    Default Supaguard or not to Supaguard?

    Hi all.
    Been scanning through Fleabay and i can pickup some of the supaguard kit interior/exterior for a nice little sum.
    My concerns are the interior cause i have 3 rugrats and they could make a mess of things in a heartbeat. LoL. (Bless them)
    Has anyone here tried the suparguard products, let me here what you think.
    Thx for reading

    Interior is pretty good, bit like scotchguard, worth having if you have littleuns in the car.

    Exterior? 5 years protection? Yeah right! Save your money and buy some good polishes, waxes, sealants and cloths and do it yourself every so often.

    Much more satisfying too.

    Hi Andrew's SRi.
    Thx for the reply m8ty.
    What i was thinking was this, because the supaguard polish/sealer? can be purchased for such an affordable price can i not just use it like a would any other body polish (wax up every 2-3 months or something like that)
    To be honest with ya i'm not 100% sure if it is a wax, i see its sold as a sealant but can i use it as a wax also?
    If anyone can confirm this i'd appreciated it.

    I've seen it used before, it is literally a sponge, with a few slits put in it, that releases a gloopy liquid, and is buffed off in the usual manner.

    I had it on a car before, After 3 months, I went back to normal Autoglym to restore a shine on it. As for wax content, can't really rmember as it was a long time ago, but I recall it didn't really do much to 'bead' water, nor did it make washing the car any easier, which is another angle Dealers will use to sell it to you.

    As such, I'd go with the interior but stick to conventional stuff for the outside. Like I say, It's more interesting seeing what's about on places like www.cleanandshiny.com and using them yourself.

    Just my opinion of course!

    i had it, don't waste your money.
    vx charged me 300 quid i think, thats for your car to be done and a nice little case with all the bits you need to keep it looking good.
    spend the money on a cleaning kit you know will do the job cos 300 quid will keep you going for a long time

    I used to do this myself for dealers, it came as an add on to the new car valet that I had done, for the money it's an absolute con, go to halfords and get a tub of Mer liquid polish, and any can of upholstery guard from either a car shop or furniture store, the inside one only protects the cloth, not the plastics, and inho the jury is out as to whether it actually does anything, the process is simple, if it's in a prop can just spray away, and if it's in a refill type, get an atomiser and fill and spray, it's so simple, and that's why it's best you diy it anyway, you will cover more surface area than the untrained valeter who will just go squirt squirt squirt until he feels it's done, hth.

    Have to say I use it, not only on my C but my old B as well,but it only cost me £50 to have done inside & out ! at my main dealers and I have a warranty for 3 years also.
    It certainly keeps the car looking shiny and is a lot easier to wash, I now use Megs water magnet to dry of with and the result is the bizz,if you are going to do it yourself a good polisher [PC] will be required to bring it to its best,I also give the car a coat of suregaurd cream every few months.

    it is each to his own you pays your money and takes your choice.

    Waste of money! Had (by default) on the beemer and I couldn't tell any difference between that and a set of decent cleaning equipment from AG/Megs. They give you a nice bag tho containing spray cans and stuff, bit like a valeting set you can buy. I use the bag now to store my AG and Megs stuff

    Bizarrely though when we p/x'd the beemer for the VX the guy asked if the car had been supaguarded.
