    Mark going off at a tangent, have you any experience of Poorboys White Diamond (similar to Black Hole, but for light cars)?

    I was thinking of trying some lime prime (as I've never used a cleanser on my car to date), folled by a glaze and some wax. Am I right in thinking that you need to leave stuff like Natty's a fair while before coats? If so is it OK to wash the car before the second coat, or just rinse with the hose.

    Cheers for you help.

    not used white diamond, but blackhole is exellent, all i would do is use lime prime light followed by wd or bh then wax,an hour between wax coats should be enough, followed by another when you wash it next, and maybe a coat of redmist or z8 as a wax booster occasionally!

    Cool cheers mate - looks like a visit to Performance Motorcare is in order then!

    So far the Natty's wax has lasted well and the colour still looks strong and the water beads off really well, whereas the cheaper waxes that I have used before would be fading in their effectiveness by now.

    Looks really good mate.

    I applied two coats of Natty's on Sunday and am pretty pleased with the results (will be getting some lime prime lite, diamond white and 476 soon in prep for the winter, once our holiday is out of the way at the end of the month).

    A couple of pics following me efforts...

    Ive tried a fair few of the Dodo Juice range and ive never been totally impressed. There is no doubt its good stuff though. After trying out a whole load of products i found Ioncoat Naviwax to be the best.



    Not on a BMW (didnt have one at the time) but it shows the level of shine.
