    Don't let all the product fool you:). I wash my car about once a month. I just like trying all the new goodies that come out. However, I don't drive the car every day and it lives in a garage (heaping more shame on me for all the product I have:oops:).

    She has a point, I’d love a garage I could actually use for it’s correct purpose.

    The (TW) stuff I'm using is really good and cheap compared to other stuff in my arsenal.

    Over the last several years, once you refuse to be taken in by hype and the youtube plugged stuff, your collection will diminish and you will not find yourself rushing for a new this that and other product.

    You will know what does a great job delivering the results you need and usually you may well have a couple items of each in the line up to help versatility mixing brands and price ranges. Just buy what works, not what the manufacturers tell you will work!

    Whilst I'm also in agreement that expensive doesnt always mean better, TW is hardly a top end/high price brand, and to compare it with Meguiars, which is also resolutely middle market is interesting.
    In my experience, more expensive product, if from a trustworthy brand is usually a better product.

    I just like trying the new stuff. I still think one of the best I've tried is "Duragloss Aquawax (I have about 2/3 of a bottle left but went through several when I lived in OZ (before the market became flooded with so many new products).

    While watching one of the “Chemical Guys” YouTube videos, the guy was using a Blower for drying.
    It’s a great idea, as the drying process can cause scratches.
    Has anyone got/ use one ? I do occasionally use one of “Her indoors “ old hair dryers for giving my wheels a blast to get the water out of the nut recess.

    Think I gave £30 in Homebase, but right now they will be full price.

    Take a look at the water filter, uses no electricity, works in the rain etc

    There are two types - a smallish unit (~£65-00) that you dispose of when the resin stops working and one like the race-glaze unit that is refillable. Cost per rinse on the RG unit is much lower.
