Sorry guys, you'll have to forgive me being a newcomer here, and i'm sure its a question that's been asked 1000's of times before, but is the Porsche garage applied Protect and Care / Bodycare package worth taking out? The total cost is £ 300 (which equates to lot of beer money!) and as i've had it pushed from day one i'm assuming the salesman is on a hefty commission! Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Welcome mate

Get the Zymol Vintage if you want to spend over £1500.

Otherwise forget Zymol.

well said Mark, and this is from someone who sells Porsches for a living.

The Vintage kit is excellent VFM.

G-Unit,

Looking at your signature:

"its all about the swissol"

what affiliation do you have to the copy Zymol?

Welcome!

I'd compare the cost to a proper valet by a Zymol (or Swissol!) approved valeter.

Some treatments (lifeshine, diamondbrite etc) claim to be very long lasting and have had good reports, but no personal experience.

Or if you enjoy polishing, buy a Zymol/Swissol kit and have a go yourself!



Indeed, Mr G-Unit... time to reveal your affiliation to Swissol? Not having a pop, just interested...

Hey G how you doing?,

I know from PMs you are into show car type spec finishes on your cars and they look very impressive indeed, but do you not agree the zymol starter kit is good VFM?

If not based on your experience?? what type of kit would you put together for the same money?

ps.. G Unit has no affiliation with swissol i asked him about prices etc ages ago!

First of all, my apologies if I upset Admin. It wasn't my intentions Phil :oops:

Hi Rob, Im not sure but did you have a different username before?

Overall I think the starter kit is good value. When I tried Vintage, it was a small tub from this kit I think. What you got to remember is I think but im not sure on this your car is silver, therefore you can probably only go so far and anything after that the difference will be negligable. Im not saying it wont look good, as it will still look stunning.

The key to anything is the preparation mate. If your car is covered in swirls/holograms etc and you went out and bought the most expensive wax in the universe and then got your mrs to rub it on the bodywork with her soft hands etc. It might look ok to some.

On the other hand you can get your rotary/PC out and correct the paint. Get a tub of P21S out and the results will knock your socks off.

If you look on Shed17's (spelling?) porsche you can see how beautiful his car looks.

Go and take a look on

and look at paint correction for more details. It saves me typing it out.

Why not keep everyone happy G-Unit - How about "It's all about the shine"?

At the end of the day, it's a Porsche. It might shine like a tanner up a sweep's arse (oops, betraying my age) but that's not the be all and end all. It's bloody quick and it is a proper sports car - it handles very well but on the limit, it sorts the men out from the boys. It isn't about how much time you spend polishing it, it's about driving it. Keep it looking nice and it will get you more when you sell it, but enjoy it for what it is. Get out there and JFDI.
