    Yup, pretty much in a nutshell.

Frankly I never believed the hype until I saw the proof myself.

    Look at the videos on my page - you can see why it works. The key thing is how long it lasts since if it only lasts 6 months it is not worthwhile imo. But I have the 5 year version on one car for two years now and it looks the same after washing.

    Default Gtechiq Crystal Serum - a Detailers perspective

    Okay, this car has Gtechniq Crystal Serum Black. It was done six months ago. Itís been through our shitty weather without a wash for two weeks. I am going to do a regular valet on it using Gtechniq G Wash. and snow foam. Watch this space.

    Can you video what happens when you just snow foam and rinse...interesting to see.....any car look immaculate after a wash in pictures so it doesn't really show much

    I am truly speechless at the almost cult like following that Topaz has, I have seen a lot of their work 1st hand & it's ranged from good to horrendous, I wanted to send my car there as people were falling over themselves for their PPF services so I drove to Leeds to check out a 918 they had done, it was shocking so I went elsewhere.

    PPF certainly has it's place, I cannot live without it!

    To be clear I only use them on tricky cars that I feel they have done enough of and others may not have the experience on - otherwise i'd use the king of clingfilm himself on here - when i give them the tricky cars they seem to put there best guys on it

    I haven't used Nick Phelps (Not Tim) Knickers - because I normally need to do something last minute because I am disorganised, and Topaz can usually fit me in quickly. I have had great work from Topaz to be fair on 4 or 5 cars now.
    I think Nick is probably better, and cheaper, and everyone I know has been really happy with his results so I should give him a try - Thing is Topaz have just opened a second location in Bristol which is on my doorstep.
