    Just thought i would take advantage of the 3 for 2 Halfords offer and spent £45 on Auto glym products today. I decided to spend my evening detailing the 325 as she has been a bit neglected recently.
    Everything i used was autoglym. Im pleased with the results.
    I even degreased and cleaned the engine bay as it was full of dust..
    Here are the results.....








    Thanks for looking.......

    I wonder if Ronnie will be on later with pictures of his detailed Nova

    Seems this was quite a popular event Today, I wonder how many more will actually post up their pictures though?

    It's the Ultimate DRIVING Machine not the Ultimate ECONOMICAL Machine, get out there and enjoy it

    If you want Economical then buy one of those Toyota Prius things.. Mmmmm don't they look cool

    Very nice mate makes you feel happy dont it

    Autoglym is by far the best ive used everything else seems to leave a streaky mess, and isnt hard to use.

    I did see the Meguires stuff and have used the clay bar kit before and have been impressed. I stuck with the autoglym stuff as ive used it for years, Just old habits I think.

    Im not worried about the economy, its worth the sacrifice for the noise it makes....

    tbh the meguiars stuff knocks autoglym into a cocked hat (whatever that means lol)
    you dont get anywhere near the dust that autoglym makes
    having said that the turtlewax platinum stuff is meant to be good.

    anyhoo the car looks mint steve
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
