Giving my Ti the full works

I've been a busy boy today. First off I washed the car, then whilst still yet I clayed it with Bilt Hamber soft clay, using a mixture of shampoo and lots of water through my hose gun as lube, then I washed it again and dried it. Then for some AG SRP applied with those excellent palm pads. Polished off and then sealed with Lifeshine paint sealer. Easy to put on and after 15 or so minutes, easy to get off. The car is now as clean, shiny and smooth as it's ever been Will do the rest of the Lifeshine treatment tomorrow. PS. Bought the kit, brand new and sealed off an Audi dealer on ebay for £15 delivered

SR do you recommend them Autoglym pads? or are they just a bit of a gimmick?

What sort of cloth are you using to remove the Autoglym SRP?

Have you used AG Ultra Deep Shine and how does it compare to SRP?

The palm pads are great. Really precise and easy to use. Used ag's polishing cloth net to get the SRP off. SRP really needs a sealer like EGP on top but UDS is standalone. With all AG products, use a little as it goes a long way. Overdo it and it's harder to get off.

I seen the pads in a local autofactor and just wasn't sure of them, going to give them a punt me thinks! I've noticed whilst using UDS i've been getting a marring effect on my bonnet that i can't seem to wipe/clean off so hopefully with the pads and AG's clothes it might reduce it.

Cheers for the advice.
