Ah I see we lead very different lives, that is not a criticism but were I live in the winter the lanes will be covered in mud, the verges will have growth rubbing down the sides of the car for at least 3 months a year I wonder if it it is worth the Gtechniq coating I hope it is as its going to get splattered in cow poop etc and I might not have time to wash it for a month in winter..... A fresh cloth is the least of my worries :mrgreen: :roll: :mrgreen:CarlFRZ434 said:I get mine private valeted a few times a year and do it myself rest of the time. Get initial valet with a coating treatment, then do it yourself but with a lambs wool wash mitt NOT A SPONGE!!! Ask your valeter what he suggests to wash your car with in between his visits. If it's cold and wet just get him round for a 'service wash'. Not much more expensive than the Polskis! Plus the valeter will use new clothes not ones used on everyone else or a dropped chamois with grit in it. Even washed cloth's in hard water areas get line scale in them hence why my valeter only users new sealed packet cloth's.
