    Default clay bar products

    i was in halfords today and seen a few claybars on sale didnt know what to buy so i thought i would ask someone who new what they were doing and going on about before i just bought any old one an that wouldnt be no good
    the options were between

    T-Cut Clay Bar Kit £21.99

    Meguiars Smooth Surface Clay Kit £25.99

    Turtle Wax Refine & Shine Clay Bar Kit £16.99

    Farecla G3 Professional Clay Bar 100g £14.99

    which would you recommend i use being a beginner and wanting to liven up the paint on me car and thought of this as a first step as it seems easy enough well easier than other things to do ??????

    Lots swear by Meguiars. I got it when they had their 3 for 2 thing on and nothing wrong with it at all. I realise it's the most expensive but came with a cloth, detailer, 2 bars and a liquid wax sample.

    I noticed a difference - mainly you want to go and feel your paintwork afterwards, seriously! (not a euphemism lol)

    Worth it IMO

    Nothing wrong with megs . I tend to use blithammer reg which can be had off e,bay for around 11 pounds ,and you only need water as a lube.
