    My mate's effort on his Ibiza:

    Blatently hadn't been washed properly in years. A few hours of attention, back to black, and Zymol wax had it looking like new :). Zymol wax is very hard work compared to Autoglym, but worth it just for the smell :D Even managed to get most of the swirls out.

    Damn, I've been foiled :( :p



    F355: Would you say the clay bar is worth using? I've heard it is a lot of hard work. Does it get rid of small scratches/hard to shift dirt?

    Not got any pics at the moment (forgot after waxing it the other day). My weapon of choice is P21s paste at £20 a tub.
