      Meh no complaints from me but then I just used to use Meguiars quick detailer and in comparison the Boss Gloss is shitloads easier to buff off, leaves the car looking shinier and feels super slippery (admittedly my car is regularly clayed and polished so Boss Gloss won't make shit paint feel good)

        Try P&S Beadmaker which you can get easily in Australia. Its incredible and you can get 3.8L of it on sale for around $60.

            Any of you guys tried some of the Bilt Hamber products. Apparently meant to be pretty good, I've seen some decent reviews online. Only issue is importer is PPC so has the typical PPC markup.

            I've ordered some of their clay, Korrosol, and Auto-foam.

            Interested to see how the auto-foam goes because honestly I find the Bowdens Snow job doesn't achieve much.

            Currently I use the Snow-job, Nano, and After-glow. I was using Fully slick but based off something I read i switched to Afterglow since it is meant to attract less dust etc. (anti-static effect or something) and my experience seems to indicate that is true. I tried out their new Happy Endings product on the nopics A4 but wasn't very impressed so will probably stick to the Afterglow. I was going to try out another product once my current bottle starts running low I might try the Beadmaker FLI355 mentions as I've heard plenty of good things about it.

              So far I really like Bowden's. admittedly I don't have a lot to compare it to as my last few cars were washed at a car wash most of the time.

              Bowden's products are easy to use and appear to last. Boss gloss or fully slick after every wash and only takes a few minutes to do the whole car. Holds it gloss, feels smooth, beads really well after the next wash.

              I think they have way too many products and they overlap in their usage. I really only need nano, boss gloss and wheely clean regularly, and occasional lazy wax, clay, an possibly three way.

                Yea, I use the Auto-wash, clay bar, the Auto foam and the Surfex HD. All fantastic products, hard to find better really. The auto foam can also be used as a pre-wash in a sprayer rather than full a snowfoam as well and it work great like that too. I actually bought a gallon of the Autofoam from ebay a while back, imported from the UK cheaper than what PPC sell it for (go figure) however I couldn't find anyone shipping the Surfex HD from the UK so bought a gallon from PPC (PPC were more expensive for a 1 litre bottle compared to 1 gallon in the UK). However, the highest dilution I use it at is typically 10% so I have barely even got through 1 litre of the neat product.

                    For a quick spray on detailer. It really does live up to the hype you see on Youtube.
                    Not sure about the longevity. But do let it sit overnight if you can and watch the gloss deepen.

                      Yep leaving it does help. I use it as a drying aid. Works awesome

                          For the P&S Beadmaker or just general car washing stuff?

                          If the latter, Care Care Products have a showroom in Brisbane apparently.
