  1. I know it's been mentioned but I really really hate the rear bumper shelf and the way it collects all the dirt. The rest of the car can have a small amount of dust and dirt but the rear is just caked in filth!
  2. You want some specific tar and glue remover. Most brands will have something, I've used Gyeon Tar which seems to work quite well. Loads of Tar removers on this link- https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/exterior/paint-contamination/bug-tar-glue
  3. I'd go with a dark bronze... Think it would look good on Lapiz... I keep thinking about getting mine done bronze at some point on my Atlantic Blue
  4. I'd be interested in how you get on with this! I keep thinking about getting something to dry the car with no contact but didn't really want to pay the price for the car specific dryers! Neighbors would think I'm a right plonker but they probably do anyway with the time I spend cleaning it as it is.
  5. Thanks! Certainly don't regret my choice of colour, as you say looks great when clean and glossy. Will definitely do it in sections next time to make it easier. Luckily used some carpro Ech2o diluted down to a quick detailer and that seemed to get rid of a couple of rouge water spots left!
  6. Gave the car a much needed clean today, tried out Bilt Hamber Auto Foam and was impressed with it. Seemed to get rid of pretty much all the dirt leaving almost nothing left for the contact wash... Gave the wheels a proper clean and a top up of C2V3. Drying has always been the hardest bit of the wash for me so I decided to try sheeting the water off as I'd never done it before and I'm converted it's takes so much of the water off its ridiculous! Need to get used to it and maybe sheet half the car at a time as some of the beads left were starting to dry by the time I got to them. Results are below
  7. That looks great, love the wheels! What are they? Are they bronze?
  8. Bilt Hamber Auto Foam, Gyeon Iron, Gyeon Smoothie wash mitt all arrived yesterday. Fingers crossed the weekend has some half decent weather so I can try out the Auto Foam and Smoothie!
  9. Thanks! Took the plunge and ordered some today along with a couple of other goodies too. Will hopefully try out at the weekend, I also have some ValerPro Advance PH Neutral so will have to compare the two. Haven't used too many different snow foams so feel like I need to experiment and see which I like best!
  10. That video is why I'm asking the question haha it seemed to perform so much better than the others when it came to cleaning strength. My only concern is what PH level it is and if the coating can resist it. Might have to give it a go though.
  11. Has anyone used Bilt Hamber Auto Foam on a coated car? Heard good things about it but not sure if it's safe for coated cars.
  12. I've coated mine and they do seem a lot easier to keep clean. The brake dust and dirt doesn't stick to them as much so doesn't take as much effort to get off.
  13. There might be no outcome but the event has still happened. It's the actual speeding that makes a driver a worse risk in the eyes of the insurer not the points on the license. The points and code just show the event and the severity. The accident example is slightly different because the event hasn't happened yet. In this case the OP has already done the excessive speeding it's just the punishment that is yet to be decided. Insurance works on the basis of utmost good faith meaning both sides must act in good faith and declare all material facts. For me the NIP for excessive speeding is a material fact, better to declare it and let insurers decide when to act on it.
  14. Personally I'd err on the side of caution and ring them up to speak about it. If they tell you that you don't need to declare anything until the outcome is finalised then great. If they do need to know and you don't tell them you are in a world of pain if something does happen. Better to have them tell you you didn't need to inform them than have them telling you during a claim that you should have told them and therefore they won't pay the claim.
  15. Nice goodie box there! I use the Gtechniq glass cleaner and their C2V3...Both are great so far!
