Anyone used 'Black Wow' - it is for black exterior plastics and is recommended for MINIs

Just wondered if anyone has any results as is £20 a bottle and the bottle is VERY small

Thanks

Ditto never heard of it

I always use the cans of t.wax black in a flash for tyres etc & or aqua wax for trims

Sound expensive for a little bottle

There are a lot of other products out there & better value

PS getting the supplies in for your GP??

Hi guys thanks for your responses Very Happy

After doing some research on D.World i decided against - from what i gather it was made by a guys father on there and there was questions as to whether it actually ate Shocked into your plastics !!!! not only that there is ALOT of preparation to use it and use it effectively bounce so i decided to go with Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel - to be honest iv used most of the Chemical Guys range and have to say im a big fan thumbs up. Sorry guys but T.Wax and A.Glym just dont do it for me Sad but each to there own and all Smile

and my wallet got considerably low when i then saw and purchased some DoDo Supernatural Wax, DoDo Red Mist, Chemical Guys Wheel Cleaner, Chemical Guys Citrus Wash and Gloss etc etc affraid

Which will be here tomorrow yahoo

PS Mini S Mad - Yep supplying up thumbs up

You need a rubber for this Dave. It really does work!! I rub over the polish before I wash the car, wash it, then use Megs plastic and Vinyl stuff. Brings it up a treat!! Very Happy

I use Car Plan Back to Black on my trims and black out detail! I think it s an excellent product! Probably underated!

You can buy either a spray or a creme. The Creme is the one I use and brings the black areas silky black and even, lasts around a month or more! Covers wax overspill easily (although a pencil rubber will be effectie for this)
I have had the bottle fo around a year and a half now and not even halfway through!

You just massage the creme in to the areas you want covering then buff up with a clean cloth!
Their spary is best put on to a cloth then applied to black areas. I found the Creme had a much better effect and longevity than the spray!
Any one who has seen my car knows it looks good!

Best of all?....... Is's only £4.49 from Halfords!
