Hello all (first posting - be nice to me...)

Has anyone tried the "Supaguard" type of paint protection treatment? I have seen lots of posts regarding Zymol etc, but can't find a mention of Supaguard.

Apologies if you've already discussed/discredited earlier

HAD MY WIFES CAR A LEON CUPRA TREATED WHEN BOUGHT IT NEW LAST YEAR AS KNEW IT WOULDNT GET A LOT OF ATTENTION WHEN COMES TO CLEANING/ POLISHING AND SEEMS PRETTY GOOD AS STILL GOOD FINISH AFTER A YEAR OF MAINLY BEING PUT THROUGH CAR WASHES AND ONLY 1 POLISH WITH THE TOP UP STUFF THEY PROVIDE. INTERESTED KNOW WHAT YOU DECIDE AS JUST TAKEN DELIVERY OF BASALT C2 AND PONDERING WHAT TO DO IN THE WAY OF POLISH ETC.

I noticed in Porsche 911 World that
www.dentmagician.co.uk
do a Teflon coating product called "TST" that costs about £350 to be applied and "keeps the car in showroom condition" making cleaning easy. It comes with a 5 year guarantee on new cards and 3 years on used ones, and there's no re-application at all, you just have to use their shampoo (supplied with kit) to wash the car with.

Has anyone tried this or got any comments? Is this the same sort of thing as Supaguard?

Sounds similar.

I have had various discussions surrounding these "magical" products, all I can say is just make sure you speak to someone who has used it before parting with your money. Zymol offer a completely chemical free alternative in the form of hand crafted waxes.

OK, I'm may be slightly biased since I am a Zymol stockist, but, I've heard a little rumour that Porsche GB are preparing every Carrera GT with Zymol prior to delivery...

In the past I could rarely be a**ed to wash my car let alone polish it, but with a 996 I suppose I should give polishing a try. I've heard good things about Zymol over the years but never investigated it. Is there such a thing as an low-effort polish, or anything remotely close?

Wax/polish application is always going to involve some kind of effort (unless you pay a detailer to do it for you of course! - I can put you in touch with a good zymol detailer if you are interested).

The hard work with zymol is at the HD-Cleanse stage, where you need to remove all the crap that has accumulated so as to enable to wax to bond properly. Applying the wax is easy and doesn't take very long, many people actually apply a couple of coats to provide extra protection. The wax can be applied using either an applicator or by the palm of your hand. Now the best bit is when you come to wash it, the dirt practically falls off as it can't bond with the wax layer!

If anyone is interested in buying any zymol products, please let me know and I can forward you a coupon which will provide you with free delivery within mainland UK.

I've had a look at vertar.com. For a one-time HD-cleanse of my 996 will a 250ml bottle be sufficient?

Can you also tell me roughly how many treatments a 226g tub of wax (eg Carbon Hand-Crafted Wax for my midnight blue car) will last for?

Thanks.

Yes, 250ml would certainly be sufficient. I would guess between 10-15 applications could be made from 226g.

I would recommend you purchase a starter kit rather than just buying a wax and cleanse as you also receive Clear (to wash with), plus a Treat of your choice and the necessary applicators which you can restock on later.

OK, last question: individually there's 236ml Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner, but the starter kit comes with 200ml Leather Treat. What is the Treat?

Thanks.

Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner are from the Premium Range, and Treat (a leather conditioner) is from the Hand Crafted Range and is designed to be used in conjuction with the Estate Glazes and Hand Crafted Waxes.
