Be careful with QDs if its too bad... its fine for fine dust and fingerprints etc but if you use it on sand etc then you'll add plenty of microscratches... I wouldn't want to drag sand over paintwork.

get what you mean Alex. I don't think it was that bad, but I'm still yet to clay, polish and wax my adam properly. hopeful for a nice day to do this when I'm off work. Iv been using aqua wax atm after you rinse the car while still wet and it seems to work for now. but defo want to protect it properly!

Get it waxed!

After its waxed just give it a coat of QD after a wash and it'll top up the protection.

A QD on a dirty/sandy car is bad though... good job you've got a white car, hides it better!

I'm going to treat mine to a professional detail every year. Until then I am a regular visitor at the local jet wash.

Buy a Karcher... Will pay for itself before long.

Have to agree alex.I bought one years ago and it has been a great purchase. I've got a snow foam attachment which works very well. I then dry it and wax it if have the time. If I don't I use a QD spray which brings up a nice shine.

Pretty much the same as me then.

Snowfoam is brilliant. Mine gets waxed every 6 months which is plenty. QD keeps it good in between.

Great minds think alike and all that!

I've akways used AG. I always think about using something else but in reality I never do.

The instant show shine looks interesting though.

I use the Autoglym HD wax and its excellent.The Megs detailing stuff is good but I do prefer the Autoglym.Might try some of the Dodo Juice stuff on the Adam to see what its like.
