    How long does the plastic treatment last?

    What wax by the way? Pete's 53 on mine did 3 months, 6000+ miles and probably about 10 washes before it started to look like a re-coat was needed. A good wax does really help make those washes easier

    Top work Chris. Having a good wax on there makes washing easier. Particularly if you find it to be a bit of a chore.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
