    Talking Had the Signum Machine polished and buffed today :)

    As the title says - I took the Signum to a local detailer to get it machine polished and buffed as the swirls were so bad there was no way I was getting them out by hand!

    Anyway here are the results







    Had the boyfriend take off the lights and give them a good polish!

    I didn't get any closer shots of the damage unfortunately , it was owned by an old man so Im assuming he used a brush to wash it as it was covered in brush marks and swirls! The guy did such a good job I didn't ask what he used due to excitement lol

    But very pleased with the results all for just £60!!! Just going to keep up it now with the usual Autoglym products

    Very nice! Have you tried Autoglym ultra deep shine on your car? Its a polish and a wax in one and will really bring the colour out on your car as its good for darker coloured cars

    Yeah that is what I use, generally when washing the car I use snow foam first, followed by a wash (autoglym shampoo) using the 2 bucket method, a layer of AutoGlym UDS and then gloss protection which just makes it looks like a mirror! Love all of the autoglym range
