I reckon armour all is pretty ordinary, dont know why those dumb asses on the ad cant stop straing at their cars. There protectant wipes arent that good, their window cleaner is crap and their wash and wax is very ordinary. Think i might switch to meguires.

its probably because your FG has a poor quality paintjob from the factory with more orange peel than you can poke a stick at

been using wash'n'wax for 8 years on my cars and theyve all come up brilliant along with the occasional polish every 6 months

and window cleaner?...... i use $2 s**t from super cheap, and i dunno how a window is supposed to get any f**k cleaner than it does lol :lol:

I put about 50ml of Metho in mine. For a window cleaner, I use GHS Window Cleaner, it's glazing stuff, works better than anything else.

in the xr i use just plain water as i hate the soapy marks when it dries but in all of my other cars i use the ford wiper solution p/n - r147a, but as mentioned above its pretty concentrated and needs to be added to an empty reservoir with fresh water.

you can make your own solution with metho an pneumonia, cant remember the exact mixture though

or just add a couple of cap fulls of windex to your washer bottle

no but why do you think it's a stupid question?
glass is an important part of the car and there must be a reason why they spend so much money on R&D for washer fluids

you obviously dont look after your car glass :D

Because it is a stupid question, common sense dictates the answer you require.

you can make your own solution with metho an pneumonia, cant remember the exact mixture though

or just add a couple of cap fulls of windex to your washer bottle


Uummmm.....pneumonia is a lung condition.....can cause death too.

Do you mean Ammonia......a bleaching agent, not to get on paint???
