Using virtually everything Autosmart at the moment - have 19 5ltr containers of their products in my garage .

The only thing I have been disappointed with was Trim Ultra - it just didn't work with my trim. Everything else does just what is says it will do for a damn good price.

I exclusively use AS. The products are grat, majority can be diluted to ridiculous levels like 1:100 and they always are easy to work with. I know from my rep AS is used by most of the major local dealers - bmw, land rover etc.

I've never tried Autoglym, no doubt it is good but it is expensive for what it is/in comparison.

I don't have any Autosmart products yet, but I'll be looking at getting a couple for this year. I've always been a big fan of Autoglym. It's what I started with and when I try something new, I always come back to it. I have a nice collection of their trade products now

I'm not a lover of Autoglym. Massively hyped up from being so readily available at all car spares stores and dealers. Main reason I don't like it is that the SRP is so dusty.

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

If you find SRP too dusty, chances are you are using too much product, or/and the old formula. I don't have any dusting from using SRP, it's a great product for what it is. Autoglym Clean All is an alternative to G101. I've never used G101, but from what I've read it cleans just as good, but has a nice fragrance rather then a nasty one. it has the same uses too. I use Super Sheen to dress wheel arch plastics, and I used to use it to dress tyres. It leaves a very nice look on tyres if its wiped after it has set. Tardis is one of the Autosmart products I'm going to try this year, heard nothing but good things about it

Possibly but I'll stick to the brands I know and love 😎

All very insightful - thank you chaps! I think I'll give some other Autosmart products a go and see how I get on with them. Tango is a product I love to use, but not too sure it's totally wax-safe?? I know it must be diluted accordingly but still not sure?
