    Washed and waxed the car and finished it off with Sonax BSD recommend by a friend of mine, and I must say I'm very impressed with the beading you get with this stuff.
    Cost me £11.99 for a 750ml spray and you get 3 micro fibre cloths thrown in as well bargain.
    Cheers

    It is good stuff. ECP often do a deal on this for around £4 80 for a 750ml bottle.
    I think there may be an offer on at the moment.

    Looks good ,but see how it goes after the sun get on it . Just after rainfall you will end up with white markes all over the paintwork. And mercedes do have this paint protection guard .So clean water and car shampoo is all you need.

    If that happens you have put too much on, after 4 coats there is no point in applying more, just dry off after washing with a microfiber cloth.

    Starguard is rubbish

    This^^^^

    Rain will not make this stuff run unless you have far too much on the car and it is not dry.

    If it does it's either not genuine stuff or it's a faulty batch (which I've yet to hear of)

    As long as you don't drink it or wash with it you should be fine. I've been using the stuff for around 4yrs now and I detail cars. I'm still here and I haven't grown a second cock yet..... ;)

    Well it needs to get through the clearcoat, paint and primer first.

    Ive seen the effects of silicone based polishes on a 5 year old red mustsang a few years ago, from 10 meters it looked great, but up close it was terrible, had a milky look to it... Hence they consulted with chemists and major paint companies, Bowden's Own was born.

    C2 has a completely different makeup to BSD.

    C2 will make the car feel extremely slick. Whereas BSD your fingers will grip the car slightly.

    They repel water in different ways. As the saying goes, many ways to skin a cat.

    I used to use C2v3 and it does perform well. It categorically does not last the up to 8mths they claim on a daily driver. You'll be lucky with 2 unless you garage the car and don't drive unless the weather is perfect.

    BSD will last a bit longer. But in my experience it holds the beading properties a LOT longer than C2v3.

    C2v3 wins for feel. But I don't stroke my car and not sure anyone does apart from when it's first done.

    If you want something durable with incredible water repellency I would look at Sonax Polymer Net Shield, fairly cheap and really good
