A satin tyre dressing

As the title suggests, I'm after a 'satin-y' tyre shine. I dont like really shiny tyres, more so a dark, new look as well as decent durability. All i seem to hear about is 'megs endurance' but is it very high gloss? And does it last long? I seen Orchard Autocare's glitz but I don't know if I can justify £10 on 500ml.
Can anyone 'shine' a bit of light on this for me?
Thanks, Rían

Good man, that seems pretty good value. I'll have a poke round the website and see, if need be i'll ring them. Postage should be expensive to N.I

+1 for the 3M but durability isnt great, if you want to spend a bit more thenZanio Z16 is the one to go for, gives a natural look with good durability imo.

Fair enough, it makes it more pleasant if the seller is easy to deal with. Have you any suggestions of what to buy?
