My Antara has been treated with GuardX by the dealer. Anyone any experience of this stuff?

I have a kit to replenish periodically.

I use supaguard and lifeshine . Both are great. Both are cheap No more than 50 for the kit, The cost is in the labour . However it does work .

It works best with solid colours . Blacks ,whites ,reds , yellows. Basically Non metalics. You will still get contaminants but are generally easier to remove. My last car , a black bmw 3 serries was so good after 7 years that the buyer asked if it hd been resprayed. I wouldn't pay 500 for it but if you buy the kit and do it yourself it is worth it

Diamond brite in white! Love the stuff!

Clean my mother in laws without it and it looks no where near as good as mine! Both done on the same day with same products!

Mine was applied by the dealer & I got the aftercare kit. It didn't cost me anything as I bartered for mats, flaps & paint protection to be thrown in after I'd screwed the price down as far as I could.

The glass treatment is fantastic, beads water like a ducks back. I used a similar product years ago called rain-x, we used to use it on our visors when riding motorcycles- when it rained all you had to do is turn your head to the side & all the water disappeared!!

Banned for being an ignorant ****..

All of the above are pretty much the same and a bit of a rip off by the dealer. Im not keen on them if you want to keep your paintwork perfect have a look at detailing your car and doing it properly yourself.

Claying, polishes and waxes are the way to go. Do it twice a year and you wont have any problems. Its so easy to wash and keep clean. Even dead bugs are easy to clean off. You know that paintwork is protected by waxes and polish and not some imaginary hock-us pock us.

Totally agree with Grumps on this one - regularly use snow foam and autoglym shampoo, fast glass, tyre dressing and plastic/rubber dressing. Then a couple of times a year clay and resin polish.

What does everyone use on ther rear bumper? I have a few white scuff marks from stones etc and a small one from a supermarket trolley, infact Iam a little disappointed at the quality finish of the bumper. I dont have much nails on my fingers but without much effort I managed to scrape a discrete part of the bumper with my pinky nail and it scraped it to show white. The paint finish on it cannot be that thick. I clean it with a silicone based cleaner to keep the shine but need something to get the white scuffs back to black. Any ideas guys??
