    You get what you pay for here, the TW will work but you'll have to work harder to get the same finish that you'll get with Autoglym.

      I am sure you can get better results from the AG products, but for my car and probably the majority, clean and shiny is good enough but if you want super smooth and shiny, you can get better products, and spend a lot more too.

        I always found that TW is difficult to get a blemish free finish when polishing and waxing. Always a lot more elbow grease to get the job done well. Other than that It's good stuff.

    Purchased the Autoglym pack. Thanks! :)

    Autoglym body wash and the glass cleaner are excellent, haven't tried the others but will be picking the pack up.

      Shame that the Autoglym leather conditioner isn't in the pack. It has got to be one of the best. I was skeptical but trying the McGuires equivalent and the Autoglym creams it (literally)

    Perfect timing. My turtle is looking a little dull.

  •  

    Autoglym worth the $20 extra over Mother's?

    •  

      For what it's worth the Autoglym car wash seems to be 2.5l while Mother is only ~500ml (assuming same level of concentrate). Can't speak to quality though.

    I am just about to take ownership of a brand new Forester so I think I will be starting cleaning the car myself. I'm not likely to be super pedantic about it but what's a decent enough range to use to keep it looking decent?

    I have a pressure washer so would expect that to come into play as part of my new regime. It's been 12 years since I changed my car and have only taken it to the cheap places over that time given the lack of love for it.

    Cheers

      From the list above, the Autoglym pack looks value.

    •  

      If you have a pressure washer get a foam Lance and something like the autoglym polar blast to use in it. You will still need to wash it more thoroughly (look up the two bucket method) but for a quick rinse and wash to remove most of the dirt the foam lances work well.

      Just keep a decent polish or wax on the surface after washing, reapply when you no longer get water beading.

      The Autoglym pack would be the one to buy, has the stuff you need to keep both interior and exterior clean. Next to a lance for your pressure washer I would also pick up a wax/protective coating, buttload of microfibre towels, a set of detailing brushes and a wheel brush/wooly.

      congrats on the forester.

      i have a 2014 n/a and all i use is meguirs wash n wax (yellow). i use 2 bucket method and wash it weekly (since it doesn't live in a garage). looks/shines great.

      Cool car - well reviewed.
      My experience with cleaning cars is to be careful with pressure washers. I have done a lot of car washing (weekend job as teenager), and find pressure washers fairly useless when it comes to grime. A sponge works better and is less likely to cause damage or strip your coat of wax. I actually once stripped the paint of a car with a pressure cleaner (hey, my boss asked me to use it…).

      Another thing: Subaru will (or already has) tell/told you that the windows do not block UV. This is incorrect, but they tell you this to sell tint. I got stats directly from Subaru Australia which indicate that their privacy glass blocks 95-97% of UV. So I only got the front windows tinted.

      •  

        That is what we have decided to go with regards the windows. Looking forward to taking delivery I have to say having been driving around in the same car for the last 12 years.

      Go with a ceramic coat as first if you plan to keep the car for a while, will make washing the car easier and keep your paint protected for longer.

      Not the stuff that the dealer sells, but detailers themselves do, opti-coat or gyeon would be my recommendation.

    whats the point in NSW when you cannot wash your car without using the bucket method. tried the the bucket method once and will never do it again. I up ended using 10 buckets of watet to clean my car. used much more water than using a pressure cleaner.

    •  

      Based off the recent rains we've had (at least within the Greater Sydney region), I'm sure that water restrictions will be lowered to Level 1 at least. If anything, this is a great time for these to go on sale and to pick one up.

    •  

      You can attach a pressure washer to a bucket. Supercheap even sells a bucket with a hose attachment pre installed.

    Anyone have any idea how to apply the $10 loyalty credit you get from becoming a member? I don't see a code and it doesn't automatically apply to my cart

  •  

    Which would be best for a motorbike?

  •  

    Anybody got any recommendations on a foam lance? I presume they aren't all created equal or are they and some are ridiculously more expensive just because they can?

  •  

    I'd recommend anybody to get their car ceramic coated. (expensive but so worth it)

  •  

    The autoglym appears to be "out of stock" everywhere so you have to add $11.95 for the shipping, oh well

  •  

    What is the contaminants mats use for? Thanks
