Duragloss (review of sorts)

I'm new to BMW's but not new to polishing cars... And I wanted to let people know my favorite polish here if you're interested... I've had really good luck with products from Duragloss. Everything I've tried has performed above my expectations. The finish from the '101' polish is as shiny and clean as I've ever seen.

I've had bad experiences with Mequires... the wax left a residue.. and generally doesn't last very long for me. The Duragloss lasts a long time... months generally... and is super easy to apply and remove.

I think it's the perfect products if you don't want to obsess but also don't want to neglect... I've seen Zaino products' results and while they're spectacular, they took hours and hours of proper processes and regular maintenance. I have about 95% of the shine of Zaino, it lasts longer and requires less obsession.

It also doesn't ruin rubber or plastic molding... And, if you miss a spot and find it a week later, it buffs away just as easily as the first day. I waxed my car last weekend and it still feels like I just did it... and it's rained a few days this week. So, I'm pleased as always.

Anyway, I highly recommend the wax, the car washing liquid, the multipurpose cleaner, and the glass cleaner. I've used these products regularly for a few years with great success. I have no affiliation with the company.. in fact, the products are kind of hard to find... But, glad I did.

Thanks,
Carl
