Why DW is the best forum (Win prizes )

EDITED BY ADMIN -

So we have turned this into a win something thread on here and you might be picked to get a sample , a sticker , a full product , something fun and more ...we are looking through DW towers and this is a massive giveaway think 12 days of Xmas but on a larger but smaller prize scale ... not everybody will get something we will randomly pick people , you might have responded to a post we made we must just ask for your address but all you have to do to keep this going is keep the thread alive - what we ask for in return is a picture of what you get and a review of something in the pack if you get a product - if you don't need it feel free to pass it on to another member ..... Whizzer




I got a PM from WHIZZER just after New Year saying he was sending me something in the post to do a review of after i missed out on the 12 days of christmas. Now this to me was beyond generous because others missed out too, however i graciously accepted(who am i kidding, i was like a little kid at christmas again lol) and awaited 'the little something' that he had sent.
I got to mums this morning to be greeted by a bigger parcel than i expected and after opening i was greeted by the following items




The copy of evo is my own but this is basically a waxybox from what i can see and to say i am overjoyed is an understatement. Anyway, to WHIZZER and all at DW Towers can i just say a humongous thank you for this, the gesture alone was beyond anything i expected and i promise as soon as i can, i will test some of the items and do a review. I will get them all tested and continue to update this thread as and when i get them all tested.


To all the members of DW, this is why this place is the best as you all have something valuable to contribute and makes this place feel like home.

Oh brilliant, i'm so glad someone else is going to get something similar, enjoy s29anta

Anyway, my first review.
As i had already washed the car and dried it, i decided to give .50Cal's 20-20 glass cleaner a go. Found an empty spray bottle and washed it out thoroughly before adding the 20-20 to it and going outside to do the glass. Now i only did the front screen in and out, but did the mirrors and all the other glass outside.
First off it's quite a vibrant blue colour which i think you can see in the picture above, it's also rather fragrant with a smell somewhere between a fruit and a strong cleaner.

Ease of application: On the exterior you spray on and wipe off and having used The Visor by the now sadly defunct Wax-Tec, this was a revelation for me having struggled with The Visor(my own fault i think). It spread easily and started to evaporate quite quickly but wiped off very easily and so far seems to be streak free, time will tell.
On the interior you spread it about by microfibre and it's exactly the same story as the exterior performance wise.

Cleaning ability: Not much i can say here, it removed the water marks and seems to have removed old smears very easily.

Overall: Very easy to use, smell is not too bad and if it performs as well as initial inspections seems to suggest, this could very well be my new go to window cleaner.

So for marks out of ten, bearing in mind i haven't driven the car yet, i'm going with a 7/10 until i get to drive the car. This mark will be updated when i get to work at 4pm today.
