Not a 'steal' or 'bargain' from where I'm sitting.
All Autoglym Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2018
Menzerna. Anything that isn't SRP and has some sort of abrasion to the clear coat.
G3 hides them
Either really. Not deep though. Sorry for the thread hijack. Heat given :)
Do you want to remove them or hide them?
Anyone know if you can apply for the cycle to work scheme with Evans eBay?
I can't see how meguiars is discounted :/
Same prices as they were prior to this (so called) OFFER. Is £7.60, SAVE £3.40, Was £11....... Well it was and always has been £7.60 - Great offer (not). Voted cold.
Yeh Autoglym good products.
Autoglym used to be on offer 3 for 2 pretty often. Good off the shelf stuff I have always found.
Heat added. Some stores currently with stock for collection..... Barnstaple Caerphilly Bognor Regis Oxford Road Farnborough Rustington Ruislip Harrow Newhaven Balham ......good luck (y)
Just pay someone else to do it. That’s what I do. Most good car valet places will wax your entire car for around £15 extra
This is seriously good product but it's the hardest one to work with. It's right next to the pain in the ass. I still have 3/4 left somewhere in the garage as can't be bothered to use it again. Working with this stuff is like going to the gym for a first time and using all gear on the hardest settings.
Just picked one up in wimbledon, thanks!
This stuff is great. I paid about £50 for a tub when I bought my new car two years ago - still have half a tub left
If you want 2 of these for £12.50 each from B&Q join the B&Q club they will email you £5 off when you spend £30 - making 2 sets £25. I did this. The aqua wax alone is over £12.50. I use this every wash. The shampoo is a bonus. The 2x microfibre cloths in the bundle are also good quality.
I show my cars and this never leaves any streaks if applied correctly to wet paint. Easily buffs off also. It’s not my go to product for LSP by any means, but does the job through winter and for topping up. Prefer Supernatural Hybrid and Fifth Element as my mains LSP’s.
Dodo juice do everything. I use their shampoo and quick detailer but agree the wax is best (y)
Crap stuff leave major streaking. Dodo juice for my car. We show our cars and not one person uses auto glim due to this. Sorry but wouldn't pay a Penny for this stuff
Got this in the £1 subscription deal, it's an ok bit of kit but not worth 15 in my opinion
Could be someone reserved one and failed to collect it,as i think Halfords allow a few days for collection of an online reservation.
The HD wax is back in stock in my local Halfords in Keighley. Most surprised about that.
Just finished trying out the new Ultra HD wax and it is definitely better to apply as it is a softer wax. One thing I did notice was that the new wax is being advertised on Halfords website as being 150g which is the same amount as the old product,yet it Isn’t 150g,it is only 120g. Anyway here are a few photos taken after waxing,bit hard to see the results as the light isn’t the best.
That is true about the prep work,that’s why I have just spent the last few hours washing and claying the car in preparation for polishing and finally waxing
No. Spend the extra £30 on polishing. The wax is only as good as the paint prep.
Halfords too. Have a look at my past deals, it was £18 for body set only but was given the body and wheels version instead as they didn't have any of the ones I had ordered (angel)
Showing as £89 now :(
This is actually a good deal. People voting cold are just uninformed.
a) much needed exercise b) satisfaction AND MOST IMPORTANTLY... c) the traffic film remover that car washes use (the spray they put on at the start) strips your car of all protection and works away at your paintwork over time EDIT And you get more than 3.65 cleans out of this kit .
But you haven't found your CapsLock! (lol)
Screenwash? am i the only one getting my wife to both defrost and wash my windscreen, waste of money if you've already shelled out for a wedding imo :p
iT SEEMS, THE QUEST IS AT AN END, FOR i HAVE FOUND THE ULTIMATE SCREENWASHES!
Bought today, cheers.
If it freezes and you try to use the washers the water pipes/hoses can pop off the nozzles and the joints along the car running to the rear washer.....can be a pain to fix on certain models....water can pump directly into the boot lock mechanism which in turn corrodes and fails or can damage the electric actuator on the lock, I've fixed a few.
I signed up in April and didn't even get a magazine (annoyed)
signed up towards the end, didnt receive any email nor gift..
Anybody received two freebies? Today I received another Autoglym kit :o
I emailed them my subscription details and asked them to cancel it, which they did (I had already cancelled DD for good measure). Email address is on an earlier post. Just waiting for weather to improve so I can wash my car
They had the wheels and body kit £24 (passed and got the siminoz kit for £12) and the high def gloss that’s usually £47 for £25 (gave in to temptation on this) yesterday
Picked it up today, was given the body and wheels kit for this price. Hmmm
SRP isn't a polish in the traditional sense - it's a polyamide filler. It's barely abrasive and fills fine swirl marks. Over time, it washes out and swirls return. A polish with some cut will look to correct scratches in the clear coat, but by hand, this is very, very time consuming. Either way, there is little point polishing or using SRP without using a clay bar/glove first, else you can often make paintwork look worse by rubbing in surface contaminants.
Give it a Polish polish.
I've had my car 18 months and not washed it yet.
Acidic wheel cleaner has its place. If you can't remove baked on brake dust with a non-acidic, fallout remover or clay then i'd use acidic and let it dwell. I've even had to resort to brick acid on wheels at times if i'm dealing with a car where the wheels haven't been cleaned properly for years or more. Not a massive fan of AutoGlym, its a step up from anything you'd buy in Asda or the like though. Value for money wise I'd recommend stuff from these guys https://www.ezcarcare.co.uk
I use Autosmart Red 7 or autosmart fallout remover for baked on stuff and stains may take a couple of hits but does the job. But as mentioned Bilt hamber is a good one although ive not used it but always heard good reviews
I’ve just checked it out on the link “austinc” posted for bilt hamber and it stated it’s ph 5, acidic
Is this the britemax product you folks are referring to? If not, could you share a link to it please. http://www.slimsdetailing.co.uk/britemax-iron-max.html#product_tabs_description
Yes you’re right, when I said I’d caused damage to my alloys in my earlier post it was wonder wheels I was naively using over a period of time, I think it’s ok to shift a really stubborn stain or as a one off for totally pitted alloys but would never recommend it for any regular use. Will try that Bilt Hamber you mentioned.
This stuff is amazingly good . The bottle may appear small but 500ml makes up to 8 litres of screenwash (Maximum dilution). Last few days its been below -8c overnight and at 06:00 in the morning the screenwash jets in my car have not frozen over. I always buy a few when the 3 for 2 offer is on for AutoGlym products. (nerd) Full info here:- https://www.autoglym.com/ultimate-screenwash
What makes this so expensive?
That's true but people not aware of it.
During summer one bottle per 5litre, during winter i double that and never had a problem.
This stuff is ok. I wouldn't buy it again for winter but diluted in the summer is better than most of the other stuff.
Think you got another black friday deal than this. They have 2x bf deals running, one is this and the other one is £25 which has less products in it.
Managed to click and collect these on Black Friday for £25 somehow got two (y)
This is a nice little package, it's a good price as individually this little lot would cost a lot. I grabbed one for my new BMW :)
Guys this is still a good price to pay . Cheapest around so far comparing to amazon and ebay 55 pounds :-)
And it’s only 6 products vs. 9 on this one (and didn’t mention the cloth, sponge, and the other cloth) plus the bag. So yeah, the Halfords deal is a steal NOT... (flirt)
Me too. Although I have 100% left!
I’ve still got one of these going to get another at this price, very good set & defiantly a steal for 25
I remember getting these at 3 for £20 in this deal https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/halfords-autoglym-perfect-bodywork-collection-reduced-to-15-and-3for2-so-10-each-1923910 Still have 2.7 bottles of everything left, 3 years later (lol)
The 3 pack sets can be had from my vw dealer in Grimsby for £10. this is not a bad price for the 6 pack.
Thanks, Ordered as I was getting Low
Code no longer works.
Thanks, picked up the Autoglym kit. Just starting to get into detailing my new car and this kit seems to have a good range of products to begin with.
What a time to be alive!
Thank you my son loves the Meguiars Mirror Bright and its his b-day on sunday
I've always used Autoglym products they're excellent. I use the interior shampoo (plastic bottle with green label) which does a great job. Never used this though so good luck ;)
£14.50 currently at Halfords!
Guildford has about 4 left in store
You wear microfibre clothing? Taking a bit far maybe!
Was showing oos for me too, went to my local on the off chance there might be an odd one left, they had 12 in stock. oO
Halfords price match btw!
