    Ok, weather permitting this weekend I'm hoping to have a good go at cleaning both my girlfriend's MX5 and my 320D and want to try clay. Is it ok to use clay on plastic surfaces such as light lenses as well as the paintwork?

    I ran out of the mister when doing mine so I mixed diluted some shampoo and used that to carry on. Did the trick.

    Thanks to the person who suggest it btw! Neat trick!

    Clay can be used generally on any smooth surface ie.. glass, paintwork, trim. Would avoid textured trim though.
