    Same as above. I bought this about a week ago and makes a lot of difference. I also warmed the clay up first in a little bit of warm water which i found help mold it into shape because it was so damn cold outside.

    cheers guys so when the clay gets overly dirty, can you wash it or is it game over and on to a new piece?

    Read this thread, it will help a lot:

    1998 E36 328 clay??

    In this thread I have quoted:

    ''Well...wash your car and once its all dry and clean, run your finger down your bodywork.

    Does it feel like glass or sand paper?

    If it feels like sandpaper, you car needs to be clayed!!

    Clay is a plastacene-like ball that you flat out in the palm of your hand and lube it up with some detaling spray. Once the clay is flat and lubed up, spray the body work with detailing spray too. Once you are sure the bodywork and the clay is well lubed up, rub the bodywork with this clay in an up and down motion or left and right motion with moderate pressure. Keep doing it till the clay slips around on the bodywork and requires no effort to move around on the car. When it slides around on its own, that means the bodywork is done. Work panel by panel to ensure you cover everything and the bodywork dont dry up (in this weather it wont dry up anyway!). Make sure you check the clay for contaminents (black bits in the clay thats been picked up of the bodywork). If the clay goes black, roll the clay into a ball and break it up and reshape it to get a clean surface again. NEVER DROP THE CLAY ON THE FLOOR! If you do, replace it as you may scratch your paintwork with the debris off the floor.

    Clay cleans of contaminents on your bodywork that normal polishing, washing and waxing cannot take off. It makes the bodywork as smooth as glass!!

    Trust me claying is one of the most satisfying things I do to my car as the results are unbelievable!!

    Hope this helps!''

    Fold it over once dirty then i should reveal another 2 clean sides then keep repeating it until you cant get anymore clean sides but dont throw it away as you can use it on your wheels and glass!!!

    Done mine at the weekend, and boy did it need it, only owned the car a week and thought it was in good condition, but the clay bar proved different. The meguiar kit is an absolute dream, only thing ive noticed with owning an arctic silver is it never looks really shiny.
    Not a problem as long as its clean !
