Thank you DW (finally used BSD)

As per the title.
Ordered some BSD just before snow gripped the country after reading so much about it on here. Itís taken until today to excitedly try it out.
Would it be overrated?
Would it be any better than many other QD sprays Iíve tried really?
Would it be awkward to apply or buff off?
Would I be able to tell Iíve applied it after only putting topaz on a couple weeks ago?

Well, all I can say is thank you DW.

Would it be overrated - Not on first impressions!
Better than other QD sprays- yup!
Awkward to apply or buff off- feels a bit grabby but was prepared for that.
Can I tell Iíve applied it over topaz- hell yeah!

I used it on a mainly dry car. So as a slight drying aid. I played about with applying it directly to the panel or to a microfibre & still unsure which worked better.
I also then washed wifeys car afterwards & saw its beading qualities with a misjudged hose waft.
So out of interest, I gave wifeys motor a going over with dodo QD to compare beading and longevity side by side.

I suppose now itís time to read up on mixing it with other products. Is this for longevity of the product or for application purposes mainly?

Thanks though, itís forums like this that help people spend money on the right things and not fall for the advertising waffle/media hype!

It's mixed with other QD's to aid application and removal. BSD is a bit thick and doesn't spray the best, and like you experienced, can be a bit grabby. Mixed with a slick QD gets you the best of both. There is many mixs done already with great success. I tried mixing mine in 100ml sample bottles as too not waste loads of product if it didn't work too well.

On a wet car for me, no mixing, one mf to spread/blot, one mf to buff, have tried a LOT of others, always go back to it.

My favourite so far is on a dry car 50:50 with Adams detail spray. It's for application and better gloss as BSD isn't the glossiest but water behaviour is second to none.

It is a great product seems to last a good 4 to 6 weeks and the water behaviour is second to none.

Always used BSD wet, as a drying aid, over every surface.

Its epic stuff - always makes me smile when i think how cheap it is, how glossy it is and how long it beads for.
