Every time I clean mine, the next day a lorry coming in the other direction will shower it with mud... Infamy, they've got it in for me...

I’m hoping a glass coating will help the muck not stick do heavy rain or a pressure washer will remove it

The detailer has completed my car (now four days old). It has had much done to it in the last 7 hours, whilst it sat, bathed in sunshine on my drive (mobile detailer). The whole process Interior, exterior, wheels, Rain-X, snowfoam, clay clean and Lifeshine cost me £195, etc. etc. which, compared favourably to the dealership's quote of £340 for the same treatment.
I am very pleased with the end result, but when the photo session started the sun left my drive for other areas, leaving the car in the shade of my home, so the shots are a bit dark, for which I apologise profusely.

Car looks great, I hope the lifeshine is doing it’s job, thanks for this post, I didn’t know about Alloygators, deffo going to fit those to mine when it arrives. My last two cars have had lifeshine treatment, I got the dealer to throw it in to sweeten the deal, but I totally forgot about it this time round, so may go your route and have a mobile guy do it if I can find one locally

Hi

So with the lockdown getting all the choirs done and car washing one of them that kills time. Got a Karcher Power washer and tried it last week with Karcher shampoo but now out of stock. I am no cleaning / car expert as would go to local business to get this done

Now looking to try it during this time but there are so many products out there and so many You Tube videos etc. I dont want to spend a small fortune so just want are the main products I should get ? Dont want all bell and whistles as car is used daily and builds up bird crap and muc regularly . Something to get it looking good for the weekend..........when per Murphys law it will probably rain :-(

Read this thread and also going on Halfords website but its trying to decide whats the best

All suggestions welcome as what else is there to do in these Crazy times

I have tended to go for Autoglym products and Halfords often has 20% off. I have never been disappointed with their car shampoo if that’s all you are after.
