.
I was initially very pleased with Aquawax but i now think it leaves too many swirl marks. No substitute for hard work applying and rubbing off IMHO

Re: Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine

Never used UDS but since I've now bought the HD Wax I think there is little point in getting UDS...

Aquawax or any other product thats just a wax wont do anything about swirls, its just for a drying aid and protection/shine top up. Polish or all in one type products do the swirl removal.
Sometimes the Aquawax looks greasy i think though if not finished off with a dry enough bit of cloth.....
