I had the unfortunate luck of having a headlight go the other night, been replaced with halfords ultra brilliance lamps.

Always had good luck with the halfords ones, I've heard a few horror stories of lasting 3 months etc but I've clearly been lucky

Also I have a confession...... See below :(

Car washed!

For those who have asked in the past, here's a little comparison of pre and post snow foam on the car.

Pre Snowfoam

Post Snowfoam and Jetwash to remove foam and surface debris

So as you can see, Snowfoam loosens the top layer of grime and muck, mine is a fairly gentle foam too, more aggressive ones may remove more.

And here's what you should expect to see after the rinse off!

Usually around here the phrase used is "Don't clean me, just plant something" :P

My car is covered in all manner of muck at the moment, mostly diesel residue and bird muck.
Washed it this evening and it's already rotten again.
Waste of time and effort at this time of year.
