Good choice on the alloys, the black Triglav look better in my option that the standards. The virtual cockpit is worth every penny, would hate to go back to the old dials. We got the driver personalisation mode too which we use allot, £45 extra for that and you get a third key too..
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

Very nice choice, loving the black Triglav alloys!

Also very shiny - next task is to keep it that way! I've just invested in the full suite of the Autoglym Polar range including the Polar Blaster gun. I've been using the Polar Blast snow foam for a while, but just in my original Karcher foam adapter - the Autoglym one seems much more substantial. I also never realised I was meant to dilute the Polar Blast in the snow foam gun's bottle, so have probably been using it at a far greater concentration than intended! I'll follow the instructions from now on (should have read them first I guess, but typical bloke..! ;) )

I've now got the Polar Wash and Polar seal to try this weekend as well - seems a good way of applying both the wash and the seal (via the snow gun with my Karcher pressure washer). I'll let people know how it goes!

Video about it here (but not using the Polar Blaster gun):

Also all of the Autoglym range is currently 25% off (until the end of June):

(p.s. I don't work for Autoglym or have any connection to them, I just like their products, but also Meguiar's, GTechniq, plus too many other car cleaning products over the years to mention...!)

Marshalls? Hope you find them sweeter and cuddlier in their after-sales service than I have....

Here’s a question that is probably stupid as I know next to nothing about detailing, but here goes. I have a small Karcher pressure washer with a car shampoo attachment, can you put snow foam through that? I don’t wash the car that often so I’m not going to invest in anything to specialist.

I wouldn't think it will foam properly, although I think some of the latest Karcher washers have a "Mix" setting on the lance, so it might work. I think the tank is meant to be for a detergent to be added, but they generally aren't specifically formulated for car washing - I don't think the Karcher detergent claims to be pH neutral, for instance.

There are plenty of people out there who don't get on with using snow foam when washing a car and think it's just a waste of time by introducing an additional step during the washing process. Personally, anything that can reduce the amount of dirt (or more specifically grit) attached to the car before you start washing it with a wash mit or sponge has to be a good thing.

You can pick up a snow foam gun for a Karcher pressure washer for under a tenner from Fleabay - doesn't need to be a particularly "posh" one, but then again, the cheaper ones will not give you as thick a foam as a more expensive model. You pretty much get what you pay for...

Good video here that shows the difference:
