Tried CarPro Pearl..pic

I tried out the CarPro PERL which arrived this morning.

First impressions are it's an okay product. I don't know about durability yet but it certainly looks as though it will be economical. Tried some on the black plastics and rubber is the boot, very nice on those.




I would like to find a nice all in one alloy wheel cleaner which includes a fall out remover.

PERL is a great product, Harry, and as you said it's very economical as it can be diluted to suit.

Have a look at Autosmart Red-7 it may be just the thing for you. https://autosmart.co.uk/products/cre7014c-red-7

You can find your local rep through the website.

Cheers.

Cheers Niall and thanks for the link, I'll take a look. Forgot to say I applied the PERL 1:1 strength.

I'm tempted to try pearl as I'm fed up with the sticky gunk Megs Endurance leave on the tyres after a few applications but also tempted by Adams VRT and Tyre Shine.

Hi Gaz,

PERL is far less messy than Megs Endurance, in fact if you clean your tyres really well there is no grease at all as it's a water based product. I'm very pleased with the satin look, The proof will be how long it lasts but on to well cleaned tyres I'm expecting good results.
I'll report back in a few weeks.

Harry.

That does sound good and really good value.

I’ve read Pearl dilluted 1:1 and two applications looks better and lasts longer than straight from the bottle.
