    I'm flat broke now. Everyone's getting a framed picture of my car for xmas. I've just bought her some Eibach Pro street coilovers for xmas. Considering a trip to R-tech for a full carbon / injector clean. Although may do this next year now.

    Looking really good. Respect you using Triple and Glaze. Remind me what Finale is? LOL. I should do a pic of my car for worst it's ever looked at the mo. I think they tested my coilovers in a field.

    I find that microfibers make it harder to clean windows... I use kitchen towel or a proper glass cleaning cloth. I get fog in mine when i don't use Air con if it's raining etc, I see this in new cars as well... I guess you could get an anti fogging spray like you can put on goggles which may help...

    Or maybe the caramics glass cleaner protection by Auto Finesse?

    I use micro fibres and meguairs window cleaner, you to spend a bit of time to get it right, windows are a pain in the ring. You just need to be patient. Having them clean does help with the fogging but I just have my Climate control on all the time.

    You'll find that everyone uses something different and swears by it, but just doesn't work for others... thats why detailing is so expensive as you need to try lots before you get the winning formula..

    Is it Aqua coat that you spray on while the car is wet and then you dry it off I cannot remember...

    Very kind of you.
    This. I have been doing it for a while but I am still open to learning, I have tried a few things for windows particularity as I find them annoying, the worst thing with micro fibre clothes is they tend to leave a bit of dust behind still attached to the spray so you then spend the next 6 weeks chasing it round the glass until you go mad. Ive tried a few different types of clothes but never really found anything that makes it easy.

    Window wipes work okay but I find they can leave a smear... although they may be better now as its been a whole since I used them. Might just grab some and see what they're like now.
