Phil, I can't keep up with all your purchases! Good review there, I'm thinking about going the sealant route once all my wax runs out (about 4 years time) and will probrably try some gtechniq stuff.

Also what's this lime prime tip for the mirror surrounds?

P.S. Are you even halfway through any of you bottles yet?

Looks good.

Hope its not too much £££ as it seems to do the same as my W5 Nano Solution from Lidl.

G1 is an excellent product

It outlasts and outsheets everything on the market..... maybe besides Nanolex glass sealent (these products are undergoing side by side tests by numerous people but both claim 2 years durability so don't expect results anytime soon). Nicer to work with than the Nanolex though

Ha ha, i bought this in November mate but its been too cold to apply and it looked complicated so i kept putting it off which turned out to be silly of me. RE the LP Lite i had wax marks on my plastics and was recommended it to remove them after trying everything else. Its looking good but they usually do for about a aweek. Watch this space. Saying that mind ive just bought Mellow Yellow, CG BAre Bones and some VP Tar & Glue.

Its around £15 for the kit although the G1 is around £9 on its own.
Kits // G|Techniq
How long does that stuff last though mate? Ive just bought some of the W5 screen wash in Lemon & Lime.

I last applied it before summer last year. Still going, except for the driver's side where I used cerium oxide to try and remove some scratches. Weird 50/50 after it has rained. After I have polished the whole screen i'll have to reapply but should be even better as the screen will be spotless.

Oh well, in that case it sounds like a good buy. I did mean to get some myself tbh. I went with the G1 as it stops ice bonding and i had an issue with the MiTo windows sticking.
Thanks Phil

Just don't use the "sponge" they include. Looks and feels like one of those oasis sponges they use in florists.
