Waxed Sportwagon

Ok, so maybe I waxed it last week but I only got round to taking pictures today after a wash...

I also took advantage of the 25% off Halfords Fully Synthetic 5w40 and did an oil and filter change. It had done over 6000m on 10w40 and only used 1/4l so I will see how the 5w40 lasts... It sure sounds a little smoother

Products used:
Autoglym Shampoo
AG Super Resin Polish
AG Extra Gloss Protection
AG Wheel Sealer
Megs Quick Detailer Spray
AG Microfibre Cloths x3

Here she is at Glenshee last week, laughing at all the BMWs getting stuck in the carpark...

Overall I am very impressed with the AG stuff, well worth the ££

That's it for now

Get your self some Aquawax to maintain your hard work after each wash. It's a miracle product!
