Williams Waterless Wash and Wax

Saw this on Amazon a few weeks ago and being a recent convert to this type of product for cars that are more dusty than dirty I thought I'd give this a go

4 x 1 litre bottles with 2 trigger sprays and a lovely cherry smell

To be honest my hopes were not high for such an inexpensive product but its actually really good

Sprays on nicely and feels almost like syrup as you wipe it over the panel

Leaves a lovely smooth finish with minimal effort required

Best of all its just over £5 a bottle

Looks like the perfect stuff to take to a car meet/show for a final spruce up
Just realized that's 3 Andys in a row on a thread

This was on Ideal World but it’s discontinued now they seem to have a never ending supply of the same product with different names now they have Top Gear waterless wash and wax also Car Shark wash and wax and Renault F1 wash and wax they are on special offer regularly at £20 for 10 litres and £4:99 postage. I still have some of their Greased Lightening somewhere.

Nice car Mr.

I bought some on the shopping channel (freeview 22) quite a while ago and the triggers were faulty. I emailed them and they sent me another box of product and spray (I think I received another 4 bottles) so I have a load in my garage.

I keep one in the car in case I get a bird splat while I'm out. I once went for a pub lunch and a bird did a massive splat on an old black slk I had gone in. The splat was on less than 2 hours and it burned the paint.

I wouldn't use it how they use it on filthy cars but I like it as a quick going over when I've just washed it or as an emergency bird splat eliminator

I emailed them when the Renault one started being advertised and they seemed to ditch the Williams. I asked them if it was the same thing, just rebranded. They didn't reply.
The microfibres I bought at the same time were rubbish though. Very rough.

You'd be better off making a waterless wash with a rinseless concentrate just dilute down 1:10 - 1:20 its cheaper and works better.

Silver is quite a forgiving colour for hiding swirls etc. I wouldnt use a product like that on darker coloured cars.
