Another vote.

I used their wash, cut and polish (and polish and polish and polish and polish) for the Canberra show and shine, the EL came up showroom finish, and wet-look.

More than a month later, and all it needs is a hose down to get clean again.

I was working in the industry for about 8 years and I won't go past Series 500 It's really good stuff , I use Meguiars if Series isn't available. data_mine becareful with the cut & polish as they design them for faded cars that need restoration as they actually eat away at the clear coat or top layer of paint. IF I have to use a cut I'll use a seperate cut and then use a polish.
Cheers Glen

No it was a seperate cut, then 5 coats/layers of polish.

damn straight, seen the stuff in action, works a charm, bug and tar remover, removes the roughness off paintwork (clay bar) back to black worked wicked on my bumper, to get it back to looking brand new.
so another vote for mothers. (plus they smell nice too)
