Thumbs Up Liquid Diamond - Simoniz

A guy at work has just given me a bottle of ‘Liquid Diamond Simoniz’ to try on my car. Has anyone on here used it before and is it any good

Used it once, wasn't too happy with the results and binned the rest of the bottle.

Ask yourself, why is he giving it away!

As hammy said it's more than likely dirt.

Re: Liquid Diamond - Simoniz

I used to use it many years ago before they took it off the market here. It's a sealer not a carnauba wax. Probably very old technology.

Put it this way: It's better than nothing but there are many many better products available.

Re: Liquid Diamond - Simoniz

I have used it and thought it was OK.

Simoniz Max Wax is better however.

I don't understand why people rave about Autoglym products though, I found them very average, and hard work too. The only one of their products I use is Bumper Care.

They are very average.....which is why so many people use them

Dave KG, of Detailing World fame, calls them "the Vauxall of detailng products"

I'm sure it's fine. Pour the contents into a premium brand bottle and you probably wouldn't notice the difference.....

I think there very easy to use. But then I get the AG gear cheap so that's one reason why I use em lol. I wouldn't if I was paying Halfrobbing*******sords. They aren't worth the money. I thought their wax wasn't great but then I must have another go off it again.

Dave knows his stuff,
He was at the Scottish Italian Car Day last May doing demos, I arranged with the AROC guys for him to attend.
