    I buy from them directly, from UK as I use most of their products and a lot of my friends and fellow detailing enthusiasts source these from me. We get the benefit of bulk buying. You can buy directly from their website.

    Guys,

    Today spend 2 hours detailing my car. Used Optimum Wash and Wax via 2 bucket method. The outcome was clean and good but not to my expectations. Well after 2 hours it rained :(

    Any ways, i got 2 concerns here.

    1. Wash and Wax solution could not remove some of the dotted stains on the body. I believe they are oil/unburnt fuel stains. Few of them went off on a bit of rubbing via microfiber cloth, but few needed alot of more preassure. More preassure ones i left it as is coz i do not want to induce scratches. I am guessing the Wash and Wax cant take off these stains as its not soapy as its shown on many videos over youtube. So any idea guys what i should do? Should i go for a seperate car wash solution to take off those stains?

    2. On the bottle it says this solution is wash and wax type. But is waxing still needed after drying up the surface? lyk its shown in videos?

    Please no pouncing on me. Pardon me if its a basic question but cant find an answer to it.

    Please buy dedicated products. There is a famous saying "never do 2 things at once " and it holds everywhere.
    You will feel the wetness that waxing produces and find it working but it loses out very fast

    Hmm.. OK sham. Initially i wanted 2 buy two different from meguiars, but saw this Optimum on ebay and thought why not try it out. After this one gets over, ill go for different products.

    But again, will the different/dedicated products can remove those oil stains?

    Waxing is really really painful job. Now i understand Sham pain in keeping his black beauty sparkling ;)

    ^ Nice effort. Even I cleaned my car this week:

    One wipe with soap water and this is the result:

    That S10 is epic.

    Guys, is Sham (Auto Mall) still in business? I've been looking to source some Mothers Mag & Al Polish. Or any other guy who stocks it.

    Cheers.
