Right here we go tried this out last night.

Tried it on the car wing first, noticed its rusting away so not bothered 1f it marked it or not.

Its funny stuff, not what I was expecting at all. It sprays out like a thick AG SRP
I was expecting a watery substance not like this. Car was not that dirty so I used one microfiber to clean the wing and one to buff.
It cleaned well, left no marring, and a great shine. Beading this morning is good too.

Not all good tho. The spray goes everywhere, the overspray drys white and chalky and it REALLY makes a mess of black plastic.

Would I use it again on the car, no chance but I did my caravan with it and will be happy to use it up on that.

Got too bottles, might take one back

Tried mine yesterday & I agree with all of the above. I thought the spray head "Looked" good, but as stated it sprayed everywhere. I wont be buying it again

Don't blame you. Really wanted it to be good and it is in a way, just the spray head and the marking of plastic that annoyed me.

As I said will use it up on the caravan and try and take the unused one back.
