  1. Happy Christmas from us to you!

    A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the whole VWROC family. Have a great one!
  2. Disappointing Dynaudio?

    And so it came to pass! Give over Col.......look what you’ve done now, pass the tissues......😭 😂
  3. Disappointing Dynaudio?

    Unusually for a man Col, you are right. 😝
  4. Disappointing Dynaudio?

    Google “running in speakers” or “breaking in speakers” Same applies to new headphones which require a period of ‘burning in’.
  5. Star Wars The Last Jedi

    Going to see it on Sat. So don’t spoil it for me. 😜
  6. Disappointing Dynaudio?

    Remember, you need to give it time for the speakers to ‘run in’, at least 40 hours, then it starts to develop into a richer deeper sound.
  7. Engine / dsg updates or recalls

    When mine went in for its first service I was advised there was an update. They raised it before I had chance to ask, which I do as a matter of course. At collection, the update was detailed on a specific sheet and signed off.
  8. What strange things do you keep in your car?

    Are you a Swissvax Incident Liaison Officer? Yes. I’m a Swissvax ILO. I step in Swissvax emergencies! It’s not a paid job, a voluntary role - the on-call hours are crap, out in all weathers at a moments’ notice, dealing with traumatised detailers, often with only a headtorch and the glow of a hi-viz jacket for light. It’s a greasy job but someine has to do it! 😁
  9. Which Snow Foam & Lance for Karcher 620

    That’s not a proper snow foam lance, get yourself a proper one. They can be had cheaper than the ones I posted if you don’t want to spend that much. Lots on eBay for around £20, like this one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Heavy-Duty-Karcher-K-Series-Pressure-Washer-Snow-Foam-Lance-With-1L-Bottle/262804665813?hash=item3d3060f5d5:g:5gYAAOSw5cNYd2tG Some around even cheaper. Make sure you select the Karcher fitting. I find Bilberry has its place, others don’t. Best thing to do is just use snow foam or citrus pre wash on whole car, incl wheels, then your bucket wash and see how your wheels come up. Then if you feel something extra is needed maybe get the Bilberry. Much might depend on your wheel sealant/wax.
  10. What strange things do you keep in your car?

    Depends what you consider to be strange. Most is kept in boot with a few bits in cabin. Usually: Work gear: A measuring wheel, a mallet, cable ties, scissors, twine, and wire, staple gun/staples, wooden stakes, rigger boots, wellies, wellie socks, waterproof gear, hi-viz gear, an emergency responder backpack filled with all manner of required gear. Personal: Mobile detailing kit, 1L of oil, tyre inflator and digital tyre pressure gauge, screwdriver, bottled water, hat, gloves, scarf, old microfibre towel to protect boot lip when moving stuff in/out of boot. Some stuff is tucked away under the boot floor. Not the full kit but some of it. Can an get a bit messy!
  11. Which Snow Foam & Lance for Karcher 620

    Pop up the link to the Halfords one. Yes snow foam sprayed onto dry car, dwell and jet wash off, then citrus pre wash sprayed on via lance, dwell, jet wash rinse off, then bucket wash. Recently discussed in more detail here. Which explains the strengths of each product. If i were you, I’d start with just the one pre cleaner, to keep it streamlined and less time consuming.
  12. Tornado Red detailing, products and advice?

    As you mention, if using colour charged waxes, sealants glazes, then those geared towards darker paints are more suitable for red cars than those aimed at lighter cars. For instance, if you are a wax user DoDo Juice Orange Crush is a nice option for red. Sample pot http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=608 Full size http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wax/dodo-juice/dodo-juice-orange-crush/prod_397.html If you wish to use a glaze, far better to use Poorboys Black Hole on a red car than White Diamond http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/glazes/poorboys-black-hole/prod_494.html. Bilberry Wheel Cleaner or WoWo Wheel Cleaner are both excellent. http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=499 https://wo-wo.co.uk/collections/wo-wo-car-detailing-products/products/wo-wo-wheel-cleaner.

  13. Which Snow Foam & Lance for Karcher 620

    Best snow foams ime are, ValetPro Advanced Neutral snow foam. 5L http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washing-and-drying/foam-pre-wash/valet-pro-advanced-neutral-snow-foam/prod_1087.html 1L http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washing-and-drying/foam-pre-wash/valet-pro-advanced-neutral-snow-foam-1ltr-/prod_1095.html and Bilt Hamber Auto Foam. http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=1165 I’ve tried a few other snow foams and imo they are not all as efficient as each other, up I can highly recommend the two above. All snow foams will diminish wax over time, but if used at a maintenance dilution of around 1:8 or 1:9 they won’t adversely strip wax or other protection. The other pre wash that I can sing praises high enough of is ValetPro Cirtus Pre Wash which is extremely effective used at same ratios as above. I use both, first snow foam then citrus pre wash, but either are good pre wash options on their own. Ime, you get great results out of both using them with a decent snow foam lance http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washing-and-drying/foam-pre-wash/snow-foam-lance-various-fittings/prod_371.html https://www.autobritedirect.co.uk/index.php/exterior-cleaning/autobrite-direct-snow-foam-lance/autobrite-heavy-duty-foam-lance-various-connectors.html
