Back in February I decided to give the Carplan No1 a try. CarPlan was not very high in my list of proven detailing product manufacturers - if I'm honest I used to scoff at most Carplan stuff, preferring to buy much more expensive products, but after hearing a few good reports I reckoned it was worth a try - nothing to lose, etc. This was in preparation for our twice a year trip to the Balkans to visit our relations in several countries. Of course Covid 19 arrived and we haven't done any significant journeys this year. This was a major clean-up after the Winter, so I washed and polished the car as usual with a whole load of Autoglym products - Polar Blast - Shampoo and Conditioner - Super Resin Polish - Extra Gloss Protection - followed by a once-over with BMW Nano Wax. Normally that would have been the job finished - but now it was the turn of the Carplan No 1 It's simplicity itself to apply - it's water-thin and needs no effort at all - just spread it on with a microfibre and then a quick buff-up, and you have a super ultra shiny finish. Water beaded on it great - unfortunately no pics were take - silly me. But here are some pics from mid March, after 6 weeks: And here are some from today - after 6 months: Not a lot of difference between the six weeks and the six months - I'm well impressed, especially as the car is never garaged, just sits outside in all weathers, and has had nothing except a quick hose down every now and again. Impressed so much so that when it comes to preparing for winter - for me that means when the clocks change and I get the Winters wheels on - I'm simply going to give the car a good wash and go over it with the Carplan No1 and not bother with any of the other polishes and coatings. It's amazing stuff - it's like teflon this 'nano effect' - any dirt or grime just rinses off - except for the flies of course - which get the AG Active Insect Remover treatment which doesn't affect the underlying coating. In all my years of cleaning and polishing cars, since long before the word 'detailing' was ever thought of, I've never tried such an effective product - and it only costs £10.40 at Halfords - or £6.90 at carpartsforless.
