Best car blow dryer

Hey guys,

The drips are driving me nuts so wanted to know you opnions on what car dryer to pick up?

Are the cheapo eBay rubbish?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Turbo-Bla...670855f91dbe0b


Any experience with the carbon collective one?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Carbon-Co...8AAOSwFZddnGkZ


Is the master blaster sidekick enough to dry a whole car?

Budget is between 100 - 150 or cheaper!

Cheers
E

Buy a cheap compressor from aldi (£79.99) got plenty of other uses after you've blown the car dry.

From what I have read from those who have them, the ebay ones seem to do a good job for the money, maybe not as good a job as a £250/ £300 machine but still good on a car with a good Coating/Sealant/Wax.

Personally, I'm waiting for the BigBoi Buddi to come back in stock at UF, then this will be used on all those annoying water traps and the wheels.

Some feedback on this comp from Aldi says it sprays oil. Would be very concerned about that.

I've used the master blaster which was great but too expensive. Those bigboi ones look good.

I've got a Wolf Apache which is essentially the same, fitted with a water trap and an adjustable self oiler for my air tools, never get any oil from mine.

No way you could dry a whole car with a sidekick, you would spend hours chasing water all over the car. It's fine for wheels, mirrors, around badges, etc. It's not amazing, just fine at doing it's job.

Be aware that these things are pretty noisy too.

If the drips are driving you mad (I feel the same) - it is worth trying to blow out these areas using a straw and your lungs to force the water out. Seems to make sense to try this instead of buying a new piece of kit just to take care of the drips!

I have the Bruhl MD2800 which is very similar to the Big Boi Pro but cheaper. Its a great blower, dries the whole car and I've had no issues with mine in the 20 months or so I've had it.

If they day ever comes where I go round my car blowing at it with a straw then I know I've really lost it, using a blow dryer is bad enough
