but rather why does my Meg gold shampoo leave a soapy film all over the car after rinsing? Admitedly I think its in desperate need of some wax as it doesn't bead at all but I would have a good dosing of clean water would get rid of all the soap!
The instructions are in Fluid Oz (typical yanks stuff why can't they work in ml like the rest of the civilised world ) but I did the math once before and I put in the equivalent of approx a tablespoon in a bucket. It's more than enough, believe me.
Using a QD while drying has become quite popular. When you do your final rinse you use a gentle stream of water instead of a fierce spray and the water sheets off the paintwork (this is assuming your car is properly waxed of course). You then dry it with a suitable microfibre towel with a couple of sprays of QD at the same time. I can dry my whole car without wringing out my waffle weave once.

I've just washed it in the (almost freezing) cold using a bit less soap (3 instead of 4). I think before I might have been washing it when too warm - difficult to avoid when I have a south facing drive - and it was drying on the car.
I usually take the sprayer off the hose and just soak it as much as possible - it never sheets so I know its lacking wax!
I just SRP'd the back half (too lazy to do it all today). Ran out of time to wax it though I hope the SRP will help to stop all the dirt sticking (to the back anyway).
What do you use for drying? I had a megs drying towel which I now know is cr*p. I appear to have lost it (luckily!!) so I will need to buy a replacement.
