Polish Angel Engine - My review

I was intrigued by this stuff being it cleans and protects and contains oils that nourish the plastic. I decided to try it on the Subaru. This isn't much of a test, as it's only been a few days, but I wanted to see if it repels dust and how it holds up to heat. It goes on extremely easy as you only need a VERY little amount, which makes it more cost effective. It certainly has a nice look to it. I will continue to use this on this car to test it further. I'm very happy with Hyper-Dressing though due to spraying it on the engine (which allows you to get it in more places than doing it by hand) and how it settles at 4:1. (I'll post pics of that next).

I'm going to next try Turtle Wax ICE Seal N Shine in the engine bay due to it's superior hydrophobic qualities. The TW SNS may be my go for all exterior plastic trim and engine bay plastic.

Looks tidy. Do you think it could work on matte / textured exterior trim ? As I need to do both engine and trim, this would be perfect.

This makes no sense, Its a cleaner for removing engine muck (oil) that leaves oils behind?

Think about this!

Update. I'm not sure how I feel about this product. With 303 and Hyper-Dressing, I'm not sure what the advantages are with Polish Angel Engine. It's main selling point is for those that don't want to introduce water into the engine bay. It does leave a beautiful matte finish and smells great. The issue is it takes a very long time to clean an engine with this stuff vs using a hose/power washer (carefully of course) and applying a spray dressing. It does have more hydrophobic properties to it than 303 but 303 looks every bit as good.

I was concerned that being you apply it to a dirty engine, then agitate it with a brush or cloth that you would put fine scratches into the plastic. So far I have not had that problem with it.

Looks a very nice finish indeed

Not something I've used, but definitely one to consider
