I've had a Metrovac Blaster Sidekick since December 2014.

There may be times when you cant be bothered to plug it in, but now I have two cars to keep on top of, and sometimes don't get to drive them around before putting them back away, the Blaster Sidekick is invaluable for drying out the discs/wheels etc.

I like mine, its lasted 3.5 years and I guess I'm actually using it more and more now.

I have a Porsche and a Clio 200 and I dry the whole car with it. No problem.
Porsche is great because it blows the beads off the convertible roof in no time.

Door shuts, wing mirrors etc - sorted.

You'll like it mate if you're anything like me.
Once its bought, its bought

I've found myself drying the car normally and using the blow gun on my compressor to blow water out of the seals.

I think that they are a worthy purchase. I still use mine at times even though I have a DI vessel as it means that I can crack on rather than waiting for stuff to dry.

I looked at the Metro, but ended up buying and using a pet drier, different nozzles and is quite powerful, less than half the price for those of us on a budget.

Great bit of kit. You’ll need ear plugs or decent sealing headphones when you reach the wheel nuts though.
