The Collinite is a good wax/sealant , a favourite of mine is Dodo Juice supernatural hybrid which gives amazing results and lasts a good few months too . Another choice would be Finishkare Fk1000p paste sealant which is outstanding value and gives good long term protection . Combine either of these with some Sonax brilliant shine detail spray and you will have an unbeatable combination for the money . All available here http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/

Used Autoglym for years but then tried a Meguiars claybar followed by Meguiars Gold Class wax and never looked back.

Ok, ok, I'm back in the zone on my PC, with my 5 foot keyboard and psychedelic lighting now :-D

Going back to the clay bar - never ever used one until last year - as usually my thinking was - why I am paying a fortune to shove this stuff on my nice shiny paintwork - when I'm usually trying to get mud off? Anyway, I am a convert now. If anyone's ever used the usual tar remover stuff - what a nightmare that is - I only ever used it once and was gutted in the sunlight to see 'swirly' lighter patches where I had used it :twisted: Dumped this immediately and went into panic mode to polish out the light patches. I'll NEVER use that stuff again (Carplan Tar Remover I think it was).

The clay is just so easy to use and I could see it gradually turning a darker colour as more and more tar came off. Left a fantastic smooth finish ready for polishing. That was a Meg's kit too that came with the said clay bar, detailing spreay and a number of cloths applicators and polish. Brilliant stuff and my car is due for another treatment anytime now!

Moved around with my father who was Military - so schooled in Germany. Rinteln smack between Hanover and Bielefeld - Detmold not far from there. :-D
