Hey all

As we all like testing and share experiences i decided to open a thread with our best products and most disappointing products.
Its nice to name the products and few words why we like them and why they disappointed us.

My top products

Shampoo Prima Mystique
Amazing shampoo great lubricity cleaning abilities and price.

Wolfs Nano Wheel Cleaner
Cleans and protects in one step. Nice results and good value for money

Chemical Guys All Clean APC
Great cleaning abilities and dilution rates. Can be used inside outside even for home usage

Interior, Megs natural shine
True rich matte results, Great smell and some cleaning abilities. It is not water based like poorboys and others so it doesn't leaves finger stains. AMAZING

Chemical Guys Blacklight
Great smell and every time i buff of i can believe the results. Nice smell too

Iron x
Does what others dont.

My most disappointing products

Dodo juice basics of bling shampoo
No cleanign , no lubricity one of the worst shampoos i ve ever have

Valet pro citrus pre wash
It supposed to be wax friendy but it stripped all my protection. HATE IT

Dodo juice yellow clay bar
To soft and useless. It dissolved after a while. WASTE OF MONEY

Brake Duster.
It s not bad but its not Iron X.

Insta finish Rubber Gel
Dust magnet

Chemical Guys Glassworkzs.
Very mild and not effective in hard dirt. The most streaking product for my windscreen

AB Magifoam.
Very hyped product didn't work to me. Stays for ages on surface but not good cleaning abilities



Fell free to share your experiences

The Tardis on eBay could be watered down
It has been proven before
I got mine from there ...It was fine...but not all of it is
I spray and leave for at least 15 minutes
Then wipe..All clean

sorry to hijack the thread

I must admit I have not done the full works yet

I will finally get around to doing it, I just tend to wash and polish. I got a couple of minor marks I want rid off before I do, scratch on drivers door. Egg shaped mark on drivers front wing (seeing someone about getting that fixed later this week) and a few minor chips for a almost 4 year old car.

So do I need to get rid of polish and start again. I seem to recall someone using fairy liquid?

Pre wash hose down followed by two bucket method and Mers or AG car wash
I then clay (might go for one that uses water as lubricant)
Polish (I use AG super resin)
wax (Collinite #915 Marque D'Elegance)
Top up protection (and ideas?)

Wheels
------
Wolf F-1NT Nano wheel cleaner

Tyres
-----
Gtechniq T1 Tyre and Trim

IMO I don't believe there are brands with 100% success in their product range without mean that they aren't good but are better in other brands.
For example I love gtechniq but I found that their W2 apc doesn't work better than chemical guys.
Zaino have great range of sealants but their shampoo is a bit disappointing
Megs have some nice products but their waxes is not something special
I find basic series of dodo poor.

That's why I wanted people to share their experiences for their excellent products and especially the ones have tested against others
