Hi folks just thought i should let people know that as my car is new to me i gave it a good clean on Sunday and used a product from BMW. The polish was ordered from EBay and came in a kit at the cost of £10. Its called Hard wax polish and is very very good. The polish is a liquid but very thin, IE as thin as water! So it goes on very easy, it dries in seconds and just goes dull. With a clean cloth the polish shines with no effort and my car looks like a glass finish. The pack was called a BMW clean and protect pack, and I believe that the Mini one advertised as well is exactly the same, anyhow its well worth the money!! Go shine and protect people!!!
