Wouldn't bother with the Bruhl.. based on my (limited) understanding that's no more powerful than a pet dryer with a brand name stuck on it. No heat is a further downside.

Only surprising thing about the incident was that it was a yellow initially. Very clear mistake.

The handball rule is nonsense as was Bissouma's red. Crazy

Full detail on my mum's new (to her) Sh*troen. Badly swirled and a few deep scratches and stone chips. Huge transformation in one day - just a one step correction with a mix of Rotary and DA.

How do you work that out? It's a completely inferior, unwieldy and arguably unsafe tool in comparison.

I will persevere. Personally find they are a bit too aggressive for soft to medium clear and foam does an overall better job quicker on these paints. Could just be me / my technique.

I've used it on my own in the past, works absolutely fine - barely noticed it wear off, presumably a douse of auto foam stripped it before I noticed it degrading.

Not reckon you'll miss the grumble from your A45? Veloce a much more refined looking and economical driving car but has very little personality to it's engine until you go up to the QV version.......

Surfex and Greenstar are too potent to be using, yes they'll degrease exceptionally well but you are better with a dedicated leather product.
