    How does people de ice windscreens without scraping or using de-icer. I remember hearing that de-icer is bad to get on paintwork and will eat away protective coatings like ceramic glaze and rainx

    Detailing Kit?

    Just bought an Inferno Orange 182 and it's pitted already. I need a full detailing kit as I have nothing except some microfiber towels. What would you recommend? I guess anything will do the job well enough but may as well get what is recommended & tested.
