  1. Yeh thats i wondered...Stick to just wax. Since owning the Z (4 years nearly) Ive only done 1 extensive polish/decon.....since then a safe washing routine and topping up with spray wax now and again has kept it looking tip top (No winter/bad weather driving helps). Its now time for a full decon and polish, sidenote im going to give the new carbon collective clay applicator dooda a go this time. So for me its worth the money for a decent long lasting premium wax.
  2. I do highly rate AF tripple and have used it on all my dailys so far, its very good stuff if you want an easy relatively fast decent finish.
  3. I think it was soul or temptation, was defo one of the cheaper AF waxes in the range. I used there wax applicator (waxmate) but didnt dampen it. I found i was having to only do half a panel at a time to allow it to be buffed off with any sort of ease, it was applied very sparyingly because of this. (Was done on a cool cloudy day as well). Almost a bargain on amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Auto-Finesse-Desire-car-wax/dp/B007FR4PQQ Im thinking maybe the illusion or desire.... do they work well when applying a sealent over the top? My Z doesnt see much harsh weather, only driven on dry days and put away for the winter.
  4. So ive used almost every brand, but havent bought any new wax for a few years, last was auto finesse which was good but pretty hard to buff off. I have plenty of sealents so looking more for a decent wax to make the azure pop! Im not on a budget as such but dont want to pay "scene" tax. Options ive looked at so far are the bilt hamber double speed (Often comes highly awarded when googled) at a very good price. Or something from the Soft99 range (gloss king/fusso) which i was under the impression these are more of a sealent than a show shine giving wax? I know Autofinesse desire is very good but is that much better than others considering the cost ? Awaiting reply from the Gloss god..... @ilogikal1
  5. No your bang on correct, we make and process demin water at work and yes demin water is perfect for rinsing a car as it wont leave any marks, soft water still will leave marks just to less of a degree. But no drinking demin isnt good and a softner needs to be set up to the water ppm you have in your area.
  6. I have done a search and gone back a few pages but cant find much on water softners? Basically im looking what ones are good to look at without spending a fortune ? My area has very hard water, to the point where if you leave any water on the car it leaves solid white spots that almost need polishing off....which is a pain when after drying the car it continues to run out from around the rear screen and under the spoiler down the bumper for about an hour... Are the cheaper inline ones that connect onto the outside hose any good? or is it better to spend more and have a proper one installed into the water system ? Any advice gladly recieved
  7. I assume this is gone....dam I live in norwich as well.

  14. So me and a buddy of mine really wanted to do a drift day, after having a look around we decided on RDX drift academy (was always my choice due to using zeds) after speaking with RDX they suggested going for the silver package due to me and my buddy both having plenty of performance/rwd car experience. On the day. We got up there nice and early for the afternoon slot about 12:45. The academy is set up at Rockingham (concrete jungle) large area with water sprayers all around keeping the surface wet. Then had a quick chilled out introduction on drifting/the cars and the instructors experience (all BDC drivers) while being kitted out with almost brand new looking overalls and helmets. Then after signing the waiver is was straight onto the cars, the zeds have all had welded diffs and coilovers. There was 5 of us on the silver course between 2 cars and 2 lads were on gold who were on the other side of the drift pan and had there another car. I was teamed with my mate and 1 other person for Tessa whittocks car, I was up second so I jumped in the passenger seat, Tessa then explained our first challenge which was controlled donuts around a cone, she explained where to use power to initiate and how you use the steering to allow the car to power around, she then performed a few donuts and it was time to switch seats. After a few goes and Tessa’s very encouraging tips I was getting the car around the cone while feathering the throttle. After a few goes at this it was time for the next person to jump in. Even though there was 3 of us sharing that car I felt like it wasn’t long before it was your go again. Our next challenges were figure of 8’s, longer corners with entry from both directions then finally a cone track to bring all the elements together. Tessa was a right laugh and really wanted to get me to nail the whole track with one constant drift transitioning between each part...finally it all came together on my last run and we were both celebrating! Tessa was very encouraging a good laugh and a fantastic tutor and drifter, I did speak to Matthew denham a fair bit as well who was a top guy and those who know drifting know is an amazing driver To finish the day off we had a passenger ride for a fast tandem drift battle with Matthew denham and Martin Richardson in the driving seats which was very cool being inches away from the other car! Left Rockingham about 4:30pm All in all I had a fantastic day and highly recommend it for someone that wants to give drifting a try, the tutors were all super relaxed,fun and easy to talk to and question. Im already thinking of when to book doing the gold course and getting the whole day to build on what I learnt.
