    clean your car

    had a good browse the other night as ive seen loads of people recommend it.

    im thinking of buying some dodo red mist, is it basicly a speed detailer/clay lube?

    but id also like to try some new wax maybe as im using megs atm, would it also be worth trying a dodo sampler?

    my car is sapphire black
    G t c

    soon!

    For Sapphire Black I'd recommend Pete's 53 for your wax. Red Mist is a final spray seal, enhancing the gloss. I use Zaino Z8 which is a similar product, I use it after a big detail or for a show as a final wipe.

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

    Tone,

    I use Pete's 53, my MK5 is also black sapphire. Nothing makes it shine better than that. It quite literally is like a mirror once it has been fully clayed, polished, then waxed.

    Reflection shot from mine at weekend after a wash with Megs Shampoo Plus, and a coat of Pete's 53. The pic was taken 2 days after it was waxed after I had covered around 100 miles:
