Some pictures:

Due to a crap 'Valet' at the Dealer, which inflicted swirls and holograms
Polished with Sonax Polish and then waxed with Soft99 Authentic Wax and topped with Zaino Z8







We both love it!!

Ive tried a few, but aways come back to Megs EnduranceTIP: Rub it almost off, when applied, with an old MF cloth and it will not fly all over..Apologies if you do this already

If you are interested in trying out a new tyre dressing, then check out Valeters Pride Tyre and Trim Dressing. Goes on well, stays on a long time, doesn't run off and is non-sticky.
I also did a side-by side comparison with some Autoglym tyre dressing I had on a large section of unpainted plastic trim ... The Valeters Pride stuff lasted weeks. The Autogym gear just days (and also left a residue if you passed your hand over it, whereas the VP side left your hand clean)

Just had a look on their website and can't see the same product anymore (I bought it over 2 years ago), but may now be called the Vinyl Polish tyre and trim dressing?

Nice finish. I've got a black ds4 as well and it's a constant job to keep it looking it's best, especially at this time of year :)

Is this the stuff?

I think so, as all the dressings are now desciribed as Silcon ones.
But I don't recall the stuff I bought being described as a Silcone based product, and I stayed away from known Silicone products as they play havoc with paint spraying, as you will know (I used the dressing to smarten the wheel+tyre sets after refurbishing them from my Mobile workshop.
I will see if I can find the receipt (the original product got decanted into 500ml bottled long ago!)

Edit: just thought I could check my emails for the order

The description of the product was "LONG LIFE TYRE, RUBBER TRIM AND BUMPER DRESSING 5 LITRE" and the price was £14.95 back in Sept 2012.
It was great stuff
I'll have another check on the website ....
I just checked a post I made on my RAV4 Forum about this back in Dec 2013 and the link I posted takes you to this:
http://www.valeterspride.co.uk/5-li...yre-rubber-trim-and-bumper-dressing-209-p.asp - so would seem to be the silicone one.Edited by: Hoovie

Yup
no problem on rubber obviously, but it is not a great idea to have silicone products anywhere near where you want to paint! Little bit of an adhesion problem
