Never tried it but seen it compared pretty favorably to Sonax BSD which is ideal for using after washing to stop water spots and top up your wax\sealant. Let us know how you find it, I'll need to pick up something similar for washing over the summer as I've been finding black paint a nightmare to get a good finish on when the suns out.

Still beads water after applying it last summer, and paintwork looks good... Considering the winter we have had. Apply very sparingly to clean, smooth paintwork. However I suspect it comes off if you e.g. clean off tar spots.

Very good for the money I have found this. I used the Mrs 120d as the Guinea Pig to try it on, Which is prept reasonably well clayed around 4 months ago and cleaned an waxed most weekends. And the beading as lasted very well so far despite her having been out in the car the last few days in the rain and all mucky. I normally use Dodo Juice Acrylic Spritz or Dodo Juice Future Armour for this job so it will be a good test to see how it compares/lasts over the long run. Seems brill so far for Car Plan

Sounds decent. I've not tried any of the spray sealants but for £8 this sounds like it's worth a punt, seems like it'll at least give a wax sealant an easy top up for quick washes.

Works very well. Got some from Wilkinsons, Very easy to use and buff off, Have the whole car done in about 5-10mins. Lasts a good time with strong beading too. And leaves the car feeling very smooth and slick! Well worth having in the collection imo..

Good as a cheap drying aid. Wouldn't use it for much more than that.

Wouldn't use it as my main top up, That's Dodo Juice Future Armour. But as a make do to keep as an emergency it is great imo..
