You might want to try Carparts4less.

I just ordered three bottles for £19 including delivery.

I love the stuff. Always handy to have around.

Is there any difference in the Sonax BSD I need to order?

Clean Your Car are showing a grey coloured bottle at over £12 plus delivery and Carparts4less are showing a clear bottle with blue liquid at £7.60 delivered.

I've only ever known it as a clear bottle with blue liquid in it.

The Sonax website shows it this way too - https://www.sonax.com/Product-Search...Shine-Detailer

PS - Don't forget to use the code "MAY16" on CP4L.

The older bottle was definitely a solid grey. Now they come in clear bottles. What I have noticed from my last 2 deliveries from Carparts4less (Carparts saver, seems to be their Ebay handle) is that the sprayer is different on my latest bottle. It's a lot bulkier with a tab for turning it to the spray position.
I haven't used it yet but it looks a nice strong affair.

I can understand people thinking BSD clogs microfibre. It's like spraying the car with a velvet glove It does tend to make the cloth feel a bit the same way but washes out okay.

As said just wash the cloth after use. Do let us know how you get on with BSD it is different to many QD's personally I love it it can be a bit grabby when first applied and as I said I use a spray of DD acrylic spritz on the cloth to help this.
There a lots and lots of posts on here of people actually mixing BSD with other products to get different results. Not something I've tried but sounds interesting.
Lots of QD's give nice results but the best thing about BSD for me is that it can stay effective on the car for weeks.
