Im a bit scared to venture into the auto part of the group but here goes, having got a nice shiny new car, i would like to keep it nice and have noticed adverts in the dealerships for a sort of polish that you can have that keeps it nice, but i never read it properly, is there a good treatment i can get that will protect my car as we live in a street with lots of trees that are dropping lots of bits onto it and i dont want to take it through the car wash every day lol,

Very important you remove any bird droppings from your car right away as it contains an acid which will destroy yor paintwork if left on.

Tree sap is also a problem as it is very hard to get off the vehicle.

And keep away from auto car washes with their gritty brushes.

Quite right Chris, they scratch your car badly and give the paintwork a dull appearence.

Trust nobody but yourself to wash your car.

Ive always cleaned and waxed my own cars, so never had any interest in the "paint sealer" from dealers.

However, from what I have read its all a bit of a con! Sure, you take the treatment and you get a paintwork warranty - but in all honesty, it should cope fine with the conditions we have here.

If you park under trees, then sap will get on the car and on the paint. Wash it frequently - once a week, and polish it yourself - if you cant get time to do the whole car, focus on polishing the flat surfaces like the roof, boot and bonnet where sap is most likely to stick.

There are loads of good products out there (10-15) that will keep the paint in perfect order without costing the earth, and certainly wont cost the dealers "seal" price. smile
