    Autoglym

    Taking delivery of my 3 years awaited black 997 turbo TT tip on Friday. My garage is trying to sell me Autoglym lifetime sealant treatment for Pounds360. Does it really keep the quality of the paint up to showroom condition as they claim? Anyone tried it?

    I don't trust Autoglym products ever since their aggresively acidic wheel cleaner ate the alloy wheels on a BMW I used to own. I had a "lifetime" wax treatment on several cars and "lifetime" never seemed that long.

    Personally I'd go for a programmed regular wax treatment such as Zymol offers.

    Good luck with your 997 turbo tip, you lucky chap.

    Wouldn't bother if I was you! Spend Pounds360 on some Zymol and enjoy looking after it yourself!

    You can buy the Autoglym lifeshine kit on ebay for Pounds25 - takes about 3 hours to do the interior and exterior.

    So you are paying Pounds330 for someone elses labour !

    EVO magazine had it applied to their lime green elise - they said it looked as good when they sold it on as it did when first protected ?

    Pounds360 will also get you a Zymol preparation that maybe won't last as long as the Autglym, but will look much much better in terms of depth of shine.

    Horses for courses - Zymol is great if you want to put the effort in

    Pounds360? I paid about Pounds130 for the complete base kit plus wheel cleaner, brush and special chamois. Link to very helpful and honest Zymol franchisee who sells on line. Useful tips on his site, too. www.johnswax.co.uk/

    Re: Autoglym

    You having spent >Pounds100,000 (>$200,000) on a car I'd suggest with going with one of these options. "Pounds330 for someone else's labour" = well worth it. Whatever the local BMW dealer applied (for a similar sum) to my M5 works better than what the Porsche dealer applied to the Cayenne Turbo for Pounds200, but both worth it. (Both are black cars, but the M5 stays black for longer.) How much does the rolling Zymol programme cost?

    Re: Autoglym

    If you're in London, get it Permagarded. Had it on three of my cars, including two new ones. Mike Perry who runs Permagard has a background running Lamborghini in UK and also worked for Pagani. Credentials do not come more blue chip than that. They are near to Canary Wharf.
