I have no choice but to park under a big Oak tree overnight. Would I be correct in thinking that when used post bubble bath, this will reduce the adhesion of the copious amounts of sap and bird guano that seem to be magically attracted to my lovely (white) chariot?

Some silicone polishes or cutting compounds will temporarily fill/mask the scratches which would be ideal when using this type of polisher. There should be different bonnets for applying, buffing and finishing. Straight overlapping slow passes across the panel side to side then up and down. You get use to the vibration. Its trial and error to get the best finish.
WAWG
I started out with one of these years back, they are ok for applying/buffing polish and wax and the bonnets are usually cheap to buy. Just don't expect to get swirls and scratches out with one of these.
lol tried it over the weekend...shakes like hell?? so stopped after 5 mins on a small panel.. My cousin managed to do the full car with it successfully car is shining....although a closer look i feel more scratches have been revealed. He applied polish directly onto the car, waited then onto the polisher.

Not sure if it was done correctly just followed a YouTube clip.
I hope these increase in value over time as I got an rac branded one about ten years ago and it's still currently in my shed unused!

This is an old model...they now have the 'plus' model with a better lance and control with no need to change them just to get a different jet as they are built into it (3-in-1) and seems much better than having stacks of tools to lug around. You can get a refurbished 'plus' unit for about £20 less, alas without the patio cleaner attchmnt https://www.karcheroutlet.co.uk/products/product.asp?id=5817

to be honest the new full control range have had a poor right up. I got a k7 compact with the same attachments from Homebase for £259. 160bar and Flo rate of 600 ltrs per min. it's a fantastic machine.
At this price u might as well give the aldi workzone one a try. Check my post history n u'll see. £79.99 for 150 bar,2.2kw. N this is £296 for 145 bar,2.1kw

I always find this spot on for cleaning the car, and what price last time i got my bottle i paid £3.
Agreed the top is a bit dodgy (Or can be) but. £1 for 1L still an absolute steal..
I always use this works well, but the lid is terrible if you over tighten, the top will crack open..
Good find - Thank you... Just picked up 5 (_;)

I've one of these, well a similar brand. On the right lance setting, very good for rinsing the car after a hand wash. Godsend when you live in a 4th floor flat and obsess over your car like I do.

Just re an earlier comment, wouldn't use this to apply a traffic film remover, I have a 2ltr hand spray bottle for that :)

Power washer or glorified weedkiller sprayer?
+1
I'm pretty sure I've seen my local council haz-mat workers using these at the side of the road, trying to shift the dandelions. I can't see it actually having any puff to 'clean' a vehicle but could be used to spurt traffic film remover over it.
Calling it a 'power' washer is stretching the definition somewhat (it's arm 'power') - on that basis my workshop is full of 'power' tools: I've just been using my 'power' hammer to put up a picture and those 'power' pliers are brilliant!
don't bother with this, its ok but no better than a garden spray thing

Sports Direct are providing the venue for the Shirebrook firefighters' car wash today. I know many people have strong views about Sports Direct, but I don't think that'd be adequate reason to stay away if you were otherwise inclined to support this worthy appeal (and get your car washed).
Tomorrow's station is:
• Long Eaton

I'm hoping I'll pass that fire station on the bus this afternoon, and will look out for a banner so I can add the times. But if there's a Long Eatonian who knows the times, please add them in a comment below!

Additions welcome. Apologies if I've overlooked any stations added in the comments above.

Cold, because you just know they'll expect at least £5 and make you feel bad if you give less.
I wondered why there were so many cold votes. You had the guts to say why you voted cold, so, thanks for that courtesy.

I'll give the going rate for a wash and go, which is in the £3 to £4 range round here.

Don't want to intrude on a thread about cloths but I think you will find that's Voila. It's French unlike the cloths.
Don't want to intrude on an intruding post, but I think you will find it is actually "voila". It doesn't need capitalisation in the middle of a sentence, unlike "France".

True. I normally use it as a standalone sentence. Voila!

Walaaaa is an Urdu word denoting pleasantly surprised or wow, so to assume it was meant to be French at all is a bit premature?.....

I speak Urdu, and when I read your original comment it did seem like you meant to write voila. You can't just throw a random word from a random language and expect an English speaking person to get it.

Anyway, picked up a pack today, was labelled at £11, but scanned at £5.50!

These are great at removing the clear coat from your Car..

Then don't use it at point blank range LMAO!
I've used a few different pressure washers now, with no problems with clear coat.
Where did i say i was gogin to use it at point blank range?
If you have a small defect in the clear coat then a pressure washer even at distance can easily remove the clear coat..
the layer of clear coat use now is very thin, most stone chips on the front of the car will have removed the clear coat and pressure washing this even at a range will cause it to flake away..
I would never clean my car with a pressure washer.. I do not see the reason for a pressure washer to clean the car, they do not clean the car, you need to use a sponge still, so rinsing can be easily done with a hose.Pressure washers are great for cleaning paths etc.. but not cars.
Perhaps you should go online and inform all of those professional detailers - the ones that spend days detailing not 30 minutes on the drive - and tell them that they are doing it wrong.
There are numerous Facebook groups dedicated to detailing too and some of the experts on there are foolishly telling people which power washers to use, which lances are best, the snow foam things, which detergents to use ........
Good job you know what you are on about as cleary these tens of thousands of professionals dont

hmmm... use a combination. foam from the lance / rinse at distance / foam again / micromop continual rinsing without lace fitted. / rinse with lance at distance / microtowel / prefered polish/wax/finish. job dun ( 3 bloody hours !!! ) :) snow foam is really cool.

Not sure why I upset so many people? I only said pressure washers can take the clear coat off.

Then don't use it at point blank range LMAO!
I've used a few different pressure washers now, with no problems with clear coat.
Where did i say i was gogin to use it at point blank range?
If you have a small defect in the clear coat then a pressure washer even at distance can easily remove the clear coat..
the layer of clear coat use now is very thin, most stone chips on the front of the car will have removed the clear coat and pressure washing this even at a range will cause it to flake away..
I would never clean my car with a pressure washer.. I do not see the reason for a pressure washer to clean the car, they do not clean the car, you need to use a sponge still, so rinsing can be easily done with a hose.Pressure washers are great for cleaning paths etc.. but not cars.
Perhaps you should go online and inform all of those professional detailers - the ones that spend days detailing not 30 minutes on the drive - and tell them that they are doing it wrong.
There are numerous Facebook groups dedicated to detailing too and some of the experts on there are foolishly telling people which power washers to use, which lances are best, the snow foam things, which detergents to use ........
Good job you know what you are on about as cleary these tens of thousands of professionals dont

I think that's why you upset so many people. Making stuff up gets on peoples nerves a bit.
Oh right, Im making it up because you dont like what I am saying..
Google it, thousands of forums full of people complaining about the pressure washer at normal range removing clear coat..
You know what I couldn't care less anymore.
mine took my clear coat off near bottom of wheel arch

Its very common mate, I've seen hundreds of threads on auto forums saying the same thing, people using it normally and the the smallest defect in the clear coat can make it an easy target for pressure washers.. there is even a thread with a Porsche 911 bonnet being ruined by it..

I tried to advise people on here are a precaution to it, and i get hammered with arrogant comments about washing cars with sponges etc.. people clearly taking everything so literal.. TBH i couldn't care less if they strip their clear coat or not.

Maffew
Bit of a daft question, but can you adjust the pressure to a relatively low one if you were using it to clean something a little more delicate?
You need the vario lance
Some come with it
Just spoke to a nice lady at Wilko Customer service, she searched for stock for me around Cleveland, she said there was one in the Gateshead store, but this was a price glitch, a system error, she said they have all been repriced at £80, she also said that there were loads of items scanning through at 1p which was also a system error.

So if you managed to get one well done, put the Lottery on you have been very lucky.

Ideal to wash the dog doo from Lytham Green off your kids before you get back in the car.
Can you use warm water in it? Thinking dog too...
We use this to wash the dog off after a muddy walk and before we put her in the car. Work well and very handy for other jobs were a hose won't reach

I really don't need the wheel cleaner.
How come you don't have dirty wheels? :{
Iv started to get my car washed locally by hand wash car shops . Lasts you months compared to washing it at home , although I did use a good shampoo.

Great idea, these places drop and use a spounge on floor then proceed to scrub your car with it .happy swirl marks .

I got ripped off on this kind of deal.

Took my 7 year old Audi in for a health check, the dealer said I should get a new car, so ended up costing me over £350pm.

Thoughtful
we’d like to offer you a free Winter Health Check.
No such thing as a free lunch. All the things they are 'checking' are the cars consumables the clues is in the "any recommended work will be discussed with you. "
And you can bet that a main dealers prices will be much higher than the deals here. All these items are supposed to be checked at the service and the MOT anyway.

You don't have to buy any of the recommendations though. I have two free health checks with BMW every year and it's never cost me anything in 10 years, plus you get a nicely cleaned car when you go back. :)
When I got the spring health check they didn't even bother with the hard sell. Was nothing wrong with my car so just went home with a free car wash and brand new wipers. I don't think they'll make things up to try and sell you stuff you don't need.

Edited By: khald on Dec 08, 2016 23:23
How can anybody mark this hot, when it's fairly obvious it's all just a scam to get you to take your Mercedes into the dealership so they can then find all manner of things which need fixing, as they say there's no free lunch.

Great price. Why on earth is it so dear in the first place though.


So that they don't sell, then Tesco can 'reduce to clear' and get social media advertising for free and get footfall from people seeking the golden wild goose.

Nothing beats Autoglym


Meguiars and beats it hands down.
This is a great shampoo! I purchase 25 litres for around £15.00 @ Costco. My go to shampoos are Bilt hamber auto wash and Turtle wax wash & wax. This is probably Turtle wax's best product they make.
It does the job and it's cheap enough to use sparingly but the way you lot go on you'd think you were married to your car for life

Nice find OP. Be wary of the nextbase dashcam as the rechargeable battery goes in them quite quickly and when they do they stop recording, which makes them useless. It's not a simple change either, mine has just gone after a year or so have a new battery ordered off ebay and the screwdrivers ready! Wished I known you need to open it up before I paid what I did! Good video though even at night, shame nextbase dont sort the battery issues out.https://dashcamtalk.com/forum/threads/nextbase-402g-battery-replacement-ls430.12733/
I think I'll give it a miss then in that case. Any recommendations for a good alternative dashcam?
See above, unless I'm mistaken (happy to be corrected), you wont get a dashcam that has a long battery life, you'll be lucky to get an hour from most units which is why 99% of people will use the 12v power socket or hard wire it in :)
These cams are well reviewed and get decent feedback, none so far have mentioned a battery problem other than the short (expected) recording time. There are plenty of other options, but I personally want it to protect me in the event of a non-fault accident, I therefore want reliability hence I strayed away from the cheap GoPro knockoffs. Similarly I found it hard to justify a £300 top of the range, which this beat in reviews anyway! Each to their own though :)
No mate when it's plugged into the 12v the rechargable battery fails when the ignition is turned off and the camera will not save the last file properly. If you look at the last file for each journey you've made with the cam it's either not there or a damaged file is saved. Not saving the last file properly is fundamental as the last file will be the one in progress when you're in an accident! Pretty shoddy design by nextbase I thought especially as their cameras are not cheap. There's plenty on the net about it if you know to look, I didnt see it. Oh well! lesson learned! Just thought I'd mention it for other people to make an informed decision.
Reading on few forums, it seems like a dodgy run of batteries: Cameras with serial numbers higher than 1525xxx are apparently fitted with a new battery and its protection IC which overcomes the problem. Today NextBase provided me with a new camera, so I have no complaints.
So fingers crossed that the newer 412gw will be sorted? If you see anything to the contrary, I'd appreciate a heads up, but I think I'll keep an eye on it from month10 onward to see if it's showing signs of issue, if so, I'll take it back for refund/replace.
No worries, happy to help, I have just called nextbase technical support who have no recall in place for the cameras but have offered to send me out a new "improved" battery for free with instuctions for fitting it!
That's brill news, although a big tight, you'd think that they'd offer to replace given that they know the battery is faulty? at the very least you'd expect them to offer to fit it for you!! Can you post back with how easy it was to do, the pictures look a bit horrifying with the GPS out etc, it would be good to know for future reference if mine dies :)
Of course mate, I will scan the instructions they send apparently they are the ones they give their tecs to fix the units...!

Thanks for that ;)

Look around for DAS 6 PRO OR PRO Plus versions, they are better value for money than Meguiars.
that costs more than some of the cars I've owned.
