Supagard treatment at Stealers & Photo Shoot...

Took the car in to Stealers to fit private plates and took them up on the offer of a full valet & Supagard treatment... Im a bit sceptical about the Supagard after reading lots of negative reports? but I thought Id give it a go as it was part of the deal.
Far play the finish they put on the car is awesome so couldnt resist taking a few pics...

Thanks, How do you currently clean your car? I've heard some products will take the Supagard off?

Question
Why do you guys in GB spend so much time cleaning and polishing cars. It can not be because of all the sun you get.
We down under clean them every so often and that's about it. We never polish them even BMW says don't even think of polishing the car for at least 6 months.
My black Z4 which was 3 years old was never polished and still look great when I traded it in.

Because its wet, mucky, and miserable, and we need something to brighten up our otherwise dull lives.

Now you've said that, I sort of agree? but my car is rarely shiny... so had to show it off... and black does turn into a mirror when polished.

What product did they give you? will the car clean up with just a pressure wash? without the sponge and shammy?

Got a bag full of stuff, shampoo, alloy cleaner, tyre dressing and scratch remover etc. Jet wash alone will not clean it, not mine anyway

Fab shine on the car Koalway Kid, it looks great. I declined the treatment and just rely on a weekly wash and wax about every 2 mths!

Did you know that there is a direct correlation between how often your car is cleaned and polished and the presence of reflective shop front windows and the street you like to drive down (slowly)
I was really annoyed when they put 40kph speed limits on all the inner city streets here, but since I have had my F20 'Estoril blue' I somehow like driving very slow in town on a Sunday with all those reflective shop fronts.
