Autoglym Polar Blast snow foam.

comes in 2.5L container, isnt a very thick liquid and doesnt really have any scent just a little chemically.

i measured out 1 inch in my lance bottle.



filled it up with warm water about 500ml




the car was wet from the rain the night before and dew with a bit of dust and dirt mostly on the back.







i didnt pre rinse the car just sprayed it with the foam which was more than enough for my 3 door ibiza and the lance was set to maximum foam like i always use









left it to dwell for 10 minutes and this is how it looked







and rinsed off which needed more rinsing as the foam was very thick! but i cant tell if it affected the wax at all as it has all worn off and needs re done next month.







Polar blast is a very thick foam which has a long dwell time, cleans well and also doesnt smell too bad. it seemed to take more rinsing off the car than other foams but that could be because my wax has worn off, its no big deal really.

the thing that i didnt like about this foam was the fact that after i had rinsed it off the car it seems to stay on the ground and not dissolve unlike like other foams ive used, maybe autoglym could advise with this? but other than that its a decent foam and i will be trying it out again with a much less dilution as it seems highly concentrated from seeing how thick it was.

Thanks for the review @OvEr_KiLL. I like snowfoam like this that clings for that little bit longer. I know most prefer the runnier types, but I also think that staying on the body, softens the dirt more as well as running it off. Fortunately for me my drive slopes very gently away from my house so I don't need to worry about the remains.

I spent 6 hours on my car today and started early, maybe too early as the pre-wash and foam were freezing on the roof of my A7 lol. I've never had to rinse ice away before.

Thanks for the review, remember the name of the product is Polar Blast, not Arctic Blast. Could you update the review so people can find it if searching?

Autoglym magma..

4 dirty wheels which are very corroded and not sealed.









i then rinsed them with water to get most of the dirt off, sprayed magma liberally all over the wheel which is a clear liquid and also doesnt stink like a normal fallout remover does, its more of a pleasant citrus scent and left to sit for about 5 minutes and then agitated with a brush as directed which left me with this (fronts are worse)









and rinsed off with the hose









Magma is a very capable fallout remover which works very well, i dont think i have seen a fallout remover react as much as this has done on the front wheels on this car! smells very nice, citrus which takes a lot of the stink away which is common with fallout removers. very pleasant to use!! i just need a bigger bottle now autoglym! thanx

Autoglym bumper and trim gel

a very clear liquid which smells fruity and not too thick

used about this much on the scuttle pannel



plastic scuttle panel before i applied it



50/50 as i was applying it



and fully applied and wiped gently with a microfibre cloth



wing mirror very faded



applied and wiped gently



rear mud flap



applied and wiped gently




i also did the rubber trim around the windows which worked well but didnt get any pictures as time was getting on. i also didnt wash the car first as i was in a bit of rush and really only wanted to do the scuttle panel but ended up doing more.


a really good product and easy to apply and wipe off and smells great, if you do get any on the bodywork/work glass just wipe it off. leaves a nice rich finish with a little bit of gloss and works very well on very faded plastic parts. not sure how long it will last though

Both great reviews. Thank you OvEr_KiLL. Definitely going to get some magma. And though I don't need trim gel for my car, my son's gf has a mini, and you all know what they are like. A follow up on the the longevity would be appreciated OvEr_KiLL.
