An excellent car shampoo at a great price! Buying 3 bottles makes it £3.33 a litre which is cheaper per litre than what I can buy from my Autoglym trade rep!

Eh?

Nope,that would be Autoglym WireWool

It says the shampoo adds leaves a water repellent finish,but then says to use super-resin polish afterwards. Won't polish remove the finish seeing as it's an abrasive?

The only reason I am posting it again is that the deal had expired as the price went back up to £8 a bottle, now it's back down to £5 Hope this helps.

This shampoo will not leave a water repellent finish as it has no wax in it. SRP is very mildly abrasive so will remove only very fine scratches and swirls. It also contains a small quantity if wax so water will bead after using it. It would be good practice to seal the paint after using SRP with a good quality wax.

In my experience, BSC does leave a water repellent finish. You're right in that it doesn't contain a proper wax, and nor does the water repellent finish left by BSC compare to that left by Extra Gloss Protection or HD Wax etc. However, it definitely does leave a water repellent coating on the surface of the bodywork. Also as above, You can use SRP after BSC, as not only is it a mildy abrasive polish and contain fillers but it is also more water repellent than BSC.
Hope this helps

Nobody has said '2BM' yet,

Also if you don't have time to dry car after washing this stuff doesn't leave spots. Definitely leaves a water repellant finish. Brilliant buy. Thanks OP.

EGP is very good as is HD wax. Tried the Aqua Wax last weekend and was impressed with that too, will probably use it once a month in between my six monthly proper waxes.

Alternatively you could just buy some Tesco Value washing up liquid for 66p a litre, it'll still get your car clean and it's so weak it won't strip the wax off

The tale has always been that washing up liquid contains salt. Not sure how true this is!

I'm a big fan of EGP and HD Wax too Looking forward to trying their Aqua Wax (or Express Wax which is the trade version), did you apply the Aqua Wax while the car was still wet? How did you get on with it? Also bought their wheel brush which I look forward to trying out hopefully this weekend.

I must admit I was a bit sad - when this offer was on last week I bought 15 bottles for £50 it's THAT good a deal lol

Yes, while the car was still damp I'd call it, not soaking wet, I let the car sit for a few mins after rinsing it down although this would depend a lot on the weather conditions (I believe you can use it on a dry car also). Went on really easy (use the 2 microfibers you get in the box), leave it for 5 mins to solidify and buff off. Came off pretty easily. I used approx 1/3 of a bottle on a Mondeo, probably 2-3 trigger squeezes per panel.

AG Clean Wheels is really good stuff too, I use it neat every six months and diluted 50/50 with water every other wash. Not used their brush yet though. My wheels are a PITA to clean (Mondeo ST220) and I am struggling to find a decent brush myself.

AG stuff is pretty decent, especially when 3 for 2, there are trade equivalents for most of their products which works out a lot cheaper if you have room to store it. don't like their shampoo as in this deal as it doesn't lather enough, although smells nice. I have switched to Megs Gold Class which I'm happy with.

Tried it in the shower last night after work and it was ok although not as good as my regular body wash...dove for men

Darren.

Thanks for the heads up, will pick up 3 bottles tonight on the way home from work and give the car a good, well deserved clean X)

Shampoo is shampoo.

Besides, who uses a bucket and sponge anymore? Just get a pressure washer. A lot faster, a lot cleaner, and less risk of damage to paintwork

try a muc off wheel brush.

will get in all the grooves with ease. works a treat on my rx8 anniversary edition

I thought this stuff was decent. Just bought some dodo juice sour power and born to be mild but will go pick some of this up as its a lot cheaper and I don't particularly see the value in the shampoo stage.

Awesome, we got ourselves a winner!

Pressure washers remove larger particles of dirt but even when using warm water are unable to break down the lipase of grime and dirt hence sit there all day with one but your car will be dirty when you have finished. The best water temperature to clean a car is 35.5 Degrees Celsius I recall from one of the professionals on TV. who cleans cars with waxes that costs 5k a tub.

You are always better going for a shampoo with a good lubricant to reduce swirls ALTHOUGH you are right a pressure washer will help to reduce these larger particles.

This was posted last week.

I have always used turtle wax shampoo or similar but picked up 3 of these a couple of weeks ago when it was first posted...It is a cut above anything I have used before and looks like you have polished the car after drying it and the water repellant has also worked very well this week.

Go and get some

no true, pressure washers can damage paintwork if that paintwork isn't 100%
