No haven't used this one. However I have discovered a great product called "Showroom Shine". I have a Mica black Sport and have been using this for the last 6 months or so. No need to wash the car as the polish is applied to the dirty car and then polished off. It leaves a great finish which protects the paintwork. The car always looks great (fantastic shine) and the paintwork feels the same as when I first picked it up new. I think the dealer must use a similar product. My car will look good even if there is a hosepipe ban.

I would of thought that this can scratch and damage your paintwork, coz you could be rubbing bits of grit and dirt into your paintwork if you are not washing it first

That's exactly what I thought when I tried it, and was pleasantly surprised. I have not washed the car for months as this stuff is so quick and easy. It seems the more you use it the more protection is added to the bodywork. My son has started to use it on his black car and is as pleased as I am. I wish I had shares in the company.

You need a good wax to keep it looking good, I used the showroom shine stuff and all it is really a quick detailer, I use wax on mine.
