Car was washed at the weekend using a rare product called the generous brother-in-law :D I've no idea what he used to clean it but it briefly looked good although was back to being muddy again after less than 24 hrs :(

Dubster just gets dirty from going along the Dual Carrigeways, that an Seagulls in Ayr like to use Dubster for Target practise.

Gave him a quick jet wash the other day 8mins for £2

Wouldn't use one of these usually but the rep-mobile does need to be cleaned more regularly so hey ho.

On my punto, I've used:

Meguiars:
NXT detailer - Avoid, utter crap
Trim and dash restorer - actually quite good
Liquid Gold Shampoo - No complaints
Liquid Caranuba Wax - Good but a cnut to buff
Hot Rims (The tyre stuff) - Very good

Neilsen
Super 'A' Sheen - Not that good
APC - Quite an inferior product

Autoglym
Interior shampoo
Bodywork shampoo conditioner
Super Resin Polish
High Definition Wax
Rubber and Vinyl cleaner
Fast Glass
Bumper and trim gel
Might have forgot some others

Turtle Wax
Tyre gel (The "nano tech" stuff)

RainX

I've also used Meguiars clay bar, Turtle wax polish and a couple of other cheaper products on my other cars.
