    How can you tell if your car has Safegaurd applied? Does water repell differently only I was told by the dealership they would throw it in free of charge as I knew the salesman I wouldn't be suprised if they didn't as they were very close to not having the car ready in time for collection.

    It desperately needs claying and am wondering if I just may aswell do it & re wax it again with something else.

    If you give your motor a good claying, then polish to remove the swirls (if there are any) and then either a coat of sealent or wax (I use both) it should give your motor very good protection. But you will need to "top up" the wax from time to time. I find that Colinite or Victoria Concours wax last a long time, The Colinite is brilliant for over the winter.

    to be honest.. the safegaurd stuff isnt all that great.. you would get better results etc by a thorough clay/polish/seal/wax process and keep on top of it every month or so with a wax top up..

    Sonus Green is advertised as not removing Wax, so the super fine clays might be fine, but I do stress might.

    clay bar wont necessarily remove supaguard, not if its had the full cure time when it was applied.

    If you do want to remove it, google some co-polymer remover
