I'd love to try seal feed, no way can I justify £40 though! Maybe one day....!

Rubber treatment

Fair enough I look at it that it's 40 quid that'll I'll never have to spend again. I've already done 4 cars outta bottle and doubt I've used 20/25 ml.

The door rubbers on my wife's Evoque, which are untreated were frozen this morning. I had to use Luke warm water to free them. The seals on my car, which has frameless windows were fine. They're treated with Gummipflege....

PERL is a great product and love to use it. For my rubber door, boot and bonnet seals I use autoglym rubber care which I got in a kit with the car. Seems to keep them looking fine and flexible. Worth a try

It's good for rubber seals for inside the door, keeps them from freezing but not sure if it's able to with stand the harsh winter weather.

from experience it doesnt do much to revive external rubber.it might soften it but it doesnt revive weathering

Thanks everyone. Seems I need to either stick with Perl or suck it up and invest in some seal feed!
