    Hi all, I currently use Mothers Carnuba Cleaner Wax which works well on the car. I've tried Autoglym Super Resin Polish but find it leaves streaks and temporary stains in the paint. Not ideal. Whilst the Mothers stuff works nicely, I want the ultimate shine, regularly. So I need something that...

    If so, what ingredients are you using? Castor oil seems a fave.

    My full time car came with a nice big bag of BMW protect items. I was looking at the BMW tyre shine and it says on there it should only be used 3 to 4 times a year. When I collect my Spider this saturday I want to try to keep it in as close to showroom as possible which would have included...

    Folks, Just got our Alfa 147 back from an insurance repair centre. Nice body repair but they valeted the car and sprayed the dash with 'gloop'!! I hate this. The dash had a classy matt black finish and now there is some sort of silicon shine on it. I've had this happen on another car and I...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    After buying and owning a 2010 159 1.9 Jtdm Ti for just over 3 weeks I am now feeling that getting rid of my Saab 93 Aero was not such a smart move. The main reason for the change was fuel consumption. The Saab averaged around 30 mpg. The Alfa at the moment is averaging 33 mpg. This is nothing...

    Hi all as you know I have a silver 3.2 Ti. I would like to restore the shine to the bodywork for the "better than new" look. The car is registered as a 2013 but was obviously a 2012 delivery and it stood some time in the sun exposed to the elements. It looks very good, smells brand new but could...

    Just asking what sort of standards are expected in show n' shine competitions? I know that they're not concours inspections, but are there any basics? My local car club are having their family club day on Sun and also a small show n' shine comp. Not sure what the competition will be, so need...

    Pictures of the results of using Autoglym's Ultra Deep Shine on my etna black mito, after using the bodywork shampoo conditioner. The best car product that I have ever used! It is slightly abrasive in order to remove light scratches and swirls from the paint. I've also found that its great...
  15. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hello. I tried to do some adjustments on my front lights because the left was shinning very high and the right very low. During this procedure i heared an instant noise as the interior reached the "dead end" and then "collapse". Same at both of the front lights. Till then the mechanism we...

    does anyone have any tips on what I can use to bring back and retain the shine to my exhaust? I'm wary of using "chrome" cleaners as I don't know exactly what it's made of, and don't fancy damaging it but I can't get it to shine after just using some Turtle Wax and a sponge :( wouldn't mind...

    To be honest I stumbled across this product by accident as I thought I was buying a normal shampoo, where as in fact I'd describe it simply as a spray on wax. Curious Top Gloss Shine Shampoo - BUY A 500ML OR 1 LITRE SIZE AND GET THE SAME BOTTLE FREE - Bestsellers I was shocked by the results...

    There's been adverts about this on TV, so did a quick look up and watched the video and it sounds pretty good, but had anybody tried this stuff? Can't see myself using this all the time to wash my car, but would come in handy from time to time. I'm not convinced, that it won't scratch the...
