    I done a quick bit of research on the glare site and a few others too.
    in my opinion i think these products work best like if you a buy a brand new car.like the old supaguard ploy lol.

    £250+ for the kit and before you pick up your shiny brand new car they give it the full works with it.
    Yet the dealers buy the kits for £30 or so
    Hmm suspect

    As if they dont make enough money out of the brandnew car they just sold you

    Anyway here some sites i looked up.plenty to choose from..

    the charge is more for the labour involved not the kit itself..most of them require quite a few hours to apply properly. times that by your dealers hourly rate and hey presto....expensive polish.
    better off buying the kits from fleabay and. d.i.m

    Forget all of the above and go for permagard. Unlike all of the above it's not done by general people - only permagard and their qualified and trained franchisees do the work, plus you have the reasurance that it's not just a product developed for the auto market with difficult to prove 'facts'.

    PG was developed in the aerospace and maritime industries to coat boat hulls and aeroplane fuselages.... Virgin airlines swear by the stuff (the red on their planes suffers fade) - pg cured the issue over 100,000's miles. With the added benefit that it reduced fuel costs by a huge chunk - 10K iirc off their annual budget, due to streamlining as dirt, dust etc can't stick to it.

    My personal and proffesional opinion of a product such as lifeshine etc is a waste of money and time. Your better off having it detailed then maintaining it with a good polish and wax every month - 2month then your protection, shine and water beeding will be fine.
