Looks the same as my silverline one, but I think mines only 110w.

Either way, if you wanna make polishing and waxing your car much easier than by hand, get one.

The wax lasts much longer on my car when applied and buffed with this too.

No not a psychic shopper just someone who is aware that a decent polisher will normally set you back £100+

But ok who bought one of these tell me I'm wrong?

Bought one yesterday and works a treat

Wrong then

I have one, it's excellent, you're wrong.

Ouch...

Worth a punt at that price

Depends if you think your car deserves more than an £15 aldi, asda-looking floor cleaner that might damage your paintwork.

can i use this for washing up?

This may give your car swirls. I wouldn't put that on my 30k BMW.

You need an oscillating buffer to stop paint swirls. Info here: youtube.com/wat…X3I

I had one and gave it away. They are this cheap elsewhere and IMO they aren't very good. I found it hard to get on with, it left a lot of swirls and I could do a better job by hand. I did however invest in a proper rotary polisher and different heads and grades of polish, wax etc. I invested about £300 in the gear and while it takes at least a day to do a good job with it, the results are amazing. I know that's a heck of a lot more £ than this machine but there is no comparision and unless you are prepared to invest time and money with the proper gear I would recommend doing it by hand still. Autoglym super resin polish (which is commonly used by professional detailers) followed by a nice wax will leave a lovely result. Invest your money there instead.

cheers, should get one for polishing up wifey (_;)

Maybe I was wrong perhaps this £15 polisher is the best ever seen. Who knows all I know is I'm not going to be using that even on my hard paint. Think I'm going to save for a decent DA probably this beaut:

thats why he can afford a 30k beamer, by the way this forum is all about saving money, you may not have known (_;)

He didn't say he paid £30k for it. I've got a £45k BMW (that I paid £12.5k for as it was 7 years old)

I personally would not use one of these on my car. I wen't for this one: http://www.nonpaintstore.com/en/hamach/hamach-poetsmachine-rh-50-e?pk_campaign=google-ps-en&pk_kwd=Hamach

Though, not at that price. As others have said, either save the money do it buy hand, or spend more & get something decent. You should probably be spending £15 on hoods never mind the whole thing.

Seems a good price for an average 32" TV which would be good for bedroom or something. Never used this company before so can't comment and i think some TV's are graded. Either way just thought i would post as may be of interest to someone.



When did i say i ever bought that TV? I posted the deal after i got my 42" TV from Next and i noticed it on the webby. I did mention that in the offer i posted that you linked to.



Actually the car stands me at 33k and is 2 years old and since the remap runs faster than ever. That doesn't mean i don't like a deal either.

Thanks.

I tried one of these years ago and took it back.

Really poor. The lightest of pressure on this and it slows to a standstill.

You need a proper dual action oscillating polisher as pointed out.

Or a simpler machine polisher if you are really confident in your ability

With some of these car polishers they leave like a swirly pattern, so instead use good old elbow grease do it properly

Spot on mate, you just can't skimp on this type of thing if you value your car, especially when it requires a certain level of skill to do a decent job.

I'm not dissing the poster with his offer but some things you just can't skimp on and you can end up making a swirl of a mess that you will need to end up paying to get sorted out professionally.

i dont post often but had to this time.

Had this same polisher from Aldi for quite a few years still going strong. it makes a quicker and better job than doing it by hand IMHO. Perfect for your average car cleaner. dont be put off by the OCD car detailers posting on here :p, i will be cracking mine out when i have time and the weathers right.

if you've got the £100+ to spend on a polisher what you looking on here for?!?!?!?

The best way of saving money in the long run is to not invest badly and I'm sorry but this is a bad investment. They will damage your paintwork unless you are really skillful!

Depends on whether you know how to use one properly.

You have to remember that people with money are rebound for being as tight as a fleas chaff.

As regarding leaving swirls this is more down to the skill of the operator than the quality of the polisher unless your paintwork is that rough you cant make it worse I would suggest getting hold of a couple of old panels to hone your skills on first

This might be alright but after buying a Dremel-style multi-tool from Aldi and have it practically explode in my hand, I wouldn't touch another Aldi product that requires it to be plugged in to the mains!!!
