Re: What products have you bought this year?

Bloody loads, mostly Mags, every time I go in Halfrauds for one thing I get three because of their 3 for 2 offer.
Since I got my 166 I'm obsessed with cleaning her, my neighbour reckons I will wear the paint off and need a respray.
After reading these forums and others have completely changed the wash I clean cars now.
I may even make some money my boss wants his Land Rover cleaned, after I showed him how good it could look, told him £100 he is thinking about it, should just about cover what I have spent so far
Want to get a polishing machine and then use the wife's Citroen to practice on.
