Just wondering if there is something in the leaving it on too long theory although 7 mins doesn't seem that long. When I've used it, I've buffed off almost immediately doing just a small section at a...

Thanks for the replies so far guys. Sonax certainly gets a good press so I think I'll go with that for my next bottle but will also bear the other suggestions in mind. Finding as I get more into...

Just looking at this car, it still seems quite modern in terms of its shape. Very good use of interior space as I remember a pool car we had at work years ago. It was a 1.3 so not quite in this...
