GOLFFRR+Auto Finesse

I decided I would detail my car again this weekend using some new products and some old products from our good buddy Martin at Auto Finesse.

products I used:
AF gloss tire shine
AF citrus
AF crystal glass cleaner
AF rejuvenate
AF wheel mint wax
AF tripple
AF spirit
AF sprits

and also AF Finale which I have not yet used yet.

The AF sprits (interior product) is one of the new products I had yet used. Wow this stuff is awesome. It really cleaned up all the interior pieces nicely. And it smelled really good

Also the first time I had used the gloss tire shine and crystal glass cleaner. Both of them are awesome I would highly recommend both! I had always used the BMW window cleaner since I get it for free and thought that it was the best stuff out there untill now. This AF crystal glass is great! def works better then anything I have used so far.

AF gloss tire product worked great as well. I applied and left on. I took a drive and got home to find no splatter on the side of the car at all. It works great.

All in all I would highly recommend Auto Finesse products they work great!

Here are some pics.

I love working by hand, it's so much more involved. This post makes me want to make another big order.

it def makes you appreciate it much more when you get done i can tell you that! If you haven't already try the crystal glass cleaner and the spritz interior cleaner those products were very impressive to me.

Looks awesome. How easy (or hard) are these products to use for someone who has no detailing experience to use? Just a weekend car washer over here.

Easy - that is why we made them. No bullshit products that you can use in the sun or shade without any hassle.
