    The water magnet is good enough to take off water from the body after the wash. No circle movements and just a wipe is sufficient to take off water. Another thing is to ensure not to dry the cloth by twisting it hard to get rid of the water from the cloth.

    then how do i dry it for use on the next panel? or can 1 cloth hold enough water that wringing is not required at all ?

    This is where the microfiber cloth comes handy. The water magnet takes off water and the microfiber does the finishing job of drying it. But again, for a car like Linea, you would actually need 2 water magnets and 2 microfibers to wipe it dry and another one to use during waxing.

    To be honest, the quality is cheap and so is the cost. If a better quality one was available, I would have been happy to pay even 1000 bucks for this. Punto it can be fit, but no seen how the boot would look like with one.

    Yes, sort of looks complete. The only DIY that I did was order it online :evilsmile

    The rest of the work including unpacking was done at the friendly neighborhood shop where I got the Red Multijet sticker done.

    Thank you. I have been using my cars app from google play store on my Samsung Galaxy Note.

    PS: It started raining so had to make move and was not able to take any more pics. Hopefully the day time pics should either tomorrow or the day after when I get some time for leisure.
