    depends on the person, but if u put lets say GSI onto ur car (which is actually a 1.4 16v) then ur falsely advertising ur car to a potential thief, which could increase insurance premiums

    Nah just rub lightly with the cloth or whatever and wipe over with a damp cloth/rinse off quickly afterwards. I've done it on 3 different cars and has never done anything to the paint

    A small amount of methylated spirit on a cloth should do it. Make sure you polish it up and wax after though as the meths will take any protection on the car off.

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