Well it helps even if it was a sarcastic one at least it's something. You see without people replying to posts you no longer have a forum you have a dead forum where people join post once then get no reply and never post a again. You then get a hardcore of maybe half a dozen members either arguing with each other or just being silly beggars as noddy-hol has just shown.

Hey that is cheap for a fiver......and at least a hundred pounds worth of damage to your paintwork, so maybe not so cheap?

Ok...a bit hasty ..sorry....I did try a clay bar once but either I wasnt using it right or didnt have the patience...I still prefer the t.f.r with wax/bucket of rain water...the wife does the inside with leather cleaner and fabreeze....the outside give me a 50/50 look...at 50m.p.h at 50 feet it looks smart....

ps ..plus a bit of tyre dressing

You have no idea of how much money I've spent over the years on polishes, waxes, sealants, glazes, shampoos, fallout removers, wheel cleaners...

Trim dressings, tyre dressings, glass polishes, glass cleaners, DA Pads.

I never realised that it would do so much damage to our pride and joy's just by visiting a Auto or Hand Car Wash (may aswell grab some sandpaper and soap and use that) , or DIY and not doing it properly. We spend sometimes many thousands on cars only to ruin the paintwork within no time.

So again we have a thread with loads of views and three or so posting. So i am guessing those viewing are Peugeot owners (or spam bots), most of whom have spent some cash on their cars??? who then casualy look in here only to ignore as Trem has any advice regarding damage to paintwork through poor washing, go figure?
