Sonax BSD

Sonax BSD seems to get great reviews on how well it repels water. But does it make improvement in terms of when washing the car? Does the dirt come off easier as like ceramic coatings?

I have recently bought a new to me focus ST3 estate in stealth grey - it was prepped before collection by myself and was coated in AF tripple and BSD - the colour of the car is pretty good for hiding the dirt as when i cleaned it a couple of weeks later, i simply snow foamed the car and jet washed it off... the difference between the un jet-washed areas and jet-washed areas was day and night - the stealth grey paint really brightened up making me realise the car was a lot dirtier than i thought so i would say yes... pretty good!

Look at Optimum Car Wax, spray on wipe off, much easier than BSD and I find better results too.

Then top with Gyeon Wet Coat.

You will have a very slick finish that repels water like mad.

They would work even better if you clay the car first and give it a light polish using either machine or hand.

AS Topaz, Autoglym Super resin polish, Dodo juice lime prime etc.

In word yes. Its key features are the beading it creates ,low price and sealing ability leading to a lot of surface much coming off with just a pressure washer and or snowfoam.

I LOVE BSD, It works well on a protected surface, a little goes a long way with it and the beading is some of the best I have seen

I do find it helps with cleaning the car as snowfoam on top will bring most of the dirt off easily then a hand wash and dry in no time

Thanks for this, just ordered another bottle. Probably the best value detailing product you can buy IMO. Brilliant for keeping that shine topped up after a quick wash.
