Autosmart is fantastic for the value. My main go to 3 are G101, Tardis and Highstyle (great for spraying in wheel arch plastics)

Very interesting many of the main dealers are using them! What would I use if I wanted a product similar to SRP?

Depends on what sort of finish/cut you require. Most people's choices are 3m, Menzerna or Scholl.

I have all the Scholl range and also Poorboys SSR 1 and 2.5

SRP only goes dusty when you use too much. Not exactly Autoglym's fault and such harsh criticism.
Winner of a LOT on here over the years.

Srp is a good product, it's just that mirror image is as good and cheaper

Just my opinion. I just don't get on with any Autoglym products tbh

been using Autosmart for a few years now and I think its brilliant, beforehand I would use Autoglym I still use the super resin polish but that's about it.

the main ones I use are

Duet- shampoo with carnauba wax
Red 7 - a bleeding fallout remover
Finish - interior dressing( just recently got this works great and smells nice to)
G101- APC works great nothing else to say really
ALI&ALI shine - mainly just use these for exhaust tips
Ultra Mousse- Snow foam, works ok but thinking of changing
Hazsafe xls - TFR This stuff worked well but would only use it on cars that was getting protection stripped off.
Highstyle- Another dressing I use for the tyres
Tardis - tar and glue remover works great
Glass clear - Glass cleaner works like it should
Glass Glow - Glass polish prefer this over glass clear can easily see if ive missed any bits
Bio Brisk - Very handy stuff great for getting rid of odours in upholstery
Berry Blast - love this air freshener there are others but not tried them yet
Cherry Glaze- don't use it often but I do really like this stuff and I don't know why but every time I see it I want to drink it.....

but yeah i think that is everything i need to try out tango and some of their waxes but i normally use poorboys for the wax and polish now

Use Mirror Image in place of SRP or Evo if you need more cut.

I use some Autosmart products and find them really good for the money!
I use
Autosmart Duet shampoo
Autosmart Highstyle
Autosmart Wax detail spray as clay lube
I find the Duet shampoo very good just have to be careful some waxes don't like to go on top after it's been washed with it..
Highstyle is great on tyres, trim and plastics under the bonnet, Keeps them like new!
And the Wax detail spray is awful as that, But I use it as a Clay Lube perfect for that!
