This is very very good. The applicator is brilliant.

Very easy to apply and so far it's lasted very well.

The dressing itself is the 'milky' type that I've had in sample bottles before.
Might grab some of the same actually. Sold me.
This stuff is pretty awesome. I know the weather has been dry so the durability hasn't really been tested but the look they give the tyres is bloody awesome. Just makes them look naturally black without looking overly shiny.

Perfect.
Ordered some. I've been using AF Satin for the tyres for a while, but it either looks too glossy if applied in any quantity or doesn't lass if used sparingly.
Hopefully this stuff is decent!

Looks wise it's quality. I did my car 2 weeks ago and it still looks brilliant. Like I say I can't really say how good it is durability wise because the weather has been pretty good for 2 weeks. But I'm not sure there's many products that will withstand inclement weather that well.

More zaino z8 ordered
Gives any finish that extra something
My favourite ever product.

Nice. Looking forward to trying it out

I need some more tyre stuff so may give that a try. I've always used Megs Endurance Tyre stuff and it looks good but most of it ends up all over the arch and doesn't last very long IMO.

Despite giving my Recaros a really good scrub with Carpro Inside they do still have a bit of a feint whiff of dog.

I saw this stuff on the CarPro Facebook page today https://carpro.uk.com/products/clobberizer so I thought I'd give it a try. I've opted for the jar rather than the spray.
I know you've bought that stuff now but have you tried Autosmart Bio Brisk? When I got my Trendlines they stuck of smoke but they've now odour free :)

No but if the Carpro one doesn't work I'll definitely give it a try :up:
Give me a shout if you fancy trying the Bio Brisk, I bought a mahoosive bottle as it was the only size I could get hold of without going to an Autosmart Representative person, so I've got loads left. I don't mind putting some in a little bottle and posting it or bringing it to CSF if you've not sorted them before then! You don't need much and it is diluted down.

Ok cheers I'll let you know how I get on :up::up:

Nice. I think I'll bite the Rupes bullet in August myself.
I want a big foot as well but I'll have to wait a bit and do some more overtime 😂

My thinking was I needed a mini more than a full size one as I've already got a DAS.

And the vibrations from a DAS with a small backing plate on are ridiculous.

I've seen some reviews on YouTube and it looks awsome. Seems fairly quiet which is good.
Yeah they look good, as does the UHS polish system they have. It cuts, polishes and refines all in one. Seems to good to be true but the results look amazing.

Worth a look if you're wet sanding :up:

It's quite a reasonable price too.
Yeah, most of the Rupes pads aren't that cheap but they should last.

Not looked at their sanding discs, but i know the 3M Trizact discs are good, but they are dollar! Even go up to 6000 grit which makes the finish like glass!

Just googled and that looks brilliant!
I know, right! Watched one video where the guy sanded with the above mentioned 3M discs and then a hit with the UHS and it came out like a mirror pretty much. Bit OTT for the average car as it's really for hard German paint and wet sanding, but if you had to detail a car that had been washed with a brick and a bit tight on time, it's a winner really.

Damn you both. Just looking at them again now...
Which Rupes machine would you go for, for general use?
