Back after a long time

Hi all "again"

Getting back into taking care of my car after a longtime away. My last few cars just didn't give me the required buzz to give it that extra TLC. I didn't post much last time round but always got great advice on this page.

I'm a complete again.

Few questions, would it safe to use Autoglym products that haven't been used in years. Also what polish would ya recommend for a Silver 4 Series BMW?

Thanks Guys.

Providing they’ve not separated out, give them a good shake and if okay, then yes should be okay to use - try on a small inconspicuous area first to make sure.

Wax - I really like DetailedOnline Surreal wax on my silver motor, very easy to apply and gives a fantastic finish...

Or G3 supergloss wax, again very easy to apply and gives a fantastic gloss...

Thanks for the info, shame to let them go to waste. I gave the engine cleaner a small use, seems to still do the job.
