    (twice monthly) so that could account for its longevity?
    I like the sound of that

    Very nice reflection on your roof , don't know if I'll get the same with a silver car!!
    To do: Far too much.....

    Me: 04 E46 320d Sport in Titan Silver

    The Mrs: 59 E92 320d Sport in Space Grey....now replaced by a 61 plate Z4 2.0L S-drive M-Sport in Deep Sea Blue with beige leather

    I'm just a lottery win away from that 335i.........and a Series 3 Discovery..........and an old Mini.........and an E30 325i........

    Heehee.. didnt mean to sound like a willy..

    SRP on a foam pad with a lot of hard work!, nice thin layer and wait for the polish to go clear before stopping the armwork..

    Nice even thin layer of EGP with a microfiber pad.. allow to cure for an hour.. then collinite on top x2 layers... nice thin layers and dont let it stay on for too long before buffing or its hard to get off..

    I couldnt have a silver or white car for the fact i couldnt get reflections like that..

    No worries mate, I often unintentionally sound like a willy too

    My old E30 touring was lachs silver and I used to get a nice reflection in it......loved that colour!! Blue or Space grey for the next Bimmer methinks....

    Yep definitely going to get a product like this. I was going to put my money on that Duragloss stuff, but then I came across DoDo Juice Red Mist Tropical, which sounds like it does same thing.

    You ever used the Red Mist Tropical stuff?

    Not yet.........................................

    If you want a "Try before you buy" with the DG Aquawax drop me a line next time you're up North, I'm only at the other end of the M58 from Liverpool?
