    Dealers try and sell it saying its better than anything else but its not. It doesnt last as long as they say it does. Carnanuba wax is much better.

    Load of sales bullshit. As said, a decent detail would be better.

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

    Pretty much the same as pure guard which costs about £20 for 5ltrs and they will probably use about half a ltr doing a car.......

    Is this the stuff they sell you as an extra when you buy a new car? All this about no need to polish etc for 3 years or whatever they claim?

    A friend has just recently bought a brand new Kia Cee'd, and they have paid extra for this stuff which they were told it shouldn't need polishing or what ever for years. Turned round and told friend it was all a load of b******s and that if you believed it, you would believe anything!

    Just said, do a full detail, then wash and wax on a regular basis and it should be fine!

    Its all hype guys.

    From a main dealers point of view, they are in it for the sell and any of the usual protection systems is only as good as how you take care of it.

    Supaguard, diamondbrite, autoglym lifeshine, autosmart silver seal etc are all a touch gimicky and weigh overpriced.

    Auotglym lifeshine for instance is the same product as extra gloss protection that you can get from halfords for around £7 + you get more from halfords.
    This with the bag od goodies you get would set you back abot £50 instead of £350 - £400.

    Personally you could do it yourself for reasonable money and with better products or get a pro in to do the work for you.
    Either way it will cost around the same but the car will be prepared correctly rather than bodged and you left with an unprotected mess.
