    Hi Everyone,

    Got a few bits I want to do with the E36 but first off the hood is dirty and looks weathered, also has a bit of green algae all over.

    Does anyone know which product is best to use to clean it?

    I have seen something on ebay which cleans, replenishes and protects the hood for £35 - has anyone got and tips of what to buy?

    Many Thanks !

    Matt

    I have used the turtle wax hood cleaner, its a 2 bottle pack, 1 cleaner & 1 protector, not bad for the money but next time I will use something like Autoglym.

    Yeah thats what I was referring to on ebay - seems like a good choice then!

    Whats the difference with Autoglym from Halfords out of interest?

    Cheers!
