Advice For Spirit Blue St


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Well I'm picking up my Spirit Blue ST3 on Monday and I need some advice on cleaning products for it.

With my ZS I've tended to just use a place that charges £15 for an inside and out job once a month if I get round to it, but this ST is going to be my pride and joy so I want to take a little more care.

What would you guys recommend? I have a snow lance for a Karcher washer so I could do with something for that as my previous stuff I've used was junk and smelled of gone off banana.

It's had some paint treatment that means I don't need to wax the car for 3 years according to my dealer, so I'll have at least 2 days worth of protection on the car naturally. 3 years is a push but 2 days may be a safe bet.

Good colour choice matey.

The blue looks great when clean but does tend to show the dirt quickly and the wheels well let's not go there.

I use a good quality snow foam followed by a wash with meguires shampoo when it's dried I use a 3 stage polish/wax then gloss enhancer

In between waxes I just use the gloss enhancer

As for which brand you pays your money and all that. Everyone has their own opinion on this I suggest you get well known brands from a detailing website and see what you like

Kieran our resident Detailer, gingerflame, has a website "Yorkshiredetailing.co.uk" have a look at his stuff very competitive prices
