    Default Greased lightning showroom shine

    Been watching Ideal World and they've been showcasing the above product - anyone used this, and what was the result?

    Thanks,

    Lots of divided opinions on this one. IIRC, the concensus is that it's a good polish/wax but only to be used once you've washed the car, NOT as they use it on a filthy motor.

    Do a search on the forum and also try searching for "Proshine" which is the forerunner to Showroom shine.

    Proshine is available here http://www.netparts.co.uk/store/inde...products_id=56 and they often have special offers.

    Oh, yes I use it and like it a lot.

    Showroom Shine is fantastic!

    Coincidentally, was looking at getting some more yesterday on Ideal World too! Seem to be cheaper than anywhere else as usually have a BOGOF offer.

    It's dead easy to use, so quick, but wouldn't risk it on a really mucky car!

    i use it on mine all the time, it is superb. dont use it the way they say though.

    Just use it after a wash like a normal wax, it comes off really easily and shines up lush,

    i'm at work now but i'll post up some pics later from the weekend

    You want to check under your bonnet mate. In the second pic I can clearly see a tree growing out of it.

    Yeah i've been using it for ages. Its excellent on ya glass and mirrors too.
    I wash the car as normal. Dry it off with a good cloth then spray & rub in.. wait 10 mins for it to dry and polish off with the cloth provided. instant shine with a good waxy finish.
    I do mine at least once every week. NICE
