Not the windscreen or rear window if you have a wiper. Use G1 or G5 for that.

I have put it on the side windows and it worked Ok but that's not what it is designed for. I use G5 on all my windows.

I use Mo Bacter and think it's great. The moss just dies away (literally disappears) and the grass comes back to replace it. You need to get your dosage right and can't leave it for more than about a...

I had slight water spot marking with EXO V2 but since putting EXO V3 on in the spring, there have been no such problems. It is a significantly superior product in my opinion.

Amy's response is much more a reflection of the kind of service GTechniq have given me over the years. I have no complaints.

The video looks as though you have buffer trails - you probably need to get a black Hex pad and use it with the M205.

I think I would go with CSL and EXO V3 if you want any kind of long term protection and great shine.

I asked the same question of Rob when CSL came out and was told that a good wipe down with PW should be sufficient before applying CSL.

I asked specifically if I had to machine polish first and...

I prefer G5 on the side and rear windows because the water moves off more quickly and without a wiper, it lasts up to 6 months (I tend to do mine every 4 or 5 months). It is also very quick and easy...

I use it on the wife's car and it lasts a good 6 to 8 weeks before there is a noticeable drop off. I think it's great stuff.

A girl at work has the Mitsubishi PHEV and they reckon their electric bills have increased about £15/mth when the car is getting charged daily, so that's nearly 3 gallons worth.

With Jaguar Land Rover being so heavily dependant on diesels (and probably un saleable as petrols in the UK) I can see some political compromises on the Euro 6 diesels for some time to come.

I don't find C2V3 to be as hydrophobic as EXO although it is very good. Once you put C2V3 on top of EXO, you have lost the benefits of EXO and have replaced them with the performance of C2V3.
